We had an ML320 and were really looking to trade for a BMW wagon, but, then we found the R350. From the first time my 6'2" husband sat in the third row and was comfy to the way it handles we were sold. The R350 is a large vehicle but drives like a sedan. We have the Saks Fifth Avenue edition and love the looks inside. For those of us moms who refuse to drive a minivan this is the perfect car.
The seating and the parking assistance. Second row seat warmers. The ease in which the third row folds down for storage. The looks and comments people give as we drive around town. Panoramic roof.
Navigation is bad and should be touch screen. Should come standard with automatic lift gate. The info center needs to be simplified. Too many buttons to push while driving. I have hit the cruise control several times while turning. The air ride noise sounds like a bull behind you.
