Question about 2007 Mercedes-Benz R500
What is this car like?
Whenever I am tasked with driving the Mercedes-Benz R500, I am reminded of the Dennis Miller phrase, "I rant, therefore I am." I try so hard to have something nice to say about this car, but I simply can't. It drives like a building, it's as cute as a warthog, and mostly , it tries to do too much and doesn't do any of it particularly well. I have mentioned this before, but it bugged me last night. It's the damn hatch in the back. Opens via key fob (presumably designed for target-demo mother whose hands are presumably too full of cell phone, lipstick and possibly a young'un to actually open the thing itself). Then you push the red button and it closes automatically. Problem is, roughly 2 out of 3 times, it doesn't close tight, the dash warning light goes on, you have to get out and open it again (to the sound of that incredibly loud industrial-dump-truck-backing-up beep) and slam it again.
