Need Next Benz...

Hi. I recently lost my 1995 s420 in a rear end collision. I'm in the market for my next benz. My S class treated me well- and I want something newer now- just looking on advice what to stay away from. I can tinker and have a mechanic close by. Anything specific to look for on a 2000 ish s class?

I would suggest to look at the 2003 models and newer. The 2000, 2001, and 2002 models were known to have Airmatic problems. My first car was a 2000 S430 and I loved it, but the air suspension started to cave so I traded it in.

Do your research on Airmatic in the W220 forum it will have lots of good info.
