2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Made a deposit on BMW 745Li over one
year ago. When the new BMW came out I
was very impressed with acceleration,
handling, and braking, but interior
weirdness and exterior styling turned
me off so that I passed on my custom
ordered car when it arrived. I've
bought four BMW's in the past. Tried
Lexus and Mercedes. Bought the Mercedes
and love it so far. BMW could have had
a great, no wonderful, car but somone
overdosed on caffeine when they
designed the exterior and the truly
crazy overengineered controls.
Delighted with the Mercedes.

Best Features

Exterior and interior styling. Cooled and heated seats with massage. Auto close doors and trunk (standard not an option). Voice control. Long wheel base (again, standard not optional). Mercedes service.

Worst Features

CD changer in the dash. DVD based navigation system. Everything else is near perfect.
