Come on people use your Brian's these cars are fantastic. if u want something to last you have to maintain it. Its all about maintenance with any car. There's a lot of people that do it wrong, don't just go down to your local auto parts store and get any type of fluids, come on now its a s500!! Go to a German auto parts n get the best fluids, but know your shee it caz they tend to sell u something that anit good n they gona say its the best.
Same thing with parts, know your stuff do a lil bit of research for crying out loud! That's where people go wrong. Maintenance is key to keeping your cars running right.
Also, no sheit things like the suspension might go out after years of use n abuse, ever car has these abviouse problems. The thing is they aren't as noticeable on others because the suspension system isn't as complex as the benz. Ima dumb it down a lil for some, if every car had the benzs suspension system it would have just as many if not more problems.
Don't get me wrong stuff happens and things might fail sooner than it should, but it happens with every car.
If u do some of the maintenance your selfs, y'all will save a lot.
if not find a good shop that u can trust, not one that will tell u everything is wrong with the car when there really isn't, a lot of shops do that.
Long story short. Don't expect to go eat at a high end restaurant and expect MacDonald prices. don't be dumb and buy a car that hasn't been maintained properly or you'll pay for it.
Awesome car, best ride, even the handling is great for a big body car. I just wasn't too satisfied with the breaks, upgraded to some bigger drilled disk n break pads. Other then that just regular maintenance n i avoided bigger problems.
I replace the brake and the rotors. It makes the nosie when the speed drops to about 10-5mph,
I own a 2000, Mercedes G-500. When I push the gas there is a clicking noise in the front of the vehicle. This only happens when I am pushing the gas.
This problem started when my engine fan refused to stop after turning off my ignition. I later discovered that the fan controller module was bad and i replaced it. After then the car has drain 3 new 12volt batteries and the problem still persist.
WHAT COULD THIS BE? WHY IS IT NOT STARTING?
And sometime it want now it just trying to catch but want crank can you give me a few pointers that could be the issue?
I was doing a google search to look for a problem with the auxiliary fan motor and came across your website, it had highlighted the search I was looking for but couldn't find it. Just wanted to see if this was a problem Mercedes would fix or if I have to do it on my own
Serpentine belt is on OK
I see no broken belts -- any more belts other than serpentine?
Any idea where to look, or should I just tow to the shop
