Black with tan interior. Sunroof included. Silver trimming.

2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4.3L

Great on the road, it cost a lot to fill the gas tank. Uses premium gas. It takes 7 gallons of oil which can run up the cost for an oil change. I love the size and the features of heated seats. It has a deep trunk and comes with all the tools equipment for changing a tire. Also has a back window shade that can be lifted on or off.
