Hopefully MB learns for their mistakes and missteps. You're wait is just about over Greg.

In the US for the GLE it was almost 3 months after launch before pricing came out; may be about the same for this. That would mean June pricing and Fall availability.

GLE is months behind on production you can only assume the same for GLS.

On the other hand my German assembled E 43 has been essentially perfect.. my 2018 GLS has been also good during it first 20k.

NEVER would i buy a first year model car today. That's just me, but with all the new tech here will be many bugs. Check the Range Rover Velar pages on facebook. A nightmare. It's all the tech. Wait a year for a late build.

I don't believe Mercedes has first model year issues. My GLS has been great.

Everything you read on the internet is always true. I've been in this business for a LONG time. It's the truth.

Every new restyled model has a higher probability of having issues. Donít think Mercedes builds cars with Godís hands.

Another view of the X7

This was also posted on the X7 forum.
You know what they say ..opinions are like aholes ..everyone has one.
IMO if I like how it looks and how it drives I don’t care what anyone else thinks about it.

Iím guessing some of you have read many favorable X7 reviews by now so this review is suspect at best. Donít believe me? Check them out on YouTube and see how many Ďless favorableí reviews you can find. Poppycock review.

Long shot but I wouldn't mind seeing a plug-in hybrid powertrain for the GLS. Similar to how there was GLE 550e for a short while. Problem is where to put the batteries w/o interfering w/ the 3rd row.

The guy who wrote this review seems to not like luxury suvs in general judging by many of his comments.

As an owner of two generations, and someone who considers the GL/GLS just extraordinary in all respects, Iím supremely disappointed with how safe they played it with the exterior. Just me, maybe my tune will change when I see it in the flesh

I agree! It’s almost like we’ve seen it somewhere before.......

Does anyone know if orders for the GLS can be input for Canadians yet or when we can expect to be able to?
