Porsche Maintenance & Service Schedules
Whether you’re driving a Porsche Macan, Cayenne or an older 911, it’s important to understand your car’s maintenance requirements based on time or mileage and plan accordingly. In the sections below, we highlight the maintenance items required at time or mileage intervals for individual chassis.
Clearly, there is a significant difference between the maintenance requirements of a youthful Macan and an early 996. In truth, despite the standard publications, maintenance is about your driving style, mileage covered over time, and road conditions. There are wear and tear items that are recommended to be replaced based on mileage and elapsed time. However, you simply can’t do better than a physical inspection of a wear item, to determine the right time to change it. When do you need a new air filter? When the old one is dirty!
The cost of annual maintenance will vary from model to model. Time and mileage dictate the frequency with which additional maintenance items such as tires, brakes, spark plugs and filters add to base line annual costs. For some perspective, the annual maintenance cost for a minor service interval on a Porsche will almost certainly be less than you pay for your TV subscription! Maintenance costs on a Porsche are likely to be higher than some other manufacturers – more specific expertise required and a higher degree of work difficulty on some models.
