A glorious indulgence
Nothing. Covered by 2 year Starmarque warranty anyway.
A magnificent vehicle. The most comfortable and elegant car it has been my pleasure to drive.
Handling is sound, but would benefit from larger wheels.
This is the 3.2 litre engine. It is a willing worker and really kicks in over about 3500 rpm, but is a bit sluggish down low. This is a big, heavy car and could probably do with the V8.
Cost of parts is incredibly expensive. A Benz dealer quoted $220 for a set of windscreen wipers and $1000 for a set of brake pads. Plus labour.
The S class is an expensive proposition, but worth every cent in my view. I always look forward to driving it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
