Hi group, I'm new here hope you can help. I own a black 2008 R class. Original owner, the only one who has ever driven it. Love the car never had an issue with it. 33,500 miles on it. However this past week I noticed what looked to be two small indentations in the rear side bumper. Almost like the bumper supports are showing through the paint. It has to be ... Read More
Well, I can't speak about that specific deal, but the market has definitely changed. The deal I got on a one model year old with 5200 miles has gone up by at least $5000 to $8000 in the past year. The used car market in general has changed for all cars. Fewer big deals on new cars also. There is lots of talk on a Mercedes owners forum and the general ... Read More
The best to fix it is REPLACING THE CAR!!! I changed it last November for a 2011 GLK350 Fantastic Ride and build like a tank, proudly made in Germany! absolutely no problem whatsoever. I lost money on the R350, they updated the software, and some other things but they could NEVER pinpoint the random shifting problems and shake ups. This adds up to alternator problems, early serpentine failure, battery failures, the ... Read More
Im in the market for a 2008 R350, but concerned about the warranty - really only going out 2 year plus a few months. I am willing to pay a bit more for a 5 year warranty. Is the warranty through Mercedes Benz, where you can bring it to any dealership? Was the 5 year warranty a big part of the negotiations? Thanks.
As an owner of a 08 R350 you can guess my choice : ) I just checked out the Mercedes Benz USA facebook page, and the stories of crash survivors would be enough for me to make a decision if I were you! Good Luck
About 10 days ago I bought my wife a used 2008 R350 and we both love the car. Never had a Mercedes before. Extremely spacious, well equipped and fun to drive and getting roughly 23 MPG on highway. I know the cost of ownership will be more then my Volkswagen however love the style of the R350 and the comfort.
You bought 'my' car. I love mine. I don't know what power package you bought and options, but no matter, it sounds like you still got an OK deal. I would have done the same on buying that car. Buy the warranty... and haggle it down, too. You should be able to get it for around $800. =D My favorite features are the gear shift, auto phone sync, power lift gate, ... Read More
Are you saying another 2 year 100K or do you mean exactly what you're typing: 2 year, 10,000, as in ten thousand mile warranty for $2,500 dollars? If so, BS for 10K miles. Also, he can do far better on that price and mileage. I would have gotten a far better deal btw. Last year, I bought a dealer's demo 2008, never titled with under 11K miles, with the extended 100K ... Read More
I am hoping to negotiate a deal on a 2008 Mercedes R 320 cdi TODAY. After reading Drattan's post from Aug 15 th (and previous posts), I am hoping you can tell me WHAT DEALERSHIP (name, city, state) is willing to negotiate $11,000 - $13,000 off MSRP. I am willing to go outside the state, whereever necessary, to get the best deal. PLEASE RESPOND RIGHT AWAY IF POSSIBLE. Also, I would ... Read More
Purchased a new 2008 Mercedes R class on Oct 21'st of this year. The day after i bought the car i noticed a ding in the front fender and many scratches all over the car. Called the dealer who informed me that they would take care of it at the time I came in for its 1,000 mile service. This being a mercedes I trusted them and figured all would be ... Read More

Hi, I'm sorry that I'm just now responding....months later. The Orange Park Mercedes Benz dealership. link title
I live in Jacksonville, FL, area. I was willing to travel up to 350 miles to pick up a vehicle. I had also decided that I was willing to buy Certified Pre Owned (CPO) because with MB, you will get a warranty up to one year after the original warranty expires (4 years, 50K miles) then add an additional 50,000 miles. So, keeping in mind of when the vehicle went into ... Read More
A dealer today in CT told me the interest rates to lease an '08 R350s was 9% while the rates on an '09 are ~ 4.5%. I'm looking for an '08 and the associated $9,000 dealer incentives but if the interest rates through Mercedes Benz really are that high I may reevaluate. Can anyone confirm this info? By the way, my R500 is coming off lease next month and they quoted ... Read More

