2004 Volkswagen Phaeton V8 4dr Sedan (4.2L 8cyl 6A)


When I first saw the car I had the same reaction as most, why on earth would VW want to get in to the Luxury market. However, after getting in to the car and viewing the Top Gear review on it I was completely sold. The car is everything for people who like to wear their brand names on the inside rather than all over their clothing.

Best Features

The Adjustable Ride Height is absolutely amazing, has come in handy in the Bad Canadian Winters. The 4.2L provides enough power to get out of most jams and it's super smooth at any speed.

Worst Features

Though there are many updates coming in the 2010 Phaeton I would say having reverse sensors as a standard option would make backing up the car a whole lot easier. The trunk and fuel release are a bit odd to reach but really a preference than a major problem.
