Groundbreaking car from VW


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


This car has so many excellent
features, I don't know where to begin!
The car is a pleasure to drive, day or
night. I understand they only sold 900
nationally, so it is very exclusive,
almost rare. I am getting 23.3 mpg on
the highway, which is not much worse
than my Chrysler 300M Special I traded
in. Dealer has been good, but not up to
Lexus standards.

Best Features

Seats, soft leather, dash vents, night time interior lighting, style inside and out, exclusivity, price/value relationship, extreme quietness, build quality, interior size, engine growl when revved

Worst Features

Make the infotainment system shut COMPLETELY OFF with one button. You must now go through several steps to turn the a/c and fan off, and when the car is restarted, it goes back to "auto"operation... a pain. I wish it had ambient footwell lighting, like the brochure promised.
