Engine trouble

I am owning this car for 16 months, then all of a sudden the engine warning light got on and the car started wiggling. When I towed my car, the driver said he had towed many of this model with the same reason. I have not heard the reason yet from the dealer, but I lost my reliance to Mercedes. It was very scary experience and never happened with any other car I have driven for the last 35 years.

I love the crossover, very sexy

This car met all my expectations. I had a c300 and when my lease ended I got the 2019 GLA250. I love it. This brand was my dream brand since I can remember. It’s just a beautiful car

I love this car my GLA

I love this car. When I first saw them I wanted one, perfect size great looking. This car is the perfect small SUV. I can drop the back seats down and fit my 100 lb lab with no problem. Love that i can walk up to it and it open with my key in my purse. Very comfortable and wonderful to drive has great pickup and good mileage.

Fun to drive but small

Vehicle is more fun to drive than my previous C Class. I like the interior, options and 4 matic. Vehicle is small which is good and bad. A lot of fun to drive. Transmission seems a bit hesitant sometimes. Pity the dealership in Sugarland Tx was so bad.

designed for the driver takes eyes of the road

Example is 4 separate controls for the radio and comfort controls are at the lowest level of dash.Also hesitates and surges upon take off.Doors are not easy to close.
