So why did I buy this car? Firstly, because of the excellent service I received from MB on 2 previous vehicles. My last car was a Porsche, what a nightmare ! The GLK feels solid, quality exudes from it. "Made in Germany". MB has gone back to it's roots of an exceptional quality product. On the other hand the Porsche was just a money pit. I put $8,000.00 into it last year alone. replaced the horns 2 times ( which involved taking the front bumper off first ) Oil Change $500.00, Clutch went twice in 5 yrs at $2,500 a pop ... electrical, ignition ... it just kept coming ... But for Mercedes, Solid as a rock !!!
I like the way the've bucked the trend and gone with retro-modern for the styling. A masculine edge. With the upgraded 20" wheels and Sport package. This is one great looking vehicle. I don't care what any wussy round edge loving journalist say. This is a fantastic looking machine !
This is a car I would never be ashamed to pull into my driveway. Can't say the same for the competition.
Although you have to look at much more than just the car. Even if this is a wonderful machine. I see some "know it all" journalists voted the Porsche Cayenne as best SUV.
Try getting any form of reasonable service from Porsche.
Mercedes gives you a Mercedes as a loaner when you go in for warranty service. You're lucky if Porsche gives you a Skoda ! So be very weary my friends.
Know that these auto reviews don't base anything on dealership service, but I guarantee that you will !
And Yeah, Yeah, the 3 pointed star goes a long way...
Mostly because it has represented excellence for years. Yes, the whole Chrysler thing was a huge mistake. But MB is way past that now. Great companies learn from their mistakes. All I can say is. What a great machine !
At an excellent price. quality, value. You just can't go wrong.
GLK is the machine for me !
