Luxurious and Unique by Bill from Chicago on 03/21/2005. Trim: 2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The interior is extremely comfortable and has the quality of a room in a five star hotel. The seats can be adjusted to virtually any position you desire and the massage is a great tension reliever on long drives. The engine is extremely powerful and is solid when passing. There is enough horsepower to accelerate when you need (or want) to. The stereo system is the best I have heard in any car. period. You will also be the only one driving this vehicle which makes you stand out from the non-descript crowd of BMW's Mercedes, Jags, etc.
Cons: The navigation system is worthless. VW really needs to update the software. From a dead start, the vehicle is not sluggish, but not quick, beacuse of its weight of over 5,000 pounds. You won't be winning any drag races but you will be able to win when you are at speed and need to accelerate.
Overall review: Excellent Vehicle for the money. Less costly than the high-end, more features and power (and AWD) than any car in its price range.
