Great car, but a ton of money
By big dan on


2007 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4dr Wagon AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


The interior is superb, roomy, and comfortable. Except for a driveline noise that seems to be appearing, the interior is quiet and the ride is smooth. You can tell that the engine is a little small for this 5000lb beast, but the 7-speed makes do with what it's got to make it manageable. Fuel mileage is around 17.5 city and 22 highway. Not bad for a 7 passenger vehicle! The maintenance cost is high, so beware. An oil change (just oil, nothing else!) is $280. You can do the maintenance yourself, but I am expecting a challenge from MB on lease turn in time.

Best Features

Roomy, quiet, and smooth. Great interior quality and fit and finish. Good mpg for its size and intention. Good stereo.

Worst Features

Why does a $50+k car need an additional item to make the bluetooth work? See other people's comments on that one! Can be expensive to maintain, but that's to be expected. I have had a couple of minor quality issues with the driveline (sensors, noise). No navigation and/or touch screen for $50k?
