      Arthur:

      I saw the article also. It validates the basic reasons I own a Phaeton. Oodles of quality and engineering excellence at extremely attractive pricing. Add to this the fact that the...

      Frank, my thoughts exactly.

      John, i know we all love our Phaetons but taking a hit like that for the P is too much. ;) One of the reasons many of us continue to drive our Phaetons and put up...

      As you imply, I would have preferred a new water pump. However, if it is truly a remanufactured unit from VW, I wouldn't lose any sleep worrying about its quality. I would suspect VW would have...
