lets see who have the HIGHEST MILES..
to see what kind of issues he encountered, how reliable was the car thru these miles etc :D.


share the durability and reliability data of your CLA!.
we only hear when people having problems, i want to hear from people who had the car for 10k 20k 30k miles ++ and still going with no issues.... to give a sense of how reliable the car really is or is NOT.


i got 2550 miles on my cluster now... so far... its been great, no complaints.

Only 6k on mine after a year... no issues besides the turbo recall campaign that I need to have them inspect at my first Service A. No rattles, the transmission has adapted to my driving style and I have no issues with the sport suspension... coming from a WRX I'm accustomed to a harsher ride.

Besides the turbo campaign... I'm looking for some ideas to bitch at my dealer about on my upcoming visit.

I'm @ 21K miles. The only unresolved issue so far is the random PRE SAFE INOPERATIVE CEL (limp mode). 8 incidents so far and all MB did was scratch their head on me.

It's been a love-hate relationship of late. Nonetheless, she's sexy as hell.

Close to 4000 miles, no problems, slight rattle back seat area, lots of potholes here, I'm surprised no other rattles. It's like driving 2 different cars, if you want to tool around easy, use eco mode. If you want the car on steroids, sport mode. I flip-flop between both about 50% each depending on my mood........I feel like a kid again!!!

Mine only sees about 5-6K mi/yr, too. But I have a relatively short commute and it really only sees duty about 5 mos/yr since it's mostly stored in the garage from late April to late November. I use it in the Summer on occasions but it's more the exception than the rule.

28,000+. Got mine on the first day they were released in Sept.2013. Other than the check engine light coming on after 48hrs, some revving/shifting issues, nothing major. I did have a rattle in my sunroof that the dealer made worse by overtightenging/stripping bolts, and ended up replacing the sunroof and internal mechanisms, I cant complain about any major issues.

Bought October 2013. 8500-ish miles so far. Only issue I had was the collision prevention firing up randomly but it hasn't done it in months. Had the check engine light pop up at some point but it went away on its own. Extremely happy with my car.

When I traded my CLA250 for a GLA250 Edition 1 it had 24,000+ miles on the odometer. I had two problems. 1) a CEL for an O2 sensor which was fixed under warranty and 2) a rattle in the center console, which was also fixed under warranty. These problems had nothing to do with the trade, I had a lease that was going to cost me and arm and a leg two years down the road and I wanted some extra features, like bi-xenon/LED headlights, 4matic and leather interior. I looked at getting a 2015 CLA, but I didn't want to wait.
