2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan w/4 Seats (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


This car, with the outstanding deals being offered, represents great value. The quality of the interior materials is above average for the class. Yes, it's heavy, but it rolls down the road in fine style and the structure feels bank vault strong. I've been averaging 17-18 mpg in a mix of city and highway driving, not bad for a large car. Overall I'm very impressed so far, and look forward to driving this car every chance I get. Those who don't consider this car because it's has the VW emblem are making an error, there is nothing like a Phaeton for the price. Consider this; the Bentley Continental is built on the same platform and shares most of the Phaeton's running gear!
