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

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.

L-o-v-e I-t! — I love my R-Class & the fact that it's not a station wagon or mommy van (yuck)! It's comfy, lot's of utility, not a monstrosity like those hunks of unrefined metal made by American & Asian automakers. My R-Class was purchased because we needed something that would comfortably fit our two sons & dog, all of which are quite large. We 've had it for almost 4 years now & although I'm due for an upgrade & not sure if I'll be heading to my MBZ dealer.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great car, utility, appearance, safety, value

Cons: can't think of one?

Great Commuter Hauler And For Long Trips — The 3.6 l V-6 is strong for a 6, braking is good and the uphill brake lock is fantastic to prevent downhill slide. The roominess is the best in class. i can sit in the back seat at 6'2" Milage is not great because of the engine to weight ration but still gets about 21 combined. DVD with wireless headphones keeps children quiet on long trips. 3 zone air. 6 adults to meeting commutes is great and aback two rows fold for transporting "stuff"

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: roominess

Cons: large and not the AMG version

You Won't Regret Driving Or Owning An R-class — All wheel drive, comfortable, well appointed, rare (less than 100K on the road in US), plenty of power, great travel car. Came from 4 Chrysler minivans, this is easily twice the car in every aspect except raw storage space. Very worth a look.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: AWD, Solid Build, 22mpg freeway

Cons: Moderate City MPG

Great Cross-over — The styling is great. The interior is as quiet as when I bought it. The 3rd row seats are designed for adults to use, not just kids under 5 years old. Its a very reliable car with just regular scheduled maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love the interior space
Great utility for hauling large items

Cons: Large rear doors can cause door dings
