    I love my Equus - bought it new in 2014 and 6 years later still love it! It’s very smooth and soundproof 😂 the only bad thing so far when you break something it cost you more than a thousand $$ to replace it , other than that it’s a pleasure driving it every day to work 😀 - I don’t have the massage chair though 🤔 didn’t know the ultimate came with that

    This depreciated from $70k to $15k. A similarly equipped S class or 7 series would have gone from around $150k to $30k, and a Maybach would have lost several Equus in value over that same period, so I don't see any problems here. Great value and the G90 has a much better looking exterior finally.

    I have liked the Equus since the first time I saw one. I had seen it driving in the opposite direction and almost ran off the road looking at it. Then when I was in my way home saw it parked near a local diner and went in to find its owner and and get some info on the car. He was nice enough to open it up and took me for a ride. Then I definitely wanted one. But upon hearing the price immediately cancel the thought if owning one. lol But now... NOW... I might actually be able to own one. $15k you say. I'll be hunting for one now. Or maybe a Genesis if they ride as nice as the Equus. Great video. Thanks for the info and tour.

    I saw one of these at the dealer and took it home for the weekend. It was the most impressive luxury car I have been in with the most options, and yes I've been in Bentleys and Rolls Royce.

    I was so pumped when you bought this... ultimate luxury and plenty of power for the price of a new Civic. 🥂💰

    I absolutely love that car. And at 15K, it's a steal. I'm not much into some of the features, like the backseats controls or the massage items, but I like a car to be comfortable and not too big but with enough space for its passengers and luggage. I love its lines and curves, along with its semi-classic looks. I'd trade my 2012 Audi A4 for this one any day.

    I got in an Equus at a car show a few years ago. I was blown away by it. The interior put all the BMWs and Mercedes at the show to shame.

    Bought my 2015 Equus Ultimate about 4 years ago. It was in mint condition and only had 25,000 miles.

    Hello, I was introduced to the Equus during my deployment in Korea. I fell in love with this vehicle. However, in Korea they offer a limo version that has an extra 8-10 inches at the B pillar. This added bit of space makes the rear right passenger seat a bit more comfortable for even an American. Thank you for this review, but I’ll stick with the Phantom.

    Hoovie, love the channel. I'm curious whether you know if the Equus is a reliable car? I would consider getting one. But the last thing I need is to dump $2k into a new (fill in expensive car part here) three months after I buy it. Thanks.

    Oddly, my father started buying Hyundais new every two years back in the late nineties. He'd only put a few thousand miles on it and trade for another. His last one was a 2006 Azera Limited Ultra. He couldn't wait to show off all the neat little gizmos to me. In August 2008 he called me up and asked if I wanted to have it, no strings. He had bought a Toyota truck. I flew from Kansas and picked it up in NC. It was the last time I saw my dad alive. He died the next month. I still have the Azera. It's my daily driver. It only has 78K miles. Totally reliable car that changed my mind about Hyundai quality. I'll probably drive it until it fails. I purchased a 2014 Tucson for my wife. She loves it for driving around Wichita. I have loved the Genesis/Equus line since their debut. They really need an SUV.

    I remember a few months back, I was leaving a restaurant and seen one of these parked in the lot. At first, I thought it was a Mercedes and then I seen the Equus badge. As soon as I got home, I did a search on the internet and found out who made it. I was amazed. Truly a practical luxury car that offers a lot of "bang for the buck".

    You’re one of my favorites. Your style doesn’t try to be spectacular, you know the stuff and you present yourself well. Keep up the good work.

    I have a 2013 Ultimate and I have to say I love the hell out of it.


    Definetly a real nice looking car, I'm just wondering how reliable and mechanically sound they are?????

    As the owner of a 2013 Equus Ultimate, I have to say, thank you for this video. It has been a riot to show my friends.

    Probably the best car to use for Uber.

    I like both cars. The rolls looks retro. I wish Lincoln would've kept their early 1970s lincoln continental design around and modernized it
