2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)
Mercedes Benz should pat themselves on the back for this one. This is my 3rd Benz and my favorite. Constantly receive compliments on the looks, both inside and out. Drives like a dream. The car is tight, quiet, comfortable, luxurious, fun, and in a league of its own. As a single dad of 2, it does everything a minivan can do, but does it with masculinity. The only negatives as others have stated is the DVD location and controls are not accessible without stopping the vehicle and pulling over (if you have little ones) and you only have access to the 3rd row from the passenger side of the vehicle. Having said that, nothing is perfect, however this sure is close.
Power folding 3rd row. Information in dash. 3rd row climate control controls. Park assist. In-dash CD changer. Great cup holders, bi-xenon headlights, blue-tooth phone.
Automatic folding 2nd row seat with driver control on dash as in GM's. Front placement of DVD. Dual side rear seat entry. More user friendly Command system.
