2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


I read about quality issues with Mercedes and I cannot relate. I have had 2 recent S classes and 2 SL classes. All with no problems. The S500 does 0-60 in sub 6 seconds and is quite a surprise. Must be the 7 speed transmission. I wish the engine sounded a little more throaty. It's too quiet. The S500 is more economical than my 2003 S430?? Don't know why, but a whole mile per gallon better in town.

Best Features

Ride control, DVD based GPS, pickup

Worst Features

Better stereo sound - Lexus Mark Levinson is better and Infinity is even better than that!
