2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The Phaeton is a great car. I have had some electronic problems with sunroof and tire pressure sensors. I also had the rear end go out. All of these issues were covered under warranty. The steering needs a little better feel, it is a little light. I don't think you can beat this car for the price. As one would expect, this car's gas mileage is low because it is such a heavy car - it weighs 5,400 lbs. However, on freeway at high speeds this car gets about 20 mpg. In city driving it only gets around 14 mpg. The interior is beautifully finished.

Best Features

The fit and finish are great. It has the best, most pleasing interior that I have seen. It is a great high speed car, quiet and fast.

Worst Features

Provide a better location for the trunk and gas release buttons.
