Best S series yet
By MTech8 on


2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


Had every generation of MB S class since 1991. This one by far is the best one ever! I can't truly comment on reliability yet since its still a new car. But so far no problems. The drive and the features of the car are great! Plenty of power for everyday driving. If you're a racer, you should be looking at AMG models. Gave the fuel economy an 8. It drinks gas like water, but not uncommon for V8. Think there is definite room for improvement though. Cross shopped against BMW 7 series. Choose this model due to the 7 series getting a model revision very soon.

Best Features

Nappa leather is ultra luxurious (but worried about wear and tear). Keyless go rocks.

Worst Features

Range indicator (like to know how much miles I can still drive!) Naming rules for Navigation (annoying having to classify as home/work only). Menu button for Command system (easy way to get to the main menu without having to back through everything else) Bluetooth can take less space!
