Review

I love this car. It feels like it's been carved from a solid block of steel. Absolutely nothing rattles. I've had this car for a year and nothing has gone wrong with it. It has great acceleration and it handles the road well for an SUV. If anything, the steering is too lively when you first drive it. I get 22 mpg on the highway (80 mph)and 16 mpg in the city. Mine is black with the 19" wheels and the dealer threw in tinted windows. The car looks so much better in person than it does in photographs. I test drove a Lexus, Land Rover, and BMW. I liked this SUV better. I have read other people here complain about brakes, but my brakes have been fine. It's done everything I've asked of it.


Favorite Features

Build quality. Acceleration and suspension.


Suggested Improvements

The back seat is tight getting into, but I don't ride back there. If anything, it should have heated seats for a Mercedes.

Review

Don't buy Mercedes. I have S550 and GLK350 Both purchased new. The S550 got very bad transmission when shift in automatic from 2nd to 3rd gear. Engine vibrate and shake the whole car when unexpected. Rear tires only last 10K miles. it always wear out in the center, I use recommended tire pressure of 35psi. GLK350 Very bad paint job. The clear coat got dust all over the car. The hood gap on left and right are at least 1/2 different. It's a brand new car, this kind of gap only happens on car with front end accident. You don't expect these problem from brand new Mercedes!

Review

I had this SUV for a year now and I must admit that MB has not yet sorted out transmission and brakes on this model. It seems that "electronic brain" is not governing transmission shifts correctly and is very evident during "stop and go" traffic: 1-to-2 gear shift, during downshift or at brake time. Just touching the brakes, creates an immediate and unnecessary downshift, sometimes more than one gear. Good vehicle for someone who does not care how it drives - just gets there. Although, it is very good in the snow. During cold weather, electronic cluster displays erroneous messages (Low Coolant and Washer Level) and front shocks made strange noise, until the car warms up.


Favorite Features

Innovative styling and the good old reliable engine. Generally, MB engines are silky smooth with ample power.


Suggested Improvements

Sort out transmission, braking and electronics issues.

Review

Great service at the dealer, got hypnotized by the Mercedez salesman. Got the car, big disappointment. The fuel economy is the worst, no leg room in the rear seat. Can't go on a long trip with this car. You have to press brakes long before stopping. No luxurious at all. Front seats very small. 6' male won't fit. This is not a suv feels, this is like a little car, just to go and buy groceries. Just because it got the Mercedez emblem, that's not mean is driven and feel like a Mercedez. Doesn't come with seat warmers, to open the car you'll would have to open all the locks, not just the drivers. You'll have to open the locks, when in vehicle to release passengers in back seat. Big mistake.
