Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Problems

Poor AC performance Due to Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

Engine Misfire and/or Lack of Power

Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.

Front thrust arm and control arm bushing can crack or tear
Front thrust arm and control arm bushings can crack and sometimes tear completely. If this is not repaired quickly, damage to the front subframe unit will occur, which is very expensive to repair. Updated control arms (that prevent damage to the subframe when the bushings wear out) are available.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System Malfunctions

The tire pressure monitoring system warning light may not come on or stay on for appropriate lengths of time. Dealers will reprogram the tire pressure monitoring unit free of charge to resolve the concern.

Door Locks May Not Operate As Expected

During production, on fifty-four Mercedes S-Class models, the front and rear door locks may have been mistakenly interchanged. This means that a rear passenger could open the rear door with a simple pull of the interior door handle, and the front passenger could not open by pulling on the interior handle. This situation could affect the safe exiting of the vehicle in a crash or protection against the accidental opening of the rear door by a child. Dealers will inspect the part numbers on all door locks and replace any that are incorrect. The recall began on March 27, 2009. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2009030001.

A Front Ball Joint May Fail Prematurely

One or both front suspension ball joints may fail. Vehicles with significant mileage are more prone to this type of failure. Dealers will inspect and replace the ball joints as necessary. The recall is scheduled to begin during February 2009.

Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Reviews

I liked the power but the motor kept consuming oil to fast
I just bought it and it's awesome!
Best 5 seater sedan ABC sport is the best suspension setting! Pilot Tyres wear - that's only issue with offset camber.
