I traded an 07 Lex GX 470

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


I traded in my Lexus with only 14 K miles. I just stopped to look at the new GL class as we wanted a larger vehicle. I am very very impresed. Don't let the low entry price of the 320 fool you, mine decked was 74 K. Was it worth it yes. I can't advise on long term reliability or build, but for 2 months my judgment indicates MB is back. I get 26 miles to the gal. I towed my boat yesterday ( 5K lbs ) no problem. Yes I am very happy except 1. outside mirrors too small, the cruise control is in the wrong place, add easy exit seats that more back and down ( like cad escalade ) plenty of power, 26 mpg, full time 4wd .

Best Features

The diesel motor that allows a big suv to get 25 plus mpg and have the guts to pull 7500 lbs. I have tried this and it does as it says, also you will notice no noise of a diesel motor. I carry disposable plastic gloves in the door to avoid the diesel smell . Starts right away, no wait no smoke

Worst Features

Move the cc lever . Have the seats easy exit. Add blue tooth for free( this is an 75,000.00 car. Don't tell us what the floor mats cost. You have a great vehicle on your hands, if a problem comes up, do the right thing. That way you can be proud of your product for many years
