We have had many Benzs over the years, and we just got tired of all the mechanical problems and costs. We were ready for a car to rely upon, that was luxurious, comfortable and beautiful. We got it with the LS 460. The car is awesome. We considered BMW also, but I know we made the right choice. Until you live with the car, you cannot appreciate it.
The build quality, fit and finish, technology (Smart key, navigation system, the Mark Levinson audio system, electronic parking brake, are all awesome).
