A really solid Mercedes

The mid-90's S class is a different car than anything Mercedes has created since. It is "tank-like", meaning it is obviously massive when you drive it, and purposeful. It is not a fluffy land-yacht, and the handling automatically varies from freeway soft to backroad taut with an actively controlled suspension. The v-8 in the S500 is really enjoyable, smooth, powerful, good low end torque, high revving and powerful, yet relatively lightly loaded and long lasting. And it is spacious inside! After decades of driving little cars, it is a revelation to sit in a W140 Mercedes... the headroom, shoulder room, leg room, is fantastic. The fuel mileage is... not much different from that of a pickup. Nothing is perfect, but if you can buy one of these for $6k and put 100k miles on it... the fuel bill is not going to be much of an issue.

Safest Car I've ever owned

I was driving my S350D this winter when I hit a patch of black ice and went through a telephone pole at 60 miles an hour. I had 2 passengers with me, and none of us had our seatbelts on. All 3 of us walked away without a scratch. That car saved our lives, it felt like going into a patch of sand. Mercedes Benz spent over 1 billion developing this model, and I truly believe that it is the safest car in the world. Thats why I bought another one, and will always provide these cars to the people I love. you can't put a price on a persons life.

shopping for this car was exhaustive but totally worth the effort, I probablly spent 2 months, making phone calls on 12 different cars, and test driving at least 6. they are hard to find in truly good condition. if any maintenence at all was skipped many problems can arise, like any other car they can be easily covered up for a short time. I have driven the car for 10 weeks now, and not a single problem. things to check before you buy are shocks, make shure they are factory, it is such a heavy car, cheap replacements will make it ride okay, but wear out real fast, brakes can also wear down real fast if not replaced with genuine merc. brakes. make shure all parts are geunuine merc. look for the symbol it is on everything. also since people can buy them cheap, and maintenence is expensive I.E. $200 oil change don't just take their word for it, ask for records, otherwise can run great for a little while, and then cost a fortune. If well maintained can run great forever. but overall I am thrilled I'm 6'8" tall fits me perfect drive a mix of highway, city, worst I've gotteng was 18.2 mpg best was 19.4 thats over 10 tanks so far.

my first impression of veh was the big aquarium windows and ther sleek look of it also found this car is better running than any car i had so far and its agile quiet and comfort sound system unheard of for a factory with 12 speaker system i love it on the highway no comparsion to the newer modles these car were made for kings and queens so if you can get a good and clean one its worth every penny i will say make sure you get one with maitenance work done to it i had alot of maintenance done to it car runs so quiet i wish somehow merceds would go back to these models very impressed.....
