  • phaeton to the rescue - 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton
    By -

    after 20 years of declining Benz quality and unable to stomach the cosmetics counter styling of thier interiors it is a godsend that VW has rescued car buyers from having to drive the class favorite of orthodontists and garmentos. After 8 months and 25000 miles I'm ready to order the wagon and coupe, if VW will just build them.

  • Mercedes vs. Phaeton - 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton
    By -

    My husband and I have owned Mercedes in the past. We test drove the Phaeton a month after leasing our Toureag. We found it to be far superior to the Mercedes in handling, comfort, room, GPS system easier to use and comparable in price. We were more comfortable with the sales personel at VW and service was much more accommodating. Love it, hope to never have to go back to a Mercedes

  • Groundbreaking car from VW - 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton
    By -

    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.

    I HAVE OWNED A 750 BMW AND A 500S MERCEDES AND THIS CAR IS BETTER THAN EITHER!THE INTERIOR IS GREAT LOOKING WITH ALL THAT REAL WOOD.RIDE IS TERRIFIC , WONDERFULLY EQUIPED, SPIRITED HANDLING.THE ONLY NEGATIVE IS THE GAS MILEAGE WHEN YOU PUSH IT, WHICH I DO ALL THE TIME- A SMALL PRICE TO PAY FOR ALL THAT FUN! BUY IT, UNLESS YOU ARE A BRAND NAME PERSON ONLY.

  • Better than BMW and Mercedes - 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton
    By -

    I have had many luxury cars, but my Volkswagen Phaeton W12 is the best all around vehicle. it rides like it is on railsl, handles amazingly well, is built like a tank and exudes luxurry, inside and out. It is the perfect understatement for people of taste and class.

    This is the best handling car we've ever owned. Since our son is 6'4" the legroom is outstanding. this car's comfort and ride are far beyond our expectations. I cannot say enough about the options that are available on this model. I have not found any car that has close to the number of options that are available on the Phaeton. Sorry to say that the vehicle will no longer be available in the states, maybe if they would have sold it under the Phaeton name rather than Volkswagen. People just don't realize it's the same car as the the Audi - ONLY BETTER!

    Ride on clouds when you select the hydraulic suspension in "comfort" - Ride like a TT when in "sport". Amazing, "as you like it" ride for a car of this size and weight. Moves like an arrow, I love the quietness and the stereo. Luxurious but with taste. It makes you feel great to be in it. They thought of everything... Drivers slow down and don't pass you on the freeway so that they can look at the car.

    Best car on the road- incredible value for money compared to the boring BMW and Mercedes

  • Best Kept Secret in the Used Car Market - 2004 Volkswagen Phaeton
    By -

    I purchased a used, certified model with 60,000 miles from a VW dealer. The superb materials and build quality make it seem hardly used. The buttons, carpets, leather surfaces, chrome, liners, etc all look new. The paint deserves special mention. My silver reflex paint scheme is beautiful. The car is comfortable, with ample room inside, especially the back seat area. The air suspension is sublime. This is the car to have on long trips. This car is truly exclusive, as less than 3,500 Phaetons were imported into the US. Thankfully the Phaeton remains in production, and obtaining parts is not a problem. Servicing by VW is a must. Recommend purchasing an extended warranty.
