Goodbye Audi
By Dan on

Vehicle

2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL350 BlueTEC 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)

Review

I had been driving an Audi a8l (2007) and a Ford escape hybrid (2008) I wanted to consolidate to 1 vehicle--it needed to be an upscale, fuel efficient, and fairly large SUV (I haave 3 dogs and no way were they getting into the Audi). I found that in 3 years my Audi had taken a $58,000 depreciation hit! Still I liked the q7 tdi, and had never owned a Mercedes--I was so put out by Audi, that I went across the street and fell in love with the gl 350 bluetec. Its sumptuous and amazingly comfortable interior, quiet, quiet ride, beautiful rear visibility and increased cargo over the q7 sold me. I love this car! I give it a thumbs up and [violative content deleted] to Audi!

Best Features

Power 3rd row seats--much more comfortable than Audi's--and completely disappear unlike the Escalade Blind Spot assist Mileage! (more than 24 mpg so far) Turning Radius Great looks (no pinched back end like Lexus and Audi) Saddle head rests in the back that so increase visibility! Cargo space

Worst Features

Towing Hitch seems to come standard--I didn't need it Bigger sun roof
