OK vehicle but stupid option packages
By mssurrey on


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


The vehicles is similar to the ML in design, especially the interior which is an almost exact copy og the smaller ML class. The most annoying thing are the options packages (only two or three to choose from). In order to get memory seats, I had to spend thousands of dollars on a Premium package with many features I simply didn't want or need such as a sunroof and a Nav system (have my own Garmin unit) At a time when many manufacturers are increasing options, Mercedes have bundled everything together so that the only option you now have is basically 'Take it or leave it'. How ridiculous

Worst Features

Options should be individual like an 'a la carte' menu so that you can get what you want and nothing more. Bring back the lighting / comfort / and other packages at the very least. Reliability issues with electronics (this is a perennial problems with Mercs nowadays).
