Mercedes really messed up!
By berncurio21 on


2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 4dr Sedan (5.0L 8cyl 5A)


All throughout my life, my family has only owned MB cars. I grew up around them so I know about their great ride, fantastic style and reliability. My first car was a C230 and I got an SLK after that. I traded in for a 2002 S500 sports package and it was the biggest mistake. four days after I drove it out the lot, the air suspension dropped so the car was sitting on its tires and had to be towed and the repair alone cost $1400. After that repair, the brakes had to be replaced for another $900, two weeks after, my HID headlamps went out which costs another 500 bucks. In addition, the alternator started to act up at 70k miles and costs $900 to replace. The biggest disappointment!

Best Features

Great engine. High speed handling. Ride quality. Prestige and class. Sexy exterior look, fantastic leg room.

Worst Features

Everything. I don't intend to pay so much money for a Chrysler!
