Own a VW for the Price of a BMW?
By bkaw on
2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I loved test driving this car. It had
the best seats of any car I ever
driven. I currently own a 7 series
BMW and while this car compares very
favorably to the BMW, I have to wonder
why any consumer would take a chance
on a new, unproven luxury car for
about the same price as the new BMW
745I. If this car was $50,000 I would
have written a check on the spot. In
order for this car to sell they will
have to discount it to attract the
BMW, Mercedes, Jag crowd.
Beutiful fit and finish, great dash
layout. Seats that massage your
back! Great road feel. This car's
interior is like a 5 star hotel suite,
you won't won't to leave.
Lower the price. They have built a
great car but for almost the same
price as the competition. Lexus
introduced the LS400 for a price of
$36,000. Once it was accepted as a
great car, they raised the price to
almost $60,000 today.
