‘Always nice to hear about a reputable service department - dealership.Just another data point for those owners who experience this exhaust bracket failure.....
I dropped-off our 2015 Turbo earlier this week for its 60k service, front brake pads, brake fluid flush, and 4-wheel alignment (first time for each). I also reported a metallic vibration / drone occurring around 1100 rpm, and asked them to check for a failed exhaust bracket. The service advisor called later to confirm the exhaust bracket was cracked, and that they'd already inquired about good will repair coverage from Porsche. Otherwise, the repair would be about $1600 given that the car was 6 months out of warranty. The dealership asked if they could keep the car overnight until they got their answer, and I agreed since I had a Base loaner car.
Got another call the following day saying Porsche approved the good will repair (parts and labor), and that they were just waiting on parts. Repairs were completed around noon of the third day, and it drives and sounds like a new car again.
Don't know whether Porsche would do the same for a second owner, or whether approval is easier when it's a highly optioned car, but it's worth a shot. I was very pleased with how proative the dealerhsip was, and how it was all handled without any fuss.
My exhaust also made a noise similar to a slipping alternator belt. The fix was to replace the downpipes with their updated design. You can read about my recent experience in post number 142 above......Recently, I started hearing some noise that sounds like worn-out alternator belt or heavy whistle like sound when I revive to 1200-2000 RPM ish and let go on gas quickly.....Has anyone run into similar issue?
