I recently purchased the GLK. In the process of buying the car I test drove everything. It took me months to make up my mind. I should mention the criteria for choosing this car. Size, Speed, Comfort, Visibility,road noise, interior noise and I would be lying if I didn't say status. I came from a C280, so the controls were all placed in a familiar location. The ride is smooth and quick to handle. I should also mention I sold my VW Toureg. That VW handled the road beautifully but it was too big for my size (f 5'6" 140 lbs.) also every-time I turned around the battery went dead or the tire pressure warning would appear on the dash! So I wanted 1 vehicle to do all that and handle NE winters-
It has all the bells and whistles except back up camera, so I guess I'll be parking the old fashion way by turning my head. The controls are simple to understand, I bought it before winter so I am hoping it performs well on my icy steep driveway- I'll keep you posted.
