2007 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
Great car, easy to use. The electronics are vey easy to understand, the controller and dash controls are great. The transmision is terrific, and the fuel consumption on the highway is 24mpg, which is pretty good for a car this size. The only thing that I don't like is the design of the front bumper. The front grille is too close to the edge of the bumper and offers very little front end protection. Be careful where you park this car. Keep clear of SUVs and any vehicle with a wheel mounted on the rear. Mercedes is going to sell a lot of grilles for this car.
Gear shift and radio. Parktronic is a must
Front bumper design. Give front grille more protection. You hit a bush with this car, and you need a new grille. You can push it in with your pinky. What were the engineers thinking when they built this? I guess it looks good. The hood release is in a hard place to find.
