2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)
I had nothing but problems from day 1.
While it is one of the best looking
cars out there, I had component
problems regularly. Breaks were
replaced twice inside 15,000 miles,
computer board replaced, electrical
problems, noise and loose parts
creating noise in the cabin, bas
sensors not allowing to put the car in
gear and much more... The car suffers
from many problems caused by cheap or
poor quality components used in the
build. I hope MBZ will fix their
problems for the future - for now I can
not wait to finish my lease and get
into a reliable Lexus !!!
Looks great, large, feels safe,
On the average the car goes in for
repairs every 2 months. I do have to
say that the dealer service is AAA
For anyone who wants to see the paper
records, just email me...
