Big Disappointment!! by Sam from TN on 06/30/2012. Trim: 2012 Mercedes-Benz R-Class R350 4MATIC, Owned 1 year.
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.

From the Test Track
The three-row R-Class shares the same AWD platform with the M-Class. Access is easy and room for six is very good, but the long rear doors easily bump into adjacent vehicles. The ride is comfortable and quiet, but handling is not sporty. A 3.5-liter V6 and a diesel are the only engines offered. The R-Class was dropped after 2012.
