Looks Good but Wears Poorly
By rsalinger on


2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan


I just traded my 2000 S500. During the
60,000 miles I drove it, it suffered
from too many expensive defects for me
to recommend the car. I had the fuel
tank pulled at 14000 miles, the
computer replaced at 40000 miles, the
mass air flow censor at 60000 miles and
the entire steering system - rack, pump
etc at 50000 miles. All in all too many

Best Features

Best sound system in any car. Very quiet and comfortable on long trips. I drove it cross country twice. Powerful enough to keep you out of trouble. Good dealer service, but very expensive.

Worst Features

Navigation system needs MUCH better maps and needs to be DVD. You can't drive cross country, it's only useful locally. The cellular phone is way overpriced and no one offers a national plan so you pay and pay here too. Eats tires - 5 sets in 75000 miles is just too much.
