Porsche Macan and Cayenne Repair and Maintenance
Porsche, as part of the Volkswagen/Audi group, uses many of the same components for its fantastic SUVs. Our expertise, tools, and training in VW/Audi translates perfectly to Porsche SUVs. Why pay a small fortune at the overpriced franchised dealer, and wait for weeks, for high quality service? We operate dealer-like scanners, and have the right tools to service your Porsche Macan and Cayenne.
Our talented mechanics have extensive experience and training in the complexities of Porsche maintenance and repair. However puzzling the issue you have may be, we have probably fixed it before.
Porsche Diagnostics by CarHavn
Seeing the 'Check Engine Light' or 'EPC' lights on the dash? Maybe the 'Add 1 qt. of oil' message is rearing its ugly head? We can help. Audi diagnostics is part art and part science. A regular scan reader is not enogh. Audi has its own propiertary codes, that can only be read and decoded by a specialized diagnostics platform like Audi's own ODIS (the Off-Board Diagnostics Information System) or Ross-Tech's VCDS. We operate both. The 'art' part is interpreting those codes and investingating the specific conditions in your car that need to be corrected for the code to go away.
Off-Board Diagnostic System is the same platform the overpriced franchised dealer uses. We use is as well.
VAG-COM Diagnostic System is the premier independent software for diagnostics and coding.
Porsche Timing Chains by CarHavn
Most of Audi's engines require the replacement of the timing system, including chains, tensioners, guides, and pulleys. All 4, 6, and 8 cylinder engines will at some point need this service. Neglecting it can lead to irreversible engine damage. The replacement interval is around 80-100K miles. Symptoms of poor timing include: extended cranking times, misfires. engine 'skips', and engine codes related to 'crankshaft/camshaft correlation'.
Our mechanics have the training and experience to do this very delicate job well. We have done hundreds of timing chain jobs.
CarHavn has the tools to perform Audi timing chain jobs well. Tools are engine and year specific.
We use Audi parts for this delicate job. We use VIN-specific kits to ensure perfect fit, and a great result.
Porsche Transmission Service and Repair
Audi transmissions are marvels of technology - designed in-house. Audi is also smart enough to specify a 50K mile maintenance interval, requiring oil and filter replacement along with differential fluids. We also offer transmission rebuilds. We can replace and reprogram mechatronics units, replace sleeves, clutches and solenoids.
Fluids Get Dirty
This is transmission fluid at 50K miles. It has clearly reached the end of its useful life.

We can replace valve bodies and rebuild the entire transmission - and reprogram it for proper operation.
Porsche SUV Maintenance by CarHavn
Porsche's recommended maintenance schedule is terrible. The book calls for minor maintenance every 10,000 miles - which is a recipe for disaster. Most specialists like CarHavn recommend service every 5,000 miles or 6 months. That includes a high-quality oil (LiquiMoly is our choice) and filter (MANN is our go-to) and a full inspection.
LiquiMoly Oil Service
Our go-to. A legend in Euro circles, LiquiMoly is a top-quality oil made in Germany.
Oil at 5,000 miles
There's no way oil lasts more than this. Lubricant and detergent properties have been compromised.
At every service your Audi is inspected to nip issues on the bud. Preventive maintenance is the key to reliability.
Porsche Brake Service by CarHavn
Porsche does not make brake pads, rotors, or sensors. They buy from their supplier (Textar, ATE, or Pagid) and re-brand them. CarHavn's brake service is superior, as we use Zimmerman rotors and Akebono pads and a high-quality sensor (or equivalents). All at a fraction of the overpriced franchised dealer. Upgrade for less!
Complete Brake Service
Zimmerman rotors and Akebono pads for the win! We can also reset the brake wear indicator on your dash.
Zimmerman German Discs
Proven zinc-coating resists rust and increases performance and longetivity.
Akebono US Made Pads
Hundreds of brake jobs with no complaints. Perfect fit, no squeal, and low dust. A great pad.
