2005 Volkswagen Phaeton W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)
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.
Wood grain panels that open up to
expose air vents when needed. Very
quiet car with super soft and
comfortable ride especially on
interstates. STEREO is this car's
best feature as the sound quality is
awesome. The W12 is very strong in
the power dept.
So much superior engineering went into
Needs a DVD navigation system and a
phone. The car comes phone ready ,
but VW has no phone for it. Too many
warning signals such as "fasten seat
belt" chimes and "lights on" signals.
I wish these could be turned off by
the owner. Should have come with
