Buy a used VW Phaeton at a bargain price
Former new price: around 80,000 euros
2008 Phaeton with 240 hp diesel on eBay
A VW Phaeton 3.0 TDI V6 is currently being offered cheaply on eBay. The white sedan was first registered in June 2008, which means that this is a GP1 model with LED daytime running lights, DVD navigation system and the three-liter diesel boosted to 240 hp.
In the past 14 years, the Phaeton has driven an impressive 214,463 kilometers, but it makes a well-kept impression on the pictures. According to the seller, the car is accident-free and second-hand. In addition, it should only show minor signs of wear. Less good: The advertisement does not mention whether the Phaeton still has TÜV – and any defects or problems are not discussed either.
Since the Phaeton is equipped with a great deal of technology, there are hardly any used examples nowadays in which all the technical gimmicks work perfectly. And once the worm gets in, it can get expensive.
The equipment, typical Phaeton, is comprehensive: In addition to a black full leather interior, electrically adjustable seats, GPSair suspension, sunroof and more on board.
Now the luxury limo should cost 8390 euros
All this luxury is available on eBay for 8390 euros. A fair price for a second-hand Phaeton – as long as there is no maintenance backlog. Although early Phaeton models are already available for less than half, these cars can only be used for export or rather as parts carriers. So better plan a little more money when purchasing and buy a well-kept copy.
