Beautiful but costly. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 10/10/2012. Trim: 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Roomy, comfortable ride, definitely a luxury vehicle.
Cons: Purchased 2007 model in 2009 with a warranty. Within 9 mos of warranty expiring, all he*l broke loose! Compressor blew, needed rear struts, Airmatic system is greatly flawed. Exterior lights always need to be replaced & had 2 "fried" electrical panels. After getting compressor replaced and other odds and ends that went along with that, now the front suspension is in need of repair - porbably front struts leaking or engine block needs replacing. Love the car, but hate the maintenance. Was told that 07-09 model years have problems with both the Airmatic operation & major Transmission issues.
Overall review: Pretty...but not pretty enough to justify the aggravation!

Expensive to own by An MSN Autos Consumer on 04/27/2012. Trim: 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Styling, ride comfort, very roomy, good gas mileage on the highway for an SUV
Cons: very costly to maintain, poor gas mileage in the city (11/ 12 mpg), very poor quality,
Overall review: We loved the vehicle for it's car like ride and space but not a vehicle to retain AFTER the warranty expires as it will cost your wallet dearly.

Biggest Benz Blunder by Oyeronke from Lagos, Nigeria on 07/06/2008. Trim: 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Looks, handling, comfortable seats
Cons: This car is a disaster! Just been told I need a new engine for my 9-month old car cos rain water in a ditch got into the engine as I drove through (through the air filter!) Car conked out and had to be towed to the dealer for the umpteenth time. I thought this was meant to be an SUV! My wife's 2007 Lexus GX 470 drives through even deeper water everyday and does not even blink! This is the masterstroke in a series of torture techniques that started in the 3rd month of purchase.
Overall review: This will be my last Mercedes - ever!
