My sad experience with my S600!
By VML on


2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S600 4dr Sedan (5.8L 12cyl 5A)


The air conditioning had to be replaced 5 months after I bought it. The entire dashboard went out (i.e. no speedometer, no dash lights, no signal indicator lights). The engine kept running AFTER the car was turned off and the key taken out of the ignition. The hydraulic system failed leaving the car sitting 6" from the ground. Replaced battery twice in 30 months. GPS is archaic - not user friendly and half the addresses are not in the system. Have to buy add'l CD-ROMs to go all over the U.S. The mobile phone with the car is not digital and the dealer said it will cost $1,100 to upgrade to a digital phone.

Best Features

Spacious interior Rides beautifully Great acceleration

Worst Features

This car is always in the shop - even though the problems have all been fixed under warranty, the S600 needs to be more reliable. In addition, Mercedes needs to adopt the same GPS system that Lexus has and not charge extra for something that's standard with Lexus.
