2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
This car has so many excellent
features, I don't know where to begin!
The car is a pleasure to drive, day or
night. I understand they only sold 900
nationally, so it is very exclusive,
almost rare. I am getting 23.3 mpg on
the highway, which is not much worse
than my Chrysler 300M Special I traded
in. Dealer has been good, but not up to
Seats, soft leather, dash vents, night
time interior lighting, style inside
and out, exclusivity, price/value
relationship, extreme quietness, build
quality, interior size, engine growl
Make the infotainment system shut
COMPLETELY OFF with one button. You
must now go through several steps to
turn the a/c and fan off, and when the
car is restarted, it goes back
to "auto"operation... a pain. I wish
it had ambient footwell lighting, like
the brochure promised.
