Bought this used and was told it had Bluetooth well it only works for phone calls and I am having issues with getting the phone book to pull my contacts. Went by the dealer they told me they had a software update for it. I didn't have time to stay so hopefully that fixes the second issue. But I am stuck using a aux? My Firs rental has Bluetooth audio but not my MB?? Outside of that the car rides smooth over bumps and has great handling. Gas is okay but wish it was better. Quality materials and nice metal accents.
Great so far. Ride is smooth, quiet and acceleration in Sport Mode is excellent. I would like to refute a few negative points that I read prior to buying. 1)the backseat- yes it is small and most times a tall driver will have to put his seat up for someone to even sit behind him. However, unless you have a family, realistically how many times do you really have people in the back? If you do have a family there are plenty of other options(ML, GL etc) 2) Fuel Economy- It's not terrible. about 22 highway/15 city for me so far I laugh when people spend 40,000 on a car and then complain about gas. If you have 40K to spend you shouldn't be sweating gas. if you are, get a Honda CRV or Civic.

I think they are addressing them in 2013. Mainly a Diesel with great fuel econ and a slightly more efficient V6.
Fast, fun-to-drive, small and VERY comfortable. 09 X3 was practically falling apart at 58,000 miles, but GLK is essentially a tall C-Class, which are extremely reliable.
X3 also had mediocre front seats, while GLK uses C Class seats, which are outstanding for even long distance. The car is also smooth and quiet, with handling that again feels more like a C Class sedan than an SUV.
4Matic all-wheel-drive, "tall C-Class" interior and driving dynamics.
Modernize the electronics to match the latest 2012 C Class sedan.
Uses the same audio and dash electronics as my old 2009 C300, including the iPod cable that only charges older iPods (adapter can allow charging of modern iPod/iPhone).

We traded our 07GL450, which was less than a stellar benz...see suspension... I was skeptical when we were looking around with the GL in service, but was absolutely impressed with the GLK. Fun to drive...Not horrible with storage. We sacrificed our third row seats, but with the gas we were spending this was well worth it. So far the gas mileage is better than average even in the city. As for the ride the GL reminded me more of a lexus. The suspension is a little firmer but it rides awesome. I also have an 11 C300 and MB has done a great job with this platform.
Fit finish and AMG package. Makes the car look great.
I had a Volvo XC60. Within 2 years, it was a rattletrap. I have gone back to MB with the GLK350 4Matic and love it. Solid - go over bumps and no rattles, just a solid thump. Command launch package gives you everything in Multi-media except for rear-view camera for 2K less. Ride is great. The car fits like a glove and is comfortable for hours
Command navigation, voice control, power rear hatch, exhaust/engine sound. Quiet and well built.
trying to find a car with the exact options you want is difficult as most are built with similar combinations of packages.
