2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Diesel GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

My GL has been into the dealer's not less that four times in under 30,000km, mainly for suspension problems. In this distance I already have had both front and rear shocks changed and whatever else could be changed down there to reduce vibrations, road noise & wheel-bouncing. Rear windscreen wiper blade fell off just a few weeks into car's first rainy season & I ended up with a scratched rear screen. Vibrations have not stopped & make the car unpleasant to drive. Windows shake (ever so slightly, but you hear the click-click all the time you go over a bump). I have since learned that MB has used the same suspension components which are fitted on the ML! (GL is wider though). Anyone out there?


Favorite Features

The car looks great, fuel economy, commendable. Very comfortable to drive, but rear seats lack flexibility&remain in an almost upright position. I think on a car this size, those seats should go all the way back, especially when rear seats are down flat, more so when you are going far with the kids.


Suggested Improvements

MB. the suspension on my car is totally inadequate. Changing shocks has not fixed it. How about redesigning the suspension completely the way you did with the A Class when it failed the buck test?

Review

Own this 13 months, bought brand new. Just completed 50k miles, had no problems. Excellent drive. With this size of SUV mileage is very good 24- 25MPG, perfect for the highway. Owned several SUVs but I think this is the best and think it will last forever. MB has really improved there product. We are very happy.


Favorite Features

Seats, including the third row seats, are very comfortable. Everything you touch is top quality. All rear seats fold flat. Auto tailgate and power fold-down rear seats. Air suspension.


Suggested Improvements

Larger side view mirrors. Easier user interface for navigation

Review

Owned this 07 GL320 CDI for 15 months. Overall fuel efficiency has been 22.7 mpg through 20500 miles. On the highway, we've gotten up to 28 mpg, and always 20+ around town. Very comfortable on long trips or short commutes. Handled heavy winter snowfall in Spokane and North Idaho with ease. Couple of items to be aware of when purchasing. Uses synthetic Mobil 1, so oil changes are every 10- 12k. Oil light comes on occassionally. Dealer states it's a computer glitch that hasn't yet been corrected. OE tires (we have Continental 4x4 Contact 18") are worn out and need to be replaced.


Favorite Features

Great ride. Great handling. Goes a long, long way between fill-ups!


Suggested Improvements

Tires wear out at 15-20k, and cost about $1k to replace! Fix the oil monitor - gives false 'add oil' warnings.

Review

Excellent vehicle, needs air pressure to read actual pressure in all tires. Very expensive to maintain. Mercedes does unneccessary things on scheduled manintaince such as check caliper thickness at 10,000 miles. Navigation system is one of the worst in the business but not the cheapest. 19 inch tires and wheels are a joke because the tires cost 3 times as much as 18 or 20 inch. MB tech fake leather is very bad stuff. Blue jeans stain it and it does not breath like leather. Pulls very nice and the brake intregation system is superb but far to pricey.Garage door opener works only on occasion. Very weak signal. All in all it is a very nice vehicle but MB has made it far to expensive to maintain


Favorite Features

An absolutely wonderful driving machine. The CDI gets wonder mileage and has great torque for pulling. 7 speed transmission is a dream to drive. Seat heaters work to perfection. Power fold down seats are very nice. Third seat room is the terrific. Engine is quiet and smooth.


Suggested Improvements

Self leveling lights move to quickly and make peole think you are giving them the brights. Need to have the ability to raise vehicle at all speeds espesially when going through snow. Needs 4 low. Vehicle chases around on ice I do not know if this is because of traction control or toe in problems.

Review

I just bought this used with 10K. It got 23 miles per gallon on average, and I drive crazily. Get the diesel, it's quiet, quick (enough) and should last forever


Favorite Features

Everything is as it should be


Suggested Improvements

Like everybody says, but at least the p01 pkg as standard, but again, there is a price point i'm sure they're trying to maintain, as well to attract tahoe and, sequoia and the likes. I think it's a deal for such an amazing vehicle, and would pay 10K more for it...honestly
