    Hi all, I'm looking to change my car and i had my eyes set for quite a while on 2011+ used Phaetons. I'm wondering what's your opinion on reliability of said year, model, engine, most common faults and what to lookout for when driving / testing ? And is that a car that could easily live up to...

    I’m at a loss for what to do here. I have a 2005 V8 Phaeton. My wife tried turning it on to move it the other day, problem was, the thing wouldn’t turn on, nor would it relinquish the key. So, the key is stuck in the ignition. Won’t turn on, no lights come on so there’s no power. I’ve tried...

    Hi. I changed my broken aux/parking heater to a refurbished one that had the same part number. I the new one works as a auxiliary heater just fine, but it does not start when I try to start it from to center screen. On VCDS it said that the coolant shut off valve N279 is not fitted and that...

    Mine is a silver/black 2004 V8, bought in late 2020. It started & ran reliably, but in limp mode (3rd gear, PRNDS displayed all characters at once.) Only other problems were details.

    Don’t take your car to Bonneville, is pretty much the lesson of this video. Do go to Bonneville, just don’t do it in the car you’re hoping to drive back to town. Especially not if that car is an out of date luxury car with some electrical gremlins. There’s really no real-world applicability to...

    The fact that the Phaeton was an expensive folly that showed the best and worst of Volkswagen at the time is, by now, not new information. But in a recent interview with Top Gear , VW’s head of design gave the world an insight into just how best-and-worst it was. Bischoff was, at the time...

    You don't have to be an accountant to see that buying a Phaeton would be a colossally stupid decision. It’s a big, expensive to fix, unreliable, Passat clone with luxuries that are more than a decade out of date. But I defy you to watch this video and look at the prices for one, and not feel the...

    Starting a business or getting a new technology up and running is not easy; you need money, space, access to resources, and a lot of coffee (I'm guessing). At CeBIT 2017 Volkswagen announced they're going to help entrepreneurs with most of these needs. Space within the Transparent Factory in...

    If you happen to be in Dresden, take a look at Volkswagen’s factory and you’ll see some action happening inside. The reason is twofold. First: the plant is transparent, so you can see everything that happens inside (along with their industry, Germans are known for the subtlety of their...

Kirk in the original Star Trek series, was selling his 2004 VW Phaeton at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction and we can now report that the hammer dropped at $29,700.
