falling apart S430

Vehicle

2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I purchased this car used and have put 70,000 miles on it in 3 years. I have replaced every moving part in the interior, the Airmatic suspension was great until it had to be replaced at 92,000 miles, the stereo went out at 101,000 miles, the front end suspension has been replaced once and due again. Beautiful at the curb, powerful drivetrain, poor reliability. Last time I buy a MB. Going back to Lexus. Drove an 1989, put zero into major repairs on it.

Favorite Features

style, smooth power

Suggested Improvements

too late for that, but, for a $77,000 sticker, it should have parts that hold up to highway driving! NAV system and lack of auxiliary inputs is sad.
