A 2-wheel Gas Guzzler!

2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class GLK350 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 7A)

Review

Leased a 2-wheel drive 2011 GLK-350 from Caliber Motors w/bad lease tuin April this year to replace the 2008 E350 due to too many unsafe blind spots. After driven 3 months of the GLK-350, here are my personal driving experience of this half-breed SUV:Pros:Not too high, not to low, the height is just about right, not too many blind spots as the 2008 E350, better visibility, quiet, good chairs, maneuverability okay Cons:A terrible 2-wheel drive GAS GUZZLER!Gas consumption worse than E350, worse than 1999 ML320.Soft brakes, hesitant accelerating, ugly side mirrors,rear blind spots,worst turning radius, stupid GPS navigator,knob control,small screen,a German JOKE!

Better than our former 2008 E350

Review

We just returned and terminated our 3-year leased 2008 E350 5 months earlier last week and decided to lease this 2-wheel drive GLK-350. We have driven the E350 for the 3rd year but could never get used to it, because every time we got into it, we felt cramped and always got the phobia with lot of blind spots all around, its wheel base is too long to make easy turns into any shopping center entrance opening, as the right rear wheel would often hit and ride on the curb and keep damaging the wheel rim and the tire. The E350 drive side rear-view mirror is equipped with a dark auto-dim film, so it makes the driving at night often impaired and dangerous, and it's a very stupid over-killed fixture.

Autobahn crusing (in real life)

Review

Picked up a GLK 350 2WD on overseas delivery in Stuttgart in late March and drove it around southern Germany for a week. Autobahn crusing was effortless, but had to keep it down for breakin mileage. Car was quiet as a vault, controls were intuitive and easy to use. Visibility and comfort were remarkable. Rear luggage area was large enough on the floor for two HUGE suitcases (loaded to maximum airline capacity). Cannot wait for the car to arrive at the dealer. Would highly recommend overseas delivery. 2 for 1 Lufthansa airfare, 7% off the sticker, no destination charge, 2 free nights in $300 plus/night true luxury hotels, 15 days free insurance, full tank of gas, tour of factory, etc. Great.

This Benz is a Babe

First, I am not into labels, so the MB brand name was not top of mind when I discovered this gem. It has an incomparably smooth ride, is very pleasing on the eye and is loaded with great features at a reasonable price (as far as luxury vehicles go). Just got back from the desert and on a very windy day, this solid vehicle didn't sway or feel pushed. It has good pick- up and I can't wait to finish reading the manuals to learn all the gadgets. Looking forward to a long relationship.

Review

I've only had it for a short time but so far it is a blast to drive. It feels very solid, handles like a sports car, reeks of quality and durability, and is actually not too bad on gas. Not as good as my Eclass, but still decent for a truck. I wanted an SUV type of a vehicle but not a vehicle that was too big or too clumsy. This is the perfect car for me and just makes sense. The utility of an SUV with the handling of a sports car and not a major gas hog like other larger SUVs. The cabin is extremely quiet while driving in varied road conditions, and that's even with the 20 inch AMG wheel package. The navigation is easy to use and the sound system is fantastic.

Was looking to down size our SUV and found the GLK a great option AMG package set it off! Drives like a sports car with feel of an SUV. I've been a truck/American muscle guy my whole life and the GLK might have won me over!

This SUV is just amazing

Review

I purchased the 2011 GLK 350 after several test drive comparisons with the competition from Europe and Japan. None of them impressed me nearly as much as the GLK 350. The ride seems actually smoother then our 2008 E350 and the handling is excellent. The engine power transfer and output is great and the handling is responsive and precise. The shift and instruments controls are well placed, simple and easy to use. I am amazed that Mercedes is offering this SUV at such a low price. In my opinion it is the best value in the SUV market not just in the premium SUV class. We just came back from a sightseeing trip and couldn't be happier with this SUV.
