  • This is what I like about independent mechanic shops. They usually don't charge you for an inspection. Takes him 5 minutes to scan the airbag meanwhile Porsche wants another 1.5hrs at $190/hour on top of the $190 they have already charged this man. I had a similar experience at an Acura dealership. 45 minutes to scan the ECU for power steering faults for a warranty issue that they refused to cover... takes no more than 5 minutes to scan...

  • This sounds like a Sonic automotive center. We have something like this here in Franklin, TN....Porsche, Mini, Jaguar, Audi all have their own little areas and then Mercedes is on the other side of the interstate...all owned by Sonic Automotive. We bought our S500 from the MB dealer, they persuaded us since "we are a dealership and certified MB technicians have gone over this car closely"....but they didn't even catch the accelerator pedal failure (common problem in those cars). Push the pedal to the floor and the car doesn't by wire pedal. I got a genuine MB one from ebay and installed it myself in 20 minutes for $150. But other issues with the dealership...we won't buy from a Sonic dealership ever again. I have an indie VW/Audi/Porsche repair place I take my VW to. They are honest and fair and have ALWAYS done the job right the first time.

  • Definitely depends on the shop. I rarely go to Porsche Grand Rapids, always do everything myself (85' 944 so pretty easy to work on and learn), or use an independent shop if its something I can't do in a parking lot or I don't have the tools to, but never had a problem with them. Once explained the part I needed for my steering wheel (later found out they are called horn sleeves), and they knew what I was talking about, ordered them, and I picked them up a week later for $5 + Tax. Sucks that you had to go through this crap.

  • You paid for an hour inspection and you got an hour long inspection. We see this all the time when someone brings in a 15-20 yr old Porsche with a ton of miles and hate when you give them a real inspection for everything you truly need and its a $15-20k quote, they freak out that they didn't even pay for that for the car. So the dealer is bad if you don't quote everything you need and bad when you do.

  • I'm a service advisor at a Honda dealer. When someone brings their car in for an inspection, I charge them 1 hour ($135), and I make sure the technician tells them EVERYTHING going on with the car. I do not let them do a half ass job on checking out the car. 1 hour diagnosis to basically do a multi-point inspection is gravy work, and I insist the techs be very thorough in their inspection. Most of the time, the tech's spend like 15 minutes on the car tops...The least they could do it be thorough.

  • Where this comes home for me. I was looking at cars n bids on a car from euro asian bob. Might have wanted an inspection from the porsche dealer but after seeing this video months ago I decided I was better off just trusting euro asian bob and not getting any inspection from a dealer. I could not get access to the wizard or get the car looked at.. so I passed on the car. And that was sad.

  • Imagine if that was your pre purchase inspection and they missed the brakes and struts and motor mounts and other front end parts. Would have bought a car not knowing it needed another 3000 or more in work. What a terrible dealership.. Imagine trusting those idiots about a bad ims bearing or bore scoring or cooling intermix issues. Could cost you. 12000 to 15000 dollars .

  • i had a 1976 Porsche 930 turbo that kept blowing the turbo seal. i took it to the dealership twice to the tune of $2800.00 each time it rolled into the service door. i found out the problem was a $ 2.35 dollar gasket. i contacted a private shop for the gasket and he showed me how to lower the engine thru the wheel well access plate i replaced it myself within an hour. BTW this was in the 1980s and after i replaced the gasket it never blew one again.

  • Bought a used A4 back in 2014 at the Audi branch of the dealership. They were still running out of a temp building at the time. Sales experience was good, but the service department has been a constant battle of mine ever since. Nearly every visit, they either break something or don’t do the repair right. No exaggeration, it’s been a hassle every visit. Glad it’s not just me whose been at odds with them. On a personal level, the people are very nice, but the skill set in the service garage is amateur at best. After watching this breakdown of pricing and maintenance, it’s time to go visit The Wizard in Newton for both my Audis.

  • Speaking as a tech I’ve estimated a small novel on cars spending close 2 hours looking over a car and I can tell you that drives 90% of the customers away saying they are trying to rip me off. The other 10% will just brake up the repairs as we suggest. As far as diagnosis if anything for a 1 hour used car check, that’s not gonna happen. As I said before I’m only getting paid an hour to spend close to 2 looking at your vehicle. Will inform you of warning lights and code numbers but I’m not diagnosing. Remember he got mad and said this would only take 10 mins but the wizard said I will have to find out why it’s not communicating. You could be tracing wires etc. Most dealer techs get paid by the job not by the hour so for me to spend an extra hour or so to diagnose your warning light(s). I do agree that the tech should have done a better job but for all we know the tech did but the service advisor made the decision to not estimate all that stuff. Can’t always blame the tech.

