Looking at getting a Porsche Macan. Wondering about the type of cost for maintenance?

Simple Oil change alone is $600 at dealer.
PDk service is just shy of $1000 at dealer.
Brakes replacement (all 4 with new rotors and pads) is over $3000 at dealer

For me, I had done all maintenance at Indy shop, except PDk service.

Major service is called at 60,000km. So, if you are leasing, maybe do a 3 yrs lease so you are to miss this.

Macan prepaid maintenance plan - 2019 prices

Three years $2050 plus tax.
Four years $3250 plus tax.

Therefore, another 10-15% increase for 2021 and beyond should be expected

Cant' seem to find info on prepaid maint plan while searching. What does the prepaid maint plan generally include?

You can also get consumables like brakes and rotors from FCPEuro, it brings a lifetime guarantee (once your brakes wear out you can send it in for a free replacement, I used this for my 911 that was heavily tracked).

Macans, S and above are fairly bulletproof, the base is the one that has problems.

As you can see, first couple of yrs are mainly oil changes (@15k or 1 yr), lots of check this and that and interior cabin air filter change.
Don't see that prepaid maint option in the configurator on porsche website. I did submit my config to the local dealer. Will ask them about this option when they do contact me.

I'm assuming you can bring these aftermarket brakes and rotors to Porsche and have them install them? so just paying for labour?

It's the S I'm looking at :)

No. Porsche dealers won’t install any aftermarket parts. They fear for liability as they have no ways of knowing the quality of them and they just don’t want to be sued.

Macan brakes are typically good for around 55,000km range, if driven conservatively.

The prepaid maintenance plus any other protection plans are sold by the business/finance manager. They are not listed on the configurator.

I think Booblehead's Macan has some problem with leaks.

2015-2018 had major issues. Avoid!

Op is shopping for Macan version 3.0. .. should be okay. The questionable area is the PDk still even today.

Why Porsche Macan SUVs have the big oil leak problem? from 2015 to 2018 Porsche Macans with the 3.0L and the 3.6L V6.

Also what's your experience been like with FCPEuro while being in Canada? Shipping fees ok? duties?

Forgot about them and need to get rotors/pads soon.

OP, are you looking at new or used? The new 2022 is a much better upgrade as the entire line got engine upgrade. Too bad timing doesn't work out for me. The delivery timeframe is more like April in 2022 if not later.

I used a freight forwarder, so it was cheap. I used planetexpress for their oregon warehouse (because no sales tax) and forwarded it to my place in Toronto. Very reasonable imo.

Find a good Porsche or European mechanic in your area as well, you will need it.
You don't necessary have to go to dealership for service like Bobblehead mentioned.

Keep receipt of your service record from a licensed mechanic/shop.

Call me ignorant. Porsche doesn't have free regular maintenance for first 4 years of ownership/warranty period (similar to BMW/Audi/Benz)?
