Big Disappointment!! by Sam from TN on 06/30/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4MATIC, Owned 1 year.
2
Pros: loved the way it drove, very comfortable
Cons: loved the way it drove, when it did DRIVE. poor suspension system in this model. back shocks go out too quick, had 60,000 miles and they went one at a time. then the transmission started slipping and electrical issues came up. very dissapointing, always in the shop, we had to sell.
Overall review: doesn't seem like they put the "mercedes" touch mechanically in this model.

Style, Comfort Function. by Brad on 03/05/2013. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4MATIC, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: Great looks, lots of style for a people hauler. I think is still 1 of the best looking front ends of the Mercedes lineup. Comfortable, good quality; like that it is built in Alabama (yes I know the parts come from Germany..). The all glass roof is a wonder of the auto industry; I'm still amazed at it & how there's little inconvenience from it; doesn't add to cabin noise, no mechanical issues, you don't get baked in the sun. The middle row seats are comfortable, kids fight to sit in those seats instead of calling for shotgun.
Cons: As it's intended, not a ton of room, if you have 6 people in there then you'll only have room for a few school sized backpacks. The 350, is a little hesitant with the weight it is pushing around. I would go with the R500 next time.
Overall review: Great car, gets a lot of looks; not a ton of them on the street. Fun car to drive. No competition that give this type of style, functionability and comfort.

Love it! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/14/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 BlueTEC 4MATIC, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: The room of a minivan without the look. Very comfortable. It has all the things I need for someone that drives 40,000 miles per year. My kids 12 and 16 love it for the space too. Alot of legroom for my tall kids.
Cons: That 2012 is the last year it will be available in the US. I would continue to buy this car in the future. I am a devoted Mercedes owner.
Overall review: Nicest car for Mom!
