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
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.
Interior design. The "James Bond" vents
are great! Seats, cup holders, sound
system, I could go on and on.
DVD based Navigation instead of CD. Add
XM radio and the Blue Tooth system for
cellular. Finally a touch screen system
for GPS controls.
