i bought car new in 2000
the mass meter went bad after 4 yrs with 45000 miles
warranty would not cover , i called the 800 number and wnted to speak to teh managera - i was told accourdign to policy they will not let me talk to the manager.
upon my protest that Benz should not have such a part failure
he replied - this is a 4 yr old car , parts fail, and this is not a benz part , it is by Bosch
1 yr later the drvie door woudl not pull in.
diagnosed that the vac pump is gone bad. did not make sense since the otehr 3 doors and the trunk lid pulled in fine.
they replaced the vac pump/ motor
still did not work
they tool apart the door and after that it worked fine. ! was the vac pump bad -i do not think so
3 yrs later, 8 yr old car with 50000 miles , the pasenger belt stuck - the belt aswswembly had to be replaced
todl dealer - never heard the belt going bad on any car - he said they replace 2 - 3 every month
My brother has s 500, he had the mass flow meter go bad on his too
I am done buying Benz
bad quality and bad service -

I have a 2000 Mercedes Benz S500. My suspension failed on me a few months ago. The dealers cost to fix my car was too expensive. I just didnt have thousands of dollars to throw out there. So I started doing some research online on how to fix it. Then I came across Strutmasters.com - they had suspension conversion kits. I gave them a call to see what they could do for me! They told me they could fix my car for 937.00! That price was amazing compared to the dealers.

Well at first I couldn't decide. I looked around many places for other options cause I wanted to make sure the decision I was making wasn't going to cost me more in the Long run. .. But in the end I ordered with Strutmasters.com for the conversion kit they offered for my vehicle. It was 937.00. Its very different though, The conversion kit eliminates the air but your vehicle wont ever have any air problems again. It brings the car back to regular ride height. I must say though best discussion I made because I cant tell no difference in anything. the ride is smooth and excellent!

I had the same problems with my 2002 Mercedes S500. I got really tired of the air suspension failing on me then deciding it would work when it wanted to. I actually did the same thing, I went to Strutmasters.com and got one of those conversion kit and never have been happier with my product. Highly recommended . I was just happy it came with a Lifetime warranty.
