Good Car, Not Thrilled, But Good Car
By ibitty on


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


This is a very beautiful car. Not the best, but nice. Really the best on the market right now, but not sure that says a lot. S550 best of a choice for the current market when compared to the Quattroporte, 7 Series, A8. Cars I wish it came close too, the driving feel and comfort of my 2001 740iL or the elegance of my 2006 Range Rover. I have had it to the shop twice for TPMS and a tire that kept going flat.

Best Features

The bottom of the front seat that extends out. I have long legs, what a simple but wonderful feature.

Worst Features

Side mirrors are too small. Passenger side mirror does not tint at night and while the tilt in reverse is a great feature, the tilt then turn out renders it useless. Ventilated seats sounded wonderful, too bad no air comes through the holes.
