2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan

Review

We purchased this vehicle in 2003 with 19,000 miles with the intention of keeping it for 10 years. It was in the Mercedes certified used car program. In the 8 months we owned the vehicle, it was in the shop 5 times for a wide variety of reasons, including a failed instrument cluster, windshield washer tank failure, numerous electrical issues and repeated "Check Engine" alerts. I cannot express how disappointed we have been with this Mercedes-Benz. This was the worst vehicle I have ever owned. Buyers beware -- this is not your father's Mercedes; it's a disgustingly expensive vehicle that does not live up to the Mercedes brand and reputation.

Favorite Features

Seat controls, handling, quiet ride.

Suggested Improvements

Overall quality control needs to be improved. It reminds me of Chrysler products in the 1970's.
