Looks and feels good and very comfortable.

Great car amazing performance very comfortable. Easy to drive and the wheel is flexible and easy to turn and U-turn. Backup camera and adjustable mirrors makes it easy to park. It is very safe and easy to drive. I recommend to everyone. It is the most driver friendly car I have ever owned.

The best: Mercedes s-class.

The Mercedes s-class is the finest vehicle I have ever driven. It also has the most comfortable. Ride. The turn radius is less than a Mazda Miata; allowing you to maneuver in smaller spaces. It is very quiet, which allows for better listening to the Bose sound system.

- James E

It is super stylish. The ride is smooth and it picks up speed quickly.

Our vehicle is great. It rides very smooth. It picks up speed quickly. The radio system is awesome. It is very spacious. We love the seat functions; warm/cool, high/low, etc. The lighting is great. The shade for the back window is a definite plus.
