I was skeptical when I traded my ML350 for the GLK350. But, the GLK is much easier to handle. I'm not sure how reliable it will be. My ML was only 2 years old with only 6100 miles on it and ESP, Ignition, and Brakes were all problems. I would have bought a Honda, but they would not take the ML on trade. So, MB bought it back at Half the price I paid (29K, paid 59K), and that was only if I bought another MB. I'm hoping for better luck with the GLK. At least this time I only spent 40K.
