Wow! What a ride!

I am 71 years old and have had many luxury cars. None of them can compare to this vehicle when considering many factors, especially cost. This vehicle is comfortable, quiet, fuel efficient, lots of cargo space, and the base model provides sufficient luxuries unless you're a "Technology Junkie." The V6 268 horsepower is indeed a proper mix for this vehicle. I added only a few luxuries to make this "my vehicle." I am six feet tall and find most other vehicles in this class are difficult to enter and exit. Not this vehicle. I recommend this vehicle for a couple or small family. You will not be disappointed.

I buy an new car every two years and this is my 20th car to own since i bought my first. It has the most solid feel/bank vault like. At 20, 000 miles, it has not one rattle, has not seen the Mercedes dealer once. I do my own service. It has a smooth ride, excellent power and is quite. My gas mileage has been better than reported at 25/hwy. I may actually keep this one longer than usual because of how much i enjoy driving it. I would highly recommend the GLK.

Wow, wada ride. test driving the e300 and we pulled into the dealership and my wife fell head over heels for her new GLK350. Took it on a test/sold ride and it was right back to the dealership to trade in our 07 corvette and 07 tahoe z71.. this vehicle sold itself. black exterior with the tan interior. didnt get all the bells and whistles because they werent needed..This is a SUPER fun midsize to drive weather your running to the grocery store or loading some luggage to go on a road trip. peepy v6 and some good gas milage.i like to borrow it every now and then and just drive. really amazing midsize!

cpo 2011 glk after 10k miles

solid, reliable mini suv. average 26mpg highway, 19mpg suburban. im retired and use mostly as a long distance highway cruiser. drives like a bank vault on wheels. easy to use controls. brakes have saved me a couple of times. like all german cars feels best above 80mph, sigh. why i rated it 4 star: sunroof (solid roof hard to find) too thin & heats up car too much, rear seat leg room a tad too tight, wonder if 3.0 liter engine would give better mpg for not much less pep, seems high priced if bought new so cpo is way to buy. all that said, i highly recommend if buyer is empty nester or doesnt use rear seat much. so far no gremlins or glitches. when i consider to trade it in, i cant find a peer (q5, x3, xc60) that is as solid a value as the glk.

Nice Car

by from Dale City, VA on June 2, 2014

This is probably the best car I have ever owned. The only problem is the gas tank is to small. Every thing else is great.

GLK350 w/ AMG package

I prefer to drive a sportscar but needed a utility vehicle for commuting to work and hauling around a baby. This fits the bill perfectly for me. Doesn't burn gas like a full size SUV (my trip is reading 21.6 mpg avg so far), and I've heard this truck was built on a C-class platform which I guess explains why it sits low to the ground and drives and handles like a sportscar. Best of both worlds. A great sports-ute that is so much fun to drive and has plenty of power for maneuvering on the highway. I have navigation, bluetooth, ipod connectivity, satellite radio and the upgraded amg package with 20" wheels and trim. Arctic white on black.....this truck is gorgeous, sporty, fun and solid. Plan to see at least a 45K sticker on this car after adding desirable options. Well worth it for a new benz in my opinion. My third MB and all three have been reliable. Love it!

I drove the Lincoln and Cadillac crossovers before buying this reliable and fun to drive alternative. The Lincoln was all plastic in and out and the one I test drove had pieces of ventilation loose and an acceleration problem that caused me to pull over on the freeway and call for help. The Cadillac SRX had a stupid pop-up navigation window that blocked sightline thru the dash (how stupid is that) and a very metallic/ugly trim thing inside that made it look too loud. The sight lines were terrible. It drove nice though. For the money the GLK oushone these cars by a long shot. Avoid the black MB tex interior and go for leather as it heats up like an oven whenever the sun shines. Hard to find leather is worth the extra money and wait.

Great Value and Quality from Merc

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 !

Great Vehicle. Everything about it exudes quality. Plenty of power. Technology Package and Harmon Kardon Stereo are excellent. Bluetooth phone connection. Rear view camera, ipod connect, parking assist ... My office on wheels ... Great Safety Features. Too many feature to mention. Solid MB quality that you can feel on the road. Mercedes Benz Service is the best I have experienced. Two Thumbs Up !
