Beautiful Set Of Wheels — one of the world's best engineered automobile. it's got everything you ever wanted. this car can pamper you with luxury and can drive like a sports car. except it's a bit bad on gas mileage and maintenance. but those problems will vanish once you sit behind the steering.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: performance and luxury

Cons: expensive maintenance

Would Not Do It Again — The car was a very nice European model. Built like a fine piece of machinery, solid, nice powerful smooth acceleration and breaking. Short story, it was a wonderful car but very expensive to own and maintain. Depreation in 2 years was horrendus.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: A look at me car

Cons: Cost

Luxury At Its Finest — If you want luxury at its finest look no further than this car. I can honestly say that this is basically a mini-limousine with all of the luxuries it has. it has a 4.3 V8 engine. brakes are perfection. It is B E A Utiful inside and out. GPS was included and back seats have light-up vanity mirrors.

Pros: Awesome performance from a luxury sedan

Cons: Huge sedan but it's a nitpick

Love And Hate Relationship — Performance is good it accelerate and handle well. The brake are sometime noisy. Build quality is good, it does have lots of squeaks like it needs oiling at every joint. The appearance is awesome, black with beige interior. Bad for a carpet color, alway getting new mats. Cost of ownership is not bad with gas prices I don't full up that often. Maintenance is be costly. Fun factor is off the scale. The ride is so smooth. Good car to have if you have extra money to spend.

Pros: the get up and go power

Cons: bulbs to be replaced all the time

Standard Is Okay, Luxury Edition Is Amazing!!! —

The standard S430 is your average Big German Executive Saloon. But the S430V is a different story. The S430V's 4.3L V8 produces 4 more bhp than the standard 4.3L V8. Also "Smart cylinders" shut off half of the engine while cruising to save fuel. Inside, the S430V has hand stitched glove soft Nappa leather. The front seats are active and ventilated (heated and cooled). Audio system is upped from 10 speakers to 12. Cabin has both humidifier and dehumidifier to keep humidity at a comfortable level. Windows are double glazed and power IR layer blocks 98% UV rays. Instead of machine built, the S430V is hand built. As a car, the S430V shines. the more powerful 4.3L V8 is whisper quiet, very smooth and cannot be heard idling, but when using the pedal on the right, it gives a very satisfactory V8 roar. 5 speed auto with shift gate transmission is very smooth. Air suspension is extremely responsive, dual mode AirMatic, 1 high for road conditions (i.e. snow, deep water) and extra comfort mode. Active front seats take a bit of time to adjust to, but keep driver and passenger from leaning at all. Air conditioning and heating is brilliant, the cabin never fogs up or becomes too dry thanks to the humidifier and dehumidifier. Overall a truly fantastic car.

Pros: Supremely Comfortable
Fuel Efficient
Relatively fast

Cons: Really expensive compared to standard S-Class:
Standard S430 $73000 MSRP
Luxury Edition S430V $110000 MSRP
Standard S500 $83000 MSRP

Elegant Style On Four Wheels — The Mercedes Benz S500 is and has always been one of the greatest road cars engineered for the drivers of today. It has all the creature comforts imaginable for a car and one feature lost on many...interior room. The spacious interior makes long drives incredibly comfortable and short jaunts effortless. The engine and drive-train are quiet and provide great performance around town and on the highway. All in all, this has been the best car we've owned to date!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great style, roomy and quiet interior, smooth and quiet engine plus fantastic road manners at 35 mph and 70 mph.

Cons: None
