2022 Porsche Cayenne Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Lane Departure & Structural issues are among the top complaints from vehicle owners

Updated on Author: Brian Jones

The 2022 Porsche Cayenne is a luxury SUV that’s meant to impress. The automaker claims that the lineup contains “quintessential sports cars,” but it would appear that there’s an identity crisis occurring. This luxury model suffers from a defective lane departure system and a shoddy structure, both of which are causing the internet to fill up with complaints from customers.

Problems with the Lane Departure

Today’s safety systems are designed to keep occupants protected and safe, but the 2022 Porsche Cayenne might be causing more trouble than good.

One Cayenne Forum user wrote, “Lane Keep Assist however is disappointing. It fights against you if you fail to indicate your intention to change lanes. But worse than that, on a winding country road it tried to pull me into the middle of the road telling me I was too close to the edge of the road. I guess if the road markings aren’t clear it doesn’t know where you should be and so if you’re driving country roads that aren’t well marked I think you’ll get irritated with this function very quickly.”

Sometimes, technology has too many bugs to be profitable. That’s exactly what is seen with these safety systems in the Cayenne. They can become more of a nuisance than the benefit they might be worth, but only because the engineers haven’t perfected the system yet. However, if the automaker is going to claim to be the “perfect (quintessential)” model, then it should really follow up and provide that level of capability. Otherwise, it might be time to stop bragging.

Problems with the Vehicle Structure

There’s no question that the 2022 Porsche Cayenne is an expensive car. For any customer to shell out this kind of dough, they need to know that it’s going to be built with plenty of purpose and it’s been well-executed.

Another Cayenne Forum author feels differently. “I know Porsche isn’t looking to sell cars to everybody. But this physical design flaws in the center console, software set up, and the Porsche management system is downright dangerous from my perspective. Looking at the screen, and touching the screen with your finger, is no way to drive a car. The top highlight area (in attached photo below)….I have NEVER USED. Wasted use of a small space. Get rid of it. The circles are the AC/Heat controls. Good luck trying to adjust the passenger seat heat controls (yes, you do it a lot, even when you are alone in the car). You cannot SEE the controls from the driver position! It’s blocked by the Shifter!”

It seems that Porsche needs to go back to the brainstorming phase of design as customers are not thrilled with what they are seeing. Maybe the luxury automaker can take some of the money it is making and reinvest it in engineers that truly understand how to build an SUV. Otherwise, it’s time to throw in the towel and start selling some lower-dollar cars. People probably won’t complain about these issues with their Chevy Spark. Maybe Porsche is simply setting the bar too high.
