|I'm shocked to see so many problems with the flagship model of VW. I'm even more shocked that you guys are so calm about it Doesn't seem like honoring warranty service on the Phaeton is much better than a base model VW.|
There are some problems out there, sure. You get that with any car flagship or not. We all have our horror stories, some owners have no problems at all. I've been through a lot in the past 5 months with my Phaeton.. Better now, then later I say.. Patience = Perfection.
She's at 52,214 miles (maybe a little more now, she's been road tested) this week. I've had a lot, I mean a lot of CPO Warranty work completed at two VW Dealers in the Bay Area. This latest warranty repair is between $11,000 - $15,000 (just in parts). I am glad VWoA does not want to buy the car back, I won't sell it too them!
Latest saga, but it's coming to an end in a few days...
The car is overall great, with such rarity and not many on the road. These cars are a dime a dozen in some states. I really enjoy cruising in my Phaeton, this once in a lifetime car is a wonderful auto!!
