Don't buy without at least one spare key

I bought this car while driving my 3rd Lexux LS-series and having owned the one Lexus GS400. I love this car after nine years of ownership. We even purchased the self-same 1999 S320 when he eventually saw my positive experience with it. Mercedes Benz, however, has abandoned this car and its current owners by seizing to make available the chip for any future ignition keys. If you lose your last one, my local Colorado dealership quoted me +/- $10,000 in labor to dismantle the dash, etc., to provide a new ignition.


This is a very sturdy, safe vehicle

I originally bought it for some seniors, but ended up keeping it. It has several different features, like rear lighted vanity mirrors for rear passengers and little things. I was told these models were made for dignitaries. They have very thick windows. I was told they're bullet proof but I would say bullet resistant. Large gas tank. Not bad on gas.


Best car ever made by Mercedes-1999 before they we

I love this car and would keep it, but at my advanced age my wife drive most of the time so we needed a new mercedes with all of the idiot lights and back up camers


best car ever for me !

such a smooth ride engine, transmission a/c all perfect no problems. love the big trunk, and enormous luxury interior. check out the windows, they do not make glass this thick anymore !


Price was a bit more then I was willing to pay.

Nice vehicle for the year, it handles real well and the color was nice. Very roomy and would fit my family comfortably


The best s500 you csn ever buy

The last of the true hand built Mercedes.one of the best S classes ever built.the year 1994 to 1999 are the true S class.

Smooth, beautiful, elegant, great craftsmanship

Beautiful one owner car that would make any owner very happy. Very well maintained and inside and outside are very clean


Mercedes does it best in 1999 ( try no recalls)

If it had the bells and whistles of the current year cars I would keep it, but since I travel more I just need more and don't want to put the miles on this classic.



We had a 99 500 S, after 2 prior editions. Bought it new, drove it for twelve years. It was the best car we ever had. We took good care of it and it took good care of us. At 125000 miles it still ran like new, but then it gave up it's life to take care of us. We were hit from behind in a collision that totaled the Mercedes and knocked us into another car, but my wife (who had severe spinal problems) and I sustained only minor injuries. The seats didn't break, the doors still opened, but it would've cost far more to repair than it was worth. One of our sadder memories is seeing it on the flatbed, being taken away. Far and away the strongest, most powerful, quietest and most comfortable car we ever had. We can no longer afford such a great car, but I can't say enough good things about it.
