SHIFTING IS ROUGH
By JIM S55 on

Vehicle

2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Review

I HAD THIS CAR FOR 6 MONTHS BEFORE TURNING IT IN FOR AN S600. THE S55 WAS A BLAST TO DRIVE, BUT IT WAS A BIT TO SPORTY FOR SUCH A LARGE SEDAN. IF YOU HIT THE GAS FROM A STOP, A LOT OF TIMES IT WOULD BUCK, AND THE SHIFTING WAS NOT NEARLY AS SMOOTH AS I FELT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. JUST A PERSONAL OPINION. THE S600 IS AMAZING! IT APPEARS TO HAVE MORE POWER,( 2 TURBOS) SMOOTHER SHIFTING, AND EVERY TOY THAT MB MAKES. SUEDE HEADLINER, PHONE, 4 SEAT HEAT/AC/POWER, WOODPKG, KEYLESS GO, VOICE COMMAND...ALL STANDARD. IF YOU CAN SPEND THE EXTRA $20K, GO FOR THE 600.

Favorite Features

STERRING WHEEL SHIFT BUTTONS.

Suggested Improvements

WORK ON THE SHIFTING. IT IS TO ROUGH FOR A LUXURY SEDAN. IT COULD ALSO BE A BIT BETTER INSULATED.
