2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl 5A)
I have owned this car for 6 months and have spent over $1,500 for repairs. It had 66,000 miles on it when I purchased it from a dealer and was in great shape cosmetically. For a car that cost over $100K when new and with only 70K miles on it I am very dissapointed with the quality and durability and cost to own. It is a powerful fun car to drive and I like the body style and the interior room but I am thinking strongly about trading it for a Lexus.

Build a quality car that will last. When you have the nerve to charge over $100,000 for a car build it to last!
