GL 320 CDI (Would not reccomend)
By john on


2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


The GL 320 is a very nice carin performance, luxury, fun, safety, fuel economy, and design. Accelerating onto the freeway it will go faster than a Chevy Suburban because of the 398ft lbs of torque. The luxury amentities are outstanding. Safety, we took this car onto a muddy road with ice, snow, and potholes. Honestly, I would rather be in that car than any other. Car looks very nice except the mirrors (too small). We got 32 MPG one time on the highway. Car is fun to drive and handle. I have had a lot of problems though.The shock on a rear tire had to be replaced 9000 miles. The computer that tells the low oil and stuff needed to be replaced 11000 miles. Sucked up oil because of a ripped line 7000 mi.

Favorite Features

Headlights are incredibly bright. Keyless go is very nice. AC cools down from 110 to 68 in 10 min. (live in Arizona)Suspension is great. Engine is fast and fuel conservative, quiet. Interior lighting is plentiful. Rear seat entertanment is good. Safety features aregood. Park assist is helpful. Great car in features

Suggested Improvements

Tires and oil are terrible. The low oil light comes on over 70MPH 1000-11000mi. The tires were wrong size when car was bought. Mirrors are too small. Car is assembled poorly. When bought many things were not working properly (air shocks, AC) many more to list. Would not buy again!
