I was uneasy at first due to the overall weight of the car. However, the car got a legitimate 20.1 MPG with the 5.0 V8. It rode quiet and comfortable at a cruise engaged speed at 75 MPH. I have no regrets in buy a nice , safe car to carry my Grandkids in.

My Favorite Vehicle To Drive — I love this car! From the comfort of the seats to its ability to take on the snow and the open roads. It has dvd players for the kids and beautiful sounding speakers to rock out to. While on road trips, the car loves the highway. I had to check my speed often as this girl likes to go. The cruise control is a must for road trips. I was doing 100 mph and it didnt feel as such! The car handles nicely. I feel safe and secure driving the kids around. I would like to add a back up camera as its a little long but not too bad. Love that it automatically adjusts for steep incline/declines on its on. Amazing vehicle with the horse power to match. This is not a mini van at all!! Love my sports wagon.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great for Family, cargo and Long Road Trips!

Cons: Air ride suspension goes out and need replacing every 1 to 2 years ($2500) panoramic sunroof fails and needs new motor ($3000)

Best Car I've Owned And Met My Crazy & Unique Needs On All Levels Of Function And Fun. — Love just about everything with this car. Has great storage capacity. Lots of flexible seating arrangements to comfortably fit 6 adults or 4 kids in car seats with easy access to the seats/buckles, lots of cargo room when back row (or only 1 seat) isn't needed, best looking station wagon in existence! All the Mercedes luxuries are always a plus, as well as knowing this car will run forever if well maintained. Handles really well in snow with 4-matic four wheel drive and can even raise the car 6" if in some really deep snow. Tons of power - have option to drive "sport" or "comfort" - luxury at its best. First look at the huge dual moon roofs and I was in love - even before I saw how all the seats could move around. Safety was also very important to us when we bought this car knowing we'd be driving precious cargo around (pregnant with first child when bought this) and Mercedes never disappoints!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very versatile care with lots of options for seating and storing.  I have 3 kids ages 3 and under and trying to access car seat buckles for each, while still getting a double wide jogging stroller in the back - pretty impressive.  Has a V8 engine with a kick.  Can also shift gears on the steering wheel (like in race cars) so my husband didn't have to feel like  he was driving a station wagon.

Cons: the doors are really large so trying to squeeze a pregnant body and a toddler out of the car in a tight parking spot were never easy.  now I understand why mini vans have sliding doors.  If you move to a new area and don't know a good Mercedes mechanic, you have to pay dealer prices (over inflated) to have any work done

Spacious, Luxurious, Reliable High End Family Car With Lots Of Room — Originally leased the R for 27 months - but loved it so much bought it at lease end and have owned it for over 7 years. Inside it is like any other high end Mercedes, but has extra space for passengers and cargo. Great all wheel drive, smooth ride.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The 2006 was the only year with the smooth and powerful V-8.  The 2+2+2 seating makes this car a comfortable and spacious ride for 6 adults.  2nd row is very spacious.

Cons: The exterior seems a little too much like a hearse - but as long as you skip the black exterior its not an issue!

Perfect Sports Car For The Family — love the handling and look and feel of this car. great for cruising around town, hauling kids and lacrosse gear and heading up to the mountains for snow skiing and snow boarding. very safe, great gas mileage and awesome sound system.

Pros: Great handling and looks good too

Cons: pretty long for parking in small spots

Overall:

Stylish, Fast, Comfortable Sports Crossover — Liked seating, trim, options, speed, ride, quality of build and looks. Economy could be better but pretty good on a long run. Loves long distances and eats up the miles on my Seattle to Spokane runs. Tires are quiet, great grip and low noise, but I only use Michelin, which are almost $350 each, but still expensive.

Pros: Comfortable, fast, quiet, high quality trim, tons of options, massive space and great vision and seating.

Cons: Maintenance costly, less reliable than a Mercedes should be. V8 engine immense, but no longer available in the R Class.

Amazing Car You Would Expect From A Mercedes — This car is exactly what we were looking for a family of 5. The design and style is classic Mercedes. Each seat is comforable, handles like a dream, and the family travels comfortable, safe, and stylish. I would highly recommend this vehicle to family and friends.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great familiy car with a lot of room.  Allows our young family to grow.

Cons: Turning radius is a problem for the wife.
