Just took delivery of our 2010 GL450 - Did TONS of research, priced out every local dealer, looked at many other brands and vehicles over the past year (yes, i am thorough. We are SO happy we got the MB. I read all these reviews too - It deserves the 9.8 it is rated. Car is beautiful, drives like a dream and hauls 'you know what' on the road. Fits my 3 kids, car seats and all our stuff (which is a lot!). The voice command radio and nav is terrific, not too hard to use like others have said (you just need to get used to it).Love the automatic seats in the 3rd row, love th satilite NAV (not a disk that needs to be updated),love the bluetooth linked phone - Buy this car -you won't regret it
All voice commands (phone,radio,nav) harddrive for CDs, 3 sep. DVD screens for 3 movies(had mine put in headrests!), speed and pick up, handling, heat and heated seats work great - Car is great, so far so good!
Easier to access 3rd row - bit of a pain to lift up 2nd row seat, gas mileage is poor,touch screen NAV would be good but with voice you don't really need it
