2006 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S65 AMG S65 AMG 4dr Sedan (6.0L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

In 2005-06, this car would do 220+ mph off the showroom floor in Germany. A few sports cars have faster 0to60 times, but most don't reach the same top end. Those that do have price tags which are multiples of the S65. Best part of the S65 is that it runs well (and efficiently on one 6-cylinder engine) around town without the need for retuning.

Review

Wow! I've driven high performance cars from a Mustang, Porsche, and even Ferrari. This 2006 S65 AMG is an absolute beast on the road. And a classy beast at that. The best way to describe it would be to say it is a rocket! Its super fast from 0-60, and even pulls hard above that! Pure power, smooth acceleration, superb handling and great comfort! If you can find a way to get your hands on one of these babies, its worth every penny (or dollar in this case) I can't wait to drive tomorrow. Sweet!


Best Features

Power, braking, clean lines and all the bells and whistles! Love it all, can't say enough about it.


Worst Features

I guess the only downside is the 10 MPG. but you have to live with something.

Review

I bought this 06' S-65AMG around 5 months ago. I have to admit I drove everything from the quattroporte to the BMW 760 to the Bentley Continental Flying Spurt and this Benz cleans house. I have around 13k miles already and have taken about 5 road trips to Texas back to St. Louis and this car is the smoothest best handling peppy sports seadan out there. As far as speed I managed to hit 140 MPH and was it ever smooth! Consider the S-class over your average Bimmer!


Best Features

Brembo brakes, Power (hp/torque) 0-60 in just over 4 Seconds! Leather quality and build quality unbelievable!

Review

This is a very satasfiing car. Sure it may be extremely expensive, but in my mind it is worth it. Not only is it fast, but it also has all of the luxury of any other Benz


Best Features

Contouring seats, distronic, cruise control, the rims, the body kit, and of course, the engine


Worst Features

Offer more interior colour choices.

Review

My 9th and last MB. The mechanical problems are endless. AC is noisier than ever. Shifts like a truck. I had the transmission replaced. Now I have vibrations from there. Knobs and buttons are breaking. Speedometer is a full 20% off. Obviously not the German craftsmanship found in earlier models. I went to the factory last year and was astounded to see a huge number of unskilled laborers performing "Technicians" Jobs. I am very unhappy with this vehicle. I got a Mercedes LEMON.


Best Features

Turning Radius.


Worst Features

Stop trying to market cars for the average Joe. Test drive the vehicles like in the "Olden Days". Safety features are not that overwhelming. Fewer Airbags than cheaper Japanese cars
