I owned all these cars at one time or another, and there is no comparison. Mercedes Benz is the ultimate car on the road. Safe, reliable, comfortable and just a joy to drive. Highly recommend it to all..

Pros

Excellent Engineering

Cons

Too expensive to maintain, was in the dealership for repairs more than 1/3 of the time. Difficult to get some parts, had to wait for weeks to get the part in from Germany...

Will Never Buy S 600 Class Car Again Ever.... — The engineering for the car is great, with tons of features. The most expensive part was to get the suspensions repaired, could not get the parts for 6 weeks. After fixing the suspension they broke again in 6 months. Decided to get rid of the car.

Repairs Will Exceed Value — My friend and I both had this car, at the same time; interestingly enough we both had the same problems. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice riding car, and I can't complain much about it. The only real complaint I had was the cost of the parts. Lets say you buy one of these used for 10k; when the suspension goes up it will cost you close to 4k to repair. That is the issue with this car, the money you spend for a few repairs will eventually exceed its value. Then you become a sitting duck just waiting for the next expensive thing to go up, and you will never get your money back when you unload it.

Over All It Is A Great Car! — I have had this car for a long time now and it has been a very reliable car. It is extremely comfortable and real fun to drive. I only use it when we go out as a family since I have an Accord for work.

Pros

This is the Ultimate luxury car for anyone. I have really tricked my Benz out so when you see the finished pics you will agree with me.

Cons

The only con i have is how tough it was to add audio and video to this car due to the fiber optics but once you get by that its a joy to own.

League Mvp! — Mercedes Benz is known for making the best luxury cars and the S Class speaks to how serious that Mercedes Benz is when it comes to making a bold statement in the car game. My favorite luxury car of all time is the S Class Benz. It's long, lean, sleek, fast, and elegant. What more could you want for in a car.

styling, performace, V12, rides lik a tank

Cons

weight, cost of ownership, gas mileage

Mercedes S600 — this car is unbelievable, it rides like no other and is as solid as tank, the V12 pulls great for a 5700lb car. the styling is more than average but could use some better wheels. it handles and surprisingly well even at 100+mph. the cost of ownership is quite high, only due to the fact that any engine components need to be replace in twelves, not in sixes or eights. the gas mileage runs about 13 to 15mpg on premium unleaded.

Overall, I Love This Car And Next The S600 — The performance is very good,the acceleration is very quick and the breaking system is very good when speeding and very safe when driving it.When proper care is taking , the car can be trouble free for very long time and the gas mileage is up to you how the car is been driven and been taking care. With the right dealer you can get better repair cost for your car Finally appearance,build,performance is what made this car to be the best and fun to drive
