2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


2004's are "satelite ready" but
Mercedes is not saying when the Sirius
Satelite radios will indeed be
available. And of course the
electronics are such that you can't
have one installed at your local
Tweeter store. You pay for a feature
that may never arrive and end up with a
system that you can't modify on your

Only the in dash CD player plays mp3
CD's -not the 6 CD changer in the
trunk, which by the way, a Mercedes
techical bulliten says jams.

Disappointing to say the least.

I'll revisit the Phaeton or wait for
2005 to start the search anew.

Best Features

Ride and quiteness

Worst Features

Update styling. Provide mp3 capable 6 CD changer. Actually implement the Satelite radio program. Get the 7 speed automatic on the 4matic S's.
