2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R500 4dr Wagon AWD (5.0L 8cyl 7A)


I've had this car for 1 month and have driven 2,000 miles. I love everything about this car. It handles like an E- Class. There is the typical MB/BMV sedan driving feel. I opted for the airdynamic suspesion that is wonderful. On/off exit ramps feel terrific with the sports mode, highway- comfort mode and around town-normal mode. A better rear seating arrangement than an S/ML-class. The command center is reasonable intuitive but you have to spend a little time getting to know it. I integrated the phone system, NAV and ipod system. EZ to use. My only complaint is lack of adequate luggage space for long distances when using all seats. Will need cargo rails with large cargo carrier. Buy!

Best Features

Multifunction display, COMMAND system, integrated phone, integrated ipod system. The smooth power of the 500. Tele-Aid.
