Customer Review Summary for 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450
Best Luxury 7 Seater
2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450geeddyup - Los Angeles09/17/2012
Very impressive 7 seater compared to the LR4, Q7, X5, Escalade, & Enclave I was looking at. The price was definitely worth it considering the price for a new one. The LR4 comes close but didnt have that luxury but truck feel (wife didnt appreciate that); Q7 & X5 3rd rows are too cramped to be taken seriously; Escalade felt much larger to drive; and the Enclave had a better seating arrangements 2/2/3 but lacked in luxury - it seemed like a minivan interior with a decent exterior. The LR4 though may have a better chance than the LR3 & GL450 when it comes to seating arrangements due to the 3rd row access (30/40/30) & easy pull down seats. But GL450 won out overall due to luxury.
Cons for the GL: getting in/out of the 3rd row is such an effort. I hope they solved this issue with newer models. Given that the 3rd row is electrical, it had a pulley system that required a huge effort to fold the front seats. Also if you want to put in a rear camera, it will cost you 1400$ (quote from 3 places).
Pros: luxury, price if used, comfort 2nd & 3rd rows, & smooth ride. Its a nice machine & gets looks.
