Looks Good but Wears Poorly

ReviewI just traded my 2000 S500. During the 60,000 miles I drove it, it suffered from too many expensive defects for me to recommend the car. I had the fuel tank pulled at 14000 miles, the computer replaced at 40000 miles, the mass air flow censor at 60000 miles and the entire steering system - rack, pump etc at 50000 miles. All in all too many repairs.
Best FeaturesBest sound system in any car. Very quiet and comfortable on long trips. I drove it cross country twice. Powerful enough to keep you out of trouble. Good dealer service, but very expensive.
Worst FeaturesNavigation system needs MUCH better maps and needs to be DVD. You can't drive cross country, it's only useful locally. The cellular phone is way overpriced and no one offers a national plan so you pay and pay here too. Eats tires - 5 sets in 75000 miles is just too much.