We are having the same problem. We bought our 2008 R350 in Dec07 with 5700 miles. At 9700 miles, the battery was completely drained and the car was towed to the dealer. They had it for 9 days, then returned it (with hesitancy) saying they still didn't know what caused it and it would probably happen again. They did replace the battery. Well, it did happen again at 13,500 miles, it ... Read More

We bought our brand new 2008 R350 this month. 2 days after driving away, the battery drained completely (car would not even open with key). The technician chalked it up to one of two things: 1.) the kids leaving a light on, even though our kids can't reach the upper light & do not touch anything else. (we are especially careful to check for lights on at night, especially because of ... Read More
Ok, for the 2008 R350, P2 with the panoramic roof, 2nd row center console, heated seats, bluetooth, metallic paint--51000. Probably could have gone a little lower but I got bored. My question is--how did they give you a MF? My dealer told me that it will depend on the number Mercedes sets in November when the car will be delivered??
On the 2007 R350 and R500,Mercedes is giving $6500 of marketing incentives to the dealers that is usually passed on to the consumer. You might want to check what your lease numbers would be like on a 2007. What is the discount from MSRP that you are getting on the 2008 R350?

Do someone knows what's the diff. in GL450 and GL550? like comparison link or something... As I understand it, the main differences are the engine, of course, and the options packages are all standard. As you know, Mercedes is notorious for expensive option packages and accessories that escalate the prices of its vehicles. If you took the GL450 and started equipping it like the GL550, you would see how rapidly and ... Read More
I must admit, I've never heard of a cars price going DOWN. I'm kinda surprised to read that. By how much is it expected to drop?
I went to my local dealer to take a look at the 2007 R320 CDI and possibly take it for a test drive. They said they don't have any right now but expect to get some in late July. However he said they are likely to be the 2008. I would prefer the 2008 anyway since they're supposed to be cheaper but was surprised by the early date (I thought it ... Read More
Theodore-- What you have done in ordering a special for Fall delivery this year is EXACTLY what my dealer is trying to persuade me to do. Here are my concerns and I hope you (or anyone else) can help me: 1. How can you order a vehicle for which you don't know the price? 2. Won't the dealer feel that he has you locked in now and the negotiation of the ... Read More
No, dealers don't yet have pricing info on the '08. I would expect pricing to be lower for '08 on similarly spec'd cars, but standard equipment and optional packaging has changed for '08, so its not straightforward to compare and contrast. I don't think the '08 CDI is available in CA/NY/... - I remember reading that it would be for '09. I'll check with my dealer again. And, no brochures yet ... Read More
This is good to know. Did they mention pricing? Apparently, prices are expected to go down a bit from 2007 model (at least in Europe). And did they mention if 2008 CDI is 50 state compliant? Did they have brochures printed for 2008?
Last week I special ordered the 2008 R350. Production is scheduled for Sept '07 and delivery in Oct '07. For '08 you can choose RWD or AWD. AMG body styling is standard for '08. Panorama roof is not included in the Premium packages - its a separate option. Also, you can choose 7-seat setup as an option. (The short wheelbase is not for the US market)
We have been looking for a SUV for quite a while now. Like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90. Q7 is too expensive and the Volvo XC90 is just boring and both get poor gas mileage. The R Class is getting a good update and gets great mileage. At 21 city and 28 hwy and range of about 600 miles. You have to watch the gas money more than the monthly ... Read More
Not getting a V8 is just ok with me. I am more keen on getting a higher mpg all state diesel. What would be even more sweet is to get 280CDI which will likely have even better mpg compared to 320CDI.
My MB Dealer has again informed me that R-Class Model offerings for the 2008 Model Year will be limited to R-350 two-wheel and 4Matic versions and the R320CDI but no R500/R550 or R63. If true, you'd better get your V8 now!
Looks like 2008 R-Class has been announced for European market. Is there any word on US launch? Are we likely to get the same updates, changes like 7 seat setup, long and short chassis, etc? Please share your thoughts here.
Hi Everyone: I need help as quickly as possible.

