#34 of 44 Roof Rail Replacement Part
Jul 15, 2009 (6:22 pm)
Any advice on where to go to get a replacement part for the front side of the side rail, drivers side? The dealer quoted some crazy price to replace the whole rail.
In addition, is there a good, free resource site to identify part numbers with diagrams? I could contact my service advisor on this I suppose.

#39 of 44 how to get MB to take back the CPO GL450?
Sep 27, 2010 (11:35 pm)
We bought our 07 GL450 (CPO with extended warranty) in mid Feb. There were issues with the car from the start. I meant even during the first time we saw the car in the lot the tailgate won't open. The dealer claimed someone had drained the battery. . . . so we bought it. Then we noticed the DVD doesn't work during the delivery and some other small things. Brought the car back the vary same wknd and left it there to have everything fixed. That's just say that was the beginning of many other problems. 7 months into the ownership, I have been to the dealership for at least 10 visits with two overnight repairs and I am taking the car back for another issue with the tailgate tomorrow. The rep at the dealership recognizes my number when I call that's how frequent problems appear. . . . Don't really have the time to deal with this piece of junk with work and two babies under 3 y.o. Can anyone guide me what to do next?! Thank you!!

#41 of 44 Considering 2009 GL550
May 10, 2012 (7:08 am)
I am considering buying a 2009 GL550. This will be my first Benz, been more of a BMW person but want the 3rd row capability of the GL. I have been reading a lot about the reliability issues of the GL. Main reason to buy this truck is for long trips for the family so would like to have a car that will not leave us stranded.
Current owners, what has been your experiences so far with this vehicle ?, what would you suggest I look out for ?. Thanks in advance
