We had a suspension air bag replaced. All four rear seats fold down individually; flip over all four, and the inevitable 4x8-foot sheet of plywood should fit. At speeds of 77 mph or above, the air suspension drops the ride height a half-inch. Why has Mercedes not issued a recall regarding this problem? Happened once again this time they changed the computer and the car showed airbag leaking. After a day or so sitting in the garage gets back to normal.
The Mercedes Benz manufacturer is aware of these problems but have not taking responsibility to create a recall. I can't tell how much money I spent so far in this vehicle and I can't believe that there's no recalls so far. I took it to a local shop that specializes only on Mercedes Benz and he's having a hard time figure out what's the problem. And I pulled it over and found that the tires are fine but the vehicle leaned on the right side. Car can not be driven. Steering is rack and pinion and offers a solid on-center feel with just the right amount of boost. Let's just agree that the R-Class is, for a somewhat traditional company like Mercedes, a departure.
I took the car back and was told it was a part defect and they replaced it at no charge to my warranty company. The R-Class comes with eight cupholders and four door-pocket bottle holders--a total of two per occupant. My car has only 70K miles on it. The air bags in the back were replaced also when I took it in before. These times represent good acceleration, considering that the engine is powering all four wheels full-time, and that the R-Class is no lightweight: The R350 tips the scales at 4750 pounds and the R500 weighs 4850. Gauges are well-placed; controls are mostly intuitive.
I cannot understand why the maker have not recalled it. My warrant paid to have the vehicle repaired and the part was replaced. I took the car to have it diagnosed and was told it was the rear air spring suspension. The automatic suspension on the vehicle was uneven. There are three open differentials--front, center, and rear--with torque distribution 50 percent to the front, 50 percent to the rear, in typical driving conditions. She took it in and serviceadvisor drove around with her and said he feels it.
The R350's interior is nicely executed; upholstery is leather, with maple or burled-walnut wood and aluminum trim. Coupled with electronic traction control, stability control, brake assist, and four-wheel discs with anti-lock, the integrated safety system is as seamless as it gets. The automatic suspension on the vehicle was uneven. Took to mb dealer they said it was the suspension this passenger?? The standard sound system has eight speakers, with an 11-speaker system as an option. This acknowledgement constitutes my written consent to receive such communications.
No to mention the problems with the balance shaft and intake manifold issue as well as a air suspension problem. In most every sense, the unibody R-Class is an all-new model. Besides all the electronic safety equipment designed to prevent collisions, there are standard side-curtain airbags for all three rows. The failure mileage was approximately 50,000. The passenger seat assembly has also been repaired since I've had this vehicle.
We'd suggest it might be a segment-buster--but that's how 's marketing types labeled the Pacifica at its introduction. Drove a couple of miles and it did same thing. The failure mileage was 60,000. Adding to the interior ambiance is an optional conventional sunroof, which is nice, but a panoramic glass sunroof that's more than five-and-a-half feet long also is optional. Something is also going on underneath the vehicle which has caused my front tires to suddenly bald severely without warning.
The contact stated the automatic suspension on the vehicle was uneven. The Mercedes Benz manufacturer is aware of these problems but have not taking responsibility to create a recall. I took it to the dealership and have replaced several parts including sensors and valves but after a few weeks, it goes back to the same problem. I'm scared to travel with my kids and grand kids in the car. Mercedes won't say how many copies of the R-Class it'll have to sell to meet target. Who's going to buy the R-Class? All prices and specifications are subject to change without notice.
