#16 of 25 real time traffic info
Aug 07, 2009 (7:57 am)
I have my car loaded with navigation package. Does this comes with real time traffic info? I don't have it but seen it on my friends GLK 350. They have the same package with no extra service. And their rearview camera somehow looks different as well. Anyone cld explain? Do i need to pay extra service fee to get traffic info?

I looked to lease a x3 and was not happy with the ride or the interior, it did look cheep, I drove a 318 I before and enjoyed that ride, but I ended up purchasing the GLK 350 because of the design and the interior I think MB did a great job. I'm very picky when it comes to purchasing a car and MB and my sale person did help me locate the color and extras I wanted in the car I was able to customize the vehicle with the options I wanted and able to get it within a week. I've had the car for two weeks and so far I have to say its the best ride I had in a long time. If you are looking to purchase one don't think to much they are running out. our deeler only had two in the price that I wanted 41,000 all were 33,500 or 48,000

Had at ticking/tapping noise coming from the rear. Took a while to find it.
When I leave the cargo cover in open position, it bounces, causing a tapping sound.
I keep it closed from that time, no more tapping sound.
#19 of 25 Reset Service Message

I had my 10,000 service done by a third party and they did not reset the service message. Can I do this or must I take it to a Mercedes dealer?

#21 of 25 iPod not so integrated
Jan 10, 2010 (2:26 am)
So I just bought a GLK at the Rocklin, California dealership in Northern California. I was under the impression and of course the dealer helped in this impression that you can use an iPod or iPhone to play your songs over the vehicles audio system. What they failed to mention and what I failed to ask (I guess I thought for once there might be one honest person in the world) was if I could change songs. One would think this is an obvious thing you should be able to do right? I guess the engineers at Mercedez didn't think so. I can plug in my iPod or iPhone but I have no ability to change songs or to even navigate the playlists or do anything but plug the device in and have it play the last song I was playing on it and continue to play my entire playlist and then just stop.
I drove a Ford Fusion last summer that had better technology integration than this and it cost less than half this car. I just can't understand why they would give you a cable to use for the iPod when it serves the same purpose as you plugging the headphone jack into the side of the glovebox. The only reason I can see for this is to trick the customer into buying a car that is "integrated with iPod" when really it isn't.
I don't know if anyone else has experienced this or not but I am so horribly dissatisfied at this point with the whole vehicle. My previous vehicle was a 2008 BMW 135i and its continuous maintenance problems aside the iPod integration was virtually seamless. I could browse all of my songs by playlist or artist etc.. just as you would expect to be able to use the device. I guess I thought this was the standard for iPod kits for higher end vehicles like Mercedez and BMW. I guess not.

There was an SLK reviewer a couple years back who also was complaining about the lack of functionality with his iPod. However, he figured out (or someone from MB pointed it out to him) how to manipulate the iPod and select songs via the steering wheel controls. I don't remember the specifics but I'm pretty confident that the GLK has the same capability. I suggest you check with your dealer rep to get detailed directions.

Appanrently this is not the case. I have no problem on selecting playlist or changing songs on my iphone. My dealer did tell me that some owners had problem to sync their iphone with the vehicles (bz car is ipod compatible only), but i was luck and had no problem to plug in my iphone. Call your dealer and ask them how.
#24 of 25 cooling fan noise excessive
Jun 07, 2011 (4:21 am)
Can anyone verify just how loud the cooling fan should be when you place the cars AC on Max or if and when if might come on. This is my wifes SUV and just the other day when she started up the car to leave the house after just getting home, it was make a excessive roar from under the hood (cooling fan). This is a 2010 and we bought it brand new. Thought I would try a Mercedes this time, price wise was a good thing vers BMW. I have a 1999 BMW 3 series and have had little problems with it, but BMW didn't want to deal with the price for a new SUV.
#25 of 25 music from iphone in GLK 350
Mar 22, 2013 (7:31 am)
I just got a GLK 350 and I cannot figure out how to listen to music from my iphone 4S. It has a jack in the glove compartment, but don't know how to switch from radio or cd to iphone music.
The car does not have navigation system.
