A few months ago I started considering a new car. The thread was here: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4709641/1 Test drove a GL 450 and liked the vehicle. Then my search led me to my friend who is a dealer. Together we searched for a good car and found a 2015 GL 550 that Mercedes Benz of USA was selling. Started bidding on it early April but could not meet the reserve. After a month of weekly auctions, I raised my limit and they lowered their reserve. It has 19k miles, with features that will take my some time to learn. I like how solid it is and how well it behaves on the road. It's not a sports car and handles like a midsize sport sedan if the suspension is in the sport mode. The gas mileage is horrendous. I haven't driven it much to write a review but one thing that I didn't think about is how am I going to wash the roof or clean the windshield. I probably need to get a small ladder or something.
