2002 996 C2 replacement engine


Vehicle Information: Year: 2002 ; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 16000;

I was one of the ones who had my engine hand grenade due to the dreaded intermediate bearing failure. When this occurred I told my local dealership that I wanted a full 4 year warranty on the new engine. I did this expecting the worst...a big "NO" from Porsche AG. To my surprise I just received a letter from PCNA stating that they were issuing me a four year / 100,000 mile extension on my current factory warranty which has two years remaining. The key thing here is the warranty extension is on the entire vehicle, not just the replaced engine. I have to give credit to PCNA here. They handled a bad situation for me with class and went above and beyond to keep me happy. One last question; do you know what Porsche has done to the replacement engines to ensure the intermediate shaft does not fail again?
