The cars auto idle off function that saves fuel by turning the engine off at stop signs and lights in inoperative. I have had it into multiple dealers 4 times since 12/2020 with the complaint. In my opinion there is a temperature sensor that is malfunctioning and not allowing the car to go into the fuel saving mode. I am told that they are not able to make this function work properly. Wasn't the car certified for emissions and fuel economy with this function in place?

I WAS INFORMED AT MY LAST SERVICE THAT I NEED TO HAVE MY PASSENGER AIRBAG SEAT SENSOR REPLACED AND ALSO MY TIMING CHAIN COVER IS LEAKING OIL. I NOTICED ON NHTSA WEBSITE THAT BOTH OF THESE ISSUES ARE DOCUMENTED. THERE WAS A SAFETY RECALL FOR SIMILAR 2016 Macan'S BUT MY VIN ISN'T LISTED. PART 573 SAFETY RECALL REPORT 17V-133. THERE IS ALSO A MANUFACTURER COMMUNICATION (#D2000.1)RELATING TO THE OIL LEAK. NHTSA ID # 10182254. THESE ARE VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIRS AND UNCLEAR WHY THEY SHOULDN'T BE COVERED BY PORSCHE WHEN THEY ARE DOCUMENTED PROBLEMS.
Last year around january, adaptive cruse control stop working after dealer "fixed" almost closing a collision ( vehicle in motion), today park assist stop working 360 degree view completely off and no sound of proximity obstacles, ( vehicle in motion pulling of parking lot)
