Absolutely loved this car from day 1. Rear-ended in January,2010 by a speeding vehicle. 87 yr old mom and I should have been totaled. I drove my car to the side of the road. I am looking for a replacement and want exactly the same car. I drive my Mercedes for 20 years and want another 10 in this model. If I could I would buy every single one on the road and drive a different color every day. This was Mercedes BEST...to date.
Power. Safety. Turning radius. Soundless ride.
Drink holders are convenient but not comfortable for a passenger. Back seat is so far back I need a tool to get anything off the seat...but don't change it. Put outside mirrors further forward.
Great vehicle all around some small minor issues however in long drives superb!! great take off, great traction, sounf system is real cool, and speed 138mhp through Mojave Desert, CA. Stop on a dime!!! This is a First Class Car especially when its detailed Black and Black everyone looks at like a with a stare of (Who is in there?) great feeling. Must keep up service not that expensive about $800-$900 per year on the low end. Solid ride very safe.
Double Pan Windows, Sound System, and Smooth Ride. Quit Inside, AC Blows great, lots of room, great winter car.
Hood Release should not come undone when changing Radiator. Needed better cup holders. Sould have been a Tip Tronic
Nothing but praise! Had a '95 S420 with problems.Give it a second chance, I am so glad I did. Black on black = prestige and class!I Enjoy every trip (San Fran to L.A) Satisfaction? Don't skimp with the services, it pays in the long run! Comfort and style = 1998 S420 MB!
Rain sensitive wipers, rear sunscreen. Programable gate. Garage door and home light security. Sun and moonroof. Economy on long distance, av.495 miles!
Cup holders and their location as well as heating or chilling capabilities
My husband bought this car on a crazy
impulse, He was so proud and happy
about driving a benz around. He got a
great deal and it only had 30k on it,
but it has been nothing but trouble
since he bought it. We have spend over
$6000 on fixing this car since he
bought it. It has been in the shop
longer that it has been out of it. I
know the person before me said that the
vehicle is great, but I think he or she
must me a benz dealer because everyone
I talked to told me that they have had
problems with their S420 as well. This
was a mistake that we will never do
