Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2011 GLK-Class: 74, high, small sample size
2010 GLK-Class: 42, moderate

Thank you, once again, everyone who has been helping. Next update in August.

We've updated our reliability stats for the GLK-Class to include owner experiences through June 30, 2014 (making them about 14 months ahead of some others).

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2011 GLK-Class: 79, high, small sample size
2010 GLK-Class: 36, low

Next updates in November and in February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

We've updated our reliability stats for the GLK-Class to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 GLK-Class: 0, low, very small sample size
2011 GLK-Class: 91, high, small sample size
2010 GLK-Class: 33, low, small sample size

Additional participants would be very helpful (I'd love to drop the "small sample size" notes).

Thanks, I do appreciate it. We've got a pretty good process in place. The challenge now is getting enough owners involved.

I'm not sure how the process works in that direction. If a car is reliable, though, people are more likely to love it. Or at least not hate it

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the GLK-Class now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 GLK-Class: 0, low, small sample size
2011 GLK-Class: 17, low, small sample size
2010 GLK-Class: 42, low, small sample size

Next updates in August and in November. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.

Thanks Michael. Looking to buy a used GLK so this data is key whether to buy a 2010 or 2011 model.

On a side note, the wife's current car, a Jetta, is on TrueDelta, but my CLK350 is not since there were too few subscribers.

Our reliability stats for the GLK-Class now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2014 GLK-Class: 8, low
2013 GLK-Class: 27, low
2011 GLK-Class: 9, low
2010 GLK-Class: 41, low

While the stats are consistent, the sample sizes were small for all years. Additional participants would be very helpful.

We've updated our reliability stats for the GLK to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources.

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2014 GLK: 26, low
2013 GLK: 20, low
2011 GLK: 10, low
2010 GLK: 13, low

Small sample sizes in all cases--we very much need more participants for these cars.

This is good to see. It also confirms what conclusions have been in Consumer Reports, JD Power as well as customer reviews in Kelley Blue Book.

We've updated our reliability stats for the GLK to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2014 GLK: 15, low, small sample size
2013 GLK: 32, moderate, small sample size
2011 GLK: 10, low, very small sample size
2010 GLK: 40, low, small sample size

We'll have further updates in November and next February. The more owners participate, the more comprehensive and precise these will be.
