1994 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S420 4dr Sedan


Review

first Mercedes I owned was a used POS 1993 e230 and I hated that thing and I have despised Mercedes since. I recently purchased a 1994 s420(has many problems, 3 hoses leaking power steering,one window and door lock doesnt work, seats are ripped apart, and needs minor body work BUT.. at 114k and paid only $1500 I had to get it. even with me leaving puddles everywhere i go of power steering fluid I LOVE THIS CAR!(i flip cars over 10 years and this is MY FAVORITE car of all time!! it still turns heads and people do stop and stare. Everyone from young to old love this and they tell me. I do work myself on this and parts arent that bad. I love this car as is! I cant wait to get things fixed!


Favorite Features

It has everything except a glass sunroof, but not complaining. the Double pain bullet proof glass, love it. for a 1994 it has more things than my 2000 740i tho maybe this s-class compares more to the 750il? either way it has it all.


Suggested Improvements

Review

I bought this vehicle with 180k on it. The body and interior is still flawless vehicle drive like new I do 150 miles a day both ways to work and I have not had any regrets. Gas mileage is hard because of the premium fuel but well worth the quality of ride and comfort quick on acceleration for a heavy car and quiet as a mouse


Favorite Features

retractable headrest.

Review

This is by far the finest car I have ever driven and have ever had the pleasure of owning. This is a large car that is much larger than the little Lexus LS430. Do not get me wrong, the Lexus LS430 is a great little car, but does not compare to this much larger and nicer Benz. There just is no comparison. I have seen attempts to compare The Mercedes W140 to Lexus, and I can tell you, there is no comparison. The Mercedes W140 is an awesome car! Just awesome! The price for admission is not cheap, but if you can afford admission, you will be rewarded with an experience that is like no other. Power, handling, safety, German good looks, super smooth and super silent.


Favorite Features

Power, handling, smoothness, silence, German good looks, safety, stopping power, headlight brightness.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder or holders. It has one in the glove box. Give me a break! No drive throughs in Germany, but still. Give us a cup holder or 2 that works! Thank you.

Review

Since I have owned this car I feel nothing but joy and freedom when I drive it. The power that it delivers makes me wonder why I waited so long to purchase one. This is my first Mercedes but definitely not the last, I promise.


Favorite Features

The engine


Suggested Improvements

Improve the transmission for quicker response.

Review

There is so much class and style packed into this vehicle it should weigh more. Can't get over how comfortable, quiet and quick this sedan is. It is grace on wheels. My only regret...I waited so long to get one.


Favorite Features

Trunk latch too cool! Driver controls arranged well.


Suggested Improvements

NONE
