Great ride hidden by an edgy look

by from CT on August 23, 2010

Bought a 2007 R350 used, after getting rid of an ML 320 bought new in 2002. The ML was great but I sucumbed to a smaller vehicle (Nissan Rogue)because of the fuel mileage (14 city/ 19 hwy). Rogue was ...
Bought a 2007 R350 used, after getting rid of an ML 320 bought new in 2002. The ML was great but I sucumbed to a smaller vehicle (Nissan Rogue)because of the fuel mileage (14 city/ 19 hwy). Rogue was a big mistake. The tradeoff for the gas mileage didn't work because the Rogue was too small and uncomfortable to boot. The R class is definatly a sleeper. Great ride due to the long wheel base and rear air suspension, still handles well though. Gas mileage is an acceptable 17 city/ 23 hwy. If the repair record is as good or hopefully better than the ML, this is a keeper. The styling takes a little getting used to but it does grow on you especially if you need the room or want to be comfortable. You can drive this puppy for 16 - 20 hours and get out feeling like it was a trip around the block.

Drop-Dead Sexy Diesel

by from North Carolina on April 10, 2007

I'm in my 30s and wanted more than a sports car PLUS great gas mileage. My new R320 CDI delivers in style. I tote clients around several times a week & they're shocked it's a DIESEL. Estimates are low compared to the 24 CITY / 28+ HWY, which I recently got on my 3 Hour drive to Atlanta. Sirius Satelite Radio, Dual Rear DVD Headrests, Massive Sunroof and Ultra Dark Privacy Glass, Distronic Cruise Control (warns & slows/resumes by itself) make it the ultimate tourer. Awesome amounts of Torque. Spring for the Chrome Package-- it looks HOT! As far as the whole "is it a minivan" question: Who cares, I just passed you in the fast lane, can u see me?

Family car with style and comfort

I love our R500, it is the best ride I have ever had, however the kids always falls asleep in the back because it is so comfy. We have been on long road trips and it seems like the driver doesn't get tired at all - no noise, no vibrations, the heater and aircon is perfect - and the 8 cyl engine is fantastic. It handles like a sports sedan and is easy in traffic, We all love the ride !!!

Ok I had my R350 for 2 years now, I just recently got it out of the shop for a $10,000 repair. Cam shaft, transmission solenoid and intake replacement and some other stuff. Now I'm scared to death of seeing the check engine light come on!......all I can say about that is , don't even think about buying a mercedes without a warranty .....with that said"....the R350 is the most comfortable vehicle on the road. The fit and feel is way better than BMW or any other luxury car for that matter. It is very thirsty riding around town but for long trips I can't imagine riding in anything else. Bottom line ....the R350 is expensive , but worth it!

Love the car but hate the reliability and repairs

We have owned this car since buying it new in 2007. We have the R320CDI, which is the diesel engine. First of all the positive - we love the handling of this vehicle as compared to any SUV out there. The interior is also very nice with tons of second row space. The A/C, stereo, navigation, etc are all excellent (when they work). Problems we have had with the car and approximate costs to fix have been: - Had to have engine gaskets replaced due to leaking oil (under warranty) - Command center (radio/navigation) failed (1200 dollars) - Sensors in exhaust (800 dollars) - Air suspension failed (1200 dollars) - Rattling noise in header (wanted 1500 to 2000 dollars to diagnose and fix) - still rattling because I refuse to pay for this - Molding falling off of car (wanted 500 dollars) - refused to fix - Rear seatbelt no longer locking (750 dollars) - Replace main battery, which is not easy to replace yourself because it is under the passenger seat (500 dollars!!!!) - roof rack lock - no longer functioning - 300 dollars - leak in front light assembly - 800 dollars - etc. etc. etc. Mercedes should fix a lot of these things beyond 50,000 miles but they do not.

I purchased a 2007 R320CDI (diesel) for my wife last summer and found that MB truly makes one of the best diesel engines on the market. This vehilce is surprisingly quick for its size. I think the diesel is faster off the line than the R350. The overall fit and finish are excellent. The only change I'd make is to increase the size of the fuel tank to 24-25 gallons -- this would make the R-class the best sports touring vehicle period.

Best Kept Secret in Mercedes lineup

So far, so good. This long wheel base luxo liner fits the bill for families who need to transport 6 people but in style, not in a boxy minivan. The R350 has plenty of power and is quite sporty for its size. The handling is carlike and the seats rival Virgin Air Premium Class. The only challenge may be everyday storage and luggage space when using 3rd row. Gets lots of looks because rarely seen yet, but seems to be growing in popularity due to unique features like panorama roof and sleek lines.
