I forgot to post an update! In Nov 2016, I found a CPO 2013 S65 with new rotors and a Meisterschaft exhaust (OMG!!) and bought it with every warranty they'd sell me. It's an amazing car and I love...

So I filled out an "application" last night online which included the year/make/model and my zip code and it said my quote was waiting for me, and that I just had to call CarChecx to get it. None of...

I just looked at the Carchex site and they don't show any Titanium plans via TWG, only from other providers. I had been in the market for a 2012 S65 AMG with 38k miles from Carmax, and would have...

When you say low power, do you mean super low power like limp home mode? Also, are your gates corroded or have carbon buildup? What do you think is causing them to catch?

Keep us posted...

Might carbon buildup be the most-likely/simplest solution? Are there any fuel additives or something like that that could help burn off the deposits over a few hard runs? ..or is that way too...

Carbon build up maybe? Is that a thing on these cars?

Would you describe the gate as internal or external? ...would you replace the part or the whole turbo?

Got more details... It took the dealer's tech several drives to replicate the problem. It threw codes and CEL apparently. Don't know the codes. After much testing, he tried to manually actuate the...

Nick - it's still their car, but it's on hold for me. If this proves to be something that can be readily resolved, and if an inspection doesn't reveal anything else particularly damning about the...

The dealer spent some time diagnosing the car and said it was an intermittent problem, but they say they narrowed it down to a turbo waste gate that sticks open once the engine heats up. Said the...

Could either of you explain in detail what you mean in detail? I drove an S65 W221 recently and changed from C to S while cruising at 50mph (or maybe it was to M, I can't recall) and right...

Interesting. I ran it and came up with $123K for the S65, but close enough. Devil is in the details though. Based on my mileage, asking price, interest costs, and subbing in the cost of a 5yr...

This happened to me today while test driving a 2012 S65 AMG!! 38k miles. I hadn't driven it hard yet. 1/4 tank of gas, hit a sweeping turn at low speed 50mph and then it was like someone shut the...

Bummer. I was getting ready to buy the S65 today, but on the final test drive, the throttle cut out after a few minutes and went into what I'll call "limp home mode". The transmission changed gears...

Good to know... I'm growing less concerned over maintenance costs, as I hear W221 cars are better overall than W220, and the ABC system (I have airmatic on my W220) was much improved apparently.

I've got a 2001 S500 w/ 140K miles that I've had forever. It came with the 7yr/100K warranty which came in very handy as things tend to break near 100K. I'm definitely familiar with the maintenance...
