7 Years and no troubles
By Spoiled Rich Boy on


2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


I adore my Mercedes. Bought it late 2001 till now, 2008, 7 years and the biggest thing done to it are new tires, besides that, completely reliable! It was a S430V (apparently according to the salesman it's better in some ways) with some lovely upgrades (bi-xenon headlights & washers, Nappa leather, wood & leather steering wheel and shift gate). The transmission is still silky smooth, and the air suspension has not failed once. The engine is not the most powerful but still quite nippy. In general; reliable, comfortable, and I absolutely adore it. Merc's dealer network is very friendly and helpful (at least at my dealer), but they charge you for every single little thing!

Best Features

Wonderful to drive. Comfy inside. Very reliable

Worst Features

"V" Model costs more than the normal with few included upgrades. Small satnav screen. Limited satnav locations
