GL 550 Refined And Exilerating
By Gary Case on


2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL550 4dr SUV AWD (5.5L 8cyl 7A)


This car has a duo personality, smooth and refined around town; yet exilerating on the open road. The ulta wide 21 inch tires complement the suspension dynamics to make it handle like a BMW x5 with out the punishing ride. When you are on a Sunday drive with the family, they'll never realize there is 380 horses under the hood.

Best Features

I lke the styling better than any car I've ever owned with the possible exception of a 1970 mustang Mach One. It's upgraded killer sound system rivals the Mark Levinson in my 2007 Lexus LS460. The comfort seats adjust to an ideal position for all body types. Power tailgate is great.

Worst Features

Side mirrors are too small for safe driving, and completely inadequate for trailing. Navigation and convenience electronics can't compete with Lexus
