Help Me Make A Choice Between Buying A 2014 GLK 350 Or Ml350 by Foolishbuhari: 9:23pm On Oct 29, 2019
Hello car people, please I'm in a dilemma choosing between buying a 2014 ML 350 or a GLK 350 of the same year both 4matic trims.

Note I'm a young man not married but I use style get small body.

Things I'm looking out for majorly are convenience, reliability and say class... Best put it this way, I need a ride I can roll in and stand out.

I initially favoured the GLK but because of the bad belle police when dey our roads, when go see young man dey drive motor body go dey pepper them, my friends are trying to make me see reason for an ML350 being that it's bigger and more intimidating while the GLK may be seen as a G boy's car angry

So I want to ask, if you were in my shoes, would you go for the GLK or rather go for the ML? What Are the pros and cons of both cars?They are of same engine size and specs though the GLK has more fuel economy than the ML. I've hardly heard about GLK350s having issues but I've heard one or two about ML350s but previous generations though

So which should get into the garage? I hope I did not Confuse you people sha Lol just help a brother choose right!


Thanks

Ok..first congrats say hustle don pay..to advice you won't be easy cos you didn't state what you do for a living, age bracket, your goals etc but since you stated you're young I will advice you put the money into a business that will yield you more money in future cos when wife and pikin enter the bill won't stop coming and lastly you can buy an average Toyota to avoid being called a yahoo boy, you fit even use am for Uber and personal use..congrats once more and God give you grace to utilise your funds properly. (By the way i like the Glk over Ml series cos is smarter for a young person)

Whether you're driving or not, NPF will harrass you. People that will stop gokada and oride users and still search them... Go for the GLK, I like it and it makes real sense

Ml still lead glk in so many ways especially when it come to acceptability by many...also it has better second hand value...infact Mercedes stopped its production sometime to enable them market other product ...cos everyone loves ml. My duty is to help you source for a quality one whenever you have made up your mind. Again glk is mostly seen as female cars

You pointed out that the main things you are looking for are convenience, reliability and class. With these, I will quickly recommend the ML as it looks more classy than the GLK. Both are very convenient cars to own but the ML obviously has more spacious interior.

On reliability, buying old used mercedes is tricky. When you buy one with issues, it costs a lot to repair and most times you may always have repeated issues. Both ML and GLK are not excluded from this.

On police harassment; I had same thought of buying something that looks more intimidating to avoid being harassed by police. This led me to buying a 2014 Mercedes GL 450. On my very first day driving the car, I was pulled over by SARS official and they asked me what kind of job a small boy like me does to afford such car. We went on this for hours before I was spared, after they received tons of calls from my lawyer and my people. Buying either the GLK or the ML can not change this.

Personally, I'd recommend buying a GLK because it is wayyyy more fuel efficient compared to the ML that gets between 17 to 24 mpg. The average 2015 GLK gets about 24 - 33 mpg and this is significant difference in fuel efficiency.

Pricewise, the GLK is also significantly cheaper as an average used clean title (never been in an accident) Mercedes 2012 GLK can go for as low as $8,000 on auction and the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 (clean title) can go for as low as $14,000. Both have low resale value in both U.S and in Nigeria.

I hope these help in your decision making.
