An incredible used car value

2004 Volkswagen Phaeton Sedan Premiere Edition W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)

Review

Coming from a BMW 7 series, I was concerned, but this is a fantastic car at a great value on the used market. Make sure to get a CPO or aftermarket warranty though just in case. They seem to be quite reliable, but no doubt quite costly once the warranty runs out. The interior is huge, the engine very powerful, and enough little touches that show they thought of everything. Only downside is that VW dealerships don't know how to service customers for a higher end vehicle like this. They are used to people buying $15k cars, BMW, Mercedes, Lexus are not and thus, do it right. Buy it!

Best Luxury Sedan

Review

Thank goodness the Phaeton bombed in the market, because it allowed me to get a low-mileage W12 for barely more than $50,000. I've been in almost every hoo-hah car on the planet and this one's the best. It's outlandishly fast, solid, beautiful and incredibly comfortable. The stereo is awesome, and they could fight a nuclear war outside and you'd never hear it. By the way, I will never understand why luxury car buyers complain about fuel economy! If you're too cheap to buy a lot of gas, then for goodness sake don't get a 12-cylinder car.

My 2004 Phaeton W12 is my 8th Volkswagen. I am very happy with this car, it is quiet, powerful and very well designed. Elegant, but understated - 'stealth wealth'.

after 20 years of declining Benz quality and unable to stomach the cosmetics counter styling of thier interiors it is a godsend that VW has rescued car buyers from having to drive the class favorite of orthodontists and garmentos. After 8 months and 25000 miles I'm ready to order the wagon and coupe, if VW will just build them.

Built the way Mercedes used to build

Review

15 yrs. ago Mercedes had the best built cars. Now VW creates "build quality" equal to Lexus, better than BMW, and way ahead of Mercedes. The ride, handling, fit and finish are phenomenal. Gas mileage is an acceptable 16 MPG in mixed driving. The W12 engine is smooth/responsive and the car so well insulated that it glides super quietly along the highway at 70 MPH with engine RPM @2200. I wanted understated elegance and excellent fit/finish and got what I paid for. I strongly recommend this car if you don't worry about "hood emblems" and just want fine quality, design, and function.

i test drove a 12 cyclinder with after market wheels, rubber, and exhaust system in scottsdale... wow. this is a hand-made vehicle with bentley heritage for under $ 100.k the vw badges are round, so owners can easily replace them with round bentley badges, or customized with owners' names, or even "phaeton"... the best car i've ever been in... including bentleys and rolls'

Truly an unparralelled car for the money. Owned VWs for a long time and this is the best one ever. Smooth power, beautiful interior. I would buy another if I could afford it.

Review

I loved this car from the minute I saw it, it had great design and I knew it was reliable because of Volkswagens history. Also, I loved the features, most of wich were standard, they were easy to use, but attractive at the same time, this car is the best by far. I couldn't be happier with my new purchase.
