2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S500 5.0 V8


Effortlessly gracious performance


Airmatic suspension struts (ZAR21,000 each + labour).

Airmatic pump (ZAR7,000 + labour).

Crankshaft position sensor.

Mass airflow meter (ZAR1,800 + labour).

Throttle body (ZAR21,000 + labour).

Wiper blades cost ZAR800 each.

General Comments:

The ride is truly a magic carpet ride, due to the Airmatic suspension, however it handles like a magic carpet too. Not good around bends.

The sound system is excellent, but MP3/Bluetooth is seriously missed and the base performance is below par.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
