Overall:

This VW Phaeton is interesting. I bought 12. Still have 5. The chassis was used in other VW brands like Audi & Bentley. Today the car needs more and more attention. Bad plastic,, like the extremely brittle from bumper. Interior falls apart. Regulators fail. Belts wear. Etc. Many parts can break. It takes longer and longer to get parts. Don’t over pay for the Phaeton. Max $10k for the V8. $15k for the W12. You need to reserve $2-4k in repairs per year. Good luck

Nothing about this car is junky. This is a serious car for serious people. It deserves to be well cared for. Parts are expensive because they are high quality and low volume. Buying one that has been neglected will be expensive to recondition back to fully functional status. But it will reward you with a car that is a dream to drive. They did not come with Bluetooth and that should be added.

Great car with awesome features. Some models are above the car blue book value. Few cars with low milage, most above 100 k miles, that means maintance cost are needed soon. pjr Houston, TX

Hard To Find, But Rewarding When You Do. — Hard to properly describe this car. Many think it is an Audi A8, but it is much more than that. Has some incredible features like auto door close, vanity screens and an excellent Navigation system. I would get one if I were you.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to Drive

Cons: None

This is really a Bentley (which VW owns, also Audi). It is the same as a Bentley Sport or an Audi A8. Only varies by trim. The paint job, alone is incredible. Mine is Premium Black, which looks 2 ft. ... Read More
