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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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

2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Fun to drive factor is a 10+. Unbelievable torque. Handling and braking are excellent for a sedan this big and heavy. Styling is understated. Comfort and inside room are excellent. Keyless go feature is excellent, however it has failed 4 times in the first year. Highway mileage is 18-19 mpg, city about 12mpg. Built in phone is OK with vocal commands useful. Get parktronic - it's needed. Automatic trunk opener/closer is a favorite - used frequently. Auto Tire pressure reading is useful, but a pain to deal with. I've driven MBZ E Series, Audi A8, Jaguar VandenPlas, Jaguar XJR, MBZ CL500. This car is by far the best sedan! Bought easily over an S55. Great car!

Review

Within an hour of bringing this brand new car home the passenger side xenon headlights burned out. The car has a vibration at 55 mph and above. The car has been back to the dealership for 5 days out of the 8 I have had it and they still cannot fix the vibration. They put brand new michelin tires on it yesterday and it still vibrates. They are calling in a MB technician next week to see what is wrong. It vibrates so bad that the passenger seat and headrest shake. The cupholders are really bad. The dealership has been very professional but have been unable to fix the problem. Wish I had purchased the LS430.


Favorite Features

I like the NAV and Bose surround sound and the engine is incredible.


Suggested Improvements

MB quality is poor. Needs better cupholders.
