Depends on how many miles you drive plus of course time intervals if you do very low milage. Figure around $1500 every 10k miles of you have the factory do the servicing to as low as $1000 of you just do fluid and various filter changes yourself or at an independant shop. Of course at 30k or so miles there are 'major' services so around $2500 plus perhaps tires and brakes.

Generally, no.

Of course there is always 'a way' if you drive radically, be very hard on the brakes and tires, track the car a lot... then costs can easily go up of course as would be like any other highly used to the edge car. On the other hand if you plan on the car being a daily driver for normal use it would be hard for me to see even $2000/yr. FYI: The B here is a daily driver in the sun, rain and snow.

IMHO if you can, get an 06 as it has better bluetooth and other small improvements. A 30k mile 06 should go for around $90k.

The maintenance costs seem pretty reasonable. How has reliability been on the GTs?

Excellent. Perhaps some small niggles but so far nothing serious, as the core of the car is the VW Phaeton really.

those brakes are $3-4k to replace and they require computer to complete the brake job. this makes it a dealer service only item. read $$$

Not so bad - I paid $1000 approx for pads and rotors online - anyone with a VAG cable can unlock the rear parking brake to install them - took my mechanic an hour for the whole thing give or take


Main issues with CGT's are the rear brake light which almost always goes bad - replacment cost is approx $2-3k all said and done -

Main differences between the 04-05 to the 06 was:

Nicer Bentley Key

Doors that suck in

Push to start

Those are the main things I can remember from my 05 to my current one

Huh? They replaced mine under warranty and the parts cost says under $300 and it took one hour to do the job. Something is amiss somewhere, i can scan the repair sheet if you want.

I have had mine for about 6 months, and the only thing I have done is replace a seal on the power steering pump. Cost me about $125 at an independent. Other than that, I have had no issues. Truthfully, the only thing that I would even remotely complain about is the gas mileage. It seems that this car drinks gas excessively around town. Interstate mileage is so-so, but in town is just as bad as my H2.
