Cons: no cooled seatsIn town we get 19-21 mpg on the road doing 65 mph we get 23-25 mpg
Wow what a vehicle
Pros: The mpg
Cons: NothingThis is a beautiful--well thought out and designed vehicle. The throttle is so smooth, you really know you are in a world class car. The ride is also smooth--drivers beware, it feels like you are going 50 when you are at 75. It's quiet with a fantastic sound system. Sirius is great--CDs are the best. All this and get 28 mpg average. No diesel smell, even with a cold start. Outside the car you can hear a muffled diesel purr. We got the Distronic also, works fantastic. Great Car

Advice: purchase all the optionsi've got 4,000 miles on a GL350 Bluetec. this is the most satisfying auto purchase since my 1966 corvette convertible. comfort, performance, value and appearance. This one has it all.
Pros: This is a hard one
Cons: Maybe having to lift the second row of seats to get to the third row.
Advice: I do not think they will regret it if purchased. It is quite steep price wise but the quality is astonishing.Incredible vehicle. Luxurious interior and non bulky smoothly designed exterior. Goes to well....more than 65 effortlessly and without any drag. It is so comfortable to drive and very easy to manuveure. Makes trips look like nothing esp with the Sirius hits 1. So much technology, I am still reading the manual.... My two boys love it! My best car ever and I plan to keep it for some 10 years at least.
Pros: Steering and sold feel.
Cons: Should have bought the climate control system for all three rows.
Advice: No need to compare vehicles. The GL 450 is the best of the offerings.Recently bought a black GL 450 and love it. Drives like a car. Very solid in all respects. I do believe Mercedes-Benz has a winner with the GL 450.
