Hi all. I am currently driving a 2013 Accord Coupe EX. Since day one there have been some things that I didn't like about this car such as the transmission judder, rear end, lack of pick up, and others. The CLA caught my eye and went to do a test drive over the weekend. I definitely like the car a lot and didn't see any red flags. I ended up putting a deposit on the below which has all the features i like. It should be here in two weeks.

- Cirrus White
- Black MB-Tex
- Aluminum trim
- P01 premium package
- Rear Deck Spoiler
- 320 Multimedia package
- 321 Sports Package
- Pano sunroof
- Bi-Xenon + LED lights

I tend to over analyze everything so I'm hoping I don't back out. The purpose of this car is tri-fold: drive to the train station (2 miles way form home), weekend pleasure trips, take it to car shows. Looking forward to your comments.

Welcome, neighbor! That's great that your car will arrive in 2 weeks. I ordered mine in May, and got it on 23Sept. I haven't seen any others on the road yet. I'm sure you will enjoy yours!

It's great!! Thanks for asking. :big smile: I'm still figuring out all of the features. I've got a couple minor complaints so far - for instance, the center console storage/arm rest. The latch to open it is kind of tucked way under the arm rest, so it's a serious wrist bender to pop it open. The basic door pins do look cheap (like someone else said).

Positives - I think it handles well. First gear seems a little slow, but once it hits second and beyond, it accelerates quickly - even in the Eco mode. Did I mention that it is beautiful? :wink: Overall, after 8 days, I'm still a happy owner!

Joe Paris: It's not a build. They already had this particular vehicle en route. I just lucked out it matched my wish list (except for the spoiler.)

Bubblewrap: I saw you other thread about thee winter tires. What is your final plan?

The spoiler actually looks great with the sport package. I'll post a photo soon. I originally was going to rip it off but it looks amazing.
