A New Member from Huntington, WV.

I just picked up my new 2010 GLK350 from my dealer, Fannin Mercedes in Ashland, Kentucky yesterday.
Great dealership, very courteous people helped ease the panic of buying a new car.
Bought Steel Gray with 4 Matic.
My first Mercedes ever.
I am curious if it lives up to the Mercedes legend.

Teamkenova - I honesty hope that your experience with Fannin continues to be great. Mine started out that way as well, I couldn't believe how attentive they were when I ordered my 2010 E550 4-matic. From August (when I ordered it) to late November (when I picked it up) they were great to let me know what was going on with production and shipping. At the dealership when we picked it up - again, so attentive.

Now? Not so much. The car arrived with a couple of small scratches, nothing major, but I wanted them to be fixed. I was all but accused of causing them myself (one is on the roof just over the back right passenger door). and they've done nothing so far to repair them. We made an appointment in mid-December to have them fixed, only to show up and find that they hadn't bothered to order the paint. (We live in Parkersburg, by the way, so it's a bit of a drive.) They said that our dealer here could fix it too, and that they'd send us the paint - should take about 7 days. STILL HAVE NO PAINT AND CAN'T GET ANYONE TO RESPOND! I can't say enough about my disappointment in Fannin Motors. We chose them over our dealership in town because they were willing to give us a much better price, and over the dealership in Charleson (who matched their price), because they offered the price first and it only seemed fair. I won't fall for that next time.

Again, hope you continue to have a better relationship than I have. So far it's already cost them - I have a neighbor who recently purchased a G550 SUV - he paid the full $104K for it here in town, but they treat him like a king. It was worth it to skip Fannin.

Good luck!

I bought mine from Smith but had some dealings with Astorg (sold car new) and both have been satisfactory. I know the main salesman at Fannin and he seems O.K. but other than buying an air filter I haven't dealt with them.
