2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


Well, I wrote a review and was very pleased after 3 weeks. After a year, I had to get rid of, because I could not stand the tire/suspension problems. Car pulls badly to the right. Dealer says, "Oh, that's just the crown in the road causing that." No way! Wore out tires at 16000 miles and needs an alignment every 3 months. Car gets aligned, and runs true for a few months before starting to pull again. Sorry I ever doubted BMW. Do yourself a favor. Check out the driving characteristics first. If you go on the Mecedes forums, you will see many have the same disappointment.

Best Features

Luxurious quiet ride and feel, and so much power! Will out accelerate a Cadillac Escalade. Lots of room and great looks. The education it gave me to go back to BMW.

Worst Features

Fix wheel alignment issues for good. Don't leave it to dealership to cover up with "That's how they all run." A Mercedes should not pull and only hold an alignment for 2-3 months.
