OUTSTANDING VEHICLE. MB QUALITY IS UNBEATABLE. by Jay-Vee in TX on 09/04/2009. Trim: 2006 Mercedes-Benz R350, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: UNIQUE STYLING - I don't pass one every 5 mins.; COMFORT - No better way to transport our family, especially on long trips; FIT & FINISH - MB appoints quality products on the interior, no cheap plastic or minimal telemetry on the instrument cluster; POWER - Even with the smaller 3.5 V6, car has power to spare. I passed a slower car on a recent road trip & shot from 75 to 95 without even feeling a change in the car's behavior. The car had plenty more to give. The 7-speed transmission means downshifting can be done flawlessly, not to mention the manual shift buttons I have on the steering wheel.
Cons: Would like to see more standard equipment at this price point.
Overall review: My family & I love this car. We bought it used at an unbeatable price ($25999 with 20,000 miles). On long trips, each kid has room to relax and watch the DVD. I love the auxilary connection in the glove box for our IPod. The car is sturdy and safe (airbags everywhere). MB quality is not exaggerated. This is our first of many MB's, used E-Class will be next.
