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.

Pros: Looks nice I guess, Interior isn't bad

Cons: Price, build quality, "not intended for winter use," everything really...

Gulfstream Of Suv's — Pure luxury, the sound deadning and isolation is just unbelievable. The power and performance is just right...its's big yet understated it shrinks around you

Pros: 7 speed automatic shifts seamlessly

Cons: Your eyes would pop out at the gas pump when you filling your tank
