That causes trouble: Wishbones that wear out quickly and squeak first, then rumble. The AUTO BILD suggestion box reports frequent failures of touchpads in the Comand system and the calibration-sensitive assistance systems. Artico artificial leather tends to crack.

the GLC only fails once in all disciplines: the axle suspensions of the five-year-olds exceed the average of the comparison vehicles by three times. But that’s it, otherwise you can GLC 0.0 are at fault. the GLK is similarly robust, with him the springs and dampers of the seven-year-olds weaken too often.

At the GLK The function of the parking brake is criticized above average, which is due to its infrequent use. Not so GLC: Here the electric handbrake applies automatically. It falls with age GLK also due to increased defects in the brake lines.
