so, uh, how does she like it?

No idea. I, personally, think it was a stupid decision to get this. It's more cramped than her xB, it gets half the fuel economy, will be nowhere NEAR as reliable, and the servicing costs will easily be 3x-5x as expensive.

Yeah, her husband makes really good money, but getting this when she probably would have been just as happy with a Kia Soul or Ford Flex... ugh. But she had her heart set on it, and my brother-in-law figured it'd make her happy.

#2, Wow. Big leap. Only benefit I see is a quieter cabin and smoother drive. Other than that, you're right. Lotta downside to this. Still, I can understand him wanting to not give his wife a kia soul if he can afford a GLK.

#3, I don't like this. I could've got one of these, too, but..

In my $18k budget, I looked at:
Buick Regal CX/CXL
Ford Focus SE/SE/SEL (couldn't find a color I liked that wasn't either a rebuilt wreck or had shady history)
Ford C-Max (I got lucky, because it was one of four in the area)
Mazda 3
Mazda 6
Volkswagen Tiguan (yeah, DSG, no thanks)

Dog couldn't fit in the sedans, and hated getting into the Focus :( so..
C-Max it was :)

#4, Nothing wrong w/ picking a c-max.

I like it so far.

Back to the "truck" at hand. I don't see the point of these. They're (as DiRF said) extremely cramped, get awful mileage (even for their size), not all that fast, and have less room than even a C-class.
