15 yrs. ago Mercedes had the best built
cars. Now VW creates "build quality"
equal to Lexus, better than BMW, and
way ahead of Mercedes. The ride,
handling, fit and finish are
phenomenal. Gas mileage is an
acceptable 16 MPG in mixed driving.
The W12 engine is smooth/responsive and
the car so well insulated that it
glides super quietly along the highway
at 70 MPH with engine RPM @2200. I
wanted understated elegance and
excellent fit/finish and got what I
paid for. I strongly recommend this car
if you don't worry about "hood emblems"
and just want fine quality, design, and
Accelerates like a rocket ship!
Phaeton is as close to perfect as you
can get in this price range.
