#174 of 183 2007 GL450 - noises when parked or at a stop light

Ok - I might be asking a dumb question but I would rather know for sure than do damage to my beautiful car. When I am parked or stopped at a stop light, I hear a "swooshing" sound. Is that normal? If so, what is it?

Might it be the automatic suspension leveling process? After I park, it “settles” a few inches most of the time.

Thank you. So it's normal to hear that noise as the leveling process begins?

Yes, there is A noise when the auto-level occurs. I'd describe it as more of a groaning hum than a swoosh, though. I tend to notice it only when standing at the rear unloading stuff and feel the level dropping and hear the background hum of the hydrolics or electrical system or whatever powers it.

I found a very interesting article on the competition of GL class 3 models: GL 350 BlueTec vs. GL 450 vs. GL550 Click this link. And want to hear some thoughts from anyone. I'm trying to figure out what choice is better.
#179 of 183 Extended Warranty for '07 GL450 - cost?
Dec 04, 2009 (6:46 pm)
I am interested in a '07 GL450, and think that a 100K extended warranty might be a wise investment. Is that a good decision? What should I expect to pay for such a thing? I would really appreciate any input on what to look out for, recommended places to get the warranty from, etc. etc.

Hi, I recently purchased a 2007 GL450 which only has less than 2,000 miles on the factory warranty. Before the warranty expires, I plan on adding the extended warranty. It seems like the prices are varying from $2,500 to $4,000.

Are you planning to buy the extended warranty from the dealer or from a different provider? Do you know the price difference? My dealer is using the scare tactic that some times they will fix things under extended warranty from Mercedes which other companies may not reimburse me. So, I will be better off buying a warrant from them. Any thoughts?
