We previously owned a mini-van and were looking at both station wagons and mini-vans when we found the R350. It had the smoothest ride of any car I have ever driven, and was not much more expensive than a Honda Odyssey, our second choice. We immediately took it on a 2,000 mile trip from Southern California to Oregon for a week of camping. We were impressed with how much gear we could fit in the back while also carrying two adults and two children. Everyone at the campground was coming by to check out the car because of its impressive exterior styling.
Large cargo capacity, quality build, smooth ride, interior comfort.
The standard radio is poorly designed and difficult to use. I sometimes have a hard time figuring out how to change from CD to radio. The large rear doors are hard for our kids to handle. Gas mileage could be better.
