The keyless go and sport appearance pkg were definitely worth it, but the rest is just fluff.
I would imagine puchase deals are similar.
Purchase Price $38,900 (discount of $5455 inc Conquest)
60 month loan, 2.99% (Dealer discounted 1 point from their typical Mercedes rate here in Arizona for credit scores of 760+)
Traded-a 2008 Infinit EX35 with $55k miles for $19,000. EX35 was in Very Good Condition, but not Outstanding.
KBB Trade-in is $16,800k Fair - $20,275 Outstanding.
KBB Private Party Sale Value is $19,200 - $22,600
Here in AZ cars generally go for about 10% back of book on Trades, Private Party and Dealer Retail. I probably could have sold the car Private Party for $20,000+/-
Trading-in for $19,000 also saved me $1672 in sales tax. So, I would have had to sell the car for $20,672 to do better than I did trading it in for $19,000.
I actually believe the dealer pumped the Trade-in value up $1000 to make it look better and to not make it look as though they discounted their car so much.
Meaning the deal could have been structured like this and cost exactly the same.
Purchase Price $37,900 (Discount of $6455)
Which dealership in AZ did you buy your GLK? We looked in Chandler last weekend. The model metallic grey we looked did not have the multimedia package. So thinking about going for one with Multimedia package and i think there are only 2 colors , white and black.
So what was the total OTD cost on the vehicle?
Will appreciate your response.
$19,855 due after trade + the usual non-negotiable items:
Doc fee ($489)
A couple of additional points.
1) They credited the unused portion of the Registration on the EX35, so it ended up being $422, not $750.
2) Ther Finance Manager offered 66 months at the same 2.99% rate, so I took it.
I am hearing they'll be showing up at dealerships in mid-August.
I also e-mailed Mercedes and asked when the "Build Your Own" 2013 GLK would go live and they said mid-August.
We are shopping at 2013 X3 against the new GLK... and are waiting to see the car before deciding.
20 months and 15K, mine has never been back to the dealer. Just a fantastic car, still love it to death. Would love to have a crd diesel. We may end up buying ours at lease end - 39mo.
The bimmer is a nice car, probably a little more performance oriented (we have a 325) while the benzo is more luxo oriented. To me that's the basic difference in philosophies of the two companies, not that either is completely one way or the other.
Our 325 'vert is a '01 with 106K and is still a very nice solid car. Not recommended though unless you can do your own maint and repairs. It has been said that owning any of these cars out of warranty is suicide. I survive as a shade-tree mech.
My money would be on the GLK. BTW, lots of leases coming back, so if you want to save about 40% and get a great car, a CPO might be something to consider.
I will be comparing this to the X3 and Q5. I drove the SRX but didn't like the overall driving position and size. I'm driving a BMW 135i convertible now but am thinking about getting into something higher off the ground and more versatile for carrying things around and going into the mountains during the winter, etc.
Let me know what you think after you've had a chance to test and compare.
Keep in mind the GLK is not a sports car. Definitely a smallish SUV. It drives like a Mercedes Benz, good or bad. I would guess both of the others are going to handle a little better.
Personally I would not own an Audi. I will never forget the 100LS or the 5000. Will never forgive them for those abominations.
The bimmer is a great car. You really just have to decide if you're a Mercedes guy or a BMW guy. For me it was a no-brainer, I'm a Mercedes guy. The wife? She's a BMW gal, so that's what she would choose.
They are both great cars. You really can't go wrong either way.
Purchase Price $35,500 (discount of $5500)
Traded-a 2010 GLK with $12k miles for $23,800. KBB Trade-in is Excellent: $27100 Very good $26600 good $25700
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.
Premium pkg, nav, appearance and heated seats
Absolutely love it!

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.
$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.
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.
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.
You can't circumvent the salesperson. If you approach upper management they will assign a salesperson at some point.
All bets are off if you have a trade in. Then the games start.
Try shopping the last 2 days of the month. The dealers get more flexible when trying to make their monthly quota.
