"I bought a 2015 GLK 350 AWD 4 moths ago and have 4,000 miles on it. Overall the car is great. It drives well with good visibility (tight handling and responsive). The interior finishing is impressive and comfortable. Overall combined mileage is about 24mpg. Mercedes customer service and follow-up is excellent. The only downside is the navigation system. For example, you can't take a look at the upcoming turns, miles to next point or the total itinerary. Mercedes apparently realized this was an issue and upgraded it on the new C class. I called them to ask if a hardware/software upgrade would be made available for the GLK and they said it was not & they weren't sure if it would be. So on long trips I need to use my iPhone and the Google maps navigation function to get this information"

"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."

Excellent driving and passenger experience.

"Terrific 'crossover' with plenty of power and comfort. Rear passenger seats are very slightly short on legroom for long journeys. Trunk space is not huge but fine for all but big family travelling. Economy is fine for size of engine but a bit thirsty for all city driving."

"I have had 3 mercedes, this is a good suv. small but large enough to carry all my luggage, travel is easy, road driving is a dream and in town is easy to manage. Runs great and gas mileage is not bad at all. Has trailer hitch set up and I use it quite a bit. Hauls easily."
