Interesting to hear of the Dec 2 update. I've probably put over 1000 miles since the second fix (first was caused by my request to install the update), and all seems well. Should I even bother with...

Indeed. However, the "4WD" logo on the Honda is ill-deserved. That's because they are all front-wheel-drive-based, using a variable electromechanically-locking rear differential that kicks in during...

All of them are like this. Only CDIs show the 4Matic emblem. The BlueTECs all just show the BLUETEC badge on the car. All GLK250 BTs are equipped with 4Matic. Because the diesel vehicles have lower...
