How are the new S Class Kars Doing?

Do the new S Klass Kars seem to be better than the previous generation? The wheel wells are ugly, but how do the kars hold up? Are they still using plastic parts in the radiator and cooling system like
the ones that used to brake for me? Do the little things like motor mounts and steering shock absorbers hold up better? How about the electronics? And how hard is it to get used to the computerized driving thingy? Just wondering - it may be worth it to go to another town and buy one and then take it to ole seaky sam for service. Are the waranties being honored?

Sounds like McBrue's having Mercedes remorse after buying a Lexus.
McBrue misses the red meat! Nothing to complain about except uncertain Lexus shifting and meek, boring, committee consensus, styling.

mcbrue! what has happened to make you even consider such a thing! is your sense of humor rusting? has the plastic on your computer thingie broken off? are the seat mounts on you desk chair collapsing?

Hate to think of leaving Lexus - the brand that does not support its warranty and is engineered for show, not go. The Lexus does not leave you stranded on the side of the road the way the Mercedes does. But I only lost about a couple of weeks a year to car repair with the Mercedes, so if I buy a small Neon for the trunk ... Thus the questions about the S Klass Kars.

ANSWER IS IN !!!!! Went down to the library over the weekend - er - Barnes & Noble - and the Consumer Reports magazine compared luxury vehicles. They rated the LS470L as the best buy, the one to get. Of course the reliability of the two was radicaly different - from half red for the Kudzu car to half black for the Kraut Kar. Black or half black is bad. So ole Heavy Karl is still expecting to get rich from the daily or weekly visits to his stealership from all the proud new S Klass kar owners ! DRAT !!!!!! When will they learn how to produce a reliable car? The magazine did point out there is not much excitement in the LS. Too bad they missed the point that the Jap car is just a cheap copy of the Kraut car but lacks the engineering that makes the Kraut car work. Oh well ... S Class not ready for prime time yet, I guess.

Take the jump and get the twin turbo S class. Who give a damn if the car needs a bit of service? It would be a fair trade for the performance fun factor.
