Great car for the right person

by JB from Chicago, IL | March 20, 2013

This car is big, luxurious, well designed and built. It has a quiet smooth ride and is equiped with most everything I want. It is expensive to operate. I would not buy one if I was putting lots of miles on a car or wanted to spend as little as possible on a car. I live in Chicago and it is perfect for bumpy city roads and blocking out noise. It is a beautiful, comfortable cocoon to travel through town.

Stealth Bentley for 1/5 the cost.

by Ohio 2005 Phaeton from Boardman, Ohio | April 11, 2012

I've had our 2005 Phaeton for 6 months with zero problems. Amazing engineering. Interior matched by none, even Rolls and Bentley. The navigation might need an upgrade but it's a minor complaint for an extremely loaded vehicle. Massage and heat/ac in every seat with true 4 zone climate. It measures the humidity in all 4 zones and the chestnut covers on front vents open and close silently as required. Bentley frame, Audi A8 engine and over the top luxury that makes people take a second look. Especially the car folks who "know their vehicles" are fooled by the Phaeton.

Not for the average crowd

by Car Nut from Santa Barbara, CA | October 25, 2011

The Phaeton is the best value for the money in the used luxury car market today. Few, if any, cars can give you that exclusivity and performance. The W12 is an amazing motor with a turbine-like smoothness that cannot be matched by anything with 8 cylinders. Drive one and you will purchase it on the spot. I've owned mine for four years w/o any major problems. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for that "special" car and likes to fly under the radar.

Buy the Phaeton

by Phaeton Driver from Irvine, CA | January 16, 2011

The W12 Phaeton is a great car; impossible to upgrade and amazing to drive. Few, if any cars sold for under $100,000 today can come near this car in comfort or performance. If you have the choice between a Mercedes, BMW, or Phaeton.............purchase the Phaeton. You won't be disappointed. The W12 has an aura or mystique that is undeniable. You're in a special car, and everyone knows it; especially the BMW and Mercedes owners!!!!!
