1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320 SWB 4dr Sedan


Review

I am coming out of a 2002 E320. There is a remarkable difference in the two. The S drives smooth. Dollar for dollar good gas mileage for a big heavy sedan. This car corners very well, stops very. I do see the on board computer technology different in 2002 vs. 1999. Better still undecideded


Best Features

Leather interior, Bose system superior, wood grain one of the best I have seen in cars under 100 g's. Good lighting on the road


Worst Features

Heating and air conditioning could be stronger and respond quicker. Xenon lights should be standard.CD player should be standard

1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320 LWB 4dr Sedan


Review

I leased this vehicle with low mileage from my business partner who had it for 4 years. It has been reliable with few problems. (However, the problems are expensive to get fixed once they occur.) I would highly recommend this car if you want top quality and willing to pay for the maintainance. Will be getting my business partners 2002 Lexus LS 430 nest year and will miss Mercedes materials.


Best Features

Ride, gas mileage and interior room and features.


Worst Features

Lower maintenance costs. Germany needs to learn from the Japanese.

Worst Features

better cupholders, they seen cheap.

Review

This is luxury. I have driven many cars and this is the finest car I have ever driven. only 750 sold in the US between 1995-1999. so if you get one it is one of an elite group.


Best Features

all around high quality components and construction


Worst Features

just a slight increase in gas mileage
