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.
