Does anyone have a cost estimate for this work at Porsche dealership?
Mine was $805 plus tax in PA by the dealer in 09 with 87K on it from new. My dealer is good on price, in NY and LA you can double that

My 06 CTTS was just confirmed by the dealership that the plastic coolant pipes have already been replaced. One less thing for me to worry about.

I "sold" the company cayenne s to my wife when I got a turbo. Should I file in my name (still in my name at the dealer) or file in hers?

Seems a simple idea - they're trying to drive the future repairs to the dealerships.
So, there's a chance to get a reimbursement after performing the replacement not by a dealership?

It sounds like I should sit and wait for the settlement papers or be proactive and get'em thru specific source...

Save yourself a lot of money and throw the settlement papers in the trash. The work done at a dealership will likely be WAY more than $375 more than if done at an independent shop and you will avoid the attempted shake down by the dealership for other work. Porsche's lawyers probably calculated this whole charade as cost neutral to the company.

Thumbs down Lawyers get $4.5 million and I get to pay . . .

According to the settlement website, the lawyers will get $4.5 million.

I get the opportunity to pay $2,200 at my dealership in Minnesota and the possibility of getting $1,500 refunded sometime after the March 2014 hearing.

My 2006 Turbo S has 59,950 miles on the odometer as I type this today. I purchased it CPO from the local dealership after somebody leased it for 3 years. My dealership indicates the last time they replaced a customer's tubes it was about $2,200. I have the plastic pipes and 49 miles left before my possible reimbursement drops from $1,500 to $1,200 for a preventative replacement at the dealership.

Since I am not even sure we will get the "refunds" after the March hearing, I will certainly blow past the 60,000 mile cutoff this week and reduce my possible reimbursement. As it stands, if the hearing goes in "our favor", the lawyers will get the $4.5 million and I will get the opportunity to replace the pipes at my dealership for $1,000 (I pay $2,200 up front and get $1,200 refunded later).

The "fairness hearing" must just apply to the lawyers.

That's sad Bigfoot.
Considering buying the replacement parts for your vehicle is going to be close to $750 parts and if you do the labor yourself probably over $800 in some other materials, tools, beers, etc.
if you enjoy working out maintenance maybe this is an good excuse to get busy with your tools.

Nevertheless this replacement of parts is not optional due to the fact is proven it will put the driver and passengers in risk, depending where they are driving..maybe in High risk.

I personally think Porsche still owe a lot to every Cayenne owner and moreover to other Porsche models owners experiencing same risks with those plastics pipes.

They should learn from Japanese (Toyota-Lexus) in regards recalls responsibilities.

Any updates regarding when settlement funds will be disbursed? Anyone receive a check yet? Went to the class action web site, and no updates there. Did read a court document that essentially approved the settlement, but that document is about a year old.

I want to know as well...Not really familiar with the process so I wonder if I can expect something before end of the year...

It is not in Canada but I got a voucher for a few hundred dollars from Porsche towards any service or parts and labour at any Porsche dealership in Canada.
I had my pipes checked at Volkswagen and they told me it is aluminium so it looks like someone has had them replaced but will still get it checked at the dealership next week. The dealership is about 5 hours drive and hence a 10 hour drive up and down.

Default Any updates

It says this on the website:

Settlement Status Update: On April 18, 2014, a single objector filed a Notice of Appeal appealing the District Court's order granting final approval of the Settlement Agreement and overruling the objections. As provided in Question 14 of the Class Notice, it is uncertain when the appeal will be resolved. Resolving appeals takes time, perhaps more than a year. Please be patient and consult this website for further status updates including the status of settlement benefits.

I predict that will take months but less than a year.

However, I should add I am often wrong.
