2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 Rwd 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Just recently purchased this vehicle
and it has an incredible feel on the
road with above average acceleration.I
have previously owned an E-Class and
this far exceeds it.There is little to
dislike about the performance. The
mileage is better than expected.


Best Features

Overall appearance of the vehicle and the performance. Bose Sound System is the best I have had.


Worst Features

The Navigation and Audio System Controls are not as simple as Lexus and if the navigation map is running you have to press the audio button to change radio settings. The Handle on the Jack in the Trunk does not fit properly in the space provided and causes the trunk floor to be uneven.

Review

i just got my S430 a couple days ago
and i love it. the interior is
amazing. it feels as if you were in
first class in an air plain. the engin
is very quiet and the handeling is
great. the acceleration on this car is
also great. for a over 3000 lb car the
acceleration is very quick(6.9 sec).
the nav. screen is also very big and
legable. i also love the dashboard. it
is big bright and clear. the tire
preasure monitor is also a good thing
to own. but my overall favorite thing
is the driver and passenger seats. i
would use them in my livingroom if i
had a chance. they are like floting on
a clowd.


Best Features

nav system. seat. interion design and exterior design. fuel eco.

This car has a class of its own no

Every other cars tries to be like this

interior quality is splendid. What more
can you ask for.

2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 Rwd 4dr Sedan (5.5L 12cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Fun to drive factor is a 10+.
Unbelievable torque. Handling and
braking are excellent for a sedan this
big and heavy. Styling is understated.
Comfort and inside room are excellent.
Keyless go feature is excellent,
however it has failed 4 times in the
first year. Highway mileage is 18-19
mpg, city about 12mpg. Built in phone
is OK with vocal commands useful. Get
parktronic - it's needed.
Automatic trunk opener/closer is a
favorite - used frequently. Auto Tire
pressure reading is useful, but
a pain to deal with. I've driven MBZ E
Series, Audi A8, Jaguar VandenPlas,
Jaguar XJR, MBZ CL500. This car is by
far the best sedan! Bought easily over
an S55. Great car!

Review

Within an hour of bringing this brand
new car home the passenger side xenon
headlights burned out. The car has a
vibration at 55 mph and above. The
car has been back to the dealership
for 5 days out of the 8 I have had it
and they still cannot fix the
vibration. They put brand new michelin
tires on it yesterday and it still
vibrates. They are calling in a MB
technician next week to see what is
wrong. It vibrates so bad that the
passenger seat and headrest shake. The
cupholders are really bad. The
dealership has been very professional
but have been unable to fix the
problem. Wish I had purchased the
LS430.


Best Features

I like the NAV and Bose surround sound and the engine is incredible.


Worst Features

MB quality is poor. Needs better cupholders.
