2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Great car, bought used with 30k miles; strong engine, truly quiet, smooth, amazing ride. But, MB, masters of engineering, why oh why? The black temp adjust clip on rear passenger ventilation is missing. Can't replace $40 clip. You must replace $700 unit (before labor)! That's engineering excellence? Think you forgot who you're engineering for. I fear for the next minor flaw. Also, cupholder is a bust and console space is nill. Love the car overall, but I marvel that a car originally selling for six figures forgets some basics.

Favorite Features

Seat comfort, firm quiet ride, engine power, rear seat package, AMG appearance package

Suggested Improvements

Temp control clip--give me a break! Console space, drink holder, the phone looks like a Star Wars unit? Did that movie come out in 2004?
