How Reliable are W221 S-Classes? Specifically The S550.

I just can’t help but notice how insanely affordable these have become. This Beautiful 2007 Champaign colored S550 4matic with 87,000kms (~54,000 miles) is for sale locally for $21,000 CAD with a one owner crystal clear carproof history.

Now don’t get me wrong I know these are much more expensive to maintain and that they are nowhere near as reliable as a Honda or Toyota but what I’m wondering is really just how bad are they?


I mean look at those beautiful lines and all that elegance. For less than what I paid for my for Fusion I could be driving a fucking S-Class!!!

I wonder if you can get a Carmax type warranty in Canada. I mean if you could get a warranty that would cover for 3 years and 50,000 miles for 5k or so this would be a total no brainer.
