2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


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 wonít 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

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

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


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.

2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

Very poor transmission is in this car. The car makes a high pitch noise when you shifting from 1st to 2nd. For a car over 100k that should not be the case!


Best Features

Great controls. Start the car and drive. BMW can keep their confusing IDRIVE.


Worst Features

Fix the transmission
