Jaison's review of 2000 S430

2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan


This car is an escape of daily life.
The Airmatic suspension provides a
cloudlike ride over bumps and open
highways. Having owned a 2000 S430, I
have taken many long trips
comfortably. However, seats are rock
hard but durable for daily use. The
S500 has softer Nappa seats (my
choice). COMMAND occasionally gives
incorrect directions but provides
sense of security driving in an
unknown area. Bose 10 speaker system
provides deep, rich sound. This is a
car anyone can enjoy. I've enjoyed
this car and will purchase again. Must
have options: Xenon lights, cd-
changer, Parktronic. Nice options to
have: rear sunshade, reclining rear
seats, multi-contour seats.

Best Features

Airmatic suspension, COMMAND system, TeleAid, automatic lowering of suspension at high speeds more improved handling & fuel economy, excellent fuel economy, deep rich torque curve & abundant horsepower, agile

Worst Features

more supple leather seats, improved reliability of COMMAND system, improved build quality
