2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Significantly depreciated value / price of this '04 car made it a great value. Solid feel with incredible performance in a "better than limo" luxury experience. So many bells and whistles that it takes days to train self on all functions. Three complaints: navigation system is antiquated, complex and only provides minimal information and tire pressure sensors are very sensitive and won't read correctly in very cold conditions and finally, cannot turn off seat-belt tone which is bothersome if you just want to sit and wait for someone without being buckled up.
Styling is great, understated and elegant. Only educated drivers know what you're driving.
Improve navigation, add DVD capability, and improve economy / gas mileage.
