Pros

Firstly being an Australian Model it is an S320 so it is a lot more economical but still has plenty of power.

Cons

Warnings have come up occassionally, ESP, BAS, Airomatic etc.  twice checked twice nothing wrong just a possible power fluctuation triggered the warnings.  The biggest problem is the plastic biodegradable trims.  They keep breaking.  very expensive to fix and not worth doing as they continue to break.

Love To Drive This Car — I traded my previous W140 for the W220. I liked having he lighter car and the better fuel economy and airbags. The car handles very well. it has been good on tires and with regular service in a year has been most reliable. I hope it stays that way. The only problems have been warnings of problems that do not exist. I have been told this is common. The worst part of the car really is the plastic seat trims on either side they just break even after replacing a couple they still broke. This has been the biggest problem to date. The car has 230,000 km uses almost no oil. I service it regularly and that seems to be a must. Being an Australian car it does not suffer from any rust problems. I keep reading the odd horror story and wait but so far so good.

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.

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.

Amazing Mercedes — This monster, Peridot Metallic (I call it Mountain Dew yellow), S500 is beyond belief! Formerly owned by a retired NFL player, this tricked out Benz has it all from walnut inlaid chrome spinners to an entertainment system to put anything to shame! Simply AMAZING! The exhaust makes it sound more like a jet than a Mercedes and the bi-xenon lights are brighter than the moon. You will never have a cold or hot behind with the air conditioned/heated/massaging seats and you will never be missed while driving down the road due to the unique color that makes EVERY head spin! And to top it off, it was even autographed by the GB Packer player himself (in 2 spots) when we took delivery of it. This truly is a one of a kind machine.

Mercedes-benz S430 — The S430 is Mercedes-Benz' flagship vehicle. It's performance is truely amazing and the buid quality is second to none. The interior quality is simply prestigious and fully loaded with every option. The exterior appearance is absolutely gorgeous and it is so much fun to drive. Just like the plates say, "LIVEIT"

Pros

Lots of Torque, Lots of Class

Cons

Not a track car

45

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.

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.

Smooth Luxury, High Power — This car at 14 years and 78,000 mile is as smooth and powerful as the day it drove off the lot. If there is a problem with it on the highway - it's too smooth. If you are not careful you will be over the speed limit swarming you're not over 30mph!
