2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan S550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


I have been a long time driver of German makes. From BMWs to Mercedes, I have owned over 6 German made cars. I have never been more disappointed in the quality and reliability. Most recently, my 2011 S-Class Mercedes. Although new with 8,900 miles, I have been back to the dealer 5 times for A/C malfunction, check-engine light, GPS malfunction and much more. No matter how polite the service department may be, this is the last German car I will ever purchase again. I am disappointed as I will miss the exceptional performance but I do not have the time nor patience to keep bringing back my German cars to the dealer. My wife has a Lexus 460 with over 48K with absolute "zero" problems...

Best Features

Great acceleration, handling and interior/exterior design.

Worst Features

Mercedes-Benz perhaps need to learn a lesson from the Japanese. They do not compromise quality over performance. This is the same disappointment I have had with my previous BMW 7-series. 56K miles and numerous trips to the dealer. Poor reliability. Not worth the money and time.
