2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class GLK350 4MATIC 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 7A)


Review

My wife likes the vehicle and it looked good on the showroom. Ours was specially ordered and shipped with most options. Disappointments are the brake system, extreme dead travel, I actually rear ended (bumped) another car. The brakes have not worked correctly to the point where when we got home you could see heavy smoke from the front disks and they were red hot. The computer must erratically actuate the brakes at normal highway speeds and it causes the car to swing from side to side and makes the transmission labor intensively and the engine temperature starts climbing. This has happened a handful of times and we have taken it in for service and nothing can be found that is abnormal. No good.


Best Features

Sound system, quiet ride.


Worst Features

Brakes, gas mileage best on highway is 15, city even worse, needs improvement. Leg room back seats. Headlights not as good as E320. Erratic electrical problems, light bulbs burning out. Too much side to side swing, it wobbles driving down the road.

Review

After each driving it for 10mn, both my wife and I were sold to this little marvelous SUV. Quality of the workmanship is visible in every details. Engine with 268 HP, 250 pounds of torque and the 7 speed automatic transmission are a perfect match to deliver plenty of power when needed. Car handling is similar to a sporty sedan, extra eight of an SUV is not felt at all. We look at Q5, X60, X3 which are great vehicles but they are no match for what the GLK delivers overall.


Best Features

Great performance, good braking, low noise level, double panoramic sunroof, compactness of the vehicle. I read reviews complaining about cramp rear seats, I will agree for long ride but its ok for short commute to school even with 6'1'' boys like we have.


Worst Features

+ 2'' rear legroom for long ride. MB should offer the European diesel engine in option since it has a much better mpg than gas one.

Review

My wife fell in love with this vehicle immediately. I too was very impressed. Everything about our vehicle is great except for the brake - - too much dead travel. I had several close call with rear ending another vehicle. We even took the vehicle in for brake pad replacement, but the result is the same. They say that it performs and functions to factory specification. I guess, we just have to get used to braking early. Overall, get luxury vehicle and worth the extra money over its Japanese competition -- rather no comparison.


Best Features

Very quiet interior and subtle thump going over potholes and rough roads.


Worst Features

More responsive brakes without dead travel and a bit more leg room in the rear.

Review

The reviews that say the GLK is built like a tank are spot on. This thing is solid! The GLK's exterior look is polarizing (love it or hate it) but I like the boxy shape since it denotes function over form. There are way too many "SUVs" that are all curvy but at the expense of usable cargo space. I bought the GLK because I wanted something that was extremely safe to drive, was well built, had decent handling, good acceleration and offered a fair amount of utility. I did not buy it because I wanted to get good gas mileage, needed to haul more than 4 adults or lots of cargo. Given those parameters, I am extremely satisfied with the GLK thus far.


Best Features

Moonroof, Command package, Premium package, MB Tex negates the need to pay extra for leather.

Review

I tested several small SUV before I bought this car. I have to admit it i love driving this car. The GLK is very fun to drive, classy and it handle very well. The onlything is that the leg room in the back is kind of small. I wish they add a couple more inch in the back.


Best Features

Everything...i love it


Worst Features

Leg room for back seat
