Last German Car...
By freddys555 on


2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


I have been a long time driver of German makes.
From BMWs to Mercedes, I have owned over 6 German made cars.
I have never been more disappointed in the quality and reliability.
Most recently, my 2011 S-Class Mercedes.
Although new with 8,900 miles, I have been back to the dealer 5 times for A/C malfunction, check-engine light, GPS malfunction and much more.
No matter how polite the service department may be, this is the last German car I will ever purchase again.
I am disappointed as I will miss the exceptional performance but I do not have the time nor patience to keep bringing back my German cars to the dealer.
My wife has a Lexus 460 with over 48K with absolute "zero" problems...

Best Features

Great acceleration, handling and interior/exterior design.

Worst Features

Mercedes-Benz perhaps need to learn a lesson from the Japanese. They do not compromise quality over performance. This is the same disappointment I have had with my previous BMW 7-series. 56K miles and numerous trips to the dealer. Poor reliability. Not worth the money and time.
