1996 Mercedes S600

Asked by Sep 10, 2008 at 09:24 AM about the 1996 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S 600

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I'm contemplating a used S600, and was wondering how durable the 12-cylinder motor is, how many miles I can expect with normal driving and routine maintenance?  The car presently has about 65,000 miles on it now.  Thanks!

Fantastic car to own. I have a 2007 model with about 45k miles. The only real issue I've had is the coil packs. After researching them online, it seems to be a common problem with the V12 motor every 50k miles. My advice would be to ask when the last time the coil packs were replaced. My repair for one of the two packs was about $2k.
