moving on up from 1999 to ?

I have a 1999 s320 and am considering a younger MB. My mechanic says to look for a 2004 or 2005 S430. He says after that BEWARE. Any W-220 S430 owners that want to share their thoughts about changing? Thanks

2003 and up, S430 or S500 depending on your budget.

In the USA 2006 is the same as the 04 and 05 and is fine

In Europe Early 2006 cars were the revised w221 chassis new body style and they had an engine problem in the s350 and s550 which was fixed in late 2007

2008 and newer cars are fine
