Great car. Very fast, comfortable and spacious. Only seems big in small car parks. Fuel economy isn't it's strong point. Gearbox programmed for petrol, not diesel. Needs improved software. Very comfortable. Will do 12 hours in one sitting.

I had this car since 2010 and it is a great car, way better then that terrible Land Rover Discovery I used to own!! Reliability is high only minor problems with some parts. It has never broken down and never had any major problems. It is also a tank when it comes to safety. When a guy in a Toyota crashed into the back of the car at 10km/h. The rear fog lamp broke. Very nice finish and very powerful engine and very good off road. Adjustable air suspension is very nice and engines sound very good! Huge boot and well equipped, though fuel is OK. Value speaks for itself (AMG is overpriced) 350 is the best!
