certainly , if you read the origional forbes article , you will find this caveat :
We should note that the Mercedes S550 is the only vehicle that qualified for our list because of a high cost of ownership, low fuel efficiency and
a low rating for overall value, not because of any problems with reliability, safety or performance, which affected every other vehicle in the top 10.
though having said that - it still looks like a poor hatchet job on mercedes
and ignores the blisteringly obvious fact that people who can afford to buy a new s-class , do not even blink at the ammount and cost of fuel it uses
lastly - i want to know what a " low rating for over all value " really means
mercs have good residual value - and i am curious to know how the flagship BMWs , audis , jaguars , etc escape exactly the same alledged " faults "
as the merc
let alone ` supercars `
