2012 W221 S Class
"45K miles, 8 years old and NOT a single repair to date. Regular maintenance thru dealer is a bit pricey but their knowledge and care is exemplary. Active multi contour seats are the best I’ve found in any car! Long drives are a pleasure, ride comfort is exceptional! Test driven many brands, nothing comes close! Safety features are excellent. "

Seat comfort, massage, heat and cool function, quiet smooth ride and handling..really connected to roadway! Exceptional leather. The wood steering wheel is a piece of artwork. Voice control, navigation and interface really help keep driver focus. Occasional wood trim rattles.
Exterior

Beautiful paint, classic lines, large tail lights. Quiet wiper function. handsome, understated car, distinctive not flashy or over designed like some of the Asian cars.
Performance

Great ride, handling, powerful engine, quick acceleration for a large sedan. Large sedan can be a bit tricky in small parking lots. 4matic is exceptional on wet or icy pavement. The car is 8 years old and still feels like new!

Gas mileage in stop and go traffic is low. Highway driving is fine. Maintenance is pricey but the Benz dealership has a great staff who really know this car! The expense is worth it tho...there is nothing like the S Class.

S550 The Perfect Combo!
"This is my second full size "S" Class Mercedes, and the best one yet! Aside from its striking appearance, the level of interior appointments and comfort are unsurpassed by any luxury car I have ever driven. This coupled with the Twin Turbo 430 HP engine is UNREAL. A TRUE pleasure to drive!! And YES, repairs can be expensive when necessary. But in the end like everything, you get what you pay for. Style, Comfort and Acceleration when needed!!!"

MPH = Reasonable for a large powerful car. As long as you're not smoking the tires constantly to beat those Vettes at the light! Standard Routine Maintenance = Reasonable Major Electrical/Mechanical Repairs = BIG Pay Day Loan! or $$$$
