Mercedes R-Class Was Pulled Out from the US

The Mercedes R-Class is a wonderful car, no doubt about that. With a V6 engine, lovely leather interiors and all-wheel drive, which translates to power and luxury what more can you ask for? However, in the highly competitive US market, these characteristics actually became problems. Not that Americans don’t like the car, it’s just that great features comes with an even greater price tag. Starting at $52,690, the R350 4Matic and the R350 BlueTec diesel with a tag of $53,840, it only managed to attract about 300 buyers. Mercedes spokesman Christian Bokich said the version is not working in the market, “to the extent that we can no longer make… Continue Reading »

Mercedes-Benz has just issued a recall on these models due to leakage problems on their fuel filters. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there is an o-ring on the fuel system that may not have been lubricated and installed properly, thus causing fuel to spill out. The recall bulletin from NHTSA provides specific details on diesel variants of these models, but our friends over at The Car Connection says otherwise, confirming that the problem affects gasoline variants as well.

The 2011 R-Class facelifted

People buy cars for different reasons—some for mere aesthetics, others for sporty performance—while others for mere comfort. Put all three and you get the characteristics of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Of course, if you’re both a wife of a busy CEO and the mother of three wonderfully active tenderfoots, then you’ll be better off driving an MPV—short for Multi-Purpose Vehicle—so they’ll have enough space to run about. Just make sure they’re strapped securely when you’re mobile. Put both words—Mercedes-Benz and MPV together—and you get the R-Class. The 2011 model gets a redefined and totally aggressive front end, a smoother rear end and an attractive and totally teched out gauge cluster. A… Continue Reading »
