Re:2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel
VIN WPXXXXXXXXXX6
Your Case Number is XXXXXXX

Dear Mr. MBQ:

Porsche Cars North America recently made contact with you regarding a repurchase of your 2013 Porsche Cayenne Diesel. After a thorough review, we have decided to repurchase your vehicle for the amount of $54,042.86 as a gesture of good will and in the interest of customer satisfaction. If there is a lien on this vehicle, the loan amount will be paid first and any remainder will be paid directly to you. Within several days, you will hear from a repurchase specialist representing Porsche Cars North America, who will be able to go over all of these specific aspects of the state laws with you and who can answer any questions you may have about the repurchase process. In order to make this process as smooth and fast for you as possible, we ask your full cooperation in supplying your repurchase specialist with any documentation he or she may require to facilitate this transaction.

Thank you in advance for your timely response.

With my best personal regards,

M. Mason
Meredith Mason

"as a gesture of good will" (not to mention in compliance with the express requirements of the settlement agreement)...

What options did your Cayenne have?

How many miles on it?

How much $ did you receive to accept the fix?

Not many extra packages.

Moonroof, premium package, Bose premium sound

The mileage is close to 120k miles.

Received half of the emission repair money, which is $2084.19x2(participation+emission repair). There was a previous owner.

Unbelievable deal for a car with 120k miles on the clock. Congrats!

Amazing indeed! Considering the number of high mileage 3.0 vehicles under emissions warranty and dealership service incompetence, I’m sure we’ll be hearing more stories like this. One more reason not to “tune” your ride until the warranty has expired.

I am holding off on the fix until next April, when my car will have approx 110k miles. Let’s hope they have problems fixing mine while the mileage is between 110k and 130k miles.

Well I wish they extended the olive branch right when 30 days was up to save lots of frustration, instead of after the customer's panic and desperate search for a way out. We all know there will most likely be no good will without the lemon law provision.

I was pretty close to drive the car out of the 18 months/18000 mile reoffer period. Car was 16k something miles when the HPFP went out. If it had been driven one more month, I would had been out of luck.

You'd better drive the car relentlessly, non-stop, day & night right after the fix, like there is no tomorrow

After the fix I may also look for the worst fuel possible.

Just be careful and don't squeeze the gasoline nozzle in the tank, LOL.

BINGO! One of my friends just got a phone call from Audi stating that they'll buy back their 2014 A6 TDI for $53k with 50k miles on the odometer.

The car went to the dealer four times for O2 sensor problem.
