I just had my Porsche Panamera for a little over a year but then its heating system has stopped working. What must be wrong?
Nothing stinks when your heating system malfunctions especially during the winter months. This is the time when driving to your destination becomes an agony. A clogged heater core, leaks as well as corrosion could cause a heating system to stop working. Both the AC and heating systems should be periodically checked to ensure they are in good condition to be able to deliver their optimum performance. Hence, make sure you schedule an appointment with your authorized service technician to check what has gone wrong with the heating system and conduct the essential repairs.
I've been having problems with my Panamera mirrors when they are supposed to be automatically adjusted but end up sitting in a weird angle. This is definitely a hassle especially when I'm supposed to be concentrated on the road but the weird angling of the mirrors is stressing me out and causing me to panic whenever other vehicles would do overtaking. What should I do?
The incorrect movement of the Panamera's automatic mirrors has been a cause of complaints by many of its users. Reports indicate how the mirrors adjust at a weird angle when the vehicle is in "reverse" and how the same angle is retained even when it is placed in "drive." You preferably know the importance of the mirrors since they allow you a clear view of both your rear and the sides. However, the bad adjustment could be a main source of problem. Porsche has developed a special system for the automatic adjustment of its mirrors and since it is electrical in nature, the vehicle's internal computer system is at play. That said, a DIY repair is not advisable. Hence, bringing back your vehicle to the dealer for proper evaluation and repair is what you have to do.
My Panamera just had its oil changed a month ago but just this morning the dashboard light indicator flashed warning me of low oil levels. I haven't acquired more mileage for the past weeks since I went on a business trip and left my car unused in the garage. Is there any explanation to this?
Porsche basically advises its Panamera users to conduct a short break-in period right after taking out their high-performance vehicles straight from the dealers. This is just a precautionary measure to ensure things are working the way they are meant to be. Likewise, oil change is set every 10,000 km but reports show that Panamera users start topping off the oil before they even reach the 10,000 km mark. Others are said to be adding a quart of oil for every 2,000 km. Once you see the dashboard light indicator showing you've got low oil levels, you need to imperatively check under the hood. Ignoring such a warning could bring forth serious damage to your engine. If you notice that your oil level vehemently goes low, then chances are there is a problem under the hood. There could be a leak somewhere that must be located the soonest. The best thing to do is bring it to your dealer for proper assessment. Qualified technicians there would be able to address the problem better.
