2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan w/4 Seats (4.2L 8cyl 6A)

Review

This is a great car. I have owned BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, Lexus etc. Undoubtedly, this is the most luxurious, elegant, unpretentious (which suits me), best riding, quiet car of all. I wanted an all wheel drive luxury car and VW has come through in spades. I am looking to a Bentley but when comparing it to the Phaeton find it difficult to justify the higher price and can't imagine the build quality could be that much superior.

Best Features

The solid ride and comfort of this car excels. The radio is superb. I enjoy the flexibility of the suspension settings to suit the road conditions. Excellent heating/ventilation controls. The solidity and feel of this car is all I could ask for. Mileage is better than I expected.

Worst Features

The power window controls are a bit of a stretch. A DVD Navigation system would be more convenient than the multiple CD based unit.
