No quality control at Mercedes!
By Slackdaddy on
Vehicle2004 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S55 AMG 4dr Sedan (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)
ReviewThis car zooms. Very responsive handling and comfortable. I wish I drove it as much as the service manager at the shop I bought it from! This car has been in the shop 5 times since I bought it. Each time it was for a system failure. The pump that inflates the bladders in the dynamic drive seats failed. The active suspention failed, The throttle regulator failed and the multi-disc CD player had to be replaced. Although the service department was very helpful, I am disturbed that so many things have gone wrong with such an EXPENSIVE car. The Mercedes people tell me to expect such breakdowns as this is a very sophisticated car that has many complex systems. I should have got the Audi A8
Best FeaturesDynamic drive seats, Performance, leg room,
Worst FeaturesThe manufacturer has to get it together and put a finished product on the street. You cannot expect people to be loyal to your product if you put out a damaged good and make excuses for why it is damaged. I will not buy another Mercedes Benz until that time.
