He said if he was going to own an MB, it would be an E Class since they caused no where near the troubles of an S Class. He said the S Classes had too much electronic wizardry to own a used one.
They all have the closing assist, and almost all cars have a broken closing assist at some stage.

What a story, I should feel blessed with my 00 W220, 8 months and zero problems. A little after the fact, congrats on the new ride. The W124 was a great car. I ran mine up to 155K before I sold it and only had normal wear items, no major problems, as good as any Acura or Lexus.
