Used Mercedes-Benz GLK — history

Looking for the least problematic modification of this model was produced from 2008 to 2015. She has a few sores, which may hurt the pocket after the purchase.

Even in the informal service ordinary for a Mercedes costs a lot of money, so the market demand for aftermarket parts and consumables. Profile a local mechanic specializing in the maintenance of cars of specific brands, we have accumulated a decent experience in the use of substitutes and know what manufacturers produce high-quality and inexpensive products.Even in the informal service ordinary for a Mercedes costs a lot of money, so the market demand for aftermarket parts and consumables.

GLK is the first compact crossover under the brand name Mercedes-Benz. It was collected in Bremen, in seven years, producing about 540 thousand copies. The GLK is built on the basis of the versatile C‑class previous generation (S204). Hence, factory index — X204. In the GLK used basically the same components and assemblies as in the models W204/S204, in questions of reliability and operational nuances can safely rely on the experience gained in communicating with his grandparents.

In Russia officially delivered GLK exclusively in all-wheel drive and automatic transmission. He has gained popularity and has quite high liquidity on the secondary market.

  • On the first GLK model years possible problems with the power fuse located under the hood. It jammed the built-in relay load current shut-off. When the car goes into sleep mode, the relay stops unnecessary power consumers and does not resume the supply when the engine is started. The motor works, but the instrument panel is illuminated by the lamps malfunctions, and the car didn’t budge. The fuse box is sealed, its replacement will cost 15 000 rubles. For more fresh cars installed an upgraded unit, not suffering from this disease.
  • Previous GLK was marked by the melting of the headlights. The exact cause of this trouble is unknown. Service men, assume that because of bad contact at the lamp overall is a strong heating of the section, with the result that it melted the reflector. The manufacturer has corrected the error on update in 2012.
  • Radiators dirty very quickly, but it is important to monitor their condition. Worst of all transfers overheating automatic transmission. It is advisable to rinse the radiators after every 60 000 km.

Depending on the duration and conditions of operation, it informs the owner about the need to pass THAT generates code where the encrypted list of transactions. There are fixed events, such as changing the oil in the machine every 60 000 km.

The disadvantage of all electronic programs and service — poor adaptation to Russian conditions. Prompter propose to change the engine oil every 20 000-25 000 km, and ideally it should be done at least every 10,000 km, not to kill ahead of time and without the whimsical engines.

  • Closer to 100 000 km starting to leak oil seals the front of the gearbox. Update oil site is carried out together with the replacement cuff. Rear gearbox leak doesn’t suffer.
  • Front shock lasts an average of 100,000 km. makes sense simultaneously with their replacement upgrade bearings.
  • The problem with the steering on the GLK occur very rarely. This also applies to Reiki, and rods with tips.
  • Silent blocks trailing arms die after 60 000-80 000 km. Fortunately, they are available as separate parts.
  • Unlike the progenitor S204/W204, GLK the front suspension used wheel bearings that do not require adjustment. Before ignoring the need to conduct this operation on each THAT led to costly repairs.
  • Resource the silent blocks of the front support beams is 60 000-80 000 km. They can be replaced separately. In the rest of the rear suspension GLK reliable and not cause trouble.

After 100 000 km interior is starting to popracovat, there is a lot of “crickets”. For a representative of the premium segment that is unexpected.After 100 000 km interior is starting to popracovat, there is a lot of “crickets”. For a representative of the premium segment that is unexpected.

  • The machines of the first years of issue is a faulty electronic steering lock. At failure (the internal electrical defect) it is impossible to turn on the ignition, although the key turns freely in the lock. The lock is part of the immobilizer system, so it can only be ordered from an authorized dealer.
  • GLK to the pre-reform to around 100 000 km there is a significant crack on the left cushion of the driver’s seat cushion. When inspecting a used car it helps to identify the fact the twisting of the mileage. Visual quality of the material the upholstery is made of faux leather on the redesigned models has not become noticeably better, but no cracks.

2.1 diesel (170 and 204 HP) series OM651 2.1 Diesel (170 and 204 HP) series OM651

2.1 diesel (170 and 204 HP) series OM651 widely known commercial models of Mercedes-Benz and has proved popular. Two turbines are consistently coming into work, United in one body. The change in engine power is achieved in software.

