Most people will never get the opportunity to drive this car. It is best off being admired from a distance. This vehicle has spent considerable time being fixed under warranty. The 62 is designed as a chauffeured vehicle but lacks the care and consideration that should be paid to such a vehicle. It is a very nice car but not worth the money. Resale on it is horrible so if you buy one get ready to lose a lot of money. And look out for when the vehicle comes out of warranty. Those computers will wreak havoc on your checking account! Fuel economy stinks.
I've never contributed to one of these pages, but after reading the reviews posted here by supposed Maybach owners, I had to take the time to do this. My 62 is an '05, and it is the second one I've had. The first one, an '04, was plagued by so many problems that Maybach bought it back from me after finally admitting they could not fix the numerous problems (too many to list here, but think of something a car has and it broke -- multiple times). I made the mistake of purchasing another, hoping for a different experience. Let's just say when I called the dealer to trade this car on something else, it was worth $120k less than I had paid 4 months earlier.
With this vehicle, the designers thought of every imaginable luxury possible and than some. The exterior design is very modest and somewhat down plays to what's hidden inside and under the hood. The makers of this vehicle (a joint venture between Daimler Benz - Chrysler) created new auto-technology, leading the way in vehicle innovation from pre-crash technology to translucent material that illuminates by running a weak electrical current through it. The seating is spacious and the control of the rear environment is unsurpassed by any other luxury vehicle offered. You will NOT find another vehicle that offers what the Maybach offers. This vehicle renders all others, OBSOLETE... Derek :)
I love my Maybach but, this is my business car, I used to own a Mercedes Benz 500 sel and to me they feel like almost the same car. Although the maybach is better it does burn a lot of gas compared to my other cars. It is not really that much fun to drive. It feels safe inside and handles like a limo. This a very good car, but not for someone who like the real driving experience.
This is the most wonderful car i have ever purchased. The inside is a dream, confortable leather seats providing a large amount of leg room. Althogh the car is driven by my driver the ride feels smooth and the acceleration is a dream. The sound system offers top quality sound and the Tele's placed in the back of the seats make that 6 hour ride even shorter!! i would recommmed this car to anyone that is if you can afford its price tag.. however it is money well spent
