Dream Car — No problems with this car, I love it. I used to own the 2006, but had to upgrade once the mileage got a little high. There is nothing that I dislike about this car. I will be upgrading again once I hit 80k miles.

Pros

Great ride and style.  Ample Power and tremendous braking abilty with no road noise. Decent Fuel Economy on Highway.  Ambient lighting is a nice feature.  

Cons

Radio weaker than in my Lexus. No heated steering wheel in 108K car.

The Best Combination Of Luxury And Sport Available In The Sedan Segment. — Powerful and classy car. Turned heads with interior and exterior class. No other car compares in build quality and yet still fun to drive in any weather condition. AMG wheels add a sport edge to an already stylish stately sedan. Can't go wrong selecting an S class!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

My Opinion About The S-class... — I drove it long time ago, when my license was fresh... And my review from then is: Nice acceleration and top speed, but it still handles like a big, heavy car. Quality - Seriously? It is a Mercedes-Benz... Cost of ownership - Definitely car for the rich. It is basically big executive car. It lacks the fun factor small race cars have.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Excellent Car; It Is The Best Car I Had So Far Among The 15 Cars. By NickHairapetian

Lots of room in the front and the back seats. Reilable car. Best of all it only requires service once a year or every 10K miles. Large fuel tank; so you are not forced to stop frequently for gas. Gr... Read More
