Pros

Super smooth transmission, just glides along with no hesitation. Best seat heaters, best front window defroster ever! Easy streering wheel interface for radio, phone...

Cons

It is a personal con, it is a stiff sporty ride not smooth over a bumpy road.

Beauty And Quality — This is a really nice car, beautiful lines, great comfort inside the cabin. Super smooth transmission, no hesitation when you give it the go! Easy to drive, very efficient control area for phone radio, nav... Gas mileage 15-18. It is a great car to drive and also to be a paasenger in, really comfortable seats. Love the power fold 3rd row seats. Great amount of cargo area.

Mb Gl320 2008 Amg — This is a nice vehicle, especially for long trips and off-road(mud and snow!!). Its great for towing, commuting, and shopping. Very comfortable ride and feels sturdy, not soft like other long wheelbase suvs. Has tons of torque and stop-light GO...but not so quick on freeway, but can top-out +110.

Great Family Truck! — With this truck, it was great for getting the family around without feeling cluttered. Truck mostly sat in the driveway as the main driver works out of state. Satellite radio, navigation, rearview camera all add to the luxury of this truck.

Major Let Down — I can't tell you how excited I was when we took delivery of this SUV. Its a seven-seater, built in Germany, equipped with a 5.5 liter V8 putting out nearly 400hp. At the same time the interior was extremely luxurious, easily one of the best ever in an SUV. But it soon became clear it was not a well sorted out SUV. The engine leaked fluids dozens of times, the tires and brakes needed replacing after 10k miles, and the air ride suspension stopped working. The biggest problem was when MB told us that they did not advice that drive it in the winter as they had yet to develop a snow wheel/tire package. Extremely disappointing experience all the way around. It also cost about 90k too much.
