Nothing rides like an S-Class
The ac has to be converted to the new more enviromentaly safe system. The heat did not work, so I replaced the thermostat.
I have driven or ridden in many different models of luxury vehicles. The Mercedes Benz S class is like no other. It is in a class all unto itself. My 300 SEL glides down the road with ease. If needed simply press on the accelerator and the power just kicks in. There is an obscene amount of leg room for both driver and passenger. The dashboard styling with the burl wood and the leather seats lend to a beautiful appearance.
Repair costs are high. If you intend on working on this type of car on your own, be sure to torque to the exact specifications.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
