Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mercedes S-Class Coupe coupe?
The S-Class Coupé is a large car, so check the bodywork carefully for any scuffs or dents – these can be expensive to set right. Also make sure that all that electrical equipment on board works as it should, including the seats, infotainment system and boot lid.
Reported problems with the S-Class Coupé are relatively few, and on the whole owners seem happy. Most problems seem to centre on non-engine electrics, which is why it’s always good to check these carefully.
Airbag might not perform correctly
Some front passenger airbags weren’t installed correctly. Parts of it could therefore detach when the bag goes off and cause injury to occupants. As part of the recall, Mercedes will fit a new airbag module if required.
Reliability has been a little mixed of late, and the S-Class didn’t feature in our most recent survey. However, the latest E-Class and the C-Class all did well in their respective groups, although the brand as a whole finished in 24th place out of 30 manufacturers.
