2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


I happened to stumble upon this vehicle by chance and am very happy for the outcome. I am very impressed by the engine build, interior comfort and subdued exterior design - not into the 'prestige vehicle' badges. This car isn't prestige at all, and that's a good thing. Fuel economy could improve but compared to some 4cyl turbos out there it isn't much of a difference. In fact some V6s out there have the same fuel economy as the V8 Phaeton. Personally I would NOT recommend the W12 Phaeton with 12cyl.

Best Features

My favourite features would be the knobs and buttons in the interior. I love having a "complicated" dash even though there isn't much complication what-so-ever. If you're in a yougner generation you'll understand without the manual. The trunk is extremely good quality just like the whole car itself.

Worst Features

Can't think of any.
