2005 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
I owned every luxury German car brand there is, plus some great Asian cars. This is the best bar none. The importer did a poor job of promoting the car and nobody know how good it is. VW has treaded the Phaeton a bit better in Europe, but their problems in the USA have caused it to be cancelled. They really hosed the owners, but this car is hard to belive. Its build quality is utterly fanstastic. It drives great, quiet and smooth with great handling, ride and acoustics. What a sound system.
I love the build quality, materials quality, interior room, conseravite styling, engine and transmission smoothness.
Change the navigation system to make it DVD based, upgrade the CD changer to play MP3 files and provide Aux inputs for iPod, etc. That's, it everything else is perfect.
