1997 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 4dr Sedan


I have owned this car for 6 years. Bought it used with 90K mileage - had been in love with the look of the vehicle since I first saw it at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1997. When I found a nice used one, I bought it. Needed some work to restore it and I did that. It is a very fun and comfortable car to drive. Costs more than the norm to repair it, but it is an experience you just cannot find in a normal car. I use it for highway driving and know that I will have the performance and safety that I need. It also happens to be quite beautiful.

Best Features

Performance, speed, and wonderful sound system. Cruises like a big cat.

Worst Features

The replacement parts are very expensive and I am not sure that Mercedes could not have done better with that. My local dealership is also not helpful. I use a private import service center instead and get much better service there.
