2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


Review

S500 Sport. Forearms will grow because
it takes real strength to guide car
thru turns at low end. Best enjoyed at
over 60 mph. Awesome acceleration at
high end. Beautiful but uninspiring
driver around town. Needs to be
quicker. Plush interior, cavernous
backseat. Nav system is not intuitive.
Average sound system.


Best Features

Gorgeous exterior. Telephone system is a business person's dream. Comfortable and spacious.


Worst Features

Increase assisted steering at low end. Upgrade sound system. New Nav. Eliminate plastic foundations for front seats.

Review

Why didn't I drive this car before? My
wife took our first test drive, riding
in the back seat. Her opinion, "I have
never paid much attention to cars,
before. This is the only car I have
ever really wanted!" If you drive this
car, you won’t be able to enjoy any
other automobile.

You can have the S500, and other models.
Our S430 frequently gets over 29 mpg,
on trips, and 22-25 in city driving.
Specifically, I got 29.4 mpg, driving
from Memphis to Cincinnati.

I have driven my 1990 Miata over 70,000
miles; yes, I still have it; and, yes,
I'll keep it till I die; however, the S
Class takes the same turns, almost as
fast as the Miata; and, it doesn't lean
as much.


Best Features

Our favorite feature is the sleek aerodynamic styling, and the stunning Brilliant Silver finish. Our neighborhood seems to grow Bimmers and Benzes on trees; but, the neighbors seem to like ours best, judging from the stares it receives


Worst Features

I’ve been using computers since 1982; but, I guess I’ll have to go to classes, to learn how to master the navigation system; but, what the heck, I don’t really need it, anyway, not when we have yahoo maps to consult.

Review

This is hands-down the best & classiest
auto built. I can tell you the looks
that I get while driving this car are
amazing! Valet always seems to run to
park my car first! They all love the
chance to drive this beauty! I have put
more than 10k miles on it in 4 months
because I love to drive it! Handles
curves in the rain with no problem.


Best Features

Stereo system, auto door closure, auto rear-view mirror, backseat side& rear window shades,(rear window is auotomatic touch),the smooth suspension........everything!!!


Worst Features

More user-friendly Nav unit with less cd's(or all included free),cup holder needs improvement,wider variety of options(like solar heating & air that is only available on another class MB) More service shops (not dealerships) I drive 4 hours to take mine in for service.
