A Real Dog

2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL320 CDI 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Always thought I would have it made when I could afford to buy a MB. Well after 25 months and 9 repair trips not including 5 service trips, I traded the dog on a GMC. If this vehicle would have run well I would have kept it but it did not. Small things like senors, computer software and large things like new rack and pinion steering and power steering pump were just too much. Beware of your warranty's end. Repairs are very expensive and time consuming. In discussing the issues with the MB reps in USA and Germany, I found that they were more concerned about themselves than the problems I was having.

Best Features

A dream to drive on the highway. Great body style and good fuel economy.

Worst Features

More comfortable seats, fix the tire wear issue and get some customer satisfaction training. Stop listening to all your marketing BS and start building client relationships, better running vehicles. Arrogance is not a virtue.
