2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The Phaeton is a fantastic vehicle - really, it's the same as the new Bentley Continental Flying Spur. It is fun to drive and much nicer than the S-Class and 7-Series that I have driven in the past. Its fuel economy is not great, but it is a very heavy vehicle - approx. 5,300 lbs. In light of the weight and performance, its fuel economy could be much worse.
I love how it is so wonderful to drive. It has the best audio system on the market.
