  • Sounds like they gave you a good discount off the price and took it back with an under-allow on your trade. Oh well.

    I've got a '11 with 19K I might put up for sale. Trying to decide. It's been a fantastic car, love it for sure.

    We liked it so much she got a C250 Coupe last month. Nice driving car loaded with nice touches. Definitely sport luxury. And it's fast. That little 4-banger is smooth and turboed out for power.

    Just pre-ordered my wife's 2013 GLK350 on 2/2/2013 just made the February window and should have it by April. Here are the options:

    Pebble Grey, Leather Pack "Mocha Leather", Prem Pack, Multimedia Pack, AMG Styling, Lighting Pack, 4MATIC Pack, Driver Assit Pack, Parktronic, HK Sound, Keyless Go, Heated Seats, Brushed Alum. Run Boards, and Trailer Hitch.

    MSRP $59685

    Purchase Price $53975

    9.5% off MSRP in Northern California (SF Bay Area). I'm pretty sure, I could've gotten a better deal, if I would have dealt with multiple dealerships. But, the salesman we first dealt with, made things so easy, wasn't pushy or tried to sell us anything, answered all out questions, and let us test drive several cars that day.

    I did a lot of Internet research prior to meeting with him for the 2nd time to negotiate pricing. I decided just to deal with him because he went out of his way several times to make us feel like a true customer. Really made out first MB experience an excellent one! Overall, we feel we got an excellent deal.

    Did you buy a GLK or a GL? i love my GLK, but couldn't imagine paying $54k for it! There are too many bigger, better options at that price.
  • +1
    $54K for a GLK? OMFG.
    I paid about $20K less for mine and today it's worth about $27K with 20K miles on it. Just plan to keep it awhile. LOL. In two years figure it will be worth about $30K.
    It's a nice little car, but not much different than a RAV4. For that much I would have gone ML350 BlueTec.
    I'm seriously considering trading mine off for a Silverado pickup.

    You should have just gotten a used GL at that price!
  • Yup, New 2013 GLK350W4 fully loaded just the way my wife wanted it. Adding the options adds up. Bigger and better options cost a lot more. She like the look over the GL. To each their own.

    Not looking to buy used. New 2013, with similar options the M class (same engine size and it has similar int. dims) would have been an extra 6.5K and the GL (bluetek) an extra 17K, that's including the 9.5% off MSRP.

    I appreciate everyone's suggestions/bashing but if I wanted to buy something bigger, I would have gone with it. But, this purchase is for my wife and this is what she likes over the others and feels comfortable at the wheel. A happy wife, is a happy life!

    I posted this so others can see what type of pricing is going around the bay area.
  • Do you mind posted price details?

    You have a 2013 version? Compare options to options and then tell me if its $20K less. A Benz is no Rav4, lol. An M class with similar options would have cost me 6.5K more, that includes the discount msrp prices. Plus, my wife liked the GLK over the M class. After all, it's hers!

    I figured it was a typo but I guess MB will load them up any way you want them. You might want to wait for the fire sale on Silverados this summer. When the new one arrives, they'll be giving away the 2013s.

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to offend you. I just hadn't seen a GLK cost that much. When I bought my 2012, I cross-shopped BMW, Acura, Audi and Cadillac. I also looked at the ML but liked the smaller size and better performance of the GLK. I got about 12.5% off on a $45k MSRP. Are you sure they won't go lower?
  • I am getting ready to purchase the GLK hopefully in March. Can you give me some tips how you get such a good price? Someone told me to avoid the salesman due to automatic marked up
  • bwaabwaa Posts: 13
    agreed, I was confused at seeing the price of a GLK at 50,000!
  • You must have been confused by my post. No, mine doesn't have the same options, and it's a '11 not a '13. I'm just saying $50K-plus for a GLK is a LOT, regardless of how it's optioned out. If it makes the buyer happy then it's all good.

    And yes, the GLK is more similar to a Rav4 than different. People get all hung up on what options they THINK they have to have. In the end it's still a little SUV car that will be worth half in a few years.

    The GLK doesn't have an overly high rating by any professional reviewer. It's a nice little car but it's no panacea in 4-wheel motoring. Again, if it makes you happy then it's all good.
  • Finally got my GLK today..Polar White, Mocha/Almond. Pano Roof, Heated Seat, Keyless-Go 15.5% off MSRP...based on what I saw here, I think I got pretty good price. I drove over 45 miles to get it...tried to deal with local dealers, but since they will not disclose price over internet..I had no choice but to deal with someone who would even if I had to drive far. The whole process was a little less than 2 hours...not bad.
