Bought this car five months ago. Tried to start it one morning it was totally dead. Mercedes’s said it was a bad battery they put in a new one and I drove it home. Next morning totally dead again. Mercedes told me I must be leaving the lights on. Now it’s been in the shop for almost a month now and they have no idea what’s wrong. They put in a new computer and when they did that it blew up the fuse box so they ordered a new fuse box and now they said there is something wrong with the power steering. Another crazy thing is that they gave me a loaner glc and there is something wrong with this one too. It makes a very Loud engine noise sounds like one of the fans. Sounds like a space ship taking off.
We found the GLC 300 SUV to be very noisy on the highway and had control issues during windy conditions. Also there may be a continuing problem with brake noise. Other aspects of the vehicle were excellent.
I have now driven the vehicle for about 18 months. Overall, I really like this SUV. The ride is smooth, quiet and comfortable. The excelleration is great as is the handling. I have two main problems. First, the technology is difficult to navigate and should be a lot simplier go use. For example, I think that the remote start is ridiculous. Instead of making it simply by just pushing a button like other much less expensive vehicles, you have to go to this long convoluted process that takes much too long. In fact, I've had a separate remote starter installed because I got so annoyed. Second, my GLC does not have a spare tire. The factory tires can drive flat for about 50 miles. But if you experience a flat on some of the nation's highways, you may much more than 50 miles from a dealer. This can, and has ruined 2 days of a trip for me. It seems that for the cost of this vehicle a spare should be provided.
This Suv is amazing.The ride in any mode is great. My only issue is the sound system I like 80's funk but I'm not feeling the Funky Bass. I would like to thank Mercedes in Long Beach for a wonderful Experience. Joel your service and attention to detail is much appreciated.
