Very reliable and easy to control

This car perfect for my current needs. I upgraded from a 2004 Mercedes-Benz. The features makes the ride a great experience. Highly recommend this vehicle.


Beautiful design and style

Great car all the way around. Seattle Mercedes Benz is great to deal with! I would, and have, recommended to several people, especially Canyon Beige exterior paint, additional cost for custom color,


Mercedes is still milking their past glory

Mercedes has a tag line in their ads - Best or Nothing. Their best is behind them so now they are nothing. I have driven 9 different makes of cars and this one rates at the bottom. My wife owns a KIA Nero and that has better safety features than the Mercedes which was known for its focus on safety. The interior features are very cumbersome to use. Worst thing about the car is the 4Matics engine, it is very sluggish and has no power. The dealership is also very arrogant and non responsive. When I complain about the shortcomings of the car's features they proudly claim - "it is designed that way" , in other words car is poorly designed, overpriced and deserves poor rating.


Love my GLA 250

I never thought of buying a Mercedes but this car is perfect for me. It’s beautiful and I love the way it handles on the road. It’s a fun car to drive. Plus it has all the bell and whistles. I wish I had gotten the moon roof but I will get use to being without it. It gets great mileage on highway. I looked at the BMW , Audi and Infinity small crossovers but this one is more classy and stylish my opinion.


Beautiful concept for a car

My Mercedes GLA is a beautiful car with all the bells and whistle’s for a great price. The time is right to buy, my trade-in was of good value, and there were just enough options out there for me to hunt and find the right used car.


Awesome car for the money

I bought this car a month ago. A CPO 2018 GLA 250 with 9600 miles on it. It was $10,000 less then the MSRP. So far this car is awesome. I love the interior sand I don't think it is a cheap as some reviewers have said. I also have no issue with the "classic" MB set up. Like any car it just takes some getting used to. Once you get the hang of it it becomes second nature. It handles great and I have not seen the turbo lag that many reviewers have seen. I would absolutely purchase this car again.


most reliable car I've ever owened

Love it, it is pretty, reliable, good gas mileage, price is right, can drive for 12 hours and feel comfortable, get many compliments on it, had basically the same car purchased new in 2014. Bought the same color in 2018 as I liked it so well.


Needed a second vehicle

I drive a MB roadster and needed a second vehicle to transport other family members. After researching and test driving various SUV brands, I decided on the MB GLA250. It’s not to big or to small for my needs. Love everything about this SUV and I got an awesome price. It even came with 4WD. Took a drive out of state and it was a very comfortably ride.


Sporty & Fun to Drive.

Sharp looking. Good drivers visibility. Very comfortable commuting in town or on long trips. Handles exceptionally well. Great acceleration, corners well and great on gas. An overall blast to drive. Good leg room front and back. Plenty room in the cargo area. Loved the back up camera. Easy to parallel park in tight places. This car meet or exceeded all our needs. Would highly recommend this car to a friend. Did regular service had zero issues with the car. Very dependable.


Fun to ride

It’s a good car and enjoy to drive but not spacious which a problem for a family trip , this car is just for personal use. But I love my MB
