2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Just recently purchased this vehicle
and it has an incredible feel on the
road with above average acceleration.I
have previously owned an E-Class and
this far exceeds it.There is little to
dislike about the performance. The
mileage is better than expected.


Best Features

Overall appearance of the vehicle and the performance. Bose Sound System is the best I have had.


Worst Features

The Navigation and Audio System Controls are not as simple as Lexus and if the navigation map is running you have to press the audio button to change radio settings. The Handle on the Jack in the Trunk does not fit properly in the space provided and causes the trunk floor to be uneven.

Review

i just got my S430 a couple days ago
and i love it. the interior is
amazing. it feels as if you were in
first class in an air plain. the engin
is very quiet and the handeling is
great. the acceleration on this car is
also great. for a over 3000 lb car the
acceleration is very quick(6.9 sec).
the nav. screen is also very big and
legable. i also love the dashboard. it
is big bright and clear. the tire
preasure monitor is also a good thing
to own. but my overall favorite thing
is the driver and passenger seats. i
would use them in my livingroom if i
had a chance. they are like floting on
a clowd.


Best Features

nav system. seat. interion design and exterior design. fuel eco.

Review

i have owned 2 lexus and a jaruar but
if you die without owning a mercedes
you've missed something. there are
faster cars, cheaper cars,and even more
reliable cars. however, this S model
does everything so nicely,with so much
snob appeal that if you can afford it,
i would tell you to go for it.
remember, when you die your kids will
go through your money like water
through a goose. spend some on yourself
while you can. the 500S, amg, and 600S
are overkill,totally unnecessary but if
having a car that will hold 200mph
turns you on. they are available.


Best Features

everything. ride, handling,finish, crowd appeal, and plain old comfort.


Worst Features

some of the colors offered are horrible.

Review

Driving a 98 S500 for a number of
years was a lot of fun, but nothing
compared to the 2004 S430. More power
than the old S500, better handling and
a load of features make my new Benz an
absolute pleasure to drive.


Best Features

Control systems including surround sound stereo, DVD navigation system, climate control and upgraded & heated seats are all fantastic. Thought the power trunk closer was a stretch, but appreciate it as well. Handling and acceleration terrific.


Worst Features

None

Review

I originally had a 2000 S430, and this
2004 is leaps and bounds an improvement
over that car. The Seven speed tranny
is smooth, and responsive. Love the
exterior and the interior. The quality
improvements inside are amazing. The
exterior is Black Opal, with Grey
interior. The combination is beautiful.


Best Features

The Navigation system. The DVD update is a huge improvement over the old version. A nice larger screen as well.


Worst Features

The seats are a bit firm, but I am used to that.
