Gl 450 Major problems
By tnance on


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


I purchased the Gl 450 4.7 Ltr about 1 year ago. It has spent over 2.5-3 months at the dealership while attempting to fix electronic problems. While driving the vehicle it would surge and then the warning lights would start lighting up like Christmas. The lights warned of the following failures ABS, Air bags to many to name they were all on. Then a big red box on the led would state drive to the dealership immediatly without shifting gears, how you do that in an automatic I'm still trying to figure out. We live in an isolated state with few roads and long distances between help. My faith in the Gl is gone! Hope no one else has experienced this. It still looks nice parked in my garage.

Best Features

Style comfort and the navagation system which does not work in Alaska. Nice to look at parked in the garage.

Worst Features

Fuel mileage, reliability and larger mirrors
