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


Review

Our family has had this vehicle for two weeks and it is spectacular. My wife is the primary driver and she loves it. I've gotta think that some Americans (Chrysler influence?) were involved in the design parameters because the Germans finally nailed what an SUV should be. This chameleon is amazingly user friendly and provides everything you could want in a large SUV but somehow feels diminutive from behind the wheel. The interior is truly something to behold. Stitched leather, gorgeous wood accents, and appealing angles abound. A++


Best Features

Seats, including the third row seats, are very comfortable for my 6'0. Everything you touch is top quality. All rear seats fold flat. Auto tailgate and power fold-down rear seats. Technology on this vehicle is neverending so be prepared to learn. Incredible safety features. Rear view cam


Worst Features

Larger side view mirrors. Easier user interface for climate/stereo/sat nav

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


Review

Quality, size, fast, and fun, the list could go on. I wanted a large SUV and ended up comparing Navigator, Escalade and the GL. In my opinion, there is no contest.


Best Features

V8 engine, Bluetooth, auto leveling, and handling.


Worst Features

Backing up is a challenge, Parktronic helps, but a standard back up camera is a must.

Review

I've only had my vehicle for about a week and I can say with confidence that this is the best luxury full size SUV on the market. I've driven and researched all other full size SUV's and they don't even compare! This vehicle is quiet, comfortable, smooth as silk. "Quiet as a mouse" diesel engine and transmission, and drop dead good looks. I keep driving around and never see the fuel gauge move as this vehicle with the diesel gets incredible mileage. Don't walk, run to your nearest dealer and order one as they are getting tougher to find due to the great demand.


Best Features

Super quiet, great mileage diesel engine. Quiet smooth ride. Beautiful interior, head turning appearance. 19" tires and wheels.


Worst Features

Redesign and move the cruise control lever.

Review

I gave my Acura MDX to my daughter and was looking for another solid SUV. Fell in love with the MB GL450 at first sight. Beautiful inside and out. Then saw the 320CDI version and drove it. Couldn't believe it was a diesel. Who would believe that you could have large comfortably luxury in an SUV and get 27 mpg on the highway? I was only worried about recent MB quality surveys on Consumer Reports but felt a little better given that the GL was totally redesigned.


Best Features

I love size and the looks. Navigation is a little complicated but fine once you get the hang of it. The Comm center gives you more information than you'll probably ever want. It has a great ride with a good road feel. You simply can't believe it's a diesel - no delay starting and it's quiet!


Worst Features

Bluetooth accessory was way too expensive at $350 (should be standard on a vehicle at this price) and the running boards are still back-ordered!

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


Review

Just returned back from vacation and driven a total of 4000 miles. Got about 20 miles/gal. Excellent drive and ride comfort. Love the Off-Road package and P1 and lighting package. All my cars are Benz, but thought about buying Lexus LX470 but ended up buying the lovely GL450.


Best Features

Off-Road package with damping system. Rearview camera. P1 package, multi-contour seats, iPod, engine power, curise control, phone.


Worst Features

MB has the best navigation and rearview camera system in the new S Class and they should be using it all their models.
