2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I looked at Mercedes (S-Class), BMW (7
Series), Audi (A8), Range Rover and
Lexus (LS400 series). As a fluke I
was asked to look at the VW Phaeton.
I thought, VW-no thanks. (Nothing
wrong with VWs but not what I thought
Sat in it and was amazed at the
incredible technology and comforts
built in. Better intuitive Info
Center (Navigation, Climate, Systems,
Stereo, etc.) than any other lux car
model. The seats are the most
comfortable I've ever sat in-better
than Volvo. The room is incredible.
The car is handbuilt in Germany. The
fit and finish blow away everything
else. The ride is outstanding.
Quiet? Dual paned glass through out.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST CAR!!!
Seats, climate system, smooth/quiet
Satellite radio and DVD based
navigation system (rather than CD
based). I hear they are coming out
with a "hard drive" system that will
make DVD obsolete.
