Question about 2007 Mercedes-Benz GL450

1 Answer

SUV good deal

I'm looking for a large SUV. GL450 seems to be a good choice. But consumer report says that the reliability is below average. I'm not sure exactly what it means. Can any GL450 owners share their owner experience with me? Also I'm living in silicon valley CA. Does anyone know which dealer I can get the best deal for premium package 1?

Mbenz uses a poly tapered tool to do this, but if you do not have one, a putty knife will work just as well. I think you will find that you have more problems that you will care to undertake. More than likley the window regulator is broken. The local dealer says the regulator without the motor is about $250. Don't blame your wife, this is a common occurance as the regulators are flimsy.

  1. Many owner-reviewers on the Edmunds automotive website gave the CR-V a reliability rating of 1 to 5 out of of 10, citing the vehicle's expensive maintenance after passing 75,000 miles. On the AutoBeef website, owners who reviewed the vehicle reported a variety of AC and heater, electrical, engine, suspension and transmission problems to be the main issues of the vehicle, with other problems reported.
  2. AC and Heater Problems
  3. The most numerous issue faced by CR-V owners, air conditioning and heater problems plague even low-mileage CR-Vs. Most owners report an end blowing off the AC compressor, at an average of 76,900 miles. Repairs cost an average of $2,660, but in some cases cost as much as $3,700.
  4. Electrical Problems
  5. CR-V owners also cite electrical problems, prominently to locking and window mechanisms and interior accessories. Reported everywhere from 45,000 miles to over 100,000 miles, owners say that the doors won't unlock with the factory remote, the keys won't unlock the car, and that cigarette lighters and window buttons fail. Average repair cost per issue came out to $250.
  6. Engine Problems
  7. Owners report irregular idle patterns, catalytic converter failure, oxygen sensor failure and excessive engine oil use in CR-V engines. Occurring under or around 100,000 miles, these problems average roughly $2,500 to correct.
  8. Suspension Problems
  9. The two most common suspension problems are cracked ball joints and misaligned struts, which can cause the vehicle to pull to one side. Most problems occurred between 60,000 and 100,000 miles, and cost $300 or more on average to repair.

My brother is looking at an 01 grand cherokee with 88000 miles he's 21 and has a kid and girlfriend just wondering what the life expectancy is on these jeep the one he's lookin at is fully loaded laredo...

The Grand Cherokee has been a well-proven SUV since it's introduction in 1993...many improvements have been included since the first model...The Laredo is usually the sporty version...just under the Luxury trimmed Limited. Parts and service are available everywhere...a great plus when Chrysler purchased Jeep a few years back too. They do hold value well, but the best bet to compare purchase price now would be to contact your Bank for Loan Value figures on the 2001 with 88,000 miles. The rule of thumb is if you can purchase the Jeep for the Loan Value is a great Deal. Also you can look on-line for other similar Jeeps and see what they are selling for. At 88,000 miles some wear items may need struts, brakes, tires, tune up parts...fule and all filter changes...Ask to see a service record if possible to see what repairs have been carfax info on certain repairs...The Grand Cherokee is worth checking out. A great car for single, or Family...Hope this helps...:)

What Is a SUV

SUV is the widely used and known acronym, for Sport Utility Vehicle. At first conception, an SUV was a vehicle that combined the towing capacity of a full-size truck with the passenger and storage capacity of a minivan. However, as consumer demands have changed, so has the SUV. Many manufacturers now focus on fuel-efficiency and driving and riding comfort, rather than towing capacity.

The typical features of an SUV include;
1. seating for five to seven,

2. high seating and road positioning, roomy interior,

3.Non-dedicated trunk space,

4. High engine capacity and 4 wheel drive capability.

Though the SUV was originally designed to be an off-road vehicle for sporting purposes, their popularity has spawned several different breeds, including the luxury SUV.
Like cars, the SUV has different classes and sizes. The mid-sized SUV, which typically seats five, is the best-selling variety in the United States. During the SUV’s height of popularity, the Ford Explorer remained the top-selling model. The compact and full-size SUV appeals to many consumers equally, but for different reasons. The luxury SUV has the same features as standard class models, but contains upgraded interiors and trim packages typically associated with luxury model vehicles, such as leather interior.

When next you hear the name "SUV",i believe you now know what they are talking about.

check the consumer reports best buy online, they usually can tell you something about vehicles and issues they have had. Daewoo has NOT been on the market that long really. I would look more at some other brand vehicle that's been on the market alot longer to be honest.
