"My family loves this vehicle. I've owned 5 MB's and it is a joy to have my family understand the difference. My R500 is a sleeper, most people don't realize the power. AMG & Premo Packages add lasting value and looks to this car. Great for road trips."
"I wanted a plain ole minivan. My husband wanted a Benz, so we compromised. Our 2006 R350 rides smoothly although when I am driving and take my foot off the gas briefly and then accelerate again I feel a tugging. But otherwise the ride is smooth and comfortable. It is so roomy! This is what I love. Prior to owning this car I had a 07 C230 and compared to that car the r350 is so much better for my family. I can hual everyone around in this and still have room for groceries.
I have not had any mechanical issues but my CD player holds CD's sometimes and won't spit them back out. It won't even read them. That's one thing I hate.
It's very long. It is often difficult to park.
The dealership her has handled any issue that I have gone to them with concerning the vehicle and warranty."
"Great vehicle, drives well and very comfortable. No problems since we aquired it in Dec. '06. Great road trip vehicle, drove to Colorado thru the desert and mountains, no problerms. Only setback: For the price seat warmers should be standard."
"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."
