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


Review

I had leased it for 2 years. Overall good performance especially for family. Lots of space. Very quiet ride. Would have been happy with some more juice! Good value compared to the very expensive models. Sleek front look, but not so with the rear look. I guess, you can be the judge. Had some minor issues, no big deal.


Best Features

Quiet ride lots of space. Worth the price when you compare with others


Worst Features

Needs more juice improve exterior look more cup holders higher seating position for short drivers

Review

We purchased our car used from a Mercedes dealer, it has been in the shop 9 times in 8 months. Tail lamps melted, rear hatch locked shut, air vents all broke. Temperature controls were stuck on a temperature could not change. Plastic on seat rails has broken multiple times. Bad wheel bearing, rattled catalytic converter, broken latch over spare tire, misc trim pieces needed to be realigned. We loved the car initially but after 8 months of loaners for a week at a time in some cases we have vowed to never buy another Mercedes. We have had several Mercedes prior to this one and this car has been a major dissappointment. I would encourage anyone not to buy this car. Do your homework!


Best Features

Car has long legs and cruises great on the highway.


Worst Features

Quality control really needs to be addressed. Mercedes has really dropped the ball. We have spoken with others who have had similar issues.

Review

Bought the car new in Feb,2007 because of great deal. My 3rd MB just love it. Great for road trips so comfortable especially love the 2nd row seats having same room as front seats. Have not had any problems with car just regular check ups.


Best Features

2nd row seats and all the cargo space have to drive an hour for shopping. Great gas mileage for the size of car.


Worst Features

None

Review

We purchased a lease return vehicle, replacing a Volvo XC90. The MB is pure luxury in nature. Although the controls are more complicated, the features are second to none. Everyone remarks about the car when we're out and about. At first I thought it was overpriced, but the feel while in the car shows that it is indeed well designed and confortable. We have two 15 year old boys that are 6 feet tall, and the room in the 2nd row sold us on the vehicle. They have lots of room and don't realize they are in a car, even on long trips. Heated 2nd row seats were also a selling point as we live in a cold climate, but have only had front heated seats available before. We are very happy with it.


Best Features

Huge sunroof makes rides more enjoyable. Easy to get into the 3rd row seats. Heated 1st and 2nd row seats. Power tilt/telescopic steering wheel. Compass and altitude display. Sound system. Dark tinted windows.


Worst Features

Navigation system and radio controls are too complicated. Park assist should beep earlier as you approach barriers.

Review

My first luxo-liner. Executive jet indeed it is. This is billiard table smooth on the highway. Nothing like it around town. Must haves are the panorama roof, and navigation and PDC (Parktronic). I can live without 4matic and heated seats. Less complexity and weight. People say "what is it?" And it gets the same mileage as my '06 Honda CRV did. Get one today!! You'll never go back to the "others."


Best Features

Panorama roof tilt up / wide open / Parktronic visual / audible radar aid (front / rear). Hot styling - mostly at rear. Massive comfort. Nothing else like it.


Worst Features

Make heated driver seat standard, and keyless Go and those beautiful R500 18" wheels standard too. A beautiful car.
