About Mercedes-Benz R500

As a model of the Mercedes-Benz R-Class, which was the first full-size multi-purpose vehicle produced by Mercedes-Benz and was several cars rolled into one, Mercedes-Benz R500 was built by the DaimlerChrysler from 2005 to 2007 as a full-size CUV (Crossover Utility Vehicle) and Large MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle). Originally introduced as a model of the R-Class lineup, R500 was only available for about two model years. For the 2008 model year, the R500 was discontinued due to soft sales.
Mercedes-Benz R500 made its debut at the 2005 New York International Auto Show for the 2006 model year when the R-Class was also introduced. It was offered in only one body style, 5-door station wagon and came in only one trim level. Equipped with 18-inch wheels, driver seat memory, heated front seats, burl walnut wood trim, TeleAid emergency call system, a glovebox-mounted six-CD changer, leather seating, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, full power accessories, CD player with an auxiliary MP3 jack, and optional HID headlights with corner-adaptive lighting, two different sunroof designs, heated rear seats, satellite radio, a rear-seat entertainment system, a power liftgate, a navigation system with a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, remote entry/start, Keyless Go and Airmatic air suspension, Mercedes-Benz R500 had been powered by a 5.0 L V8 good for 302 hp and 339 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through a 7-speed automatic transmission to four wheels.

Mercedes-Benz R500 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Combining the best features of a car, a minivan and a sport utility vehicle, Mercedes-Benz R500 is definitely a good choice for many car enthusiasts. But since the youngest R500 now is at least ten years old, you had better be prepared for these common problems on it:
First, according to the reliable car repair statistics site repairpal.com, rough shifting of the automatic transmission is the most common problem the Mercedes-Benz R500 drivers have ever met during driving. Even though you have not enough knowledge about the working principles of the automobile, you must be aware that it is the transmission failure. As the important system to transfer power from the engine to moving forces, the working condition of the transmission system should always be kept in the best shape. Some experienced R500 drivers said that apart from rough shifting, this problem often starts with clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, leaking transmission fluids and the indicator not matching the gear; gradually, the transmission may slip or surge and the vehicle will start in another gear or refuse to go into any gear. All these symptoms could be attributed to the R500 transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork.
Second, no start is another common symptom appearing on Mercedes-Benz R500 according to the experienced drivers. This is a typical symptom of the engine failure, which is often seen as the omen of the vehicle breaking down. In fact, apart from starting issues, R500 drivers said that when the engine starts to fail, it will first make some noises to attract your attention, then performance issues including misfiring and stalling will arise. Finally, before the vehicle breaks down completely, it will first suffer from a drastic decrease in power, acceleration and fuel economy. Once the Check Engine Light comes on, you should inspect if the R500 oil filter, spark plug, engine control module, oxygen sensor, air filter, fuel pump, exhaust manifold gasket and valve cover gasket are working properly or not.
However, you also should attach enough importance to the routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Mercedes-Benz R500 if you want to enjoy only pleasure on it. Parts including R500 seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight should be maintained routinely considering their important roles in creating a safe and comfortable driving environment although under harsh working conditions.
