    Any Problems with the R? Think about buying a used one - Mercedes-Benz Forum

    Facebook Google Remember Me? Think about buying a used one. Reply Page 1 of 2 1 2. Any Problems with the R? Hi Fellow MB'ers I have an 97 E, and thinking about buying a used R for the extra room for a growing family. I had a few known issues with the 97 E, but I don't see many known issues on the R models.

    So I wanted to ask if any fellow members notice any issues with any R models? The diesel engine has fewer issues then the gas models, but do command a price premium. The rest of vehicle is well built but they do have a ton of electronics and do dads so the potential is there for some financial pain. If your shy about repair bills make sure you have a commited dealer and warranty on the vehicle before you buy, in other words don't buy one where your not going to service it or the warranty will mean nothing!

    You can read up on a lot of issues on the forum here, but I still bought one after reading up on them and love it! The most potentially costly is the R, which has what is termed a 'balance shaft' issue. There is much information out there about this and the problem is not the balance shaft, but the sprocket bolted to the end of the shaft.

    MB made the same, 'stupid' design mistake as did GM about 20 years ago. They coated the sprocket teeth with plastic for quiet and wear. This applies to M engines across the MB line, from to There are websites that have the range of engine numbers with the issue. Some dealers will run your VIN and tell you if are subject to the issue. The sprocket plastic can fail, which throws off eng timing, sets codes, and allows accerralted wear rates of the sprocket.

    I an whistling by the graveyard to say that I don't have it 'yet' at 90k miles on an ' MB made a running change in the sprocket design to correct the issue. R had a similar issue with a sprocket, but not as expensive. Last edited by ITboater; at Make sure you get a good extended warranty. You'll probably need it and it will probably pay for itself.

    Visit a Lincoln Dealer and check out a Lincoln MKT, which is a clone of the R, but more luxurious, with more power features, including adaptive cruise radar ranges to car ahead , which MB does not yet offer on the R-Class.

    It is stunningly fast, much faster than my R, but almost dead silent like the R I hit mph so fast, it was startling, but yet it handled well I thought and the body is very tight and has a high body ring tone over bumps, which is a sign of a very solid monoqouque body. My wife loves the R-Class, but fell in love with the MKT, with the refrig in the console between the heated back seats!

    I am giving it very serious consideration; thought I'd never hear myself say that. Then find the youtube about the total abuse Ford gave a random off the line ecoboost engine, for k miles equivalent. Public tear down show almost no wear! Included 24hrs pulled a rated max load trailer around a Nascar track, at full engine rpm, with only driver changes. Was like the good old days, when MB used to pull that off, but you never hear of them doing that anymore. Last edited by R; at We've owned our 06 for a few years now.

    Valve body went bad almost immediately. Had issues with some electonics due to a plugged drain at the firewall. Recently, the rear air bags. Other than that, not bad at all. Doesn't get the greatest gas mileage. My E55 AMG does better 21mpg avg.! I think you get either one that is problematic or one that is pretty decent.
