2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
Review
This car has been a huge disappointment. The car has had problems since day one. It continues to have problems on a regular basis. Command Center failures for the first 18 months, radio, phone, airmatic pump,faulty warning indicators, steering three times, battery discharge (4 visits to fix correctly), both front windows quit working,numerous trim and molding problems, numerous electrical problems. This is not what I expected from MBZ. This is clearly the most expensive car and the worst performing car I have ever owned. Dealer also struggles to get repairs right the first time. Seems too sophisticated for their mechanics.
Favorite Features
Nice looking car. Nice ride when it is not in the shop.
Suggested Improvements
Too numerous to list. See my review for all the improvements necessary. MBZ should be totally imbarrassed selling a car of this poor quality. Mine is not the only one. Every time we go to the dealer, there is a line of S430's with similar problems
