"We had never heard of this model until I ran across it on an internet car search. We researched the car, checked problems reported, watched you tubes about it and decided that buying the MB R350 model year 2009-2013 should be a safe choice based on our research. Thus far, the car has been very enjoyable. A smooth luxurious comfortable ride with plenty of room for family and cargo. So many features that we are still learning them all. "
