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


I drove our new R350 1000 miles from the dealer in KY. I now know why the car is called a tourer. Quiet, smooth, comfortable - a great ride. It isn't a quick vehicle but has enough power. Nice surprises - the cruise control with two increments (up and down one mile per hour to tune speed) - intermittent wipers - ipod integration kit (though it would be nicer to be able to select a play list from the radio controls) - better gas mileage than I feared (22.5) Little annoyances - should have checked out the Xenon lights because on low beam, they don't have great illumination - black interior (and carpet) shows dirt, dust. Overall very happy with it and family loves the room!

Best Features

* quiet - can talk to kids in the way back without yelling. * room and comfort - really comfy * smooth, solid ride - feels like quality * don't look too big or drive like a truck/suv

Worst Features

- ipod integration should allow selection of playlists - don't get black interior (my fault) - better low beam headlights (should have bought Xenon)
