2006 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The Phaeton is a very no nonsense luxury vehicle. It has all the appointments of its competitors, but has the practicality of a VW. The uniqueness of the big VW has many on lookers, wondering if this is a Jetta on steriods. The interior appointments are first rate with the exceptions of a couple of cheap buttons. The heated and cooled seats are very comfortable. The exterior shape is very clean, simple, and attractive. The interior cabin shuts out most unwanted noise and the upgraded sterio is unbelievable. The VW network is very proud of this vehicle and is very helpful when servicing the vehicle.
Powered trunk and cooling seats. Hiding air vents isvery cool.
Should have 19 inch wheels and tires. Base price a bit too high to be competitive.
