2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
There are 4 user reviews for the S600 trim shown below
- Highly sophisticated powerful s600, extreme power, excellent road handling
- Brakes, annoying noisy brakes
Purchased As Used
Excellent, comfort and performance car, V12 powerful responsive engine, big car with unbelievable handling, stick to the road, quite, excellent appearance, driver feel like a king. You can’t complain on fuel consumption when driving v12 and it is not bad at all. The only cons I find is noisy breaks, but still love the car, you just cannot find better car in the market today....read morehide

- Nav and electronic integration are horrible
Mercedes has struggled for years with difficult to use interfaces to their nav and electronics. The new S is NO improvement. The voice control is spotty and controls few things. Programming an address is very time consuming and requires more information than many drivers looking for an address actually have. It only allows address 'ranges' - you cant put in a specific address. This is a step back. I bought an Acura RL instead. They have a nav like it is supposed to be. Setting car options through the nav is also horrible. I love the look and prestige of MB, but I cant help but wonder if they cut so many corners with nav/electronics, did they do the same for the mechanics and safety systems? Since so many cars rely on electronics for most of their functions, it is not a stretch to make these comparisons. I hate to say it, but MB is starting to seem like '70s Detroit. They are on the down side unless they make changes now....read morehide

- For the money, the best car EVER built in history. You really can't ask for anything more.
- NONE, NONE, NONE. Mercedes went all the way to perfection with this one. Lexus will never catch up
The amount of power from the engine is staggering. The comfort of the car is wonderful. I love the layout of the dash and it's controls. Every feature of the vehicle has been completely worked out. Mercedes-Benz has once again established the benchmark of luxury automobiles. I really can't see how BMW, Lexus, and Bentley could ever catch up if Mercedes stays on this track....read morehide
