Nice. I always said quality had nothing to do with sales. If VW takes the sales lead then my point is proven.

The interior looks fantastic, but that is where quality stops. The transmissions are always failing and the engine soon starts to rattle like nuts and bolts in a tin can.

I am not against VW, the car you bought Robert is one of their better achievments. But to compare the Pheoton with a Lexus simply does not work for me.

I don't know, so I cannot doubt your word but if that is the case then just get the Phaeton with the TDI engine thus a different engine and different transmission.

Their transmission woes are well known in the trade. CDI I have no experience with, maybe it does fair better. I see that I spelt Phaeton wrong duh

Robert, you will trade your VW before it is old enough or has high enough miles to be a problem. I will have this LS430 well past that. So neither of us are wrong.
