- It's a comfortable ride.
- Poorly designed fenders suffer from paint/body damage.
I am the owner of a 2008 MBZ S550. I have "standard" tires. All four tires extend about 4-5 centimeters beyond the curvature of the fender at the rear of each tire. This is a significantly greater extension compared to MBZ we have owned. Because the tires extend beyond the angle of the fenders, these areas are more prone to the impact of dirt and road debris making the lower aspect of the fenders more subject to deterioration from road hazard material creating dents, scratches in the paint. I have unanswered letters to various MBZ executives....read morehide

- very comfortable, quiet, luxury to the max
- fuel economy, the gas pedal is too rough and making driving very tiring.
The comfort and luxury of the car is excellent. i have had this car for a while and I enjoy the comfort of it especially in long trips. It is very quiet and the most of my friends fight about sitting in the backseat.
In stop and go trips there is a different story. The gas pedal is too rough and makes driving in stop and go very painful. I wish MBZ would do something about this problem. I use my cruise control even in the short distances since it is easier than using the gas pedal. The fuel economy is trouble. I work very close to my home and I end up spending $80/week for fuel. I guess one might think that with having a luxury car like this no one should complain about the fuel economy. My previous car SL500 was a lot more efficient but it was also not as heavy and comfortable as this one....read morehide

- I find it is the best of the 500's I have owned. Most quiet, solid car ever. Even the gas milage.
- None so far. disapointed I could not get active seats and auto side shades.
I have a Lexus 430 and we both agree this car rides and handles better. The command system is even easier to operate. Don't have to stop to enter information. Voice command is way ahead. Heads turn when we go by.

- Everything about it
I love everything about this car. How it drives the feeling of the road, how precise the breaks are the seats with premium leather feels great, very comfortable. The navigations it has improved a lot from before and stills needs some work, but I didn�t buy the car for the navigation. The sound system blows the sound system on the lexus LS460L.
The styling of the car is phenomenal, you can see when its coming that it is a Mercedes Benz S Class, unlike lexus, you don�t know if it is a LS460 or a Camry.
I love it even more after having for 19,877 miles with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Oh and as far as the gas mileage its actually great, but for those who complain about it buy yourself a Hybrid for around $20,000 ....read morehide
