2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


Review

Great driver, fun with plenty of power and comfortable. Good styling, controls are easy to use. It's really a joy to drive. Really disappointed in the quality of the tires-25K and they needed replacing. But the real disappointment is the quality and longevity of the brake pads and rotors. Had to replace both rotors and pads at 27K, unbelievable! You expect much more/better quality from a Mercedes Benz, especially under the mild driving conditions (Speed) in the USA vs the German autobahn. The dealer indicated they have changed material to a softer variation, ostensibly to resolve the squeaking issues that I have read about, but they have done this at significant reliabilty and customer cost


Best Features

Drives extremely well, steering is excellent, engine has adequate power and is very responsive.


Worst Features

Fix the brakes!

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

Own this 13 months, bought brand new. Just completed 50k miles, had no problems. Excellent drive. With this size of SUV mileage is very good 24- 25MPG, perfect for the highway. Owned several SUVs but I think this is the best and think it will last forever. MB has really improved there product. We are very happy.


Best Features

Seats, including the third row seats, are very comfortable. Everything you touch is top quality. All rear seats fold flat. Auto tailgate and power fold-down rear seats. Air suspension.


Worst Features

Larger side view mirrors. Easier user interface for navigation

Review

I loved this car from the minute we saw it. We were planning to buy Ford or Chevy, but once we stopped at the Mercedes dealer, we couldn't leave without this car. It is an absolute pleasure to drive. We had to have a rear shock replaced, but no other problems after 20 months. Brake pads were worn out after only 15,000 miles which was a shock and disappointment, especially when we found out the cost to replace them. Apparently this is normal for Mercedes brakes. It's a great car, but expensive maintenance.


Best Features

3rd row flat fold and 3rd row leg room, overall quality, great acceleration, smooth ride, parking sensors are great, A/C gets cold instantly even on hottest days, overall interior comfort.


Worst Features

Plastic inserts in seats don't stay put and get lost, cruise lever too close to turn signal, 3rd row air vents s/b standard, high maintenance costs, 2nd row seats should have auto fold, power points should remain on when car is off for charging cell phones, pockets on back of front seats are flimsy.

2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

Owned this 07 GL320 CDI for 15 months. Overall fuel efficiency has been 22.7 mpg through 20500 miles. On the highway, we've gotten up to 28 mpg, and always 20+ around town. Very comfortable on long trips or short commutes. Handled heavy winter snowfall in Spokane and North Idaho with ease. Couple of items to be aware of when purchasing. Uses synthetic Mobil 1, so oil changes are every 10- 12k. Oil light comes on occassionally. Dealer states it's a computer glitch that hasn't yet been corrected. OE tires (we have Continental 4x4 Contact 18") are worn out and need to be replaced.


Best Features

Great ride. Great handling. Goes a long, long way between fill-ups!


Worst Features

Tires wear out at 15-20k, and cost about $1k to replace! Fix the oil monitor - gives false 'add oil' warnings.

Review

I have to admit that I never knew this model existed. The room in this Mercedes GL has it all over the ML. The quality is light-years ahead of the Escalade. The ride is better than a luxury sedan. Came with an off-road package which I don't expect to need, but nice to know it's there. Rear entertainment, leather, nav, sunroof, and satellite radio are all top notch!


Best Features

Smooth powerful engine. Smooth comfortable ride. Goes anywhere in snow and does it with style. V-8 gets 16mpg around town, and 19 mpg on the highway. Rear entertainment and power everything. Just better looking than any other large SUV out there!


Worst Features

Make chrome rear bumper plate standard. I added to mine and really dresses it up. Move cruise control stalk from above turn signal stalk to below turn signal stalk.
