This was a excellent car good buy today if you can find one .

A used Phaeton under $10,000 would be a great vehicle for Uber drivers to use.

Volkswagen should have sold this car under an Audi badge

Weirdest feature would easily be the book of mormon

I remember when I won this car in midnight club 3 dub edition tournament, and was like meh at least I got some money too.

You missed a few things:\nThe boot latch retracts as the boot opens, so you have zero chance of bashing your head on it\nThe air conditioning comes out of subtle places where you can't feel the air on your skin so it doesn't make you uncomfortable\nThe toll tag doesn't work because the front windscreen has infrared and UV reflecting elements, to keep the interior cooler in the sun\nThe suspension automatically lowers itself at speed to improve fuel consumption and wind noise\n\nAlso this car doesn't have the 4-seat extended wood console, adaptive cruise control or the solar sunroof. All from a 2003 car.
Doug DeMuro
Yes, I am saying \

The cool factor is 10. Not the one trying so hard to be cool driving a yellow hummer is actually the cool one.. no. The sleek classy looking pal is it.

Nobody knows is a Phaeton ? People mistaken it with a passat ? Really ?. . . . .only the ignorants will do that. When you are a car enthusiast , you know it.
Eric Singley
Has heated, cooled, massaging rear seats, along with other absurd features. Gives it a 6/10. Facepalm.

Now this is German engineering totally different and totally unique what upsets me is people don't understand and judge it in other way without even owning a German made car.

Why am I not surprised a mormon would own this?

Doug, If it wasn't for your reviews, I would have never known that Jaguar xjls were under 20k. 2 months ago, I finally bought one. Never even knew Phaetons were a thing, im going to look at an awd model this weekend for 9500. Black on Black, and under 100k miles. You the man Doug!! Got 2 crazy luxury cars for under 30k!! My last ford fusion was over 30k!! Now im rolling in 2 luxury sedans with options people have never even heard of. Thanks again Doug!! Gonna need a nice used luxury truck soon. Maybe you should Review the \
Jacob O'Leary
book of mormon in the glove box? yikes!
James Latimer
Love your vids Doug and the w12 vw
Juan Torres
That’s considered a sleeper car. I would get it
July John Hibionada
So much electric features..good luck when it breaks down..
JustSomeDude
That's the best thing about the phaeton, it's the discreet rich mans luxury car. It's not super flexin, only those that KNOW it, truly appreciate it for what it really is. This review did leave out some key things that I thought were really interesting when Top Gear UK covered this, BUT Doug talked about a lot of things that Top Gear didn't, so even. The thing that always annoys me, Doug shouldn't always rate cars on how \

German cars are allways amaizing

Lmao the Book of Mormon in the glove box.

I remember my head turning in typical car geek glee when I saw one years ago and then realizing I was probably the only dude that knew what that car was.
Levente Rádl
Came to check the comments for german people explaining this guy how to pronounce Volkswagen, but damn I'm disappointed
Literally Hitler
I wonder how it feels to drive a sedan that big. Only been in small hatchbacks by the way

Very luxurious

7:00 The Book of Mormon is unique to the W12 models.  It wasn't even an option for the V8s.

Who drives this bad mama jama, Joseph Smith?

Nice Passat

Can we crowd fund and buy Doug some pants, he only appears to have one pair of shorts.

book of mormon, NRA plate frame, is this car owned by mitt romney?
PPPluckful
I owned a 2004 W-12 for 10 years. I sold it when I moved to the countryside. The car really needs to be driven regularly, or it will deteriorate, and I knew that my pickup truck would be the daily driver, so I got rid of it to someone who was thrilled to get it.\n\nI am surprised that Doug never mentioned the adjustable suspension when he talked about handling. When in Sport mode, the car's handling was very precise. I used to love whipping around the curves on California's Hwy. 1. It also has an adjustable suspension height, just like the Rolls Phantom. So I really have to disagree with his negative comment about handling. I've driven a fair amount of large cars including luxury ones, and I think the Phaeton in Sport mode was at the top of the list. Same for acceleration when in Sport-Drive mode, although I can believe that the Flying Spur would be faster because of the turbo.\n\nI also depart from him on styling. True, it's an exercise in stealth wealth, but it has classic lines that were \

