    Question Prospective buyer

    Hey guys, new to this forum but not to forums. I did a search and didn't see any pre-purchase threads that were too active so here goes.

    Anything common to look for in a 2015 CLA with about 61k miles on it? It's the RWD, and it's listed for $17k, which seems like a decent deal from shopping around.

    Don't want buyers remorse, so i'm trying to do as much research as possible. Coming from a Subaru Legacy GT.

    thanks in advance

    I've never heard of a CLA that is rear wheel drive. I've had no problems with my 2014 250. I have just under 40,000 miles.
    You could have a mechanic check it out before purchase.

    To my mind, that is a huge whack of miles on the vehicle, 61,000 miles, thats about 98,000 kms over about 3 1/2 years? Seems like higher than average mileage to me. As Rapidfirerob said, I'd be getting an independant mechanic to give it a good check over before buying.
