Grading the GL

Posted Image

Anita Lienert also took the time this week to give the new Mercedes GL the once-over. The GL being a competitor to the Escalade and her being a Lienert, you may expect her to totally praise it and pan the Caddy. Well...no, actually. As it turns out, Anita has quite a few gripes concerning the big Merc.

Optional leather. Hillarious. Like None Other.

Actually, leather seating surfaces are standard. It's the "full" leather interior (dash, doors) that costs extra.

And what will it take for you to stop posting Like None Other jokes on every Merc thread? :P

Oh, speaking of leather, you can get no-cost leatherette on a $90K S550, thanks to PETA.

I shall stop when Mercedes starts making true luxury cars once again - automobiles that cater to the preferred, not the lessee; cars with sensible German engineering that combines precision and dilligence with potency and elegance; cars whose defects are an odometer that sticks because its rolled over so many times, not a self-leveling suspension that can't level itself or radar brakes that don't work.

In other words, when Mercedes builds a Mercedes. Like None Other. ;)
