  • A sporty cross-over GLA250 - 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    I love this car! Its a small crossover but it's perfect enough for me and it doesn't feel like I'm in a big family SUV. I got the car with the sports package and it drives really really well with good handle on turns. The trunk, however, is small so if you have huge cargo at all times, this may not be the right car for you. The car is worth test driving and if you like it make sure that you do research before you lease. Don't forget to utilize for the resources they offer!

  • I hate fake leather - 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    for this amount of money, fake leather is annoying. Also, I know I live in TX but why is it so difficult to find a dark leather interior (I have dogs and teenagers...... light colored interiors are difficult to keep clean.... and light pleather doesn't clean well at all) so damned difficult to find.

  • GLA45 one of the fastest CUV ever, if not the fastest! - 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    0-60 in just 4.2 sec and runs the 1/4 in 12.8 at 109 ... and it is a 4 cylinder! Handles great, sounds even better with the race exhaust. I looked at the SQ5 and found the outdated shape not thrilling anymore ... Looked at the Porsche Macan but the price with options and the wait time seemed outrageous and then add the maintenance cost and the fact that it rides like a truck ... I looked at the new Lexus NX but the lack of power and handling seemed weak at best. Same thing with the Q3. The GLA 250 seemed to be the better deal ... until I tested the GLA45 ... the rest is history.

  • Steering Wheel Module - 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    When I first bought this car, I was in love with it! Within the first 2 months of driving it, an error popped up on my dash. The dealership told me that my steering wheel module was not working and that the part was on back order, coming from Europe (30 days). You can imagine my disappointment. If that part is on back order you think to yourself, this must happen a lot! I'm almost second guessing buying a Mercedes.

  • Wheel Spin, Torque Steer, and Bluetooth Disconnect - 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    I got this car from SIXT rental car in San Francisco and spent the week with it. I really wanted to like this car but every time you accelerate (even lightly) the wheels want to spin or you get torque steer around a turn. The engine is peppy but not so much that it should be spinning one of the front wheels. This car only had 5K miles on it so it was pretty new. The interior was nice, although the seats were pretty firm for a small SUV. The ride was firm but this doesn't other me because I like sporty cars. The other annoying thing about the car is that my bluetooth kept disconnecting randomly while on phone calls. I have an iPhone 6S Plus so there is no reason for this (and it does not happen in other cars). I think I would have given this car 4 stars if I had the all wheel drive version. I would not recommend the front wheel drive version.

  • Fun crossover/hatchback but not an SUV. - 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    I've had it for a few days, very good car, fun and easy to drive. I would not consider this an SUV since its sedan height. I am short and if you move the seat up you have very limited headroom. Also, wish the keyfob had a hatch close button on it and not just open. You can only close from hatch or in car. Other than that so far so good. Back seat roomy. Front seats comfortable. Small side mirrors wish they were alittle bigger. Very fun to drive. Good on gas.

  • This car is amazing - 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    Since taking delivery of my GLA in November 2014 I have grown to love this car. Although it my wife's car I can't get over how fun it is to drive. The smooth quite power is amazing the first time I really appreciate this car I was cruising on the FWY at 70 in 7th gear, I needed to accelerate quickly, pressed the gas pedal and the car just took off and never changed a gear. It's big enough for my golf clubs and luggage for 2 and that's all that matters to us. we did buy the GLA for cargo space just wanted a fun economical car for weekend getaways!

  • EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!!! - 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
    By -

    Mercedes offers several maintenance programs; a 6 year extended warranty, full scheduled maintenance for 5 years at a greatly reduced price, (if you sit down and calculate the actual cost of individual items and required fluid replacements and such it really adds up; this not only schedules everything to keep the vehicle in top shape but saves money over the long run), and my favorite the "ding & bump repair" program, (for only a few hundred dollars Mercedes Benz will repair all the unsightly little dings and bumps that happen in parking lots and elsewhere each time you bring your car in for service, how cool). We purchased our 2016 GLA250 4dr SUV from Park Place of Plano in North Texas. They were terrific. In fact we probably will purchase from them again shortly. I cannot say enough good things about our salesman, the managers, everyone involved.
