Review

Driving this car makes you feel like no one can touch you. The car has great power for the day and can handle pretty well too. The fact that mine is black over black just adds to its presence. For being so heavy, its massive 5.6 liter has enough torque to move this beast faster than you could think was possible. The interior is classic Mercedes; wood throughout, nice leather seats with all the electric options, and easy to understand buttons, make it a great place to sit. This being a 1990, it has a more advanced sound system than years prior, and it sounds quite good considering its now 24 years old. The biggest aspect of the car that lets it down, is of course the gas mileage.

Almost Perfect

Review

This is the 4th SEL I've owned, unfortunately the first three have had tragic deaths, 1 stolen, 1 totaled while parked and 1 caught fire after AC maintenance. I will always go back to these cars, amazing handling for the size, power to spare and has a classic style that will never look old. I've tried to replace this car with other new cars only to be disappointed. Out of the 4 I've spent a total of $20k to purchase and maintain but have driven over 300k miles with never a problem. Here I am 8 years later and still can't believe how amazing these cars are.

Review

When the 560SEL was built, it was the flagship of the Mercedes-Benz lineup. This was before Lexus. MB engineers were given a blank slate (literally) to create the 560SEL. All costs were passed to the buyers, who in 1990 were throwing down about $80k. But that was 1990. What's it like today? I'm a car nut and I love this car. It has character and it gives meaning to the word 'quality'. If you take care of this car as you're supposed to, it can last forever and actually be a good investment (really). If you're in the market for this car, the gas mileage should be no surprise. It's really bad.

Review

I've always been one of those people who could never justify paying gobs of money for a MB. My neighbor sold me a 1990Sel with 132000 for $4500 original owner. Sat for two years in her drive way. Best car I have ever owned. Ride, comfort, power, grace and fun.The ride is a myriad of exhilarations. It feels so safe behind the wheel. I'm looking to buy my wife a E420 for our 25 annniverary. Yes it's worth the money. It's that nice!

Unbelievable

Review

I've driven my 560SEL for 5 years now and every time I get in, I still smile. I didn't think there was a car that could be built like this. It feels like it's carved from a solid block of steel. It has 111K miles and there's not a squeak or rattle to be heard. Sure, it gets so-so gas mileage but it makes up for it and more with excellent road manners and quiet comfort that today would cost well over $90k. On the road, it goes where you point it and never complains, no matter what the speed. I just love it.

Ride is somewhat harsh which is normal with this era of S class MB's Handling enhanced with the addition of AMG 18" Alloy wheels with low profile rubber Door glass doesnt seal correctly when closing doors with windows up unless you push on glass.

Review

A true example of fine quality. I bought mine used knowing it was going to need about $5000 worth of stuff fixed from sitting ,It had low miles on it mid 60's. Since then All I can say she has well over 200,000. ZERO PROBLEMS! Just do the service's and it will never let you down. Plus if your a "do it yourselfer," these things are a breeze to work on. The myth of its a BENZ??? Thats bs. more nuts and bolts but simpler than anything I have ever worked on. But you do need the right tools when it come to certain things. Not that often though. And there are well tricks to certain things that help. Buy the repair manuel on CD from mbusa.

German Perfection

Review

This is the Best car on the face of the earth. It is built like a tank, and is made to last a lifetime. The German quality and craftsmanship is evident in every aspect of this car. I absolutely love this vehicle and praise the german minds that invented it. The only cars that can probably come close to the Mercedes are the BMW 7 series, and the lexus, (BMW being closer). Mercedes Benz is without a doubt THE safest car ruling the world. It is built to endure any crash at any speed, and still preserve its integrity. I love Mercedes and would like to tell lexus to start making their OWN cars and stop copying Mercedes.
