The CLA is a horrible awful thing that was made for the European PCP (Peasant Contract Purchase) market for those that put £1000 down and pay £300 a month. They wouldn't know a proper Mercedes even if it ran up the back of them.

It can't be "the worst Mercedes built in the last 10 years" when you're saying this in 2021 and you're talking about a 2008 car. The dumbest automotive channel on Youtube indeed!

That's from the worst design era of Mercedes, between 2005 and 2013 every single model was a primitive styling disaster. Since previous generation of S class things got instantly much better.

Try to look at the fuel lines coming from and too the fuel filter, over time they get cooked and have tiny cracks that spray fuel like that. Just put the ignition in on position and don't start the engine and after a few seconds you will see the lines from the tank inflated from the pressure the pump is building. Just repeat on - lock ignition with a 30sec delay in lock position to bulid enough pressure to spot the leak. But don't start the engine and leave it to idle if u got fuel on the exhaust and dpf because if unlucky it decides it needs a regeneration, even in idle it will bring exhaust gas temperature between 250-500°C and in hot days even 800 degrees witch may ignite fuel and oil or even dry grass ! . Lot's of good luck and health I wish u guys from România!

Bought an '07 ML63 AMG (W164) with 58K miles for $24K. The car had lived an easy life in Newport Beach and was very clean. Thought I was getting a good deal at the time. Of course...not even 1500 miles later the dashboard lights lit up like a Christmas tree and the gears were slipping. What I learned was the transmission life for the AMGs is a lot shorter than on the ML350's (I had an '09 model too) due to the far higher HP & torque. $19K dealer estimate to replace the transmission was heartbreaking. After a good deal of searching I was able to get it rebuilt for $6500 plus a 3 year warranty via private mechanic. Since then the only other issue has been front right air suspension replacement for $1K. It hasn't been cheap, but I've taken it on multiple family trips well over 1K mile roundtrip each & it's become a beloved family SUV that my son will soon inherit.

Must be the diesel version that’s a lemon, my parents have a 2012 gl450 and it’s been a tank. So far it’s got around 140,000 and they have only had to replace the transfer case, a couple of the air suspension bags, and the trunk latch in its lifetime which is pretty good for a luxury German SUV

Pretty curious what the reason is for this massive leakage - maybe the diesel filter was mounted wrong - anyway it looks quite scary, even though diesel will not ignite as fast as gasoline..

Love the previous owner's story. They have a dog of a car, and desperate to get rid of it get a trade-in price from a BMW dealer. Presumably they were insulted by the offer, as they decided to keep the car in the end. What makes you think the car is worth anything to anyone else when you're desperate to sell it?

Very difficult for raw diesel to catch fire under those circumstances. I think 🤔 he is a little bit over the top. Done it to us, We could and would use it as an EMS vehicle in Guatemala. Look at the real old land cruiser I used in the video THE GUARDIAN ANGEL OF GUATEMALA. here in YouTube. It was an 87 diesel land cruiser. Bad to the bone, but broke

Bought an 07 GL320 for my wife (at the time) a few years ago. I own a mechanic shop and it immediately needed a transfer case and a pair or arnott front struts. She loved it and it drove great (167k at purchase). She hits me with a divorce not soon after, and wants to keep the Benz I bought her. Fine, whatever. In a years time, she takes it to another euro shop and drops 10 thousand bucks on it! The ac compressor gave out and she got a $4K Estimate and called me up. She was throwing in the towel and wanted to dump it. I gave her 2,500. A $500 compressor kit later and I have a truck for the most part I love driving. Has 250ish K miles on it and needs the engine dropped and resealed, but that’s not hard for me. I want to make it into an overland type rig when I get some spare time. 10/10 would not recommend one for an average person.

Buy a BMW diesel, I love my 2011 x5 so much, and it's been absurdly reliable (mostly because the entire cooler, different, and Def injection system magically fell of at some time when I hit a pothole.). I know you hate BMWs, but the m57 is such a great engine, and makes a ton of torque with deletes and a tune.

GL is a great SUV, but u are buying it with 200,000 Miles, and u expect it to run perfectly? C-mon buddy, once u pass 170K miles a lot of work will be needed, having said that, it all depends on the previous owners! Most people buy them and drive them till they breakdown and they'll trade them for a new one, Dealers take them on a trade for pennies and turn around and wholesale them or send them to the auction. But u can buy one from a person who always had its services @ Benz repair shop and change the oil and coolant and how often to change diesel exhaust fluid. I had a lot of Benz's I still have a 300SD TD with 480,000 miles and runs like a champ. Benz makes the best Diesel cars in the world. But Diesel needs care but not as often as Gas engines.

Our 07 GL450 had many suspension airbags fail, sat on the roof of mercedes service for a few months one time. The thing ate power steering pump reservoirs too. We traded it in at 96k miles. At one point the camshaft magnets failed? Idk something weird I’d never heard of, I’m a Powerstroke guy so I knew next to nothing about that car. Adding a few more failures: the rear gate, driver side rear door handle.

Pre '11 models in the GLs I'll agree but the GL350s & GL450s are well sorted - if you do find a GL450CDI V8 diesel with the OM629 torque monster in it, BUY IT!!

leaking disel fuel is bad but diesel is no where near as flammable as gasoline. Don't believe me, find a small can and put some diesel in there and throw a match on it. The match will go out with no flame. Diesel has to have either pressure or extreme heat to become flammable. The diesel under the car will never ignite under STP. You must have some kind of fire to provide the heat for it to be combustible.. This gives diesel a huge safety advantage over gasoline. The fuel system is decidedly simple with the line coming from the tank then going thru the fuel filter. Then the HPFP and then the injectors. I'd bet the injector pump (HPFP) is bad.. They're re-buildable made by Bosch.. Once you get the fuel taken care of and put some regular springs on it you'd probably have a decent car..

Mercedes and other big car companies who asked for big bucks for the supposedly top of the range cars should give a 10 yr warranty on all of the cars . How dare they want $1000s of dollars for a product that does not give back reliability ! Hyundai and KIA give 5-7 yr warranties for cars that are disposable and much cheaper yet these arrogant big companies will not !

Foolish is a relative thing. Some people have plenty of money and want what they want and are willing to pay the associated costs. That's not foolish. Foolish is allowing government regulators to enact regulations which force car engineers to make the car ever more complex and prone to breaking. Now that is foolish.
