Love it. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 12/25/2011. Trim: 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500, Owned 3 years.
Pros: This is a great car. Looks good, feels good. This car is a great representation of MB's expertise in the automotive world.
Cons: Gas mileage, (repairs$$$!!!!!!), air-matic system, minor sensor issues. (although minor, can still get spendy)
Overall review: Awesome car. When it was made it was the equivalent of a space ship. 10 yrs later and its still a competing luxury sedan.

Electrical nightmare & no help from MB by BH on 10/15/2007. Trim: 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Good looking, rides smooth, good gas mileage, quiet, classy car.
Cons: Radio comes on spontaneously and runs battery down. MB and dealer don't know how to fix and won't try. Took to private shop that works on MBs. Still has same problem but at least they're trying. Can't drive out of town or have to jump batt in hotel parking lot & have to keep on batt charger at home. New fix is solar chargers and cutoff switches for offending components. Should have stayed with simple relays and avoided computers. Routine maintenance is outrageous. Am selling MB and buying a Lexus if not fixed by end of the month.
Overall review: Unfortunately the bad greatly outweighs the good. Check internet for problems before you buy.

"The limousine" by German car maniac on 05/10/2011. Trim: 2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The styling of this car is eye cathing, performance at its best. Although was not born on fuel economy, the rewards of driving it is worth. I enjoy every trip, every day. Mercedes work hard on designing and building one of the best cars in history, owners enjoy the product. I won't sale my car, I'll keep it for many years to come.
Cons: I had a bad experience as the A/C blower housing got cloged with sediment and rain water entered the cabin flooding the back seat where the transponder and fuse assembly with a lot of relays are. Fortunally I repaired with less than a thosand dollars, may be an engneering design issue. The disc changer was damaged and there is no way to abtain replace parts, othewise, is a perfect machine.
Overall review: I recommend this vehicle without reserves, one of the best I ever owned.
