Attorneys open investigation on potentially defective drive shaft center bearing in 2002-2010 Porsche Cayenne vehicles


Porshce Large

Attorneys have opened an investigation of the 2002-2010 Porsche Cayenne (First Generation Porsche Cayenne) vehicles which have an allegedly defective drive shaft center bearing that is prone to premature failure.  When the drive shaft bearing or its support fails, it may lead to extreme vibration and noise, and may damage the drive shaft itself, which would affect the drivability of the vehicle.

This is a common issue in the 2002-2010 Porsche Cayennes that reportedly was corrected in later model years. Porsche dealers typically require replacement of the entire drive shaft if the drive shaft bearing fails. This repair will can cost several thousand dollars.

Just got this issue on wife's 2009 Cayenne. No recalls on this issue still. Need to get it checked out and definitely don't want to pay dealer price to fix it all.

I own a Porsche 2004 Porsche Cayenne, This has been a problem for me as well. I was driving and all of a sudden I heard a thumping noise. I thought my tire was flat, but it was not. I dove it again and the noise got worst. I took it in and they told me my drive shaft was damaged. They mentioned that it was a common problem with Porsche. I paid lots of money to have it repaired.

I own a 2009 Porsche Cayenne and just had the same problem. The problem started less than 4 miles from my house, I took to a foreign car specialist and they said originally it was the drive shaft bearing and that plus the drive shaft kits would be $650.00, they called me back later and said the full drive shaft needed to be replaced for several hundred more dollars.

I purchased my Cayenne 2009 approximately in the year 2013. A year and a half after owning it the center bearing of the driveshaft broke. Fortunately, I was covered by the warranty. But now I'm going through a frustrating situation where I've replaced one center bearing once and two complete driveshafts in the last 3 months. I don't know what is causing the problem but is draining my pocket. Can you please advise.

2004 Porsche Cayenne driveshaft problems paid lots of money for repairs. I just traded this car in due to it turning into a money pit . Failed emissions test , coolant issues , loud thumping on gear shifting, fuel pump etc. Please help ! I would love to know why I was never informed about any of these issues, recalls and class action lawsuits.
