What's the used Volkswagen Phaeton saloon like?

The VW Phaeton's ambition was to attack luxury saloon cars such as the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7 Series, but as a new car it just never had the necessary prestige to succeed.

As a used car, much of that remains true, of course, but that relative lack of desirability does have one very welcome side effect: incredibly cheap prices. Compared with those rivals, the Phaeton is several thousand pounds cheaper.
