I'm in the market for a large capacity SUV, for the wife to haul the family around. I'm in a location that does see snow, but car is mostly for street/highway driving. NO chance of off-roading unless she slides into a ditch. Priorities are safety, safety, and reliability, in that order. I don't care about "flash" I test drove the GL recently. It looks small on the outside, being billed as a 7-adult seat capacity. It's not as small on the inside, but not as roomy as I imagined. Salesman told me it's made in the Alabama plant; this makes me weary as there is the well-publicized problems with the ML class when it first came out. -So, any first-hand experience with the GL? -Any other SUV's you can recommend that I look into?
