Why buy the R-Class
By Sheri on


2008 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R320 CDI 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


You'll love this vehicle if you have "tweens". Those teens that are not licensed to drive alone, so you still have to haul them and their high school buddies one or two more years. These teens have outgrown the 'soccer mom's van' and they, too, want to look cool if they are still going to have to be chauffeured by Mom or Dad. The driver will love saving your wrists and joints by just having to tap with your finger the steering column wand to change gears. 26 mpg is a deal sealer on this large vehicle. This is such a wonderful vehicle! You need to market to true baby boomers and tween families, such as I described. CALL this vehicle a WAGON... and it ain't yo' mama's wagon of the past

Best Features

The ParkTronic’s idiot proof system to help park your car. The automatic lift gate. No more unnatural, painful jerking of my wrists and thumbs to shut a back lift trunk door.

Worst Features

Better interior storage space and cup holders. Navigation, distronics, bluetooth, and DVD should be standard.
