Fully loaded GLE with 3.3L V-6, leather
and burlwood trim interior, plus 6-CD
changer w/upgraded sound system, VCR
(should a been DVD), power everything,
with driver seat memory, and other stuff
too numerous to mention. City mileage
improved considerably from ~15 mpg to
~20 mpg after about a year. Electronic
mileage fuel calculator is a joke, not
even accurate. No major issues thus far
-- knock on burlwood. Warranty will
expire in a couple months and I have
seen a few service advisories I would
like to get checked, such as side-window
latches that loosen, noises from rear
suspension, seat belt recall. No issues
regarding tire quality.
Nice having outside temp gauge, audio
controls on steering wheel, and a
built-in compass on rear-view mirror
(sometimes it's handy to know exactly
which direction one is traveling). The
removable and adjustable rear seating
that accomodates varying needs from
time-to-time is advantageous.
Swap speedo & tach positions for better
speedo visibility. Better formed and
cushier front seats, with better seat
belt attachment placement. Illuminated
stereo controls on steering wheel.
