With a new lease or purchase your bills around 5-6 hundred a month not including Gas and insurance, Thats why the 2008 for me makes sense. 14-16 thousand dollars car older the insurance is less, the payment is less. Youre not competeing. Its transportation, may as well be a S class. room, features like night vision, like a new car is going to have that. Class that will last and wont hurt your @#$ stop showing off and use your head. Save some money, be comfortable and safe. Nothing but the best or nothing! Ford ...WHAT!!

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Dream car

Cons: Not so good on fuel

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

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.

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.)

Pros: The brand probably is the most awesome thing...

Cons: Size, cost, gas milage

Still Looks Like $100k! — Nothing compares to the ride of an S63 AMG. The 550 is nice but you feel the weight and size. The AMG version provides handeling of a coupe with unlimited power. Having the power on the highway to change lanes and accelerate still impresses me 6 years later.

Pros: 517HP! - Power, Ride, Handeling to rival any sports car on the road with the benefit of being a 4 Door sedan

Cons: Fuel Eco (If this is a factor - this car is not for you)
