high level of safety and operational features.
March 9, 2018
This review is for 2108 S 450. Good combination of comfort convenience and high level of safety features. Lot of redundant technical features and display tools. could reduce four ways to access the various features on the 2018 S 450- reduce the complexity and user friendly access to various bells and whistles. Run flat Tires : Other than the PRO of running flat for 50 miles, mayn negatives : Compared to standard tires, RFTs have no/ or low mileage warranty , more expensive, lower mileage, more fragile, lack to easy availability at tire dealers, picks up more road noise . The display on the driver side is too crowded: gears display, fuel gauge , speedometer are all bunched up together in the same area. Gear display should be clearly visible , all by itself in the middle of 12 inch display. Even the gear shift arm can be improved : Reverse(R) should be down ( backward) movement, and Drive (D) should be up ( forward ) movement of the gear shift arm. The buttons for garage door opener are hardly visible, located at the downward facing thin edge of rear view mirror. Button for shades for the back glass window is totally hidden behind the steering wheel. I am sure there are plenty of places for relocating these invisible buttons.
