Its really sad this car hasnt suceeded like its competition, its such an elegant car and i think equally as luxurious. People are so brand conscious, there is nothing wrong with the Phaeton its just the badge, and even saying that sounds bad cause there's nothing wrong with the VW badge either. Its the same with the Touareg, great car and so overlooked!

And one can ask himself if that's good or bad since the car never secured a firm spot in its segment vs A8/7/S and is still being sold very rarely.
