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


I have owned Audi's for 15 years,
including the A8. Naturally, when I
had a chance to test drive the Phaeton,
it was love at first sight. The
vehicle was an Audi A8 with more extras
and wow, what a great lease deal. I
have test driven Mercedes 500 series,
BMW 745i, and Lexus 430. Sorry, but
the competition will have to come back
with VW designs to beat this gem. It
truly is a hand-crafted vehicle, with
room in the back seat for a King.

Best Features

I like the massage feature, the outstanding stereo, the handling and power. The vehicle controls at first seem a little complex, but after driving this vehicle for a month I found myself addicted to the fit, feel and controls.

Worst Features

Provide VW accessories, such as floor mats (not available 12/03).
