Phaeton vanishes from US market
By Christopher De Jonge on
2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I enjoy my Phaeton. It has beautiful interior trim. The exterior is sleek and muscular. The handling is sub-optimal, however I am used to more sport drive handling. It is a gas-guzzler. Perhaps the most disconcerting thing is that 2006 will be the last year for new model Phaetons. Already the resale value has tanked. Further, I question whether parts might be hard to obtain.
