Whoa, I can't believe he was bold enough to walk up to you, what we drive is our business, cars are personal and preferential, just like a house is. No one said anything to me personally, if they did I'd set them straight. I see a lot of hate on other threads, but it doesn't bother me. I've seen this over the years, it seems like the 'entry' level benz isn't a 'true' Mercedes in some people eyes. I've seen people criticize the C-Class, then the GLA/CLA- class, I'm assuming the new A-class is next. I'll tell you this, if the CLA isnt a true Mercedes, then tell that to the service dept and my insurance company lol They criticize how much it cost, saying you could've gotten a new Camry or Accord....well I can easily say that for a new accord/camry you can get a fully loaded kia lol Their logic is so flawed with that argument. The CLA did/does it job, which is to attract the younger demographic to the Mercedes brand, and guess what i'm in my upper 30's so I guess it worked...I dont pretend that this car is any more or less than what it is!!!.....ok my rant is done Be well my CLA family!!!
