1998 Benz S-320 by DrBot on 06/20/2011. Trim: 1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320, Owned 7 years.
Pros: This is an excellent ride. I've had it for almost 7 years now and never had any issues with it. Its runs very smooth and still has the luxury feel when driving it
Cons: The major con I have is the fuel mileage. It's a gas guzzler if you have poor driving habits.
Overall review: High Quality German Engineering

World Class by Larry from Texas on 11/21/2006. Trim: 1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S320, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I'm 6'2", 260 lbs, the interior compartment is very roomy and comfortable, in the city or the interstate. Smooth effortless handling. Semi-limo feel. The acceleration is all I'll ever need. Very fluid at 100 plus mph. It will respond .
Cons: What cons? Its a Mercedes Benz. A World Class Motorcoach.
Overall review: I purchased my 1998 S320 with 67000 miles on it and I can easily say, I have arrived. Gas milage? I enjoy buying gas since I average 400 to 450 miles per tank. Remenber, if its S Class, its World Class.

1998 S420 Mac Daddy Benz by MBMan from St Pete Florida on 07/31/2004. Trim: 1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S420, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Feels extremely safe while driving. This is a stand out car, you don't see very many on the road. People take notice to this car. I love the way it drives, handles, everything is good with this car.
Cons: Repair costs are huge, but I bought a starmarked Benz and purchased an additional 2 years so I have 3 years or 45K miles. It's all good. Just get a warranty!!!!
Overall review: This is my second S-Class, previously had a 1993 300SE in Black/Tan. Beautiful car, got tons of compliments but lots of work to keep a black car clean. My 1998 S420 is in Silver and it's much easier to keep clean. All in all this is a great car if you can afford it.

The only car... PERIOD by The ONE from UT on 03/04/2004. Trim: 1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500, Owned 4 years.
Pros: It is a Mercedes Benz. On the road there is no other car like it. Still command respect. If you can find one with less than 50 000 miles it will cost you the same as 2001 S class. Need to say more? It is better car that the new S class. Everybody who got one will agree. Even Mercedes dealers say so. It is much more solid car that the new version.
Cons: Cons....... Mercedes don't make them anymore
Overall review: Well… it is better car than the new S class, PERIOD ! The old one (W140) was the only Mercedes that never made a profit as per Mercedes Benz themselves. The car was build to show the world what is the ULTIMATE car. If you have a chance to go to Germany you will find that there is thousands of W140 with more than 400 000 miles (600 000 km) on the clock and they just keep going on and on and on. There is many people out there that would say that the car is too big or that the MPG is only 16/18 MPG in town. Hey what is wrong with you??? You are driving TRUKS, you jack them up, you put 24’ wheels on them and you are talking big??? Get a life. Just go to your local Lexus dealer and look on LS430, go on have a look. So??? If you cover the headlights it is the same as W140, need to say more? All around the world every car maker wants to be MERCEDES. Fortunately the only one can be, and the best one is W140.

Don't leave home in anything else! by wolfie on 03/26/2003. Trim: 1998 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S420, Owned 5 years.
Pros: I like the comfort-really easy to sit for long periods if required. The seats can be put into almost any configuration, even to lengthening the seat for support for long legs. The driving is the easiest , the feeling of security is the greatest and the luxury is apparent with good taste. The response is instant when braking or turning . No getting seasick when having to stop suddenly by rocking back and forth. It is sprung firmly. This is one hell of a good car- can't say enough about Mercedes cars! Been driving them since 1981!!!!
Cons: Can't think of any negatives.
Overall review: Great car. Love this car! Will buy another one if the market ever goes up again!!
