Still needs improvement

2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


I believe Mercedes still has a lot of room to improve on their "high end" car. It was always my dream to own a "Big Mercedes" for the style, luxury, and comfort. I find it to be satisfying with the car, but disappointed with the lack of attention to the details. This car always had some minor electrical problems (turning lights,ets) that the dealer can never seem to figure it out. Navigation system needs major improvement (with touch screen). Nevertheless, I like the style and smooth acceleration of its fine motor. It's like a dream come true, but not quite perfect.

Best Features

Folding mirrors, airomatic doors and trunk locking system, rear shade.

Worst Features

For the price we paid, it definitely needs a better Nav system (touch screen system with a bigger screen)