C-Class unveiling live on the Internet The countdown has began for the world premiere of the new C-Class in the Mercedes World in Stuttgart-Untertόrkheim. The press conference, which will be attended by some 600 journalists from around the world on 18th January 2007 can be seen live on the internet from 7:00 to 7:40pm (CET) by using a link that will be provided by DCX in the coming hours. Following the ... Read More
Well I think they've already shaken off the build quality complaints with the newer models like the SLK, CLS and now the S-Class. ALl have much better interiors than before, and in the case of the CLS a real upgrade from the E-Class on which it is based. Though the E is hardly bad having improved greatly over the previous E. I'm guessing the SLK will pick up this month being ... Read More
I bet the fallout has been something around the office! I wonder what they'll do for the next generation R, if there is one. It is amazing though because the R had a long lead from 2002 onwards as a concept and the interest seemed to be sky high during promotion, but then it hit the showroom floor with a thud. Here is a post I made over at MBWorld.org: This ... Read More
Hi rclassfan, I would call the Dealer immediately and talk with the Finance Manager. Tell him that there is a typographical error in the Lease Contract and have him correct it. If you don't get a satisfactory answer, call Mercedes-Benz Financial. In the 20+ years that I have been leasing from Mercedes-Benz, I have never seen or heard of a Lease Contract that asks for a payment in 2 days. Your ... Read More
Well there a couple of Benz salespeople that chime in on the R-Class board from time to time that have hinted that a major re-shuffle of the R-Class' standard/optional equipment is on tap for the 2007 model year. This would be in repsonse to slow R-Class sales. Just a guess at this point. Yes I have read (Automobile Magazine) that a R320 CDI will show up here before the end of ... Read More
Well the way I see it all of their core models are either old (C,S) or middle aged (E), and that is where the volume will come from once these models are updated. The new S should turn things around, as should the facelifted E-Class. I see what you're saying, but I don't think it is anything to worry about, yet. Now if this new S does a R-Class type launch ...

Ok, I'll bite. What's up with the 2.5L, 200HP C230? Why isn't it the C250? Are they trying to be like Lexus with a 2.5? Nothing to do with Lexus. The 2.5L V6 has been out in Europe since spring long before the IS250. I'm glad they didn't call it a "250" at this point to avoid confusion. I suspect that when the next C comes along it will be called ... Read More
An overview of the next 12 months: C-Class - Nothing but a long road ahead in the face of a new 3-Series and Lexus IS. New engines, all V6s will help maintain for 2006, but the 2007 model year will be a long one. Autoweek is reporting that AMG has built a few C63 AMGs, but I doubt we'll see the new AMG V8 in the current C-Class body. E-Class - ... Read More
There are lot of upcoming variations of the CLK, C and E-Class coming in a few months. Not all of this translates to U.S. market cars, but the most intersting E-Class variant is the new E320 CDI with the new V6. For the first time Mercedes will be able to offer a 4Matic diesel...the E320 CDI 4Matic. This model will definitely make it to the U.S. There is also a new ... Read More
Yeah I guess, though a 90 day survey really doesn't say much imo. To the survey worshipers this means absolutely nothing until Mercedes is #1, not only in this survey but in the 3-5 year ones also. Still though some improvement is better than none I guess. Hopefully there will be a corresponding improvement in the long term stats also. Thing is we have to wait until 2008 to truly find ...

In reading some other sites tonight there is a lot of talk about whats upcoming in the Benz lineup, here is what we know and the latest rumors by model year: 2006: CLK facelift new CLK350, C-Class new 2.5L, 3.0L, and 3.5L V6 engines, R-Class, M-Class, SLK280. S350 added to the S-Class lineup in the U.S. More standard equipment on all S-Class models for the final run of the S-Class. 2007: ... Read More
