Most advanced car I have ever owned.

This car is great and handles well, it's summer now I know I am good for the summer, can't wait to see how it handles in the winter.


It IS the most reliable vehicle we have owned...

We traded in our GLK (2011) for the replacement GLC 300...We loved the GLK, but it was approaching 100,000 miles and decided to trade it in for the new GLC 300. We couldn't be happier. It exceeded our expectations. Room, handling and response are all excellent. Plenty of space for all our stuff and the gas mileage is outstanding.


No room in the backseats

I purchased the 2016 glc and returned it 3 months later. The back seat has no leg room and interior feels to small also with only 53k miles check engine light came on benz don’t make cars like the use too this is my third and last suv with them I’m going to Lexus



It was WAY bigger then I expected plenty of leg room,3rd rows seating plus the panoramic roof..LUV IT!! This exceeded my expectations and when driving at night seems like it comes alive with all the extra lighting.So AWESOME!!!


Great buy! Used but not abused...

Bought after test driving Audi Q5 and others in the same field. Let the first owner get soaked on the initial depreciation. I’m expecting 5-6 years out of my 2016 year model. Probably many more than that!


Best CPO in 20 Years

My wife's 2017 GLC 4 Matic had 19000 miles on it when we bought it in 2018. The Certified Pre-Owned Warranty covers the remaining TIME on the original warranty but with UNLIMITED MILES. Since we do 30K miles a year, not only did we save substantially on the CPO price but we got bumper-to-bumper coverage over 90K--based on our driving. The car rides high like bigger SUV's but averages close to 27 mpg overall with 9 speeds and a very zippy 241 HP. We have had no problems with this vehicle in 9 months of use including a 5000 round trip to New England. The 4 Matic works smoothly in snow and on ice. The interior is classy looking and the Navigation and huge screen interface can be a bit tricky to figure out. We recommend this vehicle to SUV drivers and we especially recommend the CPO purchase procedure for savings with extended protection if you drive a lot.


Should have returned it within the week!

From the time I purchased the car the brakes have squealed like a pig being tortured when they are cold. Brought it back and was told that they were aware of the situation and were waiting on a recall or fix. Okay, I can be patient. Several months later, nothing resolved. Talk to a different mechanic and he directs me to a fix that Mercedes is aware of! Take the vehicle back to Mercedes only to be told that since it's a wear item they don't cover it. Had I been told up front that they were not going to correct their problem I would not have kept the car. Oh well, lesson learned...back to Lexus!


3 major mechanical failures in under 50K miles

3 MAJOR engine failures, service mechanic says it's "engineering problem" w/tight tolerances Horrible driver interface with navigation and phone and ipod. Pairing doesn't always work


Love my GLC

I bought this car because i had it as a loaner. I fell in love with it and had to buy it next. This car is very comfortable with a smooth ride.


Most reliable car I?ve owned

Everything you want in a car. Loaded with lots of features. I couldn?t be any happier with it. Drives smooth and everything is at your fingertips. You don?t need to take your eyes off of the road
