2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
This is my first super luxury car. Prior to the Phaeton, I owned a Lincoln LS. The LS is an excellent car, but is not in the same class as the Phaeton. I was able to purchase a 2004 with 51900 miles for $24500 with an all inclusive VW warranty. I consider myself a well informed consumer that does his research. I have to say this car is the BEST car that I have driven and that I made an excellent purchase. Rides like a dream. On a back road, I got it up to 120 mph, but took it down because I got scared.. Flawless ride even at 120 mph...
I am a network engineer, so I like all of the gadgets.
I would have liked to have a sirius radio and keyless entry. The nav system could be better. Since premium gas is currently $3.75/gallon, the mpg suck...
