Hello from Northern California
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Matthew and I am new to Mercedes in terms of actual ownership. I have had MBZ in the family, nothing too extravagant, 190E's and what not. I've honestly tried to stay away from Euro cars not because of any horor stories I've heard, because I have always tried to buy American products but as time and experience comes, I'm realizing you cannot beat the MBZ fit and finish.
So the wife and I decided to go for our first luxury vehicle. We recently had a little girl which makes our family +4 (we have a older 3 yo daughter as well) and our little hybrid wasn't going to do it. We found a 2010 GL450 with 30k miles for a terrific deal. When comparing similar vehicles (year, style, etc) we were quite surprised what we could get with our money (comparing Escalades, Denal's, etc).
Long story short: we love the car and couldn't be happier with it. Now for some personalization?
My wife is not going to be happy. LOL
