BMW owner, considering Mercedes
My wife and I are discussing our next vehicle purchase and Mercedes is at the top of the list. In June, we purchased a Smart for her as a second vehicle (our primary vehicle is a BMW 3-Series) as we wanted something relatively inexpensive with good fuel economy.
We have been very impressed with the service we received at Mercedes, both from the sales staff and the service department -- truly professional, courteous and friendly. (We had the opposite experience at BMW, even though we've purchased there before.) We have also been impressed by the build quality and styling of the 2013 C-Class, and my wife really loves the 2013 GLK350. (We're not familiar with previous Mercedes models.)
We're going to replace the 3-Series in the fall. Candidates are the 2013 C350 Coupe 4-MATIC, or the 2013 GLK350 4-MATIC. We do a lot of skiing in the winter and we do encounter snow on the highway and on the mountain road, so all-wheel drive is a must. However, we're not sure whether to go SUV or coupe.
At any rate, time to mine the forums for some information. Any advice on these models would be much appreciated.
