Mercedes-Benz GL550 Reviews and Owner Comments
Best car I've ever driven in terms of ride, power, curb appeal, etc. Worst car I've ever had in terms of reliability. Airmatic suspension a nightmare--have had both front units replaced. One failed after replacement and had to get it done (fortunately under parts warranty). Numerous other issues (e.g. sill vanity lights, power folding mirrors, rear latch failure, EZ-GO power lock failure, etc.) that really, REALLY detract from ownership experience. Won't be buying another M-B.
suspension,tire,rack,power steering issues! Well the rack went out at 48k thank God it was under warranty. At 53k it needed its 3rd set of odd sized tires.only 2 brands? At 56k its first front air susp.bag went,lucky... i found a company that rebuilds with a lifetime warranty w/exchange for a couple hundred bucks At 58k the right front air susp. bag went At 59k the air susp. compressor went. And at 61k the power steering pump went. Now what realy gets me is this is my wifes truck and i don't even drive it....and she drives like my granny.So this seems to be all the main problems that i read about. hope im good for another 50k....other than tires.
This is a high-quality truck in all respects. Handles very well, good turning radius, comfortable, attractive inside and out. Expensive to run and repair but, I knew that up front. Although it is a luxury vehicle as opposed to a work vehicle, there is a ton of space with both 2nd and 3rd rows of seats down. It is a pleasure to drive.
