Well You Would Have To Look It Over And Test Drive It, It Out Does The S Class Benz And Its Only $60,000.00 NOT $128,000.00 :D
Also It Already Come With Everything No Add Ons Needed :)
Also 10 Year 100,000 Mile Warranty :bowdown:

P.S. The Benz Dealer Ripped Me Off For The Last Time

Outside it looks like all the rest, but Hyundai is supposed to be nearly as good quality as Jap cars.
Personally, I'd spring for an Infinity.
Try buying parts for the Infinity and you would change your mind fast.

It's has a lotsa gadget to play with,but when sit inside and pay attention to the quality details (Maybe who cares but I do !!): It's Asian feeling on the layout,tap hard on doors & head liner panels, all seat leather stitches and tug-in,Birch wood panels, carpet and so on it's not even come close to Euro quality like VW Touareg alone..not test drive yet .Nah I'm back to CLS:eclipsee_steering:

there's a reason why there are thousands of MB's on the road after 100k or even 200k and you rarely see high mileage Hyundais

That from a Benz owner on a Benz board???:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

If the quality is similar to my '06 LL Bean Outback 3.0, and the 3 Legacy/Outbacks I had before, you wouldn't need many parts, if any. Everything I've read rates the I higher.

The high-mileage MBs you see are older models. Them days are fading away along with MB's quality.
Don't know about Hyundai, but it's supposed to have improved recently.

The older Hyundai were cheapies (like the one driven by Rodney King). The high end Hyundai are only available a few years ago and the quality has been good. Can reasonably expect them (just like Lexus) to out last newer MBs

Would never have imagined this when the company first came out. I think I will pass for now.

I see it in the lines of GM/Cadillac, Ford/Lincoln, Toyota/Lexus, Honda/Acura except they didn't name it differently. Add a few things and rack up the price. Not really what they deliver or are known for.

But, we will see how the market reacts. Interesting move on their part in these economic times. Maybe they see an opportunity to take the people who can't quite afford an MB when the belt is tightened. (not saying you HarleyJoe, just the buying public in general)

I do like the Maybach back seat, but since I am single and behind the wheel it would be useless.... OOOhhhhhhh, WAIT!!! But if it were parked and because I am single.... Hmmmmm, new ideas! LOL

AMEN RKH:

I Also Have A 04 Hyundai XG 350 It's The Wife's Car To Date My Her Repair Bill Has Been $0.00 In 6 Years I Just Replaced The Fan belt And Did It Myself $12.00 :thumbsup:

My S 500 And My SL 500 Has Been Tru The Roof ,, There Taking Me To The Poor House And "FAST" To, For Parts And Dealer Service

So On That Note I Will Be Looking At The 2011 EQUUS.

The Only Good Benz I Had Was My 1986 420 SEL And My 1989 300 SEL
But They Was Hand Made , Not Any More, Benz Is Just Like Every Other Car Out There I Think Over Priced And Over Rated.
Maybe Benz Lost It When It Went To Robot Made And Put The Chrysler Name On It.

P. S. Benz Should Be Looking At The EQUUS And Follow Them, Just My Opinion

I Do Understand :D Tell Me Who Is Not Coping Who Any More ?

But My 2 Benz's Will Take Me To The Poor House :mad:
Dealer Service And DIY Parts And On That Note I Am 100% Right
My Dealer Gets $145.00 Per Hour That To Me Is A Rip Off , When i Went Lst Week The Mechanic Was Working On One Of My Front Brake Lines With A Craftman Line Wrench WTF Then Used Vice Grips And Ruined The Fitting And Never Got It Off ,, That Took 4 Hours To Tell Me He Could Not Get It Loss
I Told The Writer To Just Give Me Back My F&&ing Car, Ans Said Goodbye
That Wasv All Bull S&&IT To Me ,, I'LL Do It Myself, On The Survey I Gave The Writer a 10 The Mechanic I Gave A Big O,
Ad Not Only He Could Not Get The Line Free The AO Was On His Cell Phone For About 2 Hours Of MY TIME, That Just Pissed Me Off.
I Went To The MGR And Told Him To Fire That Mechnic That Is Is A Big Big O In My Book

Hyundais are garbage! Take a look at every car they make! its clear they simply park a benz or lexus in a garage and then steal every little design que they possiblly can!

Not only that, spending big bucks on a car has nothing to do with reliability or safety or any of that, do people wear a rolex because it tells time any better then a seiko? It will take a world war and a complete re fresh of the human mind before any rich folks buy these, even worse they buy one for there son or daughter, imagine how upset they would be>...
