1999 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320 SWB 4dr Sedan


This car is the ultimate highway cruiser. The 6 cyl engine has plenty of power for passing and puts many V8's to shame with its smoothness and power. I have owned this car for many years and it has been super reliable and rather inexpensive to operate. If maintained correctly a Mercedes and even a complicated S class can provide years of reliable transportation at a reasonable cost. Even though this is a large car with a 6 cylinder engine its very fast. For its size it also handles really well. I had to follow a co worker in his Nissan 350z and had no problem keeping up with him even with his attempts to loose me on back roads.

Best Features

Double paned Argon filled windows, Multi-door seals with pneumatic closure system, 14 speaker Bose Audio, Brutally cold A/C system that can run for up to 15 minutes when the car is off. Bank vault like noise deadening. Ride quality and handling. Reliability A+++

Worst Features

Bring this car back into production. The new S class cars while dripping with electronics don't hold a candle to the build quality and features this car has. Ergonomics could be improved but some of the weirdness gives this car more personality than the boring Japanese cars.
