2012 Porsche CAYENNE Power Train Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID1657420
 Internal NHTSA #11321883
 ManufacurerPorsche Cars North America, Inc.
 Model Year2012
 File date07/03/20
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThe transfer case is faulty. It was replaced at 26,000 miles and now it is acting the same way again at 48. 000 miles. I was entering the hwy and the car jumped forward and suddenly lost power before jumping into gear. This is not safe considering there was a car in front of me and behind. Did not cause an accident but could have. Dealer admits the transfer case has been a constant problem with 2011-2017 cayenne but refuses to totally cover replacement. This is my second issue with the transfer case and after some light research have come across many owners with anywhere between 1 and 4 replacements. Porsche will not cover the total cost of the repair (approx. $6500). How can a company like porsche be so arrogant as to understand and accept it is a faulty design but not make restitution to its loyal customers,
