Good looks - Inferior Quality Electronic

Vehicle

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

Review

My spouse & I both own SUVs. He drives a Lexus GX470 and I the GL450. The GL450 is a competent vehicle with ample cargo capacity for transporting our large dogs & medical equip. However, I have had to make numerous trips to the dealership to remedy electronic and suspension issues. I do feel very safe inside the vehicle. However, I must admit that my husband's Lexus seems to handle the snow better than my GL and his vehicle has been completely problem free. I have trepidations regarding the cost of maintaining and repairing this vehicle once the warranty expires. The Navigation system and bluetooth integration are vastly inferior to the Lexus.

Favorite Features

Ride, cargo space, acceleration, handling are all good. Not as smooth a ride as the Lexus GX470, but still good.

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage poor. Electronic system of inferior quality. Navigation system archaic (takes 2-3 times longer to input address then with a Lexus system). Side mirrors too small. Seats too firm. For this price I should not expect frequent visits to the repair shop. Study Lexus electronics and improve
