Hi everyone,

as per title, is that a good idea? In alternative, I can find 2017 Macan base with similar mileages at the same price. I have a few question:

1) The cost of the car is well within my budget. However, should I expect major maintenance problems and expenses?

2) Furthermore, how long should I expect it to last before buying a new car would be more convenient than mainteining it?

3) Will the 6-cylinder engine of the Macan S be more troublesome, from a maintenance standpoint, compared to the Macan base engine?

FYI, I usually drive 75k miles every 10 years, mainly on highwais and in low-traffic, small towns.

Many thanks in advance for your answers.

First, get a Pre Purchase Inspection on the Macan S. Second the Macan S is so much better than the base Macan, so get the S. I don't think the 6 cylinder has any more issues than the 4 and MPG isn't much different. The 2017 is the same body and interior as the 2015, so no advantage there. Feel free to save yourself a ton of money by using a German auto repair shop versus the dealer. There is no reason you can't get 150K miles from a Macan S.

Thank you for replying, James III. Would a Porsche-certification (the 111-point inspection) make for a PPI?

So the vehicle you want to buy is at a Porsche dealership? Is it a CPO or just inspected? Go to the service center and ask the mechanic the difference between a PPI and Porsche Certification. I would expect a 2015 is going to be relatively problem free if there is no accident history and it's not from the snow belt states where road salt can cause damage underneath.

I don't about the 2015 4 cylinder but my 2018 is great and I see no reason to spend for an S but that is a good price

It is a CPO and yes, the vehicle is sold by a Porsche dealer.
