We replaced a 2007 Honda Pilot who's lease was maturing. Couldn't pass up the deal. Lower payment than a new Pilot or Pathfinder do to MB's year end event and a much higher residual. Couldn't be happier so far. True German engineering and craftsmanship. Plenty of power and room for a family of four. Looks great in Capri Blue with a tan interior. It has the P1 package which includes NAV, power liftgate, etc, heated seats, running boards and the dual dvds for the kids. Perfect fit and finish with high end materials. NAV, bluetooth, etc. aren't as intuitive as my Infinity but got used to it. This truck is a tank in the snow...handles much better than the Pilot did!
The look and feel of the truck, steering wheel controlled Command System for everything from the phone and radio to the NAV system, power lift gate, standard 19" wheels, standard aluminum undertrim front and back, IPOD interface, great heated seats, backup camera, rear DVD, 25 gallon fuel tank.
Bigger glove box (can barely fit owners manual package) and more storage in the rear seat...there is nowhere to store the headphones or remote controls for the DVD system.