OM651 rarely needs any serious repairs. Of the most common sores include only leak coolant pump occurring close to 100 000 km mileage.

The piezo injectors are very exacting to quality of fuel, and that is what determines their life. In our conditions they usually go no more than 100 000 km. When you wear one of the piezo injectors service men prefer to change their kit. It is noteworthy that for the GLK first release, the manufacturer offered repair kits for injectors.

Diesel 3.0 V6 (224 and 231 HP) family ОМ642Дизель 3.0 V6 (224 and 231 HP) family ОМ642

Diesel 3.0 V6 (224 and 231 HP) family ОМ642 has serious structural miscalculation. After about 70,000 miles due to oil starvation happen burrs on the crankshaft, sometimes he even bursts. One of the reasons — oil heat exchanger clogged, standing immediately after the pump. Assuming that the cause of the leak was the wear pads, service technicians are limited to their replacement — and soon the motor starts to knock, and then sent for major repairs.

From oil starvation suffers only the crankshaft and liners (bottom of engine) and other parts remain intact. Often, the repair wizard, not even change the piston rings, as their wear is minimal.

Another reason for oil starvation — flow fuel injectors. Diesel fuel from the cylinders gets into the crankcase, and goes fast deterioration of oil. It is therefore essential to monitor the condition of the fuel system and change the oil at least every 10,000 km.

The timing chain on diesel engines are massive and reliable. However, the repair of motor ОМ642 it is better to replace.

Petrol turbo 2.0 (184 and 211 HP) series M274 Petrol turbo 2.0 (184 and 211 HP) series M274

Petrol turbo 2.0 (184 and 211 HP) series M274 appeared when upgrading in 2012. Different power is obtained by changing the control program.

The block has sleeves, and the reliability of the cylinder group of claims does not arise. However, sometimes unexpected and ridiculous sore — after 40 000 km it is possible to shift the plates to the camshafts, which are the position sensors, and lights up the error code, informing about the misalignment of the phases. The problem is solved only replacement shaft Assembly plate of the sensor fixed hot fit without the dowels. Attempts to put it in the correct position and lock have only a temporary effect. Presumably, the turning of the plates occur in regimes of large heat loads.

In the mechanism timing chain installed new sample (hot, black), which practically does not wear out or grind the teeth on the sprockets of the shafts. Shifters usually die after 100,000 km, producing the characteristic crackle in first seconds after a cold start of the motor inside them is falling apart the stopper mechanism timing. Turbine petrol and diesel engines live a very long time and rarely fail.

Atmospheric petrol engines V6 family М272 — 3.0 (231 HP) and 3.5 (249 and 272 HP)Atmospheric gasoline engines V6 family М272 — 3.0 (231 HP) and 3.5 (249 and 272 HP)

Atmospheric petrol engines V6 family М272 — 3.0 (231 HP) and 3.5 (249 and 272 HP) — are considered to be problematic. Their characteristic sore — scored cylinders and pistons, for about 100 000 km. They arise from the fact that the active mass of the catalyst, showered and tightens it into the cylinders. When the critical wear of the cylinder group, the engine starts to knock. After repair or replacement of the motor it is necessary to replace the catalytic Converter.

For long lived M272 timing chain. Her life depends on riding style, but on average it is over-extended already after 60 000-70 000 km. If you long to postpone the replacement, stretched out chain will quickly kill the teeth of the sprockets to the camshafts, and they are made in the collection phase shifters — replacement of all damaged items will hit the pocket. Hanging belts and rollers go an average of 60 000 km. This applies to all motors. Surprisingly, petrol engines Mercedes-Benz die early sensors the mass air flow. Replace them with 80 000-100 000 km is common. Slightly prolong its life shortened replacement interval of the air filter of the engine.

Engine V6 3.5 series М276 (306 HP) engine V6 3.5 series М276 (306 HP)

Engine V6 3.5 series М276 (306 HP), the most reliable petrol engines in the GLK. Block with cast iron liners with the cylinder-piston group and rarely requires repair. As with other Mercedes engines, М276 3.5 long lived timing chain and shifters. The resource chain is affected by riding style, but on average it goes about 100 000 km. When it is replaced at the same time be upgrading the shifters to again in the near future do not open the actuator. C 2012 on this motor put an upgraded hot circuit is black, so the problem is its small resource left. But the coupling remains the same — unreliable.

