Bigger is Better
By Gerry R. on


2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl 7A)


This SUV is rock solid yet handles very well for a full size vehicle. The interior is very comfortable and cabin noise is very minimal. If you need seating for 7 this is the flagship vehicle. Vastly superior to the Audi Q7, Burban, mini-vans or anything else for that matter. If you want people mover, the search is over. I came out of a 2006 GM product that thought the service center was it's second home. Mercedes exudes quality and the dealership personnel treat you better. Quality does not cost, quality pays.

Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride. Backup camera. Solid, tight feeling of vehicle. View over hood from drivers seat and lack of blind spots. Exhaust note outside vehicle. Leather quality, fit and finish is superb compared to Q7. Safety rating and air curtains all the way back to the 3rd row seating.

Worst Features

Entry for 3rd row seats is difficult, the lever to move the seat up is very difficult to engage. Luckily the kids are part monkey and they just hop over the seat. The NAV system and satellite radio need to be updated and more user friendly. The control panel settings are awkward to set.
