Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK has been a great success in the compact luxury SUV segment. It is the best seller!
To further enhance this great design, Mercedes is introducing the AMG Styling Package. This package will be available to order in January and includes:
The AMG Styling Package will be priced at $1,970.
The Univeral Media Interface or UMI has generated a lot of interest and questions since it was launched for the C-Class and GLK last year. There have been some complaints about the system being slow and Mercedes has addressed that and launched the new and improved Nav + 4 with enhanced performance and funtionality.
Nav + 4 has the same features as UMI:
1 – Navigation with free live traffic
2 – iPod/iPhone Interface
3 – USB Interface
4 – AUX Interface
5 – Bluetooth Audio Streaming
The improvements to the system are:
5 times faster route calculation
5 times faster destination entry
5 times faster zooming
Day/Night changeover in real time
Updated navigation data
Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico included
New functionality includes:
Reality View Pro (highway signs)
Traffic Lane Assist Pro (road splits)
Enter destination via map
This adaptor has been a little hard to find for some of my clients. Luckily, Mercedes has come out with their own. Called the PCMCIA Multi-Card Reader, it is priced at $102 and the part number is 6-7-82-3974. You should be able to order one from your local parts department.
A quick Google search will come up with cheaper readers that are meant to do the same thing, but these are meant to work with laptops and aren’t guaranteed to work with your car like the Mercedes version is. Also, I haven’t personally tested the Mercedes adapter with the larger SDHC cards so it may not read those.
We just purchased a 2010 GLK350 4matic for our pre-owned department.

Or, for an extra $1000, we can make it a Certified Pre-Owned Car and it will have an extra year of warranty on up to 100,000 miles. A 5 year, 100,000 mile extended warranty on a new car would cost more than $3000!
“While the satellite radio and iPod interface will keep you entertained in traffic, the superb drivetrain will put a smile on your face when you finally get out of town.”
“The transmission rocks.”
“On the track, the 3.5-liter V-6 hustled the Benz to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds. Stops were equally impressive: 60 to 0 mph in just 124 feet. “
“Merging and passing on the freeway are effortless, and the GLK can pull off a 15.0-second quarter-mile at 92.9 mph.”
“The GLK still offers plenty of cargo space behind the rear seats. It’s wide enough to place golf bags sideways in the rear and roomy enough to accommodate lots of large luggage pieces. “
“On the asphalt, it’s sure to please luxury-loving drivers with its compliant ride and tight handling, as well as its spacious interior and high-tech features.”
We are also expected to get a lease special from Mercedes-Benz financial for under $500/month on the GLK! I do still have the White demonstrator GLK350 here for you to see and drive!
The UMI gives non-multimedia cars navigation, live traffic, ipod adaptor, usb port and bluetooth music streaming. It can be installed at the dealership for about $1850. If you know you want this option you can now order your car with it and it will be installed at the Vehicle Preparation Center (VPC) before it is shipped to the dealership. The VPC installation reduces the labor cost which is why it is less expensive when you order it than when you add it later.
