2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 4dr Sedan (4.3L 8cyl 5A)


Magnificent car in every respect except
reliability!! The vehicle was delivered
to me with no refrigerant in the air
conditioning system. It required
service to charge the system within the
first week of ownership. No leaks were
detected by the service technician.
Seven weeks later the AC failed again.
The system maintained the charge, but
another component of the AC system
failed. Parts are on order but this
means another trip to the service
department--three within the first two
months of ownership.

Best Features

Favorite features are style, handling and safety.

Worst Features

A vehicle in this price range should have a DVD based navigation system. The collection of CDs is antiquated. Mercedes needs to improve its quality control.
