Most people will never get the opportunity to drive this car. It is best off being admired from a distance. This vehicle has spent considerable time being fixed under warranty. The 62 is designed as a chauffeured vehicle but lacks the care and consideration that should be paid to such a vehicle. It is a very nice car but not worth the money. Resale on it is horrible so if you buy one get ready to lose a lot of money. And look out for when the vehicle comes out of warranty. Those computers will wreak havoc on your checking account! Fuel economy stinks.

I've never contributed to one of these pages, but after reading the reviews posted here by supposed Maybach owners, I had to take the time to do this. My 62 is an '05, and it is the second one I've had. The first one, an '04, was plagued by so many problems that Maybach bought it back from me after finally admitting they could not fix the numerous problems (too many to list here, but think of something a car has and it broke -- multiple times). I made the mistake of purchasing another, hoping for a different experience. Let's just say when I called the dealer to trade this car on something else, it was worth $120k less than I had paid 4 months earlier.

My Maybach is okay. I've got too many cars anyway. It's not the "Crown Jewel" I thought it would be. Unfortunately, I still prefer my convertable Mondial (1992) to this car. I probably will keep it though - I do like rolling up to places in it, though the only people impressed are the people who know what it is (and they are usually guys, not girls). Maybach gets the nod, but I probable will not get another one. My S600 is equal in ride and speed. My SL55 is also just as nice a ride for a third of the cost. Still a "Mac Ride" though.
