Is this because the 06-07 were built on the Mercedes M class platform and the 09 is not?
Like I said, the 07 drives better and has less top-heavy feel. The only thing I like about the 09 is itís easier to get back into the throttle. The 07 at times, when you let off it's hard to evenly get back into the throttle without revving the rpm's to 5000.
How did you get a 2009 ?
