Review of the 2004 Maybach 62

  • This German take on the handcrafted British super-luxury saloon satisfies in most every way but can't match the conspicuous splendor of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Unbelievably luxurious cabin, smooth ride, handles and accelerates well for a 6,000-pound vehicle.

  • Cons

    Costs more than twice as much as an S600, too many controls pulled from Mercedes' parts bin, feels cumbersome in heavy traffic, bland styling.

    This marks the debut year for the Maybach 62.

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.




It's ok

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.




Top of the line

With this vehicle, the designers thought of every imaginable luxury possible and than some. The exterior design is very modest and somewhat down plays to what's hidden inside and under the hood. The makers of this vehicle (a joint venture between Daimler Benz - Chrysler) created new auto-technology, leading the way in vehicle innovation from pre-crash technology to translucent material that illuminates by running a weak electrical current through it. The seating is spacious and the control of the rear environment is unsurpassed by any other luxury vehicle offered. You will NOT find another vehicle that offers what the Maybach offers. This vehicle renders all others, OBSOLETE... Derek :)




From my point of view

I love my Maybach but, this is my business car, I used to own a Mercedes Benz 500 sel and to me they feel like almost the same car. Although the maybach is better it does burn a lot of gas compared to my other cars. It is not really that much fun to drive. It feels safe inside and handles like a limo. This a very good car, but not for someone who like the real driving experience.




Quite amazing

Vehicle: 2004 Maybach 62 4dr Sedan (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)

This is the most wonderful car i have ever purchased. The inside is a dream, confortable leather seats providing a large amount of leg room. Althogh the car is driven by my driver the ride feels smooth and the acceleration is a dream. The sound system offers top quality sound and the Tele's placed in the back of the seats make that 6 hour ride even shorter!! i would recommmed this car to anyone that is if you can afford its price tag.. however it is money well spent
