Vehicle2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)
ReviewThis car replaced identical 2000 S Class which had numerous electrical and computer problems. New model is free from these glitches. Never had mechanical problem with Mercedes. Enjoy the quality of the burl walnut and interior appointments. New features that I like are the power trunk,keyless go start on the shift knob, voice control on nearly everything,power curtains, digital readout of tire pressures and a much improved navigational system on DVD. Car remains very responsive with sharp turning radius. I don't need AMG assist for my driving.It appears to me M-B has given us many innovations that are quickly copied by other manufactures.
Best FeaturesLighted Mercedes Benz name on door entry sill. No key entry and start system. Power assist door closure. Power assist brakes and other numerous safety features leaving you with the impression this is one safe car.
Worst FeaturesTime for a face lift. Would recommend a slightly bigger body for the S Class with improved trunk space. Needs one single touch(not continous pressure as now required) to adjust seat position. Leather could still be softer. Front drinking cup holders are still atrocious.
