This entry level Mercedes has stood the test of time. The styling is not outdated, and reflects the classic look of the S-class of the year. The electrical system is a little buggy, but so is the story with a German car. Major repairs include the Tranny being resealed, and replacement of the AC compressor, but overall the car has shown remarkable endurance, especially considering my mother never changed the oil
The turning radius of the car is unparalleled. You can cut a U turn from one lane to another.
Backseat room is lacking, but if passengers complain- they can take their own cars!
