The best executive express by Steve from Jersey on 06/07/2009. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz S350, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Image, quality, comfort, performance
Cons: Size - not always easy to find a parking space, running costs including depreciation
Overall review: A better car in every way than its predecessor. It is solid as a rock but also has a sporty feel and has quality written all over it. But don't buy it if you have a limited budget or a small parking space.

The Nicest Car You Can Barely Afford by Mike5215 on 05/22/2008. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz S500, Owned 2 years.
Pros: A first rate luxury sedan by a premier builder. Driving one makes you feel like a king, as opposed to the regular shmoe you really are.
Cons: A bit ponderous and wallowy. Styling is clean and timeless but not especially creative or exciting.
Overall review: The Benz driving experience is absolutely unique to Mercedes Benz. Everything in the car is designed to soothe your senses and pamper you and your guests. It has a certain tactile feel in the materials and the switchgear. There is an aroma of fine leathers and old money. Woodgrain accents are lavishly finished and trimmed, and bent into smooth flowing shapes. No part of the car is left unfinished, right down to the kick panels and the trunk. The seats themselves are works of art, atriculated to the nth degree and every movement handled quietly and gracefully by smooth electric power. The Benz driver should never have to suffer the indignity of abrupt movement, so everything that is not powered is dampend...pull something open, and it closes as though it were encased in maple syrup. All of these elements conspire with the creamy 5.0 liter V8/7 speed AT and the superb suspension to create a bubble of perfect Benzness that insulates one from the less perfect world outside.

What a Ride by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/01/2013. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz S430, Owned 7 years.
Pros: I own a 4matic and it contues to impress me, driving in texas panhandle 80 mph getting 26.4 mpg. Got it stuck in the snow once, just wasnt aware of its capabilities and there was 12 inches of snow on the ground.
Cons: There are some things that fall short, cup holders for instance. But I'll get over them.
Overall review: I have owned this car just over a year and its performance still amazes me. Its ride is like nothing else ive ever experienced and it will be the standard by wich I will compare cars to for the rest of my life. The Navigation is a bit difficult to deal with, just cant figure out all the nuances. I love the styling, of course I wanted a sleeper car. Nothing that stands out to much but that just amazes you when you get to ride in it. The power is just right, milage is great, turning radius is amazing, seats are confortable (messaging is really nice), controls are easy to get too, stereo is wonderful. Just cant say enough.
