2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)

Review

I am a previous LX470 owner and I have to say there really is no SUV that compares to this car for comfort and the ride and the third row seating. I can't wait to get in my car every day and drive it! Although the nav doesn't compare to Lexus ease of use and the DVD is in a weird location for usage. I also did not realize that the non-leather seats are a bit sticky in the heat due to the fact of no ac in them. The ac works great and the stereo is better than my Lexus. The windshield wiper controls are hidden and hard to see. I kept hitting the cruise control for the first month, now I am used to it. I have never had a Mercedes so all the controls take some getting used to.

Favorite Features

3rd row seats, power liftgate, great stereo, styling, power, and ride

Suggested Improvements

I had some problems with starting the car for a few months, had to be jumped 6 times. Kids can't leave the entertainment system on or the car wont start. You have to turn it off, it doesn't turn off with the car. I had a steering wheel column module replaced because of the jump starting issues.
