The 2004 S430 is not worth the money.
We have had problems that have never
been corrected since the day we took
delivery. There is always a problem
that can never be fixed, nor does
Mercedes care to solve the problems.
We are even told that the battery
cannot support all the electronics in
the car, so if you go on vacation, you
better buy a voltage charger or assume
your electronics won't work when you
get back! Moreover, Mercedes doesn't
care about this or any other problem
they know exists!
