S-Class S430 2000

I owned an S430 for six years. The round the wheel arches is a problem, even when in a garage. It’s not something one expects with a car costing 60K in year 2000. It is fitted adaptive cruise, which was when I first bought the car but the prognosis suggests that the could be the auto box and or the radar both being cost to replace.

The car is superbly quiet comfortable and to drive, but I have doubts what will fail If other manufacturers can make cars albeit when are 10 years old, Mercedes to put more into quality especially when one considers the charged. I have considered S.H. ’S’ Class but the of the new 7 speed auto puts me

S-Class s500l 2006

Do not buy a S Class. Purchased my car from an dealer, within a month was water ingress in the passenger causing all the heater controls to Water ingress is not usually by warranty and it had been caused by building up in the drainage channels at the of the screen. a common problem Mercedes cars. A few months the car almost … me when all the circuits failed while down a hill.

As the gear selector and handbrake is there is no way of putting the handbrake on or the car in park. I sat on the hill for twenty before the car eventually started. The car is three months out of warranty and what, Mercedes are charging me for They have had the car for three and still are unable to diagnose is causing the problem.

This potentially lethal flaw could cause harm or injury. Will be to Audi or BMW instead.

I put the problem down to the at the top of the bonnet clogging up, and the only way to clear it is to take off the wheel to get proper access to the bottom of the I had the same problem on my previous S Great car, but these should have been with a bigger drain and access. – Jim Smith Lothians
