"I have had this small SUV for several months now and I really like it. The feeling of driving is amazing. The interior is very comfortable. The engineer is powerful enough for the size of the car and is really responsive. The mileage is not too bad. I can do nearly 19 miles per hour in mostly city driving in a big metropolitan area, which is better than my previous Altima. The Bluetooth is easy to connect with my iPhone and is easy to use. Overall, this is a great car with a very reasonable price."
"Drove from SC to North Dakota and back over three weeks--personal road trip for pleasure. Excellent handling in all situations. Great around town car, my primary use.
More interior storage would be nice."
"Rides like a luxury sedan, motors like a sports car, corners better than any other SUV, this car is an exceptional value. Totally outclasses the competition. I'd buy this car again even if it wasn't a better deal than any of the competition. It is just a better vehicle."
"We've leased our MB GLK for almost 18 months. It is my wife's car and she has already said she wants to keep it once the lease is up in another 18 months. We went with a kelly green exterior, tan interior, cold weather package, premium stereo with satellite. This car is built on the C class chassis so its handling is terrific. The sight-lines are excellent, the acceleration is what one would expect from a Benz, and it gets through the Massachusetts snow with ease (as did our C300).
The only drawback for this vehicle is the gas mileage, which maxes out somewhere near 20 mpg. If you can afford a hybrid engine for this car, then I highly recommend doing so. That may be the only reason why we turn in our car at the end of the lease (at which point we would get another one with a hybrid or diesel engine).
I only get to drive this car a couple of times each month and each time I do I am reminded of what an excellent car this is."
"I can't get her to drive my "free" company car because she loves this car. It has eaten the tires after 25K miles but she is mostly in town. Great car. Lots of fun. AWD is nice for that one snow every three years."
"2015 Black on Black, love the build quality of this SUV mated with the diesel engine it accelerates nicely and its very good on gas. Had knock sensors fail at 18k no parts available in US so it took 3weeks to get the car repaired but the local dealership provided a loaner. So we got to compare to the GLA to the GLK. Wife prefers the GLK body style better."
"Having a problem with windows scratching. There appears to be a problem with the glass. I am 75 years old and had many cars in my adult driving and never experienced this problem. The rear window, front wind shield and the left front window all have scratches. Anyone else experienced this problem ?"
Pros: "excellent apprarance, and interior, smooth ride"
Cons: "smaller back seat space compare to ML350"

"I was debating of getting the Mecedes ML350 or Lexus Rx350 or this Mercedes GL350. After driving Mercedes vs Lexus, I fall in love with Mercedes GL350. It rides so smoothly and the interior is such a beauty that the other 2 cars can't compare. I own a Toyota previously and now I think I am go gears German car. The material is more solid, heavy but rides nice and smoothly. Yes, the back seat is smaller than ML350 but same as Lexus rx350. Overall I love this car."
"This was my first SUV purchased, always had a sedan. We needed extra room for our first grand-child. This SUV is perfect, it's so fun to drive and has all the bells and whistles that Mercedes offer. It's very comfortable and luxurious. Very easy to maneuver, as it's a smaller SUV. Great on gas, and looks good. I'm so happy with my purchase. I do agree with KBB reviews which say there isn't a lot of leg room in the 2nd seat, but it is adequate."
"I'm still waiting for something, anything, to go wrong. Repairs are still near zero.
I get compliments from everyone who sees or rides in my GLK.
Other drivers keep their distance, even in parking lots.
Maybe it's the red color. Maybe it's the wax job. Or maybe it's the MB symbol."
Pros: "stylish, comfortable and great driving vehicle."
Cons: "expensive to service"

"I love this vehicle. I recently purchased it in December after owning the same vehicle without 4matic (not wise in michigan). The ease of driving this vehicle is amazing. It is so easy to maneuver. It is stylish while still being practical for me, a mom with 3 kids to cart around. I like the GL too, but the GLK was a better choice for us at this time, and I am really happy with it. I only wish that it was a standard option to plug in devices to the speakers as it is with most economy vehicles, but that is a manufacturing complaint, not specific to this vehicle. The options are easy to use, and the Blue tooth is great for someone like me that works a lot out of the vehicle. I've driven it all over the country and the gas mileage was great, and it was a comfortable ride the whole way down. Every time I get ready to step into this vehicle I get excited to drive again! Beware though, that you get what you pay for, so be prepared for everything to be more $- but it's worth it!"
Pros: "Fun to drive, lots of power, great in all weather"
Cons: "Not enough cup holders."

"We are buying this vehicle after leasing it for three years, it is my wife's car and she loves it! We like that it does not look like all the other SUV's on the road. Powerful, sporty and fun to drive."
"2010 GLK350 4Matic. This is my fiancé's car. Falling apart after 70,000 miles. Nov 2015: $2,800 repair ($1,500 alternator and $500 spark plugs). $500 to replace six plugs? Incredible. Jan 2016: heater fan/blower died in the middle of winter ($700). I'm 54 years old and I've owned many cars (including BMW). I've never seen a car fall off the cliff after only 70,000 miles. I would strongly advise another SUV."
"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."
