I bought my s500 with 182,000 miles on it and quickly added 10,000 miles within a month. this is a great solid car. i bought it with a few problems but once i gave it a tune up(new starter,spark plugs, oil change to ROYAL PURPLE and spark plug wires) this car ran smoother than a baby's bottom. I drove up and down i95 in and out of town with no problem. A 30 min trip on this car feels like a 10 min trip especially on the open road my foot always seems to sink into the pedal and i end up doing 100+ mph without noticing at all! lol. GREAT CAR! I bought it and invested a few dollars and sold it 10,000 miles later because GAS was to much! a v12 using Diesel would of been cheaper!

Love the car. It's like driving a fast, well handling, exceedingly comfortable tank. Mine has not had any problems, but I bought it with 50K miles on it and it had a complete service log showing that all maintenance had been done. These cars have two flaws: The a/c evaporator can go out, and it is a $4K, dash out job to replace it, and the engine wiring harness can deteriorate, which is a $1,500 job to replace. Make sure the car you're buying has had these two repairs done to it and you will be fine.

While a little big to run around town
with it makes up for it on the road.
We recently drove from Naples, Florida
to New Jersey in 2 days and most
people take 3. It is so comfortable
and easy to handle that you hardly
know you are doing 75mph and higher.I
have had the car a year now and have
only had a few bulbs replaced and the

I bought the car with approx 87,000
miles on it believing that it was a
quality car that would hold a
reasonable value. In the two and a half
years that I had it, it cost over
$6,000.00 in repairs and had to be
towed back to the dealer twice. I would
not recomend buying a Mercedes of any
type unless there was a full warrantee
on the car. Do not expect to get any
thing for it on a trade. When the car
runs it can appear to be a great car,
but be sure to have a lot off money in
the bank if you buy one used.
Especially if the warrantee has run
out. I sold it with 122,000 miles on
