Dan Moreau is a gem. He's been our service agent for seven or eight years and is simply terrific.
50,000 Miles Review
June 28, 2018
After driving this car for 50,000 miles, I certainty would not recommend it to anyone. The ride is extremely stiff, handing is terrible, and after driving the car for 1-2 years, engine becomes so loud even if you do all the services on time. Compared to similar cars from brands like Lexus, Audi or even Toyota and Chevrolet, this car feels very heavy and it seems like it takes so much power just to get the car moving. The interior and exterior styling is only positive thing about this car. Performance and comfort is absolutely terrible and overall I would not recommend this car.
Vroom rushed me thru the process of purchasing a vehicle from them. Had strict requirements of receiving payment within 48 hours. I was rushing my loan department to get my paperwork completed ahead of other customers in fear of losing the vehicle I wanted to another buyer. The loan paperwork and a check had to be overnighted to Vroom to meet their qualifications. THEN CAME TIME FOR THEM TO GET THE THINGS I NEEDED TO ME!!! I HAD TO REPEATEDLY ASK ABOUT THE ARRIVAL OF MY TRADE IN TO THEIR FACILITY (which they kept telling me for 15 days that it hadn???t reached their facility??!! Yeah right)!! THEY DRUG THEIR FEET ON SENDING THE PAYOFF OF MY TRADE IN SO LONG THAT THE 15 Day PAYOFF THEY WERE QUOTED EXPIRED AND I HAD TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT!! I WAITED 26 DAYS TO RECEIVE TITLE PAPERWORK!! BUT THE PAPERWORK THEY NEEDED FROM ME HAD TO BE SENT WITHIN 2 BUSINESS DAYS!! YOU SHOULD GIVE AS GOOD AS YOU EXPECT, VROOM!! I HAD TO KEEP REQUESTING A REFUND OF THE $500 THEY CHARGED TO MY CREDIT CARD TO HOLD THE VEHICLE FOR A WEEK!!! LASTLY, the 2nd person I dealt with following the sales person was RUDE.
I really regret not going to Action Automotive sooner! Every other dealer I visited used high-pressure/high-stress sales tactics, had zero respect for my very busy work schedule, and not one of them could even get my name right!
Ben had everything ready to go, and got to work right away on beating my bank's finance rate. I was in and out quickly, with no pressure, no stress, and a great rate on my loan. Would DEFINITELY recommend!!!
We searched the National Capital Region for the right vehicle at almost every Mercedes dealership in the area. This dealership not only found us what we were looking for but also gave great customer service, made sure every feature we wanted was included and made the deal exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely be bringing our business back. A high class experience, but down to earth. We are so happy about our purchase.
Lots of Power for a 4 Cyliner

The GLA 45 AMG was my choice in my most recent car purchase because I needed a little more capacity, but I didn't want to go full in for an SUV. I also wanted something with get up and go, which the AMG version of this vehicle provided with 355 horsepower generated from the 4 cylinder engine. The car has continued to fulfill my needs. On the up side, the styling is good, the acceleration is outstanding, and it offers a good sound from the exhaust. On the down side, the quality of the components remind you that this is from the very low end of the luxury car maker. But the one truly serious fail is with the tires. The car does not come with a spare tire or jack. It is equipped with an air pump and a can of flat fixing solution. I've had two problem tires so far. The first time I was on the side of a freeway at rush hour and I was not going to try to dig out the pump and solution with cars whizzing by inches away. The second time I was able to get to the dealership. But in each case there is only one tire made to fit the car and it is not in stock anywhere. I was left without transportation for three days awaiting a tire the first time and I live in constant fear that I will encounter tire trouble while on a trip out of town leaving me stranded awaiting a tire for days.
We had a great time. Sevice was great by all the staff. Stop by just to see the lot. And we ended up with a great car at a good price. Thank you very much.
50k miles and still a blast - GLA45 AMG

Bought the 2015 GLA45 AMG Edition 1 on a whim, it looks like an old Group B Rally Car and performs like one as well. Great handling with curb-clearing suspension height.The hatchback means it works well for getting groceries and the 2.0 liter engine means it gets much better gas mileage than other cars nearing 400 horsepower. The ride is much stiffer than other Mercedes. It has lots of great luxury features, the front and rear parking sensors are excellent, and they turn on automatically at low speeds. Basically, this is a luxury Subaru STI with more horsepower.
Got caught in the holidays trying to buy a car I found online @ elite auto brokers. I spent a week out of town but was told to rest asure the car I wanted would be placed on hold inspite of other coustomer being interested in the same vehicles. Needless To say after spending another week getting my paper work in order they remained true to there word and assisted me in all my needs. They also have some of the hottest cars at very competitive rates. I generally trade up every few years and they will always be my first start . Thanks Elite Auto Brokers
Was having constant headliner rattling noise either from headliner or panoramic roof. First took vehicle to Tyson's Corner Mercedes-Benz, Service Writer assistant manager Told me the noise was coming from the headliner and needed to be replaced which requires removing the front windshield which mostly break on the removal process and replaced with a non Mercedes-Benz original acoustic windshield. I decided I needed a second opinion service appointment at Mercedes-Benz of Chantilly. With a good news phone call message from service advisor: Cristian Grijalva that the headliner was not the issue it was the panoramic roof assembly parts that needed to to lubed. The headliner/roof noise is now gone. "Thank you MB Chantilly"
Great but small inside
by EyeballVentfan from Honolulu,Hawaii

This car has a stout engine and transmission, distinctive industrial interior that is beautiful. Great gas mileage considering power. Minor negatives are mirrors that don't fold,protruding headrest, must adjust front seat to fold down rear seat. Intrinsic negatives are poor visibility and small interior/poor space utilization.
i WAS VERY PLEASED WITH MS. VICKIE OUR SALES PERSON THIS WAS DONE VERY QUICKLY AND PROFESSIONALY, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH THEM AGAIN
THANKS FOR THE GREAT EXPERINCE.
BRAND NEW PURCHASE
March 14, 2018
I just purchased this car a week ago. At this point, it looks great and drives well. If it's anything like my old C class, I'll enjoy if for many years to come. I had very little maintenance issues with my old one. Let the good times roll!!
