This is one of the safest cars on the road and great gas mileage.
This diesel engine keeps on going.
94 model had a recall on the motors by Mercedes and most have been replaced.
Don't buy one that hasn't been.
When your life/kids,grandkids are worth it or for commuting it can't be beat!! Excellent gas mileage 28-30mpg on the highway!!

One of the last big body diesels that
Mercedes made. But they forgot to
design the engine properly so a good
amount of them failed pre-maturely. At
around 59000 miles this engine needed
to be completely rebuilt. Other than
that, this car is a pleasure to drive
especially for long haul trips.

This is for the S350 Turbodiesel version of the S Class. This is a very comfortable vehicle. The power seats are very easy to adjust anyway. Acceleration is pretty poor with the diesel model. Rear leg room in this short wheelbase version is okay but not good. Features abound this car feels modern even though it's nearly 9 years old. However many of these turbo diesel models are known to have their engines fail before 60000 miles which is what happened to mine. Great mpg though.
The big Benz gains Mercedes' new alphanumeric nomenclature that makes it easier to identify the vehicle family and engine size. Fuel economy is improved for the S-Class, and all but the S600 switch to H-rated tires for increased traction in inclement weather.
