The W12 blows away the competition..

2005 Volkswagen Phaeton Sedan W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)

Review

It seems all the automotive editors are most concerned about whether or not VW should have built this car and whether or not people will pay this much money for a VW badged car. The editors instead should concentrate on what a magnificent car this is and the fact that it is practically hand built in a marvelous new 'glass' factory in Dresden. It is rumored that the Bentley Continental (with which the VW shares many parts) will soon be built alongside the Phaeton. There are approximately 300 W12's out there in the USA. It has been a tremendous buy at the '04 closeout prices, and well could become a classic.

Best Car Ever

Review

After one year of considering buying the Phaeton, I finally decided to actually purchase a W12 Phaeton. It now has 1000 miles on it and I find absolutely no problems with it. Sure, I wish it had a DVD navigation and a phone, but still it is a very well built car. The fit and finish exceeds all other cars I've owned. The paint finish is superior to all cars I've purchased under $120,000. This car needs to be advertised more as its destiny is uncertain. No matter what happens, this car will always get attention. Everyone that sees it wants to have a closer look and they have a fit over it. While you still can, buy one. It is a great car that is so underrated.

Great Car - Best In Class

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

Review

Test drove 2004 745LI, Audi A8L, Lexus 430 and the Phaeton is the better car. It took me 4 months to get over the VW emblem on a 73K car and to finally lease it. No major problems at all in 3 months of ownership. Dealer has been fantastic in their treatment. It really is a shame that the Mgt. at VW had to put the VW logo on this car. It should have been a separate line. However, VW just did the reverse of everyone one else. Lexus, BMW and Mercedes keep coming up with small cars to slap their logo on, and VW designed one very fine LARGE, ROOMY, SMOOTH AUTO. I have owned a BMW740IL, Mercedes E- 320, Lincoln Towncar. This Phateon by VW is the finest auto I have ever owned.

Review

This car is far better than any lux car that is not a "exotic" Some small improvemonts are still needed. a touch screen dvd nav system, xm radio, better gas milage, blue tooth phone system and make standar the technology package. It needs parktronic it is so large. The power trunk seems like a toy but there is no way to close the trunk with out leaving hand prints on the beautiful finish. Also an improved keyless acess system like the one in an audi with touch stare and mabey head up disply and sonar cruise control. Vw has done a great job just some fine tuning is needed.

I HAVE OWNED A 750 BMW AND A 500S MERCEDES AND THIS CAR IS BETTER THAN EITHER!THE INTERIOR IS GREAT LOOKING WITH ALL THAT REAL WOOD.RIDE IS TERRIFIC , WONDERFULLY EQUIPED, SPIRITED HANDLING.THE ONLY NEGATIVE IS THE GAS MILEAGE WHEN YOU PUSH IT, WHICH I DO ALL THE TIME- A SMALL PRICE TO PAY FOR ALL THAT FUN! BUY IT, UNLESS YOU ARE A BRAND NAME PERSON ONLY.

Review

We love the car and can easily compare it to our Merc S430 we drove for 3 years. This car is much beter for interior room and comfort. I am very tall and I can comfortably fit behind a tall driver. What is included for the base price is beyond what Mercedes offers.
