If you’re looking for a vehicle that delivers top-of-the-line features, comfort, performance and safety, all while showing off the prestige of the driver, the 2012 Mercedes Benz S-Class is your choice.

Key Features

With Active Body Control and a noise-canceling cabin, the S-Class sedan delivers an exceptional riding experience. With agile handling and an enormous amount of standard features, even the base models afford plenty of performance and comfort. Add in the Splitview dual-screen interface that allows both the driver and the passenger to view two different things at the same time, and you have a win all the way around.

New for 2012

The 2012 Mercedes Benz S-Class receives a few upgrades, including the S550 receiving a twin-turbocharged engine for improved fuel economy and power, and the introduction of the S250 BlueTEC also adds the option of choosing diesel to the S-Class lineup.

What We Like

Besides the unmistakable elegance, the leg, head and hip room create an unbelievably comfortable ride. Throw in rear-seat audio and climate controls, a DVD entertainment system and elegant leather upholstery, and it’s easy to see why the European tradition is so thoroughly enjoyed by all who experience it.

What Concerns Us

There is little to be concerned about with the 2012 Mercedes Benz S-Class. However, if a conservative ride isn’t your style, you may want to consider a more exotic option.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
