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


Much better in in aspects then my 04 S430. By far the best under 100k Luxury Sedan. The car adapts to your driving style! How the new Consumer Reports can rate the Lexus LS higher is beyond me. It takes a bit to get used to the new COMAND, yet after that you will never want to go back to plastic push buttons again. How on earth could anyone think the controls are difficult to use, unless they never used a computer mouse in their lifetime. I am picky and looked at all in this class, and very satisfied with my purchase. European Luxury Sedans just have better road feel than the Japanese. The S Class has more steel interior parts than Lexus LS & is just a better handling car.

Best Features

Interior materials, ease of controls, voice command, seats, trunk closer, auto closing doors, engine power, sound system. The overall quality.

Worst Features

Steel instead of plastic door lock pins, steel grille (sure its minor, it's tough to find improvements)
