New GLE with rear end noise
Hi to all the members. New member, first post. I just leased a 2016 GLE350. I have had 3 ML's previously and leased the GLE because of the past good experiences we have had. The new GLE is very nice but two issues I would like to discuss. One being the Headlights. All of my previous models have had Xenons included in one of the packages that seemed to come on most ML's. The GLE doesn't have a common package including the xenons anymore obviously because of the introduction of the LED headlight option for $1,300. The standard headlights are TERRIBLE and MB should really be ashamed. How does other members fell about that. My salesperson was actually willing to give me another GLE but the one's in stock with the LED package were either the wrong color or not the right equipment. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME, MB!
The other issue deals with a very noisy rear end (not the wife) at certain speeds. This noise is annoying and loud enough that you can hear it over the radio. It is not present at highway speeds. Does anyone, especially members that have had ML,s in the past hear that noise? It seemed to be present in another GLE I test drove. I would appreciate any input. Sorry for the first post being so long. Happy Father's day to all!
