2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

There is only one problem with this car: Every time you turn the car on you have to go into "economy" and turn off rear air conditioning. Do the Germans always drive with backseat passengers? Overall nicer than an Audi A8L even when the Phaeton is stock.

Outstanding Value

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan w/4 Seats (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

This car, with the outstanding deals being offered, represents great value. The quality of the interior materials is above average for the class. Yes, it's heavy, but it rolls down the road in fine style and the structure feels bank vault strong. I've been averaging 17-18 mpg in a mix of city and highway driving, not bad for a large car. Overall I'm very impressed so far, and look forward to driving this car every chance I get. Those who don't consider this car because it's has the VW emblem are making an error, there is nothing like a Phaeton for the price. Consider this; the Bentley Continental is built on the same platform and shares most of the Phaeton's running gear!

Best Luxury Under 150K

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

for about 1/3 less than it's cousin, Bentley Continental GT, the Phaeton delivers an unbeatable mix of luxury, safety, and comfort that is unmatched in its category. A hand-built quality to it's finish, 4 wheel drive, an ingenious indirect ventilation system, a decent gas mileage (about 18 mpg over the last year), make this car the best value in its class, beating hands down the S500, 745iL, and A8. Test drive it and you'll be sold as well.

Review

Awesome performance, styling, cool, fun and for the under 50 successful crowd... however, one week after her 5000 checkup, a transmission module went, she wasn't shifting... lights on everywhere. two weeks later at the dealership (did they know what they were doing..........) Returned looks- feels as good as new. Still in love with this unpretenious and elegant automobile. some marketing from corporate might help her future...if not, an orphan.............

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

Handling, comfort, and electronics are superlative. The discount more than off set the absence of brand recognition. This is a car that you can drive coast- to-coast, in any weather. It is so comfortable and offers so much control on highways or country roads, it makes travel pure pleasure. In short, if your ego can handle a brand with less status, this is one very fine automobile.

2005 Phaeton V8

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The only small negative about the Volkswagen Phaeton V8 is the poor fuel mileage. For a 5,200 lb car, I espected this though. Otherwise, I think it is just about perfect. It has excellent fit and finish. It has the people comforts you expect in only the best cars which cost much more. its engine is very powerful and the car is very smooth and quite at high speeds.

Review

I have had many luxury cars, but my Volkswagen Phaeton W12 is the best all around vehicle. it rides like it is on railsl, handles amazingly well, is built like a tank and exudes luxurry, inside and out. It is the perfect understatement for people of taste and class.

I have owned Mercedes and BMWs for all of my adult life. Not only does the Volkswagen Phaeton perform better, it is more comfortable and far more stylish!
