nice daily driver

by job from KC area | August 20, 2014

bought it for the AWD and the comfort. Interior comfort features are fine, COMMAND a bit complicated until you learn the system, but OK. MPG is 26 on the highway, plenty of pickup in the S550. Easy to navigate although it is large, and the blind spot indicators are a must have. Not the most elegant style in my garage, but all in all a good car for a daily driver.

Most comfortable/roadworthy car test-driven

by Test Driver from Louisville, KY | April 30, 2014

I spent almost 2 years researching, test-driving and analyzing the luxury car market. I drove almost every "hi-end" model available in Louisville, KY. Most models offered a unique and pleasurable driving experience. The Mercedes S 550 was easily the best for my particular needs. Comfort, safety features, driver assistance packages as well as handling & ride are a great blend of luxury and sport driving. The S series just feels more substantial w/ better build quality than American and Asian luxury cars. But, you need to drive & decide for yourself.

Nice ride!

by Saudi Car Dude from nky | July 14, 2012

The S550 is a great car. Ive driven the old S500's alot and the new 550 is far superior. In 2013 they will redesign the S Class to look more like a maybach since Maybach is supposedly to be discontinued. Sadly, the Excleron is awesome. Anyways if you get a S Class get it with the AMG package if you cannot afford the S65. Trust me. just saying. Anyways peace love and hairgrease.

It's a status car

by royce787 from wisconsin | April 22, 2012

I work for a MB dealership and have always been impressed by the craftsmanship and overall luxurious feel of the mercedes s class. These cars are among the most comfortable ive driven. You sit in a c class after this and it makes it feel cheap, if anything can make a class feel cheap it has to be good. Sure you could get a bentely or a rolls royce but unless you live in LA chances are theres not a dealership close by like there is most likely a MB dealership near you. One of the things i love about the s class is the optional inflating side bolsters, as you go round a corner hard the side support will inflate and hold you in your seat but when your cruising down the freeway they wont be uncomfortably in the way. The car will also show everyone your success, it will make your friends jealous but it is subtle enough that it isn't overly cocky. If you can afford it it is an excellent option, I would recommend the s63 amg but thats just me and if you don't care about going fast the base engine will do fine.
