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


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.

Best Features

Interior design. The "James Bond" vents are great! Seats, cup holders, sound system, I could go on and on.

Worst Features

DVD based Navigation instead of CD. Add XM radio and the Blue Tooth system for cellular. Finally a touch screen system for GPS controls.
