After 3900 miles, with summer and
winter tires, car is broken in and mpg
is right up there as advertised.
Excellent acceleration in all 6 gears
(at least below 100 mph - I haven't had
it up into triple digit land). Seats
are outstanding providing you don't
need to lose weight, they are firmly
bolstered. Sport mode 4C is excellent,
comfort good for long hails on the
interstates or if you have back seat
passengers. Braking, overall handling
dry, wet, crosswinds, all excellent.
Suspension, brakes, good power in all
gears, flat torque curve, smooth
shifting, optional sound system also
Cup holder gets in way of shifting if
tall bottles put in it. Right now
there are no aftermarket wheels, car
definitely needs winter/summer tires
and changing is easier with two sets of
wheels, but OEM Phaetons are stylish
and priced reasonably.
