2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
I still own the S55 AMG I purchased in 2001. I use it as a pleasure vehicle (Driven 1 to 2 times per week), as a partially driven car over the last 10 years it has been a pretty decent vehicle w/ it's share of problems. Overall, it's great vehicle and a huge conversation piece.
Extremely powerful engine, interior design is handsome w/ a great Bose Stereo System. No major mechanical problems w/ the car thus far, looking to purchase the new 2010 S65 AMG.
Navigation needs a lot of work (copy BMW's format), Improve the contour of the 2 front seats (copy BMW's format), Hire the exterior body designers from BMW, they have the ideal. I drive a 750iL on a daily basis and the S55 is my pleasure vehicle.