The fuel injectors of all petrol engines are sensitive to fuel quality. It happens that they required resuscitation or replacement after 30 000 km And caring owners and they go for 200 000 km. As before, almost all petrol units, Mercedes-Benz eventually begins to flow the oil filter module. Sooner or later, his body warps and the gasket is weak. One way out: the replacement of the module Assembly.

The seven-speed automatic 7G-Tronic (722.9 MB)seven-speed automatic 7G-Tronic (722.9 MB)

The seven-speed automatic 7G-Tronic (722.9 MB) and the transfer gear form a single Assembly with a common sump. Alas, the pair scored a very unpleasant and expensive breakdowns.

In the transfer case suffers from the output axle on the front gear. Due to the design features one of the three bearings had to severely cut back in size, in the end he can not handle the load and it seems to approximately 100,000 km. the Trouble is that the bearing is not available as a separate original item. Not to change the machine and razdatki Assembly, informal services use parts substitutes. Life weak link extends regular oil change in a dual unit every 60 000 km. the Products of wear of the friction machine falling into the oil, considerably reduce the bearing life.

Approximately 100,000 km wear out and d-pad built into the above-mentioned axis – it appears a significant backlash. The manufacturer offers to replace the machine and rasgado in the collection — about 500 000 rubles! Separately to change the d-pad is structurally impossible, and the axis is not available as a separate part, even in gathering. Fortunately, there are always unofficial beushnye items in good condition.

Against this background, leak transfer case oil seal from the weak axis no longer seems to be a big problem. The original cuff available for order. The leak appears again after the notorious 100 000 km of run, but not related to the weak wear of the bearing axis.

Sores machine are well known from other Mercedes-Benz models. At any mileage can burn out the control Board in the block valves located in the sump. The experience of the service technicians, more often it occurs in winter. And in addition to the theories about the burn-in Board elements due to the deposition of metal dust there is a version explaining the problem of the temperature difference in the winter.

The machine is very sensitive to overheating and requires mandatory regular oil change every 60 000 km.

In addition, common cases of mechanical wear of the fixing surfaces of the solenoids in the hydraulic unit. This usually happens after 100,000 km Even specialized services prefer not to fix the hydraulic unit and replace. Repair attempts are often unsuccessful.

THE WORD OF THE SELLER

Alexander Bulatov, sales Manager pre-owned of the company “At Service +”Alexander Bulatov, sales Manager pre-owned of the company “At Service +”

Mercedes-Benz GLK has a good liquidity on the secondary market, but is noticeably inferior on the set of consumer qualities direct competitor is the BMW X3. The risk of running into fraudulent ad is small, but the hijackers look at the car. This is primarily due to the high cost of spare parts.

AMG package enhances the interest to every Mercedes car find a buyer much faster. And you can safely inflate the price 30 000 — 50 000 rubles.

The greatest success the version with four-cylinder 2.1 diesel engine. The demand for cars with top engines is very small. Some buyers prefer the petrol engine 3.0. Usually, this is due to prejudices against powerful diesels and preferences of the target audience. Usually GLK buy as a second car in the family, so the power available version sidestep.

I recommend the GLK with a diesel engine 2.1. These machines have decent dynamics combined with low fuel consumption and maximum liquidity and relatively high reliability compared with other modifications GLK. Plus humane transport tax rate.

Suggest when choosing a machine relating to such segment, seek help from a professional picker. The cost of their services is small and tips experts will save from buying a vehicle with serious problems, elimination of which will cost a pretty penny.

SUMMARY

Mercedes-Benz GLK has been serious and costly faults. And it’s mostly annoying and sometimes ridiculous mistakes with the most critical components — engines and transmissions. However, among all modifications there are a couple of relatively friendly options. If you go with the head to maintain and operate, not to ignore the fault indication and not to postpone repairs, car maintenance is not too burdensome when compared to its closest competitors.
