Great car; expensive to maintain
By Stephen on


2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan


Overall, this is a very beautiful car that is fun to drive. However, the maintenance, even routine, is very expensive at the MZB dealers. The car is fun to drive with a smooth, solid ride, and makes long trps enjoyable. Even police officers have commented on what a beautiful car it is. I have had to pat to replace the left headlamp assembly, and the locking gas cap several times. The entire driver's seat assembly, had to be flown in from Germany and replaced, but fortunately I had purchased an extended warranty. The entire steering assembly also went out. Being so heavy, the car needs frequent brake repairs, and goes through tires quite quickly. Nevertheless, I just love this car!

Best Features

Smooth ride with a very powerful, quickly accelerating engine and elegant feel make it a joy to drive. There is a lot of interior room both in front and back. The automatically closing doors are a neat feature.

Worst Features

The navigaton system, though handy, could be improved. Since my vehicle was manufactured in July, 1999, replacement navigation DVDs are not available. Turning the varius interior lights on and off can be confusing. The tank for windshield water seems to be defective.
