It is referred to as the best car ever made. My experience supports that extreme view
A couple of rattles when I first got it. Brilliantly quiet since.
Problem suffered by others with engine running as though half cylinders are out. When just warmed up. Intermittent frustrating. A dozen visits to garages every Mercedes expert consulted. Here is the solution: Replace both distributor caps (2 came backbackABCBC'?). Fixed!!!
Computer managing wipers.
Indicators replaced (twice).
By comparison with other cars, the 500s has been less costly on maintenance, for the best car I have ever owned or driven. I love that car.
It's a car made for royalty. That's how I feel when I am in it. It has to be experienced first hand.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
