- very comfortable, very fast
- bad fuel economy, TERRIBLE RELIABILITY, wish MB didn't redesign the S class
About 8 months ago, I purchased the Mercedes Benz S550 4 MATIC hoping that it would be a 300,000 mile car. WRONG! It has been in the shop three times. I have had to replace the transmission, brake fluid, and a bad battery. I foolishly purchased this car without reading Mercedes Benz reviews of the last 5 years. I did some research and found that the much sleeker, nicer looking, and more refined Lexus LS 460 is the most reliable car on the road. Period. I took a test drive of the LS 460 after some careful consideration of some other fine cars. I have never driven a car as smooth, comfortable, and intuitive as this, and it comes at a much cheaper price than the Mercedes. The car is packed with 380 HP compared to the Mercede's near-equivelant 382 HP and both cars go from 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. However, compared to the measely 15/22 mpg the MB gets, the LS 460 gets 19/27! The LS 460 purchase is the best decision of my life and I have no regrets! All around better car.
