My second S550
December 24, 2018
I LOVE this car. I had a 2013 which was an excellent car. In fact there were a few things that I actually preferred on the 2013, but this car is beautiful. The design of both the exterior and interior make it seem larger than my 2013, although the overall dimension are basically the same. The one thing that really disappoints me, is that you would think a $114,000 car would have 12v access points for cell phone chargers, etc. There is one, the cigarette lighter one, which isn't accessible without opening the ashtray and then it hangs over where the cupholders are. There is a 115v outlet in the rear that you can use a home charger in but no 12v points in the back at all. The reason only gave it 3 stars for value for the money is that there is steep depreciation on these cars, and there is limited demand for used ones once they are out of warranty, because repairs are ridiculously expensive. That being said, I'm still glad I bought the car and it certainly is a head turner. Mine is black with black interior and it is gorgeous. The 2013 I had had the sport package and still had chrome down the side. The 2016 with the sport package doesn't have any side chrome, so I opted to go without the sport package this time just because I think the chrome makes the car look classier. I'm looking forward to lots of very comfortable miles in this car.
