2006 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan AWD (4.2L 8cyl 6A)
Previously I have owned a 7 series, a few acuras, lexus, and cadillac escalade. This vehicle has definitely trumped them all! The massage seats for instance, the heated and cooled seats. The hidden vents, the adjustable seats, the programable keys, the power trunk...should I continue? EVERYTHING on this vehicle is powered. Mileage. Well, it could be better of course, but it is a awd vehicle and a very heavy one at that. If you are driving in snow, there is no better vehicle to protect you and your loved ones. I average about 330- 345 per tank and that is combined driving (mostly city though). I love when people do not even know what it is. They think jetta/passat until they get close!
Cooled seats front and rear, rear climate control. AWD.
Many people complain about an auxillary jack, but for a few bucks, I was able to replace the cd changer with a piece that supports usb, ipod, and aux jack. It took seconds to install.
