Beautiful but at a bit of a cost

2006 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4.3L

I enjoy the smooth ride of my vehicle, as well as the leather seats and the sun roof. However, it gets very hot in the summer without any type of window tint. It is also very costly to maintain. Overall, I do like my vehicle. It is beautiful and luxurious.
