2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan S430 4MATIC AWD 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I will be taking her home on Monday. The car has 29,000 miles on it and all I can say after all the crap my family has gone through for 7 years, this car is a blessing. My we enjoy it in good health and may the car always come though for us. So far it is crazy awesome. Previous cars I have owned new were: 1994 300ZX 2 seater with T-Tops, 2001 Audi A6Q 3.2 , 2006 Audi A6Q 3.2, 2009 BMW 328XI. This will be the first time I have bought a used vehicle in 18 years. So far so good, will follow up with real review as I drive it more.... :)


Favorite Features

The cockpit is simply awesome.... the stately drive.... unmistakably MB.


Suggested Improvements

Better mpg maybe...

Review

I've had the S430 4matic for nine months now and with only 31,000 miles on the odometer, I have been to the service department 31 times for various mechanical and electrical problems during that nine months. Merecedes has lost its glory, as a German national told me, pleople in Germany prefer Japanese Cars. After my last two Mercedes (both were defective), I'm giving Lexus a try, "Hello LS 460"

The Mercedes is a great car with great handling and will always be a favorite too many people. I love my Benz and it is at the top of it's class.

Review

Have owned the S430 - 4matic for about 5 months. Had to send it back to the dealership twice - several days at a time - for warranty defects. Expecting more trips to the workshop as problems have not gone away. The car runs smoothly but performance is not exceptional. Everytime I pass a Lexus LS or BMW 745, I question my purchase.


Favorite Features

Interior & Presafe


Suggested Improvements

Reliability and better qualified service technicians.
