"I purchased the glk new in May 2011. It has not had even one service call problem. My only expense has been new tires at 30,00 miles. I will look at the new GLC in Nov. but it will have to really good to beat my GLK."
"Best car i've ever owned - perfect size for day to day and travel. Handles like a dream, no matter what the conditions with the 4matic option. Reliable in snow, and is sturdy on the road. The interior is beautiful and panoramic sunroof is nice too. My one and only sub-negative is the backseat is a bit on the small side in regards to leg room if you have the front seats all the way back... you'll want to have shorter passengers ride in the back if you have a full group riding along. The GLK is on the E class chassis, so comfort while driving is amazing, but it still handles like a smaller, peppy suv with the pickup and go of a sportscar. The back hatch is handy with auto lift, and the backseat drops down very easily (one button) to store large items. Navigation and options are wells suited. Have had this car long enough to almost pay off & plan on keeping it a very long time. Even my husband loves it. Mercedes hit the mark for a compact SUV with the soul of their brand. Overall a pleasure to walk into my garage each day and go to work in this car - worth the money!"
"I have owned this SUV for about 3 months. It is a good bargain for the money; great driving comfort, good acceleration, and lots of options. I particularly love the way it breaks for you when you go down hill and provides extra torque while going up hill. I have not driven it on snowy roads yet, so cannot say much about the 4-matic peformance. To sum it all, it certainly does not handle like the BMW X3 but at the same time it is not as expensive. Great SUV for the budget driver."
Pros: "Layout, compact size, interior space, ease of routine maintenance."
Cons: "Limited to 5 passengers."
