Noisy excessive road noise
GLA250 2016. It’s not a bad car but not at MBs expected quality or standard .
Mechanicals and cabin are fine road noise is not. Run flat tyres are very noisy on anything other than a very smooth road service . At 110km on the Calder freeway which is a course chip surface the sound system is drowned out by road noise . It ok at 60/80 kmh in the metro area but that’s not where I drive.
We test drove the car in the Metro area . Next time we’ll make sure it’s on our roads. Big mistake.
Purchased in August 2018 at Mercedes Berwick for $47,000.00.
It's pretty good. But....
Overall, this is a good car. But, for the money, it should be.
The engine is fabulous. Handling is excellent. Build quality good.
Crazy exhaust sounds good (at least, I like it).
The dual clutch gearbox is OK. I guess. Would have preferred a manual.
The electronics however are a bit flaky.
False positives are quite common. Flat tire alert. Go for a coffee alert. You are about to crash alert. And so on.
One wonders how all this electronic gear is going to work after a few years.
Servicing in not cheap (I knew that).
Warranty is short. 3 years. But do not forget your rights under Australian Consumer Law.
Purchased in April 2016 at Mercedes-Benz Dealers for $93,000.00.
Love this car!
Performance 0-100 4.3secs, handling-sports car, fits a family of four in relative comfort.
Legroom for my tall man is questionable but sports cars tend to compromise on that. Have the blackout kit on the AMG and it is a hot car. I love it and love driving it and my friends love driving it too!
