Water getting inside your Porsche?

Written by Juliana Veiga, Service Advisor

If you own a Porsche, you understand how special these vehicles are and feel privileged to having such a luxury.  However, they require continuous maintenance to perform optimally.  While maintaining your Porsche can be a considerable expense, repair costs due to forgone maintenance can outweigh maintenance costs significantly over the lifetime of your vehicle, so it’s important to pay attention to your vehicle’s special needs.

A common occurrence for Porsche, particularly the Cayenne and the Macan, is drainage difficulty.  These vehicles have a system of drain valves and tubing that helps to keep water and moisture from affecting its sensitive parts.  If your vehicle spends the majority of time outside on the road, it’s important to pay particular attention to this. The chambers frequently get clogged with leaves, sticks, dirt and debris that significantly hinder adequate drainage.

For this reason, it is important to do regularly scheduled maintenance and to do ongoing inspections - especially during the autumn months when the issue is more likely to occur.  Your Porsche specialist will clean up the leaves and debris found blocking the drains to ensure that water is draining adequately from the vehicle and not in your vehicle.

Please contact a Service Advisor to learn more or schedule a vehicle check.
