    All of these vehicles you listed are notorious for awful mpg relative to performance, how you don't know this...

    It's one of the biggest arguments against 1/4 ton trucks (like the Frontier and Tacoma) and most japanese SUVs/trucks, they get awful mpg relative to what you can do with them. I can assure you, my duramax's worst mpg unloaded is 15L/100km.
    Agreed. I am currently pulling an average of 13l/100km 75/25 hwy/city with my 3500HD. My wifes Q5 is only marginally better at 11L/100km.

    My mom has had a 2014 GLK 350 since brand new and I couldn't imagine a more mind numbing vehicle. To be honest, there are many others like that but it's definitely not something I would consider for myself. But I also think my wife's 2017 Q5 is boring as hell too, but GLK, I don't even like the looks. Anyway, all that is subjective so if you like it then that's all that matters. We haven't had any issues with ours at all other than the regular maintenance. That being said, she's put less than 30K km's on it in all this time.

    Bought the 225,000km one today for $9500, absolutely clean carproof and regular maintenance..I have to admit I have to get used to the boring drive but otherwise I like it so far... not sure how long I'll keep it though, maybe sell it before winter lol the manumatic function is not too bad... love the interior even though it's the old one.

    Good buy! Congrats

    The GLK is a great looking car with a lot of good qualities. They are a little soft for my taste, but as a DD they should be pretty good.

    Definitely head and shoulders over a used X1, haha

    Do you have the 2.0t or the larger engine in your Q5?

    I average around 9.7L/100 for city driving with ours, and I have a lead foot. We have the 2.0t, but I special ordered mine without the 104 kg glass roof. I have noticed mine feels more nimble and peppy than other Q5's without all that dead weight on the roof.

    What kind of vehicles can someone like you realistically fit in the back of anyways lol...I fucking hate full size SUVs and I'm definitely not a truck guy either, plus we don't have kids.
    My golf.

    Update, a week after buying I had a yellow engine light come on, pulled the code (very pleased it didn't need a special reader like VWs/Audis) and it was a common P0128, changed out the coolant thermostat and so far so good, also replaced a side marker bulb and knock on wood everything is perfect now..... hope it lasts a long time without headaches. Also filled up gas for the second time, 11.5L/100km mixture of highway and city (91 octane) using the comfort mode, not bad but would much rather use manumatic/sport mode. My stick shift Z gets roughly the same mileage but I tend to drive that a little more aggressively... either way the mileage is way better than vehicles I've had in the last. Love the look of GLKs more and more and the interior is pretty well built, very impressed with the quality, my first Benz. All in all, really glad I switched to it from a G37X coupe.
