Customer Testimonial – 2013 Mercedes-Benz C250!

I don’t buy cars very often and tend to over-analyze the situation, when I do. I had been looking around, looking under the hood, and kicking tires at all major dealership of decent cars and finally showed up at Atlanta Classic Cars facility where I was introduced to Jesse. I like salespeople who know their stuff and can answer questions in detail and over the course of next couple days I posed all kind of queries and test drove all models, even the ones I knew I could not perhaps afford. Jesse was very patient and knowledgeable and helped me find a car that fits my needs perfectly.

2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec Reviews

2013 GLK250 bluetec

Everyone is reviewing the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 Bluetec right now! It is a great combination of efficiency, power and good looks. Here is a roundup:

My First GLK250 Bluetec Owner

“I did not expect to be this impressed! I knew I would like it…but this is even better than I hoped for!”

Autoguide

“After two hours on some of southern Michigan’s twisting rural roads the car topped 35 miles per gallon.”

Autoweek

“The engine is so refined and insulated from the cabin that it’s hard to detect  any “dieselness.” Brakes are responsive, the steering steady and sure, the body  control good. Nothing seems to upset the serenity of the driving experience,  much like the unwavering steadiness of its big brother GL.”

Edmunds

“Moving the GLK250 Bluetec at a fairly snappy pace is a new 2.1-liter, four-cylinder twin-turbodiesel mated to Mercedes’ seven-speed automatic transmission. The package delivers 200 horsepower and an impressive 369 pound-feet of torque and Mercedes estimates 0-60 acceleration at 7.9 seconds.”

Newsday

“The sophistication of the GLK’s ride and handling are impressive. The GLK handled southeast Michigan’s moonscape roads with amazing smoothness, damping out the majority of the cratered surfaces even at higher speeds.”

Crave Online

“The advantages of diesel engines are numerous, and most American drivers have no clue about the upsides. Such power-plants are more efficient than standard engines, improving mileage and overall energy output. They’re more reliable because they don’t need a high powered electrical ignition system. They run cooler, cleaner and longer – all while being easier to supercharge.”

Autoblog

“The GLK250 BlueTEC 4Matic starts at $38,590, which falls in the middle of the $37,090 GLK350 and $39,090 GLK350 4Matic. Our fully optioned tester rang in at $50,485, and before you guffaw, know that an Audi Q5 Hybrid starts at $50,900 – that’s without a single option box ticked.”

Me

“Please come drive the GLK250 yourself if you have doubts. It is amazing! I love it!”

A Video Tour of the Mercedes-Benz Factory in Tuscaloosa, Alabama!

European Delivery is a popular option for sedan and convertible buyers but my SUV owners don’t have that option because most SUVs are built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Mercedes-Benz US International factory is award-winning, constantly expanding and world-class. Come on Mercedes-Benz, show it off! Give us an Alabama Delivery option!

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Videos

Mercedes CLA45 AMG

I never really thought of myself as an AMG driver. Obviously they are amazing vehicles and I love to drive them on the track…I just couldn’t envision myself needing that much power on a daily basis. However, the CLA45 AMG seems to be calling my name! That is a LOT of look and a LOT of power for not a lot of money. It will arrive stateside later this year…I might be ready for an upgrade by then!

Check out these videos and let me know if you need to pre-order!
