    Angry 2013 CLA220 cdi is BROKEN already. Engine broke down. with only 3000km mileage

    I hav here in Taiwan a CLA220 cdi brand new, 2013. And got the car around july. It has only 3000km mileage. It was only driven for 3000km. And now the engine is broken already. And the dealership says they have no warranty for this. I am seriously seeking for help. The Mercedes-Benz Taiwan says the engine couldn't be fixed. I need to get a brand new engine to replace it and it will cost nearly $46,000USD to get a new engine replaced.

    First of all, I would like to say I really like mercedes benz vehicles and I have persuaded my family members to purchase these Benz vehicles : E-class, C-class and the CLA class. I was very happy with benz until now. I have a brand new 2013 Mercedes Benz CLA 220 CDI diesel turbo here in Taiwan. The car was only driven for 3000km and the engine broke down already. The Taiwanese Mercedes Benz said there are no warranty for the car and the service is poor. I thought there is supposed to be a 3-year warranty for the engine, transmission and etc. The car was bought for less than 4 months and the engine broke down already. To conclude, I would like an answer for this problem and hopefully you can help me. And could you please look into this situation for me? Does anyone know what to do?


    very disappointed................

    I don't care where you are, a new car warranty takes care of just about anything unless it resulted from an accident or active vandalism. With 3000 km, I don't care if you kept driving the car with warning lights on for lack of coolant or lubricant, it is MB's burden to prove convincingly that you ignored, over a long period of time, to stop running the car when warned. Years ago, I had an idiot of a friend who drove his car under warranty for three days with low coolant warning and cracked the block. He laughed about it and the manufacturer still had to give him a new engine. There is some circumstances we are not aware of here, I am sure.

    Gotta be some facts missing. If local MB is not helping get a lawyer and contact MB Germany. Hell, go to the press and get on tv.

    In saying that I do remember reading about the Chinese Ferrari owner who couldn't get warranty repairs on his car and torched it in protest so maybe their are regional "issues" at play.

    There was also the guy with the M6 that kept breaking down and he and his friend took a sledgehammer out and began to fix the M6 himself. I believe it was an M6. Just going off of memory and 3 hours of sleep.

    We need more info.

    Was this a legitimate purchase in Taiwan - not a gray market purchase?

    Do Mercedes officially sell a diesel CLA in Taiwan?

    What is the Mercedes warrentee policy in Taiwan - policies vary from country to country?

    BTW - good luck

    That probably would result in an improvement to a BMW.

    The MB Taiwan says i have done mods to the dme but they cannot prove anything that its due to the reason of dme that caused the engine to fail. I have installed Racechip Pro2 piggyback. What other info do i need to share here? I just want to fix the car but the MB Taiwan is asking for way too much money. $46,600USD that's a lot more. And a brand new car in the states only worth $39,000USD
