2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 5 litre V8 from Australia and New Zealand
The best car I have ever owned
A false low pressure tyre indication, dealer rectified immediately, no questions asked.
The car's fit and finish is simply superb, everything you touch feels like quality. The seats are amazing, especially when travelling long distances. I drove this car from Melbourne to Learmonth in Western Australia, a distance of 4600km. The car was a dream to drive; first class comfort the entire way.
The refinement and smooth ride is simply unmatched by any other car; you can drive it all day, and jump ride back in and drive another 1000km.
Beyond any doubt, the last word in luxury travel, from the engine, to the amenities, to the sound system; it does everything just right and is so easy to use; they don't get an better than an S-Class.
The instrumentation is excellent, and the car just exudes bank vault like stiffness. It's outstanding on every front.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Pretty powerful claim for only two years of ownership. Those Mercedes-Benzes always start out great, but after several years and more miles, they start having problems which will be very expensive to fix. This is more apparent in the newer models, which do not have the fit and finish of their predecessors.
