2008 Mercedes-Benz G-Class GL320 CDI 3.0 litre turbo diesel from North America
Used car bargain of the year
Nothing to date.
No one can believe that this vehicle is 8 years old. Still finding my way around all the features.
This is a one owner car and so far it cannot be faulted. The most surprising experience is the almost silent ride considering that there is a diesel in the front.
The comfort level for the first 2 rows of seats is excellent, we have not used the 3rd row yet so cannot comment on ease of access back there.
Daimler Benz provides instruction books that run almost 700 pages, so it will be a while finding what each of the bell and whistle controls does.
The high seating gives all riders a wonderful all round view and the seats are well contoured and supportive.
For the price well below almost all brand new cars and the ability to fuel up at a little over 80c a litre, the savings keep adding up.
I am aware that this model has some issues with suspension struts, 3 have been replaced so the 4th may need to be fitted sometime. I am prepared for that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
