My Last Mercedes
By VWRattletrap on
Vehicle
1997 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S420 4dr Sedan
Review
This was the car that turned a certified car nut like myself into someone who just wants cheap transportation. I bought this car new and in the first year had over $10K of warranty work . . . I finally sold it after 12 months and bought a Volkswagen! A partial list: engine torn down to replace timing chains due to constant whine, transmission slip shifting, rattles, radio not connected at the factory, temperature sensor intermittent, damaged paint, and finally, the total arrogance of the factory zone reps!
Favorite Features
The solid nature of the car. Feeling of heft and security
Suggested Improvements
Benz has continued downhill with the build quality of the ML, C Class, and others. Can't think of anything that would bring me back to Mercedes. C/D put it quite aptly: "Anyone with wiggle room on their MasterCard can afford to get into the Benz."
