2012 MB GLK 350 4matic with 85k miles. Purchased from the dealership where my wife works with a service contract and GAP coverage. Initially, I was looking at the Honda Ridgeline, but for less than $15,000 I couldn't find one with under 100k miles. Stumbled across the GLK, internet revealed the ought 12 to be the best of the model run. Boxy, with early Subie Forester lines. Reminds me of my '94 Jeep Cherokee. Interior is nicely appointed but Teutonically spartan. I like it. Google images will be way more interesting than what I could post. Best I can tell, mine is the mid trim level; no nav, backup camera, heated seats, fancy rims, or sensors for adaptaive cruise and such. Less stuff to break? Peppy with the 3.5L V6 500 miles since purchase, both city and highway. 19-20 around town, 24-25 highway with cruise at 70. MB claims it's roots are in the G-Wagen, hence GLK = Galendewagen Luxus Kompaktklasse. Yeah right, seems bit of marketing hype, maybe even an over promise and under deliver scenario if I can't make it up the Hinkle Road hill. My minimum requirement was an AWD system to get me home, out of my gently sloping driveway and subdivision, and the occasional unimproved but somewhat graded road / very established trail to a shooting range. After YouTube'ing yesterday, it's remarkable what this little SUV can do in a parking lot. I APOLOGIZE FOR THE BLOOMBERG PREZ ADVERT YOU ARE FORCED TO WATCH