I had a phaeton w12. Easily one of the finest cars i ever owned, biggest drawback was people mistook it for the passat. You forgot he sunroof solar panels, that would keep the battery charged so you could keep the airconditioning on while the car was parked, it would never get hotter than what you wanted, not even after a full summer day in the sun. Also people wanting to race a “passat” (mine didnt have any of the w12 labels) and completely smoking their asses on a 1/4 mile.

Doug the kind of guy to wear a condom when he sleeps with his pregnant wife.
Rafat Shareef
And you can get this for 8,700+?

Great features in a ugly car

I saw one of these before knowing what it was and i thought like, that's one big passat :D

This is double VR6! Not a double V6 ;-)

The way Doug's face goes from delighted to serious at 22:22 in quite incredible.

Doug the type of guy to call the tripod his cameraman

Practicality 5/10. Are you kidding me? A completely unusable Lamborghini Countach gets a 2/10, A 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Lusso gets a 3/10 and you said this car should get a 4/10 but was only saved by the back seats. Really now.
Stan Curry
Not gonna lie this things actually pretty sweet

Doug the type of guy to go chick hunting at a bar and inspecting every girl’s “quirks and features” and he gives her a dougscore afterwards

If that car is 8/10 in comfort, my pickup truck must be about -57...
Street Lethal Garage
The toyota Celsior/Lexus LS430 had every single one of those rear options from the 90's all the way through today.\n\nI really wish you'd do a review on the 04-06 Lexus LS430 Ultra Luxury package.

This car will increase in value in the near future, so they said.!?

Say it with me: FAY - ten
Will Thompson
You can get one for less than 10 Grand which is great but still wouldn't want to own one, the servicing costs would make me feel very uncomfortable! Imagine going to the VW dealership to be told the bill, I would do a runner leaving the car as payment for services rendered!!
Yora
The air vents look like they are more expensive than my entire car.
Your Name Here
Looks like a stretched out Passat lol
Your channel sucks
Doug the type of guy who can’t determine if he’s 6’3” or 6’4”

This car has a certain Eastern European crime boss feel to it.
alphatrion100
Its a giant passat

At the beginning of the video, I said it's blaspheming to compare a VW to the all-mighty S-class, but man, this car displays an incredible attention to detail. It truly compares to the S-class.
bobspineable
Seems like the perfect car fo me, a luxury car that doesn’t draw attention.
buru kenge
Comes with the book of Mormon
cytherians
So sad how the exterior is so mundane and pedestrian compared to the interior. It's like they ran out of creative time after spending so much on the inside. I wonder if there's any feasible way to tune the V8 (lighter) and upgrade the suspension.
dzonikg
Its better then S class or BMW 7 or any luxury car off that time ..people just did not buy because off the badge

Officer: “license and registration please.”\nDriver: “I’m sorry officer, all I carry with me is the Book of Mormon.”

I'll give you $1.20 for it.

The w12 phaeton may not have been succesful, but vw made their money back when they turned it into the bentley continental gt

I remember owning this car...\n\n\n\n\nIn Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition.

One of the most underrated luxury sedans ever made and shurely one of the most underrated VW's ...Great quality car !

Doug is the type of guy to make a 30min review of a volkswagen that is better equipped than an s-class and then give it 6/10 on features

I want it, give it to me.

Book of Mormon, NRA license plate, Phaeton. Who the hell owns this thing?

there should be a law against grown men wearing shorts. I mean what's next, a sailor cap?

They should have made the outside look different. Just looks like a really nice Passat. This one is in MINT Condition like damn. Thing is 14yrs old and looks mint
