Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 2d Auto (1993/L) - Owner Review

It is a ludicrous vehicle I am not sure anything is really very practical about it. it uses fuel like there is no tomrrow - 15mpg. The boot is huge. loads of leg room in it for me - I'm 1.92m tall. Huge grin factor driving it around it is awesome.

Probably just osi cold say i did it! it is not fruggle or cheap to run but it is an amazing car and i dont regret buying it.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Super smooth. very powerful and fast. superb driving feel to it. But it is heavy and is prone to wallowing a bit at times.

What's it like to park?
Bit of a monster big car not easy to find spaces sometimes but once you get used to its size its fine.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes. Expensive suspension issues with rear hydraulic strut - very expensive and accumulators to change. Also had front spring break so had to have both changed. In addtion had an engine stumble and this required some work with inlet manifolds - exspensive to repair and no mistake!

What's most practical about your car?
It is a ludicrous vehicle I am not sure anything is really very practical about it. it uses fuel like there is no tomrrow - 15mpg. The boot is huge. loads of leg room in it for me - I'm 1.92m tall. Huge grin factor driving it around it is awesome.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Love the following: retractable seatbelt gadget after it presents you with the seatbelt. rear window blinds, rear headrest go up and down eletrically. The engine is amazing! the bonnet goes vertically to give you amazing access to work in the engine bay.
