Replaced GL450 (which I loved)with R350. Never realized driving would be so much fun. Mileage not great but 19 in town and 24 on the road with the second tankful! Handles very much like my wife's S500 and is just as comfortable and secure on the road. Without question it's the best; most reliable, nicest appointed and well engineered Mercedes I've had.
Bluetooth, voice activated navigation, phone and radio, comfort, room, handling, appearance...too good to list all that I like.
Please, please, please MBUSA allow default between "C" and "S" to be the last selected as it was in prior year models!!! I don't like having to select "S" each time I get in the car even though the mileage is better in "C".
