WOW!! I want one. I have put about 600 miles on the rental this weekend. At 160kmh/100mph the beast gets 23.2 mpg with a full load. Tourque is unreal fron the 4L V8 TDi motor. The Navigation system is very useful but a PIA at times. Seats are nice but a little wide. The tires are a little loud for a MB. Drives like a sporty truck not a sporty MB. Big fat tires=Big fat $$$. Sunroof is very nice and big. No zenon lights Finally figured out the cruise control. Clunky takeoff even for a truck. Had a bucking issue once like you have when someone is learning to drive a manual for the first time. Punch it and it goes likme mad hell once the turbo spools up. Top speed has not been deturmined yet, but it has been to 220kph. Brakes are good but nose-dives bad when at speed, very un-MB like. Verdict: If you can get better spring rates for it and find one in the US buy it, no other SUV gets 23-26 mpg and has AWD and TQ to pull a house down.
