Cool SUV, Comfortable, Head Turner

Overall great experience of this suv, no complaints on the driving and comfort. The back has massive space for carrying plus if the need arises the seats can be folded 180 degrees to increase the rear space. Engine has a nice roar to it and smooth suspension. Has three driving modes, eco which will have a nice lux quiet sound to it, sport will enable the exhaust to roar, and manual for more driver control. Overall loved it and will buy again.


Most expensive and list comfortable Benz iv owned

Most uncomfortable car No storage Horrible gas mileage No leg room front or back Waist of money the doors will not close unless you Slam them


Heavy, durable truck

Great truck for a small family. Handles exceptionally well in poor weather, and has enough power to have fun but comfortable enough for road trips! Also gets lots of looks
