"I am a first time Benz owner. I LOVE the looks of the R Class and the features are nice and the comfort is great. I have had a few of the mostly electronic problems, but they have all been covered under warranty. I am bummed that it has been in the shop a few times- sorry to say probably since this model is built in the US, plus mine is a 2006 which was the first year out. I love it when it works right, but today it is in the shop once again."
