    Some people really hate our CLAs...

    I have gotten nothing but positive comments about my car from all kinds of people...until today. Today I was putting some groceries in my car and some guy started angrily walking towards me. At first, I thought I must have cut him off while leaving the store or something, but then he starts asking about my car. Within the first 30s of talking, he pretty much asked "why were you dumb enough to pay for this and not something that has more power"
    I responded by laughing and asking him why he cared - naturally he left.

    Has anyone ever come up to you and "insulted" your car or you for getting it? I was laughing after this encounter for a solid 15mins cause this guy genuinely hated CLAs with some passion. I think he drove off in a Focus ST, but lol - the whole incident had me in somewhat disbelief

    Am I the only one? Or is this a more common thing...

    sounds like jealousy or kicking themselves for what they have or just high on something ... but that is really weird?

    Sounds like someone with much too much free time. You should have suggested that he go into a department store and try on gloves...

    if you drive a beamer, merc or audi here in switzerland all the ppl gonna say „he lease the car 100% he could never pay for it“...
    Lease isn‘t a good thing in the eyes of the most ppl here... „oh he only works to pay the lease“ 😄... in my „hood“ i have haters too... had to show them the paperwork of my car because if i would lease, it would say „change of the holder is not allowed“

    We have a group in Canada called MBTrueNorth and even within all the mercedes members they look down on the A , B, CLA, & GLA lines. These are the people who drive C class and above who think they are far superior. Honestly I just ignore it and do my own thing, my money my choice. If you dont like or want to talk to me because I drive an entry level Merc then so be it.
