I seldom use mine for trips less than 20 miles. My personal belief is that there is more noise than substance to the problems.
I didn't have any problems either and I am sure that those like yourself with low mileage and good performance are bound to be defensive. But there are problems as I am sure you have read on the GLK forums.

This is one shops's post that crops up in several places: https://www.facebook.com/LinosAutoRepairsInc/posts/this-is-best-summary-of-bluetec-diesel-problems-we-found-so-farit-sums-everythin/785510888253257/

I love the older Mercedes diesels and always wanted to buy a new one. When I did, I hadn't realized just how much they had changed. Still drive my 85 300D regularly!
