2009 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
There are 4 user reviews for the S550 4MATIC trim shown below
- smooth ride
- breaks down too often
Purchased As New
This car is a seriously disappointing vehicle. Sure, it rides smoothly and handles fairly nimbly when it works, but I have experienced difficulty just getting it to start, and the 4MATIC system is very unreliable. For this much money, this is a lemon.

- Absolutely everything
- Steering can be a little iffy and the cold weather package is kind of complicated to warm the car up
Purchased As New
Without a doubt one of the most amazing cars ever to roll out of a Mercedes dealership. Drives great, extremely comfortable and roomy and performs like a dream. and the 4MATIC is amazing in the snow and I am totally comfortable driving in any weather. I have 2 young kids as well and they are totally comfortably riding in the back for hours and we can take a road trip with no problems whatsoever. Also, plenty of trunk space. The steering can be a little bit wobbly sometimes but for a car that size it drives unbelievably anyways so just a few steering issues is really nothing. The cold weather package is sometimes a pain in the neck to try and sync up all the seats to heat and to get the inside a right temperature but compared to our other cars it's really not so bad! It's also an extremely safe car, although fortunately we haven't had to see that side of it yet. As for the low reliability rating I gave it, we had a few general problems with the car as soon as we hit 40,000 miles, just problems with the engine cooling systems and the air conditioner, but they were under warranty and didn't cost us anything to repair, but it was kind of annoying having a $100,000 car not be 100% working. Anyways, overall it's an unbelievable car and I would recommend it to anybody...read morehide

- smooth ride, solid car, great look! Fun to drive on far trips!
- too expensive! I miss my Volvo 850from grad school $1400
Best car ever made, besides Volvo 240. This car is a work horse too. I hauled 100 pounds of books in it, and an oak book case too in the trunk.

- Best overall driving experience to be had. Period
- 14 MPG. But then, who cares?
There is no full size luxury sedan that can touch this car. At any price. And 4Matic makes it all the better.
