Amazing Benz!
By John Henry AIA on


1997 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 2dr Coupe


A great car for a big person. Seating is the best in its class. Performance is there when you want it. Whisper quiet, soaks the road up. Best on the highway but slow cruises catch attention. Can be a bit wallowy but shock adjustment allows tighter handling. A very heavy car, so not typically thrown around corners, but can be. Large trunk, thirsty engine, but supremely satisfying. Very rare to see on the road. 'Slab' look does not feel outdated, especially in the coupe. Reliability is very good, but parts are pricey when required. Midrange acceleration is amazing. This is not a dragster. Great looks, super feel, quiet and extremely comfortable mean a 9.5 out of 10 for me.

Best Features

Radar type warning when getting close to objects is nice. Steering and braking very good. Quiet inside and so comfortable for 6 footers. Leather stitched dash is nice. All controls great. Adjustable front and rear suspension height for larger rims/tires.

Worst Features

Yes, the cloth under dash could be more elegant. A bit bulky, but that is the nature of this chiseled out of rock luxury automobile. Newer models seem less solid and overstyled. This is the last of the best big Benz's.
