GL450 Electronics problems continue!!!!
By fwg on


2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class GL450 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (4.7L 8cyl Turbo 7A)


I have experienced seemingly unending electronic failure issues with only 5,000 miles on vehicle:

Failure to go into sleep mode causing dead battery;towed to dealer 200 mi. away, MB refused to return to my location;

When vehicle is locked, one door, although locked, causes alarm and will open if handle is touched, even if EasyGo key is not present;

Adaptive High Beam headlight failure;

Rear tailgate opens with driver door occasionally;

When spraying the car with water, while washing, doors lock and unlock continually if you have key in pocket; circuit board replaced, issue continues- another appt. made

Where is the quality control?

Best Features

Great handling, rides like a sedan. Seats 7 easily.

Worst Features

Quality control needs to be improved. Dealer/MB support is lacking when not in major city close to a dealer.
