Phaeton - Spec for 2006 ?

22 posts in this topic

Hi,

Does anybody have any idea if the spec for the Phaeton will be changing in 06 ? I had read somewhere that one change would be the inclusion of the 12/12 sound system as standard in the V10 TDI.....

It may be likely, since theyre axing the beloved Phaeton this year.

Really?? Not too sure about that. I know they're going to stop selling it in the USA but I thought they were continuing in Europe.

Well, once something dies in one country its a matter of time.

It hasnt got much life left, the only people who are buying them (other than me) are VW dealer bosses and VW bosses in general.....

America isnt as brand aware as us and they dont want it...

Matter of time dont you think?

That is dire news if true, we (as a driving nation) can not seem to get over a badge and see the real quality beneath... i just hope it stays around a while longer.

I reckon 2007 will see the announcement of the Phaeton's cease.

I would buy another today.

MCCombie 5, Did you get a good price when you bought it/, I looked at the V10 TDI, but it lost so much money I ran for my life, I chose the A8TDI instead. What mileage and economy are you getting? best regards AJ SMOKE6.GIF

I got a good deal, not only for paying in full cash, but for ordering such a highly specced car, its likely that their is not another like it.

I get 29-32mpg, but I drive with a heavy foot! Runs most of the time on BP Ultimate Diesel, and it isnt too pricey to keep on the roads, the build sheet said £72,534, but they knocked a massive chunk off that!

I looked at the A8, but the Phaeton blends better with my lifestyle. Its far more anonymous, as alot of people believe it to just be a Passat, but the interior is in another class. Best interior on any car I have ever driven, and thats ALOT of cars. Then again, I would say that, I bought one!

Note: mine is the 4-Seat model.

Sounds nice, I managed 42MPG going to gatwick just before christmas ( nursing), 34MPG on the way back though, did give it a workout. best regards AJ 169144-ok.gif

He probably learned how to pleasure himself shortly after being booted off TSN and consequently found a better use for his time.

Certainly brought that memory back to the surface alright 169144-ok.gif

I saw one when visiting China and did not think it looked like a Passat at all, I thought it was a very nice looking motor indeed.
