Built the way Mercedes used to build

Vehicle2004 Volkswagen Phaeton Premiere Edition W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)
Review15 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 function.
