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


I thought this car was a wonderful solution for a luxury drive with three rows of seats.
That is until it had complete transmission failure at 48k miles, notwithstanding regular and expensive service at my local dealership, Autohaus on Edens.
According to my independent, it has a failure in almost every major system.
Neither the dealership nor Mercedes will stand behind the car and it will cost more than its blue book value to fix.
Had planned on buying MBs forever.
Never again!
