Our first Mercedes-Benz
By KBKBDB on
2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL550 4dr SUV AWD (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
So far, so good. We were in the market for a SUV. Test drove the Acura MDX, BMW X5 4.8i, and the GL. We were impressed by all three vehicles but ultimately the GL was the way to go--truly appreciate the usable third row seats.
Our favorite features include the safety features, style inside and out, powerful V-8, ride comfort, multi- contour seats, Mark Levinson stereo, i- pod connection, backup camera, DVD player, and the overall feel at highway speeds. Plus it is easy to manuever around town.
Larger exterior mirrors, real-time navigation and wireless headsets would be nice improvements.
