2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
The only small negative about the Volkswagen Phaeton V8 is the poor fuel mileage. For a 5,200 lb car, I espected this though. Otherwise, I think it is just about perfect. It has excellent fit and finish. It has the people comforts you expect in only the best cars which cost much more. its engine is very powerful and the car is very smooth and quite at high speeds.
Power, handing, passive air system, and the 270 watt 12 speaker sound system are just world class. The leg and head room in the rear seat would qualify it for limo service. A very solid feel to the car.
The navigation system harder to use than Honda's and not as informative. Also, it needs to offer satellite radio.
