Hello
I recently purchased a New Dealer exec 2014 Porsche Cayanne S from a dealer in chicago. I will not name them
yet, because they are trying to work something out with me.
Basically about a week later I found out that the car had driver and passenger door replaced and repainted and a quarter panel
repainted.
The total bill was about 5k, which I have in my possession.
Dealer is offering to CPO car plus give me in writing that it won't show up on car fax.
I think they should offer me cash for potential diminished value, because if a future buyer runs the vin
at a porsche dealer it will show up.
Dealer also says car was never wrecked, and he did not know about this.
I do believe that part?
What should I do?

Take what they are offering you before it's too late. If they refuse, are you going to file a lawsuit for something like this? CPO warranty is a great bonus plus if it doesn't show up on Carfax then what's the harm? If you're unhappy tell them to take it back and give you a difference unit I guess.

I may not file lawsuit, but they are offering to buy back for what I paid plus sales tax. But I will be with out my funds or a car for 2-4 weeks.
I feel as a major dealer they should back the car, and a P-Car exec drove the car, Porsche NA hid the body work on the car by not telling anyone.

If you weren't made aware of the damage prior to purchasing, that's extremely poor business and a dealership that should be reported to corporate. With that leverage at hand, you can let go of the vehicle and have plenty of room to negotiate what you want. I would never consider doing business, let along high-dollar transactions, with an entity that was willing to be dishonest on various levels, as that dealership has.

That's what I am thinking. But they are not offering much besides a buy back, plus my sales tax. I was wanting a CPO, car fax guarantee of 5k and 1 free service. I will post the dealer name if they don't give me good faith deal. They are threatening to let it go to legal.
Should I contact Porsche NA?

Take the buy-back and report the dealership. Is the guarantee plus add-on's worth having to work with a dealership that's dishonest and willing to take legal action against a paying customer? I doubt it. Take your business elsewhere.

Well the good thing is I won't need to service my car there.
I bought it from a dealer 3 hours away. I am negotiating the buy back.
They want me to wait 3-4 weeks for the funds, which I find unacceptable.

Sometimes it's better to sacrifice a bit. Get a VERY NICE loaner car from them until you get the funds back.

Well they have agreed to buy it back for what I paid, plus my sales tax I paid. Fair enough for me, since I do believe they did not know
about this when they sold the car to me. This work was done on the car at a different dealer when a Porsche Exec had the car.
They almost CPO'd it for me, but I did not want to pay the extra 3k since I don't keep my cars that long.
I am sure they would give me the loaner but then I would have to drive 3hrs back to return it.
They have also agreed to overnight the funds to me.

Say that you'll return it to another Porsche dealership, and P of NA can deal with it.
The guy tasked with driving it back will thank you lol

I should do that, but I don't want to waste any more time on this.
I just want my money back so I can get another car!
