    Wtf?? Should I look forward to this??

    So I ordered my 2017 cla over a year ago. Now my car is stuck at the port and the dealership gave me a 2016 cla to drive around until mine clears customs. After 1 day of driving, the front sensor starts ringing while nothing is there and then the "hood open" warning starts buzzing when I start the car. The hood is not open, I checked! Then the backup camera didn't turn as I moved the wheel one time. IS THIS WHAT I HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO?? Does anyone else have these type problems?? I will be VERY upset if mine does these things once I receive it

    Yeah it must. And now when I press the brake hold while at a stop light it'll just shut off. That happened twice now! Has yours ever displayed this type of behavior?

    No, no, no and no. Take four deep breaths and wait for your new car.

    Yes I know the car "shuts off" during brake hold. But I mean it "turned off" meaning I had to manually restart the car. That's not normal. I took it to the service dept and he adjusted a cable so hopefully this will cease.

    Yes the "A" function was on but the car had to be restarted by me, not just by pushing gas pedal. I just hope this wonky electronics is not the norm for these cars...

    Sorry but you ordered your car over a year ago?? You mean you ordered the facelift for when it was released? Mighty long wait I must say

    I would say it's just an abused demo as stated above. Nothing to worry about

    Well thanks for the positive reinforcement. I hold out and hope for the best. I'll post pics once I'm all in with my order
