2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 4dr Sedan (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)
My husband has been a Mercedes-Benz afficianado for decades but I have always bought whatever car I thought looked the best, which has led me to Audi and BMW many times over the years. Those vehicles were very enjoyable to own but were hopelessly unreliable. I just purchased a new car following my husband's advice (he has an S550 himself) and have never been this pleased with a car. The S is so refined and luxurious I can hardly fathom how I lived without it all this time. This truly is the best luxury sedan available today. So far it is completely problem free and it has that bank vault solidity to it, I am so enamored with this car.
Wonderfully comfortable seats, spacious trunk, electronics that are easy for me to use, effortless power, beautiful cabin design, all the luxury I could ever want in a single car
Gas mileage is simply atrocious and the small exterior mirrors can make certain situtations difficult
