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


Picked up the car beginning of November and have had it for about two weeks. I had heard a lot about this car and once I got behind the wheel and drove it I was sold. The build quality is far greater and move "high priced" vehicals. The drivabilty of this luxury vehicle is not like those of it's competitors, though it's designed for luxury it does not over do the soft comfy feel, you still feel connected to the road and feel like driving more than being driven. The acceleration is moderate to good for a car which is just over 6000lbs, the exhaust soundtrack is like none other about the only thing you could hear while you drive this misunderstood hidden gem of a vehicle.

Best Features

Real wood panels, speedo which reads 320km/h, seats which rival those on a first class cabin. Rear seat large enough to make a 6.6ft person feel lost.

Worst Features

More power out of the tried and tested 4.2L V8. Larger rear view mirror would be a great bonus.
