2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Handling, comfort, and electronics are superlative. The discount more than off set the absence of brand recognition. This is a car that you can drive coast- to-coast, in any weather. It is so comfortable and offers so much control on highways or country roads, it makes travel pure pleasure. In short, if your ego can handle a brand with less status, this is one very fine automobile.
Power, seat comfort (massaging mechanism, through the seat air conditioning and heating, and more positions than you may need), 4-zone climate control,an audio system that is concert quality, space in front and back as big as any limo, navigation (screen plus On Star) and a solid feeling drive.
There is no additional improvement that is needed. Just status in the name if that is essential.
