Great Drive For The Money — A little soft on the ride but this is a preference. Need to keep tire pressure and routine maintaince up as it can be expensive. Spares for Designo interiors could become hard to find. Model is rare so will possibly start to appreciate very soon

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Designo was a top of the range car, cream interior and cooled seats are great in Florida. Acceleration is very good. Car has worn well and everything still works. Car was years ahead on the features. Very good ride with varimatic suspention system.  Build quality with Designo option make this an impressive car, They changed the body style in 2006

Cons: Gas milage not the best.  Better to keep on top of routine maintainance as it can be expensive to fix

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!

Pros: Smooth and luxurious after 14 years.

Cons: Silly things go wrong ...

Very Nice Ride. Smooth And Quiet. — Got it with 108k miles. Read reviews of 250k, 300k and even 480k miles. all said the 2000 S500 still going strong. It had a fair amount of rust along the bottom edges. Had to get it repaired and painted. Also had a battery drain problem. Turned out to be the driver door control module. $600 dealer repair. Needed valve cover gaskets, idler pulley, transmission mount/fluid change, cabin air and charcoal filters. Another $1,000. Nicely tinted by dealer. Replaced side mirror covers with the 2007 V-cut signal version. $130. Power everything. Interior in very nice shape.Booming stereo. Now it looks like a 2 year old car. This car originally sold for $80,000.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Timeless style. Smooth and quiet.

Cons: No tire pressure monitors (Optional but not included)
No rear seat heaters
At low volume the stereo lacks sufficient bass.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: powerful and smooth

Cons: expensive repairs, large price tag
