Initial Impressons of the new S Class
By C Hull M.D. on
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.
