I'd buy another S500 by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/07/2007. Trim: 1992 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 500SEL sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Safety and ride comfort because I commute 500 miles a week. Tons of room for guests and kids in the back. Tons of features. Classy act car with superior engineering.
Cons: High cost maintenence and repair. the 5.0 V8 is tough on gas.
Overall review: My 92 isn't showing signs of the harness degredation. If it does I will replace with one for $500 and not sweat it. Beast of car, gets alot of looks. I bought it with 62k from a collector so its in great shape. Horrible MPG! Course I can't drive it slow either. So smooth you can't tell your flying in it.

THE best car in the world. Period. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 09/16/2012. Trim: 1992 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 600SEL sedan, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I love everything about this car. If you drive an S-Class, nothing else will do. It doesn't matter which one, as long as it's an S-Class. Everything feels expensive and gives you re-assuring clunks and thunks of a quality built product. Every switch and button feels like it will last for a hundred years. It's so incredibly exclusive, I have actually never seen another one of my cars that is the same V12 model. Nothing else even looks slightly like it. It's looks are so ageless, that people are floored when they find out the car is a 1992. Easy to work on, lots of DIY forums.
Cons: The slow-speed handling is not so great. I can barely make it around a round about at 20mph. the high speed handling is just fine. the car is fantastically easy to work on, if and only if you know what your doing. Information is becoming harder to come by as the car ages. It is difficult to find high enough octane fuel, and more difficult to find someone who can service the car. Nobody but a few shops and the dealer ship will dare service it, and the dealer will rob you blind.
Overall review: Love the S-Class. will never go for anything different.

Best luxury Car i own by fernando from Santo Domingo, DR on 05/11/2006. Trim: 1992 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 500SEL sedan, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: The vehicle is Very spacious and safe. I also own a 1999 Jaguar Vanden Plas, and a Lincoln Navigator and i like the Mercedes far better than these. It has higher handling at high speeds. Even though it measures more than 5 meters (so do the jag and the lincoln) it is easy to maneuver between traffic and on tight spots. It is easy to measure when reversing because of the Reverse Antennas that pop out at either side of the trunk and also because the rear head restraints can be lowered from the center console with the puzh of a button. The car has hydraulic Door assist so you don't have to slam the heavy doors. Windows are sound proof. A/C has an additional Carbon Filter. seats are vey bucke
Cons: No rear A/C, just a vent. Had to change the radio to Becker with a CD since its old... its a 4 speed transmission which makes it slower and less efficient.
Overall review: the car is worth whatever you're paying. If it wasn't because the engine is old and hte parts are worn and fail a bit, i'd choose it over the new ones (except the W221)
