Drives like a dream, feels like a cloud!

2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4.3L

I love my Mercedes Benz s class for many reasons. It is very roomy in the front and back seats, especially for a sedan. The ride is incredibly smooth; it literally feels like you are driving on a cloud. Even on very bumpy roads the air suspension makes it a dream to drive on. We just recently bought this vehicle off of somebody and did get their maintenance records. This vehicle is quite expensive on upkeep. That is probably the only downside to it. There is also only 2 cup holders in the front and 1 will only fit a 12 oz can of pop. Kind of annoying for such a luxurious vehicle otherwise.
