Most relible and stylish car I have ever owned

by sports car lover from Laguna Calif on Sun Oct 15 2017

Mercedes S class is the most comfortable smooth ride of them all. The older ones were hand built. They are very heavy and safe.

If you feel that way, stop reading right here.

Why? No words can possibly describe the sheer joy involved in driving suchan extravagant piece of automotive machinery as the Mercedes SL500. This is adream machine, an automobile that evokes envious glances and long stares. Itmakes one an instant celebrity of sorts. Certainly, you'll appreciate -- orbecome appalled -- as people wave at you, shout at you, and offer themselvesas a passenger.
