Pros

Both the exterior and interior of my GL450 are truly superb. The handling is immaculate, the space is great for big loads like luggage/ mulch/etc..., and the space is incredible!

Cons

The GL450's size is is on the larger end compared to other SUV's, it is quite a heavy vehicle, and the passenger seat could have more leg room, but great for people under 5'5".

Best Car I've Ever Owned — Mercedes really showed the amount of effort they put into their vehicles with the GL450. The craftsmanship and style is incomparable to that of, say, Audi or BMW. The power is ridiculous and the off-roading is crazy! If you can get onto a highway with little to no traffic and put the pedal to the metal, you will be appalled (in a good way!) by the utter power and force of the car! You get thrown into your seat, but that only lasts a second, then you just fly! You feel like your driving a supercar, but then you realize that you are in one of seven smartly made, stylish, and comfortable seats, all perfectly cocooned in a beautiful and spacious luxury sports utility vehicle, and a Mercedes-Benz nonetheless!

Great Family Or Work Suv, Great For Trips To The Beach Or To The Snow (4matic) — I liked the drivability of this SUV, great views all around, no blind spots, commands the road with style and grace, and a sense of power since it is a Mercedes. Feel free to cruise or really use the powerful German engineering to get where you're going in a hurry.

Pros

It's a Benz

Cons

the technology isn't convenience.  The worse designed car ever

Disappointed — The navigation isn't a touch screen and it is so inconvenience. The DVD, phone bluetooth and backup camera will not work unless you turn the radio on. I was completely shock to see how much Mercedes invest into hiring such engineer to do the job.

Outstanding For Performance And Practicality. — This is basically an S class SUV - and worth every penny. It can carry bikes and all kinds of stuff as well as the kids - and can go for more than 700 miles with a tank of fuel. Handling is superb. We are very very pleased with this purchase.
