I've had 6 different Mercedes cars including new, this is my first "S" Class. I've been chasing a phantom ASR issue with this car since day one. Very high service costs, even at an independent and brutally bad gas mileage (<12) make this car better suited for the demo derby.

Bought it used from a dealer with 35,000 miles. I've been happy with the thing since we started. Keep V rated tires on it for intended performance. Now it cost about $2,000/yr in maintenance, but that's cheaper than a new one. The power is great and handling supurb.
