Mercedes GL

Hi all,

Not posted on this forrum for a long time now so hopefully this is the right place for my post?

I'm looking to buy a new car and would love to buy the GL. I've owned a 1999 ML before but in all honesty, with the air suspension I think the ride quality and cornering was not as good as it could have been. The brakes also used to go soft after a few sharp breaking manouvers.

Is the GL any better as it also uses air suspension? I also need the 7 seats and so need something a little bigger and so can understand that economy is not always the best in these cars but what's the GL like? is the 3.2 better or the 4.2?

Any advise, good points and bad points from GL owners or enthusiasts would be very much appreciated.

Also, is the BMW X5 any better? It'd be one of these that I'd be looking to buy as a baby seat plus 2 adults in the back of a car is very uncomfortable.

Many thanks in advance.
