I had a s430 and it was a fine car. In
the winter the traction was adequate.
The s4304matic is much better in snow
and rain. The newer model is improved
but lacks a cassette player that was
previously included. Fuel economy is
slightly less. I average 17mpg
seats are excellant
eliminate cheap cup holder in center
console and bring back cassette
