I bought an S 430 new in 2000. Thank God there was a warranty, because
everything in the world went wrong in the first couple of years. Replace
the AC , replace the front suspension, and a jillion other smaller things.
Now however with about 80,000 miles, it seems to be OK. I did today have to
replace the ABS acutuater pump ($1400), but that's probably normal for a car
with this age and mileage.
The main problem with this car is the cost of service. For example, new
wiper blades are $68 each. If you can find a non-stealership mechanic, do
so. Otherwise, it's a great car.
