They Call it Misery
By Benz Boy on


2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan


Beautiful car in design. That's where the enjoyment ceases. This car is like a beautiful woman with a bad personality and poor morals. Great to look at, but once you touch it your wallet and health go south. Mercedes knew this car was a piece of trash when they built it. My car has 64,548 miles and it has managed to go through two A/C systems, CD player, window electrical problems, brakes, transmission replacement and so forth. It's fun to drive when it finally runs, but it's best to keep a good wrecker service on call at all times. Mercedes lied to their customer base and myself about this car. I will never drive another one unless it's a vintage 560 sel or 560 sl.

Best Features

When it's not in the shop.

Worst Features

Send the car to Lexus Corporation and have them get a good laugh about their so called competitor .