  • 175k and you can actually call it a "Running and Driving" car. Someone is drinking too much kool-aid. For a 2000 911 with 175k maybe 3-4k at most considering you're going to need to invest another 10-15k to bring it up to speed and at that price, you could have bought the same with miles below 60k. Wait, hold on here. You guy inspected the usual suspects but never waded into the engine? What's wrong with this picture?

  • The technician is only a paid an hour Depending he's skill level and seniorityon technician could be anywhere paid between 14 and $40 Not counting taxes that they take out of his paycheck. They only paid him an hour for that inspection. I guarantee you if you would have go to the car wizard . And say I will pay you $14 can you completely go through that car and tell me what's wrong with it he would laugh at you. I think that technician did a great job for what he could do in an hour. He had to walk around get you parts prices also. Type all that up and present it to the service advisor. You are ridiculous and what you're thinking. It is not the technicians fault that the only pay him an hour's worth of wage to do that kind of inspection.

  • IDC who makes the car Chevy Volkswagen BMW ford Subaru Toyota Honda doesn't matter. Nobody ever should go to a dealer for service after the warranty is up 9/10 times they will be over priced. The stealership loves to try and say well we will do it right. But a simple hour of searching online for a good shop with a good rating that specialize in said brand car with a labor warranty to back up there work for half the cost of the dealer. Honestly I think people are crazy to go to the dealer for service outside of the warranty.

  • I worked at carmax and ordering parts from the Porsche dealer when ever we had a Porsche. THAT was always interesting. I am convinced that Porsche dealers are just plan lazy and do not care. We would here stories from techs that work at Porsche that they would just work on their on schedules, if you brought a car in that need for instances an coolant hose. First it would have to come from Germany... around 6 inches of straight rubber hose, that's issue number one. That is 2 weeks worth of waiting. Then it's billed massively and the tech would claim like 8hrs to replace it and they would stretch that 8 hrs out over a week. Claiming they are busy, they are not 3/4s of the bays are empty. The reality of the situation is the part can be replaced in an hour by a competent mechanic. But they just don't care, and the main reason why is Porsche has no competition. There is not another porsche like car you can buy so its just them and they seem to act like that too.

  • 6000 dollar money pit. Maybe you should have bought a used boat. The only reason I would ever buy a car like that, is because I can do all the work, myself. Same reason I bought a 50 year old wooden Diesel trawler. So what did they charge for the PPI, one hour labor? What did you expect to get for one hour? A thorough inspection of a 996 would address the engine,and include dropping the oil pan, to check for bore scoring. If that is detected, it could cost 30K for an engine overhaul. You got what you paid for, so what are you complaining about? $190. Was only an hours labor. You can’t do a thorough PPI on a 996 in that amount of time. The second inspection still didn’t address the engine, where, if there is anything major that has to be done, it will easily exceed the value of the car. We have this same model, but a 1999 Cabriolet, which I maintain myself, along with three other earlier air cooled 911s. Did he even give an opinion on the condition of the engine? Is it a replacement engine, or does it have all that mileage (170K) on it? Everything is broken on your car. You just don’t know about it yet.

  • I had a PPI done at a Porsche dealership here in Germany a few years ago. I think the hourly rate was actually cheaper, but still very much on the high end. I am in no way a mechanic so I wanted to have a professional take a look at it. Also the asking price was quite an incestment for me, so I asked to go in the garage to have a look mysself. I knew I would not spot anything that wasn't glaringly obvious, but I also knew I would be angry at myself if I spent that much money and there was something obvious I could have seen. When I came in, the mechanic was just about to lower the car from the stand again as he was just finished. I told him I would like to have a look myself, we went from front to back, he said something like the suspension parts look good and I just took his word for it, other then rattling at some things and probably look stupid I would not have known what to do anyway. He said the car was basicly fine for its age. When we came to the back I noticed quite a bit of oil on one side of the engine. I asked "Where is the oil coming from?" to which he replied "What oil?" One side of the exhaust system was comletely covered in it, I thought the guy was joking. He was not, "Oh I missed that"... I mean finding out where it was actually coming from was probably more work than I paid for, but not noticing it at all, the guy did not even look. There were some other small issues with the car, but mostly I did not trust the dealerships oppinion after that so I did not buy the car. Yes, I wanted to buy a used car from a private guy, and just went to the dealership for an inspection. Since I did not live there it was also clear I would not have any future work done there. But paying over 100€ for about 1 hour work that should not matter, for that price do a good job or do not offer the service in the first place.
