2001 Mercedes-Benz S-Class S430 from North America
This car is a RUST bucket. It's starting to show electrical problems (dashboard lights flickering), lamps keep burning out (at $200 per light bulb!), problems notification turning on for a day and then vanishes.
Drives well and handles great. I love it but will never buy a car that costs so much and in 5 years you need to throw it away because of rust!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I personally have NEVER seen a contemporary MBZ S Class in North America with the rust you mention. Or any rust as a matter of fact.
Where exactly on the car is this rust you speak of? You failed to mention where and how much exactly.
Why did you not have the car inspected before buying it? Sounds like you should be more upset with yourself than the car.
Have it repaired or sell it and get something else, but it won't be as nice unless it's another S Class BENZ!
