"5 years ago I bought my S420 with 114000 Miles ,now I have 212000 Miles on the odometer.
The regular service by the dealer are not cheap but there were only a few repairs.The weak spots are the close assist,the blower motor regulator and the window regulator.
I get an average of 18 MPG and even the car is now 16 Years old a lot of compliments about the looks and drive of the S-Class"
"Fantastic acceleration and great handling for such a big car. Technology is great too and has been reliable thus far (coming up on 3yrs). Only nit is stereo reception has interference sometimes. Overall, by far the best car I have ever owned!"
"This is the third MB I have owned and by far the best. We also own a Lexus LS 460 and we prefer to ride in the Benz. Quality, comfort, ease of operating the controls including the Navigation are supurb."
