Dear Mr. Fader,
It is with pleasure that I write to you about my always outstanding experience at the Herb Gordon Mercedes-Benz dealership. I have been a loyal customer of the dealership since 1980 and, once again, I am reminded why.
Recently, my car was in for service, requiring the involvement of my insurance company. Under the combined guidance of Gary Dove and Tony Wasfi, what felt initially like a quagmire, became easily resolved. Gary is a master of immediately assessing the issues, suggesting the best solutions, and offering reassuring and competent guidance throughout the process. I also know that my car is in the best, professional hands under Gary’s and Tony’s direction. Tony not only diligently managed the repair process; he interceded on my behalf with my insurance company in an accommodating and professional manner. As if this were not enough, the superb assistance I receive from both Gary and Tony is always delivered with the utmost respect and courtesy.
It is often said that the best form of advertising is “word-of-mouth” and the best business is a result of referrals. I never hesitate to relate these extraordinary and pleasant interactions to my friends and colleagues and refer them to Herb Gordon Mercedes-Benz.
Although I suspect that this is not news to you, my experiences over the years are proof positive that Mr. Dove, Mr. Wasfi and the entire Herb Gordon Mercedes-Benz team of professionals are irreplaceable assets to “Atlantic Automotive.”
Very truly yours,
Herb Gordon Mercedes-Benz 877.868.8484

From a long line of award-winners comes the new 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK, a compact luxury SUV that’s small on footprint and big on attitude. Starting at just $33,900* this SUV hangs with others twice its size. Standard features include: Dual zone climate control, 19 inch aluminum wheels with all weather tires, multifunction steering wheel with display, chrome accents, a 7 speed automatic transmission, 6-air bag system, Bluetooth, panorama sunroof, center controller with 5 inch display, and much more.
Don’t be fooled by its affordable price, the new GLK still offers everything expected of a Mercedes-Benz. Even with the first push of the gas you will accelerate to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and still get 22 miles per gallon on the highway. Finally there is a vehicle that can tow 3500 lbs, has a turning radius of 37.7 feet, can accelerate on a dime and looks and feels expensive without burning a hole in your pocket.
See for yourself. Visit Mercedes-Benz of Annapolis on March 28th. Take a test drive or just enjoy the food, company of others, and giveaways. Make sure to RSVP by March 26th to be eligible to attend this event. Again, call 1.866.318.4830.

Just when you thought that Mercedes-Benz has every luxury SUV angle covered, up pops another one, the 2010 GLK350 4MATIC.
Sliding in under the M-Class, the compact GLKClass is 10-inches shorter, with 6-inches less wheelbase. It sports younger, more angular styling that’s closer to the classic G-Class than the current aerodynamic M and GL.
Designed to be the most agile and economical member of the Mercedes-Benz gas SUV lineup, the GLK350 is sufficiently powered by the same 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 that powers the ML350 and shifts through a seven-speed automatic transmission. But with nearly 700 pounds less bulk, the GLK delivers better government fuel economy ratings of 16 city/22 highway.
The 2010 GLK drives all four wheels through a proven 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. A rear drive version is also in the cards. The GLK shares much of its mechanicals with the C-Class including a light weight strut front and rear multi-link suspension. Another new feature is the Agility Control Damping system, which stifles road noise and tire vibration, while allowing for a stiffer shock.
Inside, the GLK offers the same angular look as the outside, with impressive room for both five passengers and their cargo. As expected, the GLK cabin is very well equipped, with everything from dual-zone climate controls to Bluetooth to panoramic sunroof.

We caught the next E-class out for a drive in California.
We caught this lightly masked 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-class driving around not-so-sunny southern California. Even in the smoggy light, we can see most of the car’s revised shape.
No, Mercedes isn’t planning a shooting brake anytime soon. This concept hints at the 2010 E-class coupe and sedan.
Mercedes-Benz will show its ConceptFASCINATION at the 2008 Paris Motor Show next month, further watering down the definition of a coupé and more importantly, previewing key elements of the next E-Class.
The 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK350 is a meatier, faster, better-looking, more satisfying car than it used to be.
To me, the SLK’s recent revisions have helped it become less of a “hairdresser’s car,” as it’s sometimes derogatively called in the UK. Sure, the subtle tweaks to the interior and exterior styling play a part in this, but a bigger improvement lies in Mercedes-Benz‘s new “direct-steer” rack, which greatly enhances the sportiness of the SLK. Michigan roads aren’t great for sampling this new system, but the improved steering was plainly clear when I drove this car in the mountains near Nice, France, in spring 2008, when M-B launched the ’09 SLK family. The upgraded 3.5-liter V-6 (with 32 more hp and 7 more lb-ft of torque) doesn’t hurt either, and it sounds pleasantly muscular. Overall, Benz’s most compact roadster is attractive, nimble, and easy to drive. Still, if I were going to spend $50K on a roadster ($60K as tested in this case), I’d almost certainly go straight for a Porsche Boxster, which is more fun to drive, more masculine, better-balanced, and also offers a slick stick-shift gearbox.
The next Mercedes-Benz four-door-coupe gets an evolved look and more equipment.
Five years ago, the term four-door coupe was an oxymoron. But in 2004, Mercedes-Benz used it to describe the new CLS, and logic was trampled by star-struck customers waving their checkbooks. Rival manufacturers were equally enthralled. Witness the Jaguar XF and the Volkswagen Passat CC. In 2010, BMW will launch a thematically similar four-door, and Audi will chime in with the A7. Mercedes, meanwhile, is readying the second-generation CLS. A careful evolution of the original design, the new low-roof four-seater was masterminded by Gorden Wagener, who was recently appointed head of the design department, replacing Peter Pfeiffer. Sales of the first CLS have run about 40 percent ahead of expectations, and that good news is tempered only slightly by the fact that many of those sales were stolen from the E-class, which looks rather bland in comparison.
Like all the other 6.2-liter AMG cars, the CLS snorts and snarls when you stand on it, and it crackles and pops on the overrun like an old-school hot rod.
The CLS is a much better match for the 6.2-liter AMG V-8 than the S-class. I was expecting the CLS to feel a bit awkward with this engine since it seems to be nearly as large as an S-class, but I was pleasantly surprised. The CLS is even better suited to this particular engine than the CL coupe, which was another surprise. The tip in is a little funky, but once you’re on the road this V-8 sounds great and packs plenty of punch.
Mercedes claims its hybrid luxury sedan will be the most efficient.
The Mercedes-Benz S400 BlueHybrid will launch in the United States one year from now, marking the German automaker’s first production foray into hybrid technology.
