2003 Mercedes-Benz S-Class 430 V8 from North America
I won't buy another one
The tires wore out at 25000 miles.
The trunk lid shock holder broke.
This car is extremely comfortable.
The fuel mileage is great for the size of the vehicle.
The 4-matic transmission is excellent for traction in all mud or snow conditions.
The headlights do give adequate light to drive over 30 mph with the dims and 55 mph with the brights.
The original tires only lasted 25,000 miles. One would hope that when you pay $85,000.00 for car that the manufacturer would have installed a tire that would last 50,000 to 60,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The tire complaint is the single most asinine thing I've read in quite some time. They're performance tires, they wear out faster because they have better grip than the cheap 60k tires you buy at Wal-Mart. Furthermore, driving style has a great deal to do with how fast tires wear out. Regardless, if you can't afford the tires...
