All About my Car pros and cons

2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 5.5L V8

Everything is great about this car! The car rides very smoothly and has great interior design as well. The rooftop opening is amazing as well a great vibe for the summer. It has max safety bags inside. The only thing it could improve on would be the Bluetooth to connect your phone and listen to music and the car isn't the best in the snow or rain. 2 Wheeler only so be prepared!

Love my 2008? Mercedes Benz s550.

2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 5.5L V8

The comfort level is superior! Plenty of power. Luxury for sure. We haven't had any problems with this vehicle. German made is an excellent choice. Great traveling car with plenty of room. This is our 2nd Mercedes and we love it. We only use premium gas. The only feature that we do not have is bluetooth for our music. It will Bluetooth your calling features.

Comfortable and powerful.

2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 5.5L V8

Adjustable seats with massage is my favorite feature. The v8 engine has plenty of power. The turning radius is phenomenal, it can literally turn on a dime. Car has 188k miles and still feels new. No major problems just maintaining can be expensive. Would definitely look into the 4matic next time as the rear wheel drive is horrible in the snow.
