2004 Volkswagen Phaeton W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)

Review

Arguably the best car made. Unfortunately the brand is too inhibitive for its success. People, who do their research and are not stuck on brand image, would have a very difficult time to buy anything else. Workmanship, and attention to detail is better than Lexus, or S- Class. The exterior is the only weak element, as it is rather plain. But in my case I am glad to go anywhere "in cognito". Otherwise, the road manners are second to none. The car is glued to the road, the ride is comfortable and there is always plenty of smooth power. The interior is quite as can be, and the wood and dash with the "indirect" climate system is fantastic. You can literally hear the pin drop at 80 mph.

Favorite Features

Super smooth, quite and powerful W12 engine, comfortable seats with heat & cool, the interior layout is nice, with plenty of wood. I really like the indirect climate system as well as the All wheel Drive system which is exceptional, etc...

Suggested Improvements

The electric trunk lid is a nice gizmo, but has its drawbacks when loading the trunk full, it won't close. Operation seems fragile, and you can't really use it manually. Make XM/Sirius Standard, offer a standard remote starter, include Bluetooth.
