    I Like It — Comfort and dependability. I wish that I had the regular cruise control instead of the Distronic. Great color. Wish that I could find an S600 in this color and stone interior without the Distronic. Otherwise this is a great car. Decent fuel mileage and a fantastic ride.

    Pros: Comfort and dependability

    Cons: Distronic

    Very Good, Fast, Stylish Car — Great car!!!! Super fast and super stylish!! Powerful growling noise of the V12 engine has all eyes on you! Super reliable with great handling and a very nice car to have overall. It was once worth 160,000$ in 2003 and now I can see why. Fuel economy could be better, 13/19, and the maintenance cost can cost more than the car itself in todays value. But overall great car to drive, and show-off in.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Super Fast! Super Reliable! Super Stylish!

    Cons: Bad gas millage, 13/19, that requires premium fuel. But it is a V12 afterall. maintenance costs can be unreal and usually cost you up to 10-20k to fix most problems in the car.

    Great Handling Luxury Sedan With Refined Road Manners — I've owned many Mercedes benz cars over the years and this is my second favorite S Class. My favorite is my 1997 S Class 420 that I still own. This S430 was overall a great car with no issues and fair maintenance costs.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Silky smooth powertrain, quiet cruising, a pleasure

    Cons: None

    One Of Our Favourite Cars! — The performance of this car, its build quality, appearance & fun factor is very good but this car is meant for people of the higher society & not just anyone who has money. The car itself expresses the sheer boldness of the people in the vehicle!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Usually this vehicle is armour plated!

    Cons: Rather expensive & not very fuel efficient.

    Awesome — I've owned a few powerful cars, WS-6 ram air trans am, a 96 impala SS, a 05 6.0 GTO, and a 06 magnum SRT-8, and this is my favorite vehicle to drive, lap of luxury but enough power to beat a stock corvette, you have to love it!!! total sleeper.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: kompressor V8

    Cons: brakes squeak and supercharger chirps

    Glad I Bought It Second Hand. Would Have Hated To Pay 80k Brand New ! — Love this car. Spacious, comfortable and powerful engine. Remarkably great mileage for a V-8. If cost is a concern, wrong make for you. Cup holders are not useful. Great for long drives. Top class & will turn heads ! You have arrived.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Class with comfort

    Cons: Terrible cup holders

    Very Practical Luxary And Speed When You Needed. — feels like an elephant, really. But the suspension and wheel length are brilliantly porported so it's handling is tight, hard, solid and yet comfortable. Only remember you're in a big car driving it that's all it does the rest for you. Brilliant car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Family car

    Cons: c charge

    2003 S55 - Nothing But The Best! — Just purchased a 'very slightly used' S55 AMG. Nothing compares. Sold the Bentley and the Corvette...just don't need them anymore.

    Pros: too many to list

    Cons: none

    My First Car — This car drives smoothly, but its very large. The Back seats are very spacious and there is plenty of room in the trunk.

    Pros: Fast car, fun to drive

    Cons: It's just a little bit to big.

    Mmmmmmmm — First time you drive that car, be aware when you think you're speeding, you're already driving 200-220 KPH. Great car in every point!

    Pros: 4matic is amazing when driving in 1 foot of snow !

    Cons: price !
