Not surprisingly, this big Benz has been a favorite of ours ever since it debuted two years ago. Max wading depth 600mm 23. This one is the very best. We had lots safety recalls with the airbags, but Mercedes has failed to do anything to replace them and keep pushing it off claiming that they do not have the parts to replace it and because of these recall no dealer is able to resell the vehicle till Mercedes fixes the issue making it nearly a worthless suv. Price is a consideration, too.
All models are equipped with a seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Driving in Phx I get 23 in town and 28 on the highway. North Coast Auto Mall sets out to offer all clients great prices, flexible financing terms, high quality vehicles, and a thoroughly transparent buying process. The Bluetec model's cleaner emissions allow it to be 50-state legal. To me, the colors clash and make the interior look downmarket. Comand can be and should be much easier to use.

It is a shame that a 70K+ 4X4 of the year is basically a kia with a mercedes star on it. On the freeway, it handles better than most sedans. It handles more like a car than a truck, and it has good steering and braking feel. Also, it is fun to drive. On my 63-mile commute, at times I could swear I could see the gas gauge needle slowly moving toward empty. The Bluetec model's cleaner emissions allow it to be 50-state legal. With the second- and third-row seats lowered, 83 cubic feet of cargo volume are available -- that's far fewer cubes than in competing models like the Escalade, but it's likely sufficient for most buyers.
The 320 comes standard with diesel power and 20-inch wheels, while the 450 boasts a V8 but downsizes to 19-inch wheels. The flush-folding rear headrests are also a nice touch, as they improve the driver's rearward vision an innovation missing on Benz's R-Class. We do, however, like the one-touch up and down function on all four windows. Its colors, fonts, and layout remind me of something designed using text boxes and the rectangle drawing tool in Microsoft Word. Financing is available for all credit situations.
Its size makes it very maneuverable and easy to drive for such a large vehicle. The rearview mirrors were made larger in 2009. This specific interior color scheme — two shades of brown — is a common theme in Mercedes vehicles of late that I, for one, find unappealing. Great design and build quality. The Benz is also pleasantly quiet on the highway, with minimal wind and road noise.
So far 7,800 miles without a single problem, nothing. The seats are supportive and comfortable and appear to be infinitely adjustable. If Audi had more room in the back of the Q7 I would be driving that instead. Ramp breakover angle 23 degrees Max. The running boards are nicely integrated into the body and the non-slip nubs look really cool.
Odometer is 77643 miles below market average! Console armrest does not adjust up and down? Aluminum cylinder head S Fuel economy city 17 mpg Torque 398 lbs. I do like the analog-esque radio tuner graphic though, which was panned by Eric. Got an extend warranty for the car and glad we did. Ok I admit my bias here. I am not a fan of the Mercedes navigation system interface, though. The heated seats warm up quickly and then automatically adjust from the highest setting to the middle setting. The 4x4 of the year can not sustain a small bump from the side walk curve without busting its air- suspension module.
Engine horsepower 210-hp 3,800 rpm Interior cargo volume 14. Please call us today to begin your purchase! It employs awkward push-buttons on a center-stack-mounted circular control pad instead of the console-mounted control wheel used in the C-Class and S-Class. Not bad, just not as good as Mercedes should be. I pull a large tent trailer with a gross of 5,000lbs with no problem. The heating package adds a heated steering wheel and rear seats, while the full-leather package upgrades the already well-crafted interior.
