2007 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
First week: Brakes squeal, wobble in steering wheel at 65 mph, mirrors won't adjust downward in reverse and Parktronic starts blaring in traffic. Dealer fixes brakes, Parktronic, replaces four tires, re-aligns. Second week: Steering still wobbles - dealer says balance is off - must have thrown a weight. Third week: Steering still wobbles. Dealer spends 4 days working on problem. Day due to be delivered, dealer says Mercedes issues service bulletin re: problem with bushings and control arms in front (this sounds like suspension which is what I have been telling them from day 1). Replaced control arms and bushings. Now passenger seat quits adjusting to turns, et. Drives perfect now.
Exterior design. Gobs of torque. Whisper quiet. Great sound system.
Put a dc outlet in the console. Bluetooth compatability and IPod integration should have come with car for $104,000. Should not have to pay $1300 to have these installed. Shameless ripoff on these items.
