Hi All
I seem to have the same problems as discussed on here.........just back from motorway trip and the shuddering is getting much worse. I am in Spain at the moment so that should be fun!! My Macan SD is coming up four years old in April, only covered 28300 miles.I took out the extended warranty for an extra year.
What would you forum members recommend? Trying for repair here,or attempt to return to uk? not due back until mid May????
Help please

In your position I would speak to a local OPC and get their recommendation. They might speak to Porsche HQ and/or Porsche GB for warranty support but I would try to get it fixed asap rather than delay and risk the trip back to UK.

i have booked my 2.0 petrol in for exact same problems as described here.
3 years old in mid april 19 so hopefully will be fixed under warranty.
Any idea how long they will have the car for?

Its a 2 - 3 hr job but they probably won’t have a ‘box on the shelf so allow 3 days ( if they decide it needs replacing)

i had originally booked my car into the dealer i had bought the car from but they couldn't supply a courtesy car until end of april by which time the warranty would have run out so re-booked into Sutton Coldfield dealership and they booked it in within a week and will let me have a courtesy car while mine is with them.
Also told me that if transfer box needs replacing can get one in for next day and get it done straight away.

They had booked me for a new Macan but when i got there this morning sales had sold it so they gave me a Boxster.
If my car is not ready for tomorrow they are going to change the Boxster for something bigger as i am going away for a few days on sunday on golf trip.
