All true except part of the last paragraph. You can certainly go to a local indy and your local PCA will know the best around. I think the members here are enthusiasts and have been around the block so they know the warranty is good. After all, you can do the maintenance yourself. Suncoast sells convenient maintenance kits for all the models. The potential problem with the indy is the word "qualities". They need to be able to know about and perform the campaigns and have PIWIS. If not, then you will probably not get the latest campaigns or software updates done automatically. "Qualified" matters.
That brings up an interesting question.
I do my own maintenance, but I also figure I will see the dealer perhaps once a year on average for warranty work and/or recalls. I know I will hear about any recalls directly from PCNA and I'll arrange to have the dealer perform these, but what about the non recall campaigns such as the software updates you mentioned?
I assume when Porsche pushes these out they tell the dealers to implement these whenever they see a vehicle in their shop for service, just as other vehicle manufacturers do. But do Porsche dealers generally do this? I assume PCNA reimburses the dealers to do so.
I do see on the service receipt for the last time I was at the dealer for a warranty repair, in addition to the specific repair, the dealer did something called "PQIS911", and on the line below it mentions "PWIS PWIS JOB, 39 ISPP", (N/C), which I assume means "no charge". Not sure what that might be, but I'm guessing at the very least the dealer checked for outstanding campaigns.
When I picked the car up after the work was complete, the service representative handed me the receipt and mentioned nothing about it.
Is there anywhere I can find out what non recall campaigns have been issued without spending a huge amount of money to do so?
