- 6"6" driver has plenty of room.
Purchased As New
Purchased my GL450 in the fall of 2008. It has been on 3 different 2500 mile trips and has performed flawlessly. My gas mileage is even better that expected. 19.2 mpg. This is one fantastic road machine.

I BOUGHT MY CAR ON MAY/2008 AT PENSKE COVINA AND SO FAR IT HAS BEEN BACK FOR REPAIR 5 TIMES. SOMETIMES IF I DONT HAVE THE JUMPER BUSTER NEXT TO ME I HAVE TO ASK ROAD ASSISTANCE TO JUMP UP MY CAR, THEY ALREADY CHANGE ONCE THE BATTERY AND STILL SAME PROBLEM AND THEY SAID NOTHING WRONG, SO NEW CAR WITH A JUMPER BUSTER NEXT TO ME. ALSO TWICE THE BRAKE EDAL WENT ALL THE WAY DOWN FOR NO REASON WHILE DRIVING THE CAR IT WAS SCARY BUT ONCE AGAIN THE SAY NOTHING WRONG. I GUESS THEY WANT TO SEE ME AT THE HOSPITAL AND THEN THEY WILL BELIEVE IT. THEY SAID ONLY "SORRY" BUT I CAN'T TRUST THIS CAR ANYMORE AND ALL THEY SAY I CAN'T RETURN IT, DO WHAT EVER YOU WANT. SO I AM LOOKING FOR AN ATTORNEY SINCE I AM VERY FRUSTATED THAT I DON'T KNOW WHEN IT IS NOT GOING TO START UP MY CAR AND WHERE AND MORE THAN ANYTHING I AM SO ASHAMED TO JUMP A NEW 2008 GL IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. IF I WANT TO BUY A JUNK CAR I DIDN'T HAVE TO GO FOR THIS MODEL AND WHO KNOWS WHEN THE BRAKES WILL MALFUNCTION AGAIN AND WILL HAPPEN TO ME SINCE THEY CAN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG. I REALLY REGRETED BUYNG THIS CAR OR "PIECE OF JUNK" SHOULD SAY....read morehide

- Good on Gas! It rides very smooth. The sound system is Awesome! I love the space in the vehicle.
- Doesn't get good gas mileage in the city, but that's with any vehicle.
I purchased my vehicle a few months ago and I previously owned and BMW x5. This vehicle is far better in comparison. The handling of the vehicle, the style performance and the maintenance is far less expensive that my previous own vehicles. I love the leather interior with the leather trimming around the dash and throughout the SUV. My son loves the dual DVD player and he and his friends can watch 2 different movies at the same time. So no fussing about who has to watch what. That's a big relief! My most favorite of this truck, is the surround sound system in the vehicle. When you are riding with the music on, it sounds like there is a concert going on and the entertainers are right there in the vehicle with you.The only complaint that I have is the navigation system. It is not user friendly. It is easy for me because, I am a techi, so I relate to the navigation system. I understand it...lol. Overall, the price, performance and the comfort of the vehicle is superb! My family and I love or 450 GL....read morehide

- Nice ride, lots of room & low wind noise when roof rack removed
- Fit/Finish just isn't there.....
This car/truck is 5 months old and has only 3400 miles on it. The Pirelli tires are pathetic, the running boards are rusting as are the non plated wheel studs. I guess the $3500 appearance package wasn't a worthwhile expenditure.
Everything about this vehicle is left unfinished. They don't even make the users manuals the right size to put in the glove box. The dual screen rear seat entertainment system has a remote control - THE ONLY WAY TO TURN MOVIES ON/OFF. That's fun in traffic when your kids are cranky. They incorporated everything else into the audio system, why not the contols too? I guess the engineers were too busy trying to think of a way to build an inferior navigation system and got distracted.
Outside of a very smooth ride and quite a bit of room in the cabin, I can't find a lot of positive things to say about this truck....read morehide

- Comfortable Ride, you get what you pay for, third row seats are spacious
Compared to other (Audi, Range Rover, & X5) the MB GL450 offers more for the price you pay. It is a tank yet drives so smoothly.
We are just enjoying the experience.

- The third row seat is comfortable fo adults it is okay lovely leather
- It takes premium fuel and only gets 13 and 18
The Mercedes Benz GL450 4Matic is a very elegant ride. The price for this vechile are low against its competition such as the cadillac Escalade ESV. Overall it is an amazing car on asphalt but off road is a different story.

- Interior a dream, comfortable beyond belief, my soul is smiling
- A bit heavy, gas (still breaking in though) mileage is not earth friendly
Have been driving a stripped down (no packages, no extra's) 2007 GL450, and LOVED it, the ride was tight but extremely comfortable at the same time, the trans was the smoothest I'd ever experienced (I have had a Yukon Denali, an Volvo XC90, Acura, now have a BMW 540i, none compare) there isn't a thing that I would complain about on that car, even considered buying the stripped down used one I had been driving, however I also thought I would really enjoy some of the packages offered on the car...I am now driving a new 2008 GL450 with P1, tow package, I-pod integration, 19" wheel package and voice command, it is also 4-matic, the other was not. My new GL with the 4-matic is a bit loftier than the stripped down version, and the gas mileage is not where the other was (my new one is heavier with the bigger tires...) but then again I only have 60 miles on it! I imagine as the car breaks in it will get better...really hoping so anyway...for those that have the opportunity to purchase this car, take it from someone who has owned the other top brands...this is my "forever" car, I will never part with it...I LOVE MY GL450!!!...read morehide

- Fantastic ride, sturdy feel, great visability and control
- 2nd row captains chair option would be nice
After my 3rd Suburban turned 8 years old, I looked for a change and I'm glad I settled on the GL450. Nothing wrong with the Sub but the GL drives much smaller than it is and nothing is left behind besides all the other SUV choices out there.
