#12 of 14 Vibrations, Tingling Sensation on my R-350 pedals
Jul 04, 2007 (8:54 am)
I have a loaded R-350 2007 and after 2000 miles I noticed a lot of vibrations on the gas pedal when shifting between low gears and a tingling sensation when cruising betw 0-70 MPH. Dealer claims it is symptomatic of the R class because of its unibody build. I am still disputing the problems. The tingling sensation is killing me and my wife has refused to drive the car. It is not fair for a new car, much less from Mercedes. Anyone out there with the same issues? Help me out.

#14 of 14 2008 R350 Transmission blows up at ~35K

We were driving back after driving ~15miles and suddenly we hear a loud thud noise while in mid of a Highway.
The gas pedal wont respond and fortunately could safely park on the left shoulder and had to be towed to a dealer.
The dealer quoted $5200 for rebuilding the transmission. They found metal particles in the transmission fluid.
Apparently looks like a manufacturing defect. Just came off of Warranty 4 mths back and had just completed the payments last month. Good coincidence.
To top it all, during the recent oil change with the same dealer, the windshield and Coolant fluids were seen empty and warnings on coolant showed up.
Contacted MB, got the same offer . No additional response. Appreciate any suggestion and if someone had faced similar issue.
A new transmission would cost ~7000+.
