1996 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is amazing. It rides smoothly, has the power when it is needed, and it still has the looks after 15 years.


Best Features

Hood ornament, Bose audio, Powerful V8


Worst Features

Should have darker windows when it is stock.

Review

When I bought the vehicle used, the previous owner did not take care of all the maintenance that was supposed to be taken care of. Despite that, I put money into all the maintenance that was supposed to be done, and it drives like a dream. The drive before the maintenance was nice, however now, it really drives like I expected.


Best Features

I like the fact that I can hit my keyless remote on the car to roll up the windows.


Worst Features

A remote that can be further away from the vehicle.

Review

The above title stated clearly: this is
the best car I ever ride on highway. A
perfect balance between performance and
luxury. With the 5.0 litter V-8, the S-
500 is, (may I say), sporty at highway
speed. Plenty of passing power/touque,
and the car achieves the speed in such
a quiet and effortless manner. The gas
mileage is not too bad, since most of
the time I do not need to rev the
engine high to extract performance.


Best Features

Performance; Pick up speed at 60mph. Quiet; Design; Solid finish; Excellent workmanship. Excellent stereo.


Worst Features

It's kind of too big and too heavy. Can be difficult to find a parking space on city street.
