Top Performers In The Super-luxury Sedan — "he ergonomics for this car are excellent. The car is smartly designed with purpose and a handsome exterior. For 2001, they included many things that are now only being added to others now (2012). Luxurious materials abound...the floor mats are 3 layers deep...the quality is shown throughout. Unfortunately after 100k miles, a few fender benders, attempted theft, the car is showing some age. The reason I purchased the car is that is ideal family car. The "L" edition provides amazing rear seat leg room, ample space for large adults and then some. Moreover, at the time, it was one of the safest cars, 7 airbags, multiple crumple zones, and an innovative tubular front crash zone. Not to mention the frame is alluminm, making it lighter and quieter. The handling is ok, not great, but it is elected for such a large car. Hp is good too. All in all it has served me well."

Luxury At Its' Finest In Any Weather, Anytime! — Almost 10 years old, only 82,000 miles and it is just like new. Gets 30 mi/gal on 75mph trips to canada 580 miles /tank. 300+ HP, AWD goes anywhere, anytime. Maybe needs new struts to get the "performance handling" back, but love it!

This Car Is A Well-rounded Driving Machine--for A Full-size Luxury Sedan. — This car is a dream to drive--considering that it is a full-size luxury sedan. Even at almost eight years old, it still is a great car. I love it. At 4068 lbs. dry weight, this car is lighter and faster than the S430 and equal with the BMW 740iL. The 0-60 was 6.9 secs to 60, and the S430 was 7.6 secs to 60. This car even has the smallest engine in the Bavarian class luxury shootout. The 310hp, 302 ft. lbs. 4.2L V8 develops its peak horsepower at 6200 rpm and peak torque at 3000 rpm, giving it the most horsepower in the comparisons also. Although this car has the shortest wheelbase, though, it has the widest turning radius due to being the only car equipped with all-wheel-drive. The car comes standard with a 5-speed Tiptronic ZF transmission to put the power down to the all-wheel-drive system. The brakes are Zimmermann and Brembo contracted 323mm rotors in the front and 269mm rear rotors stopping this car from 60 in 133ft. Inside is obviously trimmed generously with burl wood, leather, and a touch of stainless and chrome. Leg room is not a problem, front or back, for anyone under 6'5", even in the Standard Wheelbase Model. Heated seats, steering wheel mounted shift buttons, suede headliner, alloy rims, and Electronic Stability Programs are options. On L models there is even the option of trays for the passengers in the rear and a center console with a chiller for drinks which takes out the middle seat.
