Pros

Lots of Torque, Lots of Class

Cons

Not a track car

65

Its Really Really Comfortable — Well it is a very classy car, and it has a lot of torque. It is definitely not a track car, so I wouldn't try to put it around turns too much. However, it packs a decent punch when flooring it. It can accelerate about the same as a stock 2005 Mustang GT. It's also really fun in a parking lot. The back seats are pretty much the most comfortable back seats you can find in a sedan. Heated AND Cooled Seats also make the car very comfortable, as well as the built in massager. Also, the makers of the car decided that a cigarette lighter and ashtray on each passenger door was necessary.

Pros

Extremely spacious, smooth handling, driving and suspension. Overall, this is an exceptionally great car. Ahead of its time considering the year of this model, yet the standards still hold up closely to more contemporary 4-DR Sedans.

Cons

High quality of the vehicle inevitably suggests high maintenance costs. Gas mileage could be better considering the recent trend in improvement to gas-mileage efficiency in vehicles, but it is not unreasonable.

Great Car Overall. — Love this car. It has certainly been reliable and definitely provided the feeling of luxury in the sense that one can drive this car and truly feel relaxed given the comfort that is provided by the car's performance and very appealing trim/design.

Pros

The 2000 Mercedes Benz S430 has a powerful 4.3L V8 engine, Tons of features. Great for short and long trips. very reliable car. Could be the smoothest ride ever made.

Cons

Very minor rust on bottom of doors.

Stunning Car, Inside And Out. — The Performance of this Mercedes Benz is only matched by the attention to detail that is put into every Mercedes Benz. You will not find another car made in 2000 with as many features and extras that this car has.

Awesome If You Can Afford To Own It — when you think of mercedes you think of style and luxury.....the S500 has both. it rode like a dream and it was sleek. the power behind the 5.0L V8 sent chills down my back. everything in the car is electronic so u barely have to move even to fold the mirrors

Pros

German Engineering

Cons

Cost

45

If You Have The Money, Buy One. — Well, what more can I say, its a Mercedes! The performance is amazing, very quick acceleration, and smooth braking. Cost of ownership, like I said its a Mercedes-Benz, and the part for repair are much more expensive than my honda. Engineering is beyond brilliant, and it looks like a mobster ride. Beautiful car, fun to drive, fun to own, but beware of financial issues if you plan on getting a Benz.

Mb — This car is my daily driver to work and weekend trips, etc. Can be quite expensive to maintain. I always say bring your knee pads and lube when having it serviced at the dealership. The self-leveling system can be a nightmare at times. Brake pads/rotors are expensive as well.

Wonderful Automobile-rust Is Horrible — I ordered this car in mid 1999. Picked it up September 7 2000. Have driven it full time for 146,000 miles. It has been and is a beautiful, incredible automobile in so many ways. The engine and drive train are like the day I bought it. Many of the gadgets are clumsy and have stopped working. The car is riddled with rust and has been for four years. I had it painted three year ago and as the paint shop owner warned me it has all returned only much worse now. If I keep the car all door skins must be replaced, two fenders, area around door frames, front windshield, all wheel wells must be cut out and painted of course.
