2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

We have had our R-Class for about a year and a half and it is a beautiful car that seats 6 like no one else. However we have had to take it into the shop too many times, for things like: 1. Static in the audio system Across CD, Sat radio, regular radio, (MB has made software upgrades to the software numerous times, the issue may be addressed but the issue was very intermittent so we will see. 2. Frayed driver seatbelt. 3. Transmission strange noise 4. Electronic tailgate not operating properly. 5. Cloth being separated at the back opening of the tailgate. 6. Navigation system returning erroneous information frozen random display. 14 service tickets over about 16 months.


Best Features

Looks great. Seating is great.


Worst Features

Fix the key so that when the car needs to be left with the service center or valet they have a hole to tie a tag onto. Improve yor quality now that Chrysler is gone. Improve your electronic technology in the cars. The cars should be able to identify the drivers and adjust the settings of the car.

2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R500 4dr Wagon AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


Review

This is a great car for the purpose intended , i.e. long trips , hauling kids and stuff. Iinterstate cruising is comfortable and as fast as you dare. Gas consumption in the R500 is about 20 mpg on the highway and 14 mpg in town. I will probably get another R class, but will get the diesel version .


Best Features

Comfort and versatility


Worst Features

Better fuel consumption

Review

This is our first MB and we love this vehicle. It is very roomy, comfortable, and large enough for 6' men to drive and ride. The cargo space is more than adequate with the third row seats folded down. Folding and unfolding the third row is quicky and very easy. The V6 is enough for this heavy vehicle which handles surprising sporty. The nav system is very hard to get used to but once mastered is a must have. Also, must have Parktronic to park as it is very, very long. Have had dash rattle issues that were quickly resolved by the dealership. No mechanical issues whatsoever. A pleasure to own.


Best Features

Parktronic, Harmon stereo, panoramic sunroof, size of seats.


Worst Features

MB needs to upgrade the nav system to touch screen. Suggest returning the shifter to the center console. Also, MB does not allow for "after factory" installation of the integrated phone or satellite radio. So if you are buying this car used without these options, you have been warned.

Review

If you want a sports car you do not want to look somewhere else. However, for a family vehicle it meets all the needs: safety, comfort and interior capacity. It is a pain to park, but what large family vehicle is not. The space between the second row of seats and the front is generous and can accomodate the space needs of growing children. It is a solid crossover vehicle.


Best Features

Harmon Kardon stereo system. Panoramic sunroof. 4-Matic


Worst Features

Second row bench instead of two seats.
