    the GL is a fantastic vehicle, big, solid and very safe.

    the only problems I had with my GL, although it was the GL500 petrol, was tyres, replaced after every 20 000km at a cost of almost R6 000 per tyre. I had an issue once with the air suspension and the cost of the services are quite high.

    the diesel should not be as heavy on tyres but remember it is a big vehicle so the parts for the brakes, etc. is more expensive.

    I did the faces of the namib 2 years ago and in our group was a 320GL which did good in the dunes.

    Congrats!

    Don'e mean to rain on the parade, but did you check that it had not been in an accident? I see the CDI badge is missing from the bootlid.


    Maybe check the car's history before your CPA cooling off period is over

    I did too, even got hold of the previous owner, he said it was a slow traffic bumper bash. Had it checked out by a buddy that owns a panelbeater shop. He said it must have been almost no damage as it is the original bumper that have been resprayed.

    Yes, unfortunately

    I have a big issue with Mitsu and the availability of parts as experience by one of my clients, and conversations with 3 different panelbeaters.

    I'd rather buy a GL than the new Range Rover.
