    Hi,
    We are thinking of trading our 2008 C-300 Lux for ... GLK in 2011.
    C-300 is 182+" long and GLK is 178+" long. GLK is wider (10"?) so it shlud be more room up front.
    Anyone on the forum traded c-300 for GLK? ..... similar interior ......
    If you did ..... are you happy with your decision?
    Thanks.

    My wife traded a 2004 C 320 4Matic for a 2010 GLK 350 4Matic. She loves the GLK! Go for it and good luck.

    We were looking at the C300 Sport prior to deciding on the GLK. The dash and instrumentation are nearly identical. We chose the GLK due to the higher riding height and the increased utility.

    Hi u-all,
    Thanks for sharing your observations.
    For those familiar with the 2008 C-300's dimensions......is the GLK noticeably wider inside?
    ..... Thanks.

  • I was originally thinking of purchasing a C series, but I am rather tall (6'8) and did not fit that well in it. The dealer pointed me to the GLK and I could tell a noticeable difference in interior room. I felt much more comfortable and like I had more room to move around.
  • I finally purchased my GLK today. I think I was able to get a pretty good deal. I got the following:

    Obsidian Blue 4Matic
    Premium Package
    COMAND Navigation
    Heated Front Seats

    MSRP - $44,035, Invoice - $41,615

    Got the car for $39,565 before TTL.

    That is a very good deal. I am sure you will enjoy your new GLK. Good luck!
  • Very good price!! Curious as to where you nailed that deal?
  • Concours Mercedes in Milwaukee, WI. I recommend anyone around the area give them a try. I had a great experience.
  • I am negotiating price with dealer. The best price I can get is 10% off from MSRP. Is it a good deal?
  • Yeah, I would say 10% off MSRP is a pretty good deal. If you give me the options on the GLK you're looking at I can give you the true cost of it as another negotiating point.
  • Thanks, here are options: Panorama Sunroof, Universal Media Interface
  • I'm listing prices for a 4Matic version. If you aren't looking at a 4Matic, just take $1860 off the price.

    Base Paint GLK350 4Matic w/Panoramic Sunroof & UMI

    - Invoice - $38,256
    - True Cost - $36,967

    Metallic Paint GLK350 4Matic w/Panoramic Sunroof & UMI

    - Invoice - $38,926
    - True Cost - $37,613

    If you are a USAA member you can get an additional $1000 off.

    Hello brown1418,

    congratulations for this great deal.

    I'm wondering how did you pay for it? You paid cash or you finance.
    If you did finance, what is the APR rate you got.

    thanks

    I guess it depends on where you are in the country. I'm in SoCal and around here I would consider 13% off MSRP a great deal (others on this forum have gotten that). Yours is 8% off so I think you have a bit more wiggle room. If you can wait until the end of the month, and talk to the fleet/internet manager and not a sales guy, you might be able to save a couple thousand. But then again, they may not have the exact same configuration that you want and you'll end up having to spend more, so it's up to you.

    Hi folks,

    I am trying to find a good deal on GLK 350 in Dallas/Fort Worth area. If anyone finds a good deal like 10% off of MRSP, please advise.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys, we're considering buying GLK, but I was surprised to see complaints about brakes in the user review section. Have you guys experienced any issues with brakes? Also what is considered a good price for MLK + P1 & Media package? would you recommend going for a leather? I'll be going for a test drive tomorrow.
    I'm also considering buying sun roof / navigation / heated seats / instead of package to keep the cost lower.. Any thoughts?

    what should I expect to pay for just a base GLK 350? what's best place to buy in or near phoenix, arizona
  • p0926p0926 Posts: 4,423
    The only "problem" I've noticed with the brakes is the front brakes create a fair amount of brake dust that is a pain to wash off.

    Don't know if they are available for the glk, but there are after market shields that can be mounted on the wheel to minimize dust. Do a google search or ask the dealer.

    Hey all,

    Black MB Tex with Black Exterior, appearance package, Premium 1 Package

    Non-Multimedia Package Navigation

    11,992 miles

    $31,250 plus NJ tax (where I'm registering) and fees

    monthly payment $592 and change with ZERO down

    good deal?

    My dealer offered me invoice + $500 for a 2011 GLK 4 Matic. He indicated the car will come in somtime in July. I am located in Northern NJ and need a car immediately. I didn't want to worry about maintenance costs and he offered a 5 year or 50,000 mile for all scheduled maintenance for $1,900. Any thoughts.
  • storm10storm10 Posts: 175
    2011 GLK will be available for sale this month July. The car will not change much, but there are few noticeable enhancements. You can see all the new 2011 GLK features and options in details here: 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class changes. Also, if you click on the picture - it will take you to 2011 GLK photo gallery.

    2011 models will have better residuals, so they may lease better, than 2010, but if you're trying to purchase/finance I think you can get better deal on the remaining 2010, because you can take advantage of special APR.

    The car needs to be serviced only once a year. Is service for 5 years/ 50k miles or 4years/50k miles?

    I'm looking to get a new GLK350 white W/premium pkg and UMI. I'm showing invoice on that car including the $875 destination to be about $39K. Buying it at invoice would only be 6-7% off MSRP. I'm reading posts here about people getting $5+K off MSRP or >10%. Is that kind of discount still available now in July?
    Secondly, I am not experienced at leasing. I am assuming I can negotiate an at or below invoice deal and then turn around and lease. Thanks for the input.
  • storm10storm10 Posts: 175
    It's good idea to negotiate the selling price regardless if you plan to buy or lease, because lower selling price will reduce your payments on purchase and on lease. I can give you a few suggestions how to get the lowest price, but first I need to know where you are located. What State and City are you at?
  • tonyinnctonyinnc Posts: 6
    Storm,

    Thanks for the assist. I live in Raleigh NC. I realize it is a good idea to negotiate the price down but I am trying to avoid the trap of getting the price down to where I want it and then having them come back with "the current summer lease special is X" which may call for a different selling price.
    More importantly I am trying to get a good idea of what the negotiated selling price should be for hte GLK350 I described. I always that at or around invoice should be a decent deal. However, I am reading other posts where people or getting 10-12% below MSRP which is $2-3K below invoice. Is the market for the GLK350 really that low and can I expect that or is invoice more realistic. Thanks.

    Buy vs Lease: Usually Buying is better than Leasing if you plan to keep your GLK more than 3 years. With leasing, slick dealers WILL get you somehow at the end of the Lease.

    Prices are regionally different. National wide, automaker increase their price about 3-5%. You can get pretty close to your local market price using web site like Edmunds' TMV. This is a perfect time to get good price 2010 GLK, since MB releases 2011 GLK's around 07/14. However, your selection for 2010 GLK's is limited by now. To get 2010 GLK with customer's spec may be a problem. When you shop take in account that new 2011 GLK's have a price increase of about $900US. You would be able to get a loaded 2010GLK at the same price as a mid range 2011GLK at this time. Get a fully loaded vehicle, you won't regret what you miss out years from now.
