2004 Volkswagen Phaeton Premiere Edition W12 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl 5A)


Thank goodness the Phaeton bombed in the market, because it allowed me to get a low-mileage W12 for barely more than $50,000. I've been in almost every hoo-hah car on the planet and this one's the best. It's outlandishly fast, solid, beautiful and incredibly comfortable. The stereo is awesome, and they could fight a nuclear war outside and you'd never hear it. By the way, I will never understand why luxury car buyers complain about fuel economy! If you're too cheap to buy a lot of gas, then for goodness sake don't get a 12-cylinder car.

Best Features

Selectable suspension and transmission, fast W-12 engine, fantastic stereo, plush interior, and quiet ride.

Worst Features

There are enough gadgets in this car to confuse Bill Gates.
