My dealer just phoned and said that my CLA250 has been rejected because of a lack of compenents needed to build it to my specifications. I find it very hard to believe. I do have the Sport package, but I don't have leather, or the Panoramic roof. I'm not sure what they would be lacking? I just feel that something doesn't jive.

Dealer should have info on items not available

From the sport package I would think the body cladding should be the only thing in short supply

Hopefully the. 18" rims and the bigger brakes are readily available

I kind of have the feeling that my dealer never ordered it and gave the spot to someone else. Something just isn't adding up. They have 4 scheduled to come in before the end of the year, and I got one of them....Well, I guess not. Now they have caused me to panic and start looking at other brands again.

Where exactly are you ? Four CLA250 before the end of the year is insane. My two local dealerships are 10 miles apart and they each are getting at least 15 the first shipment and 30 the next month.
There are 320 +/- MB dealerships in the country. if they plan on selling 100000 CLA250 per year ( same # as the 3 series BMW,) each dealership should average 300 cars a year or 25 a month. Even at half of that, each dealership should get 10-12 CLA a month. To have 4 cars the rest of the year - Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec is ONE car a month. No way.

It's unthinkable that there is a lack of component when 90% of the orders are yet to be delivered. Whatever reason it shouldn't be lead to cancellation of order. Definitely a lie.

My dealer told me, that they planned to sell 20000 CLA250 in 2013 in the US, but because of short supply (I don't know what is short, but something is holding up the production) they reduced this figure to 10000.

The dealer you spoke to is not telling you facts. Mercedes will sell almost that many CLA45s, let alone CLA250s. 10000 cars is 2-3 cars a month per dealership in the US.
I have a StarNet screen shot from a dealer friend of mine. I can't show it as it has the name of the dealership on it but it has 15 CLA250s all completed or being completed ( last one has build date of August 1st decade ) all probably coming in September. There may indeed be supply issues. So I am not sure exactly how many CLA250s Mercedes is going to end up importing into the US from Hungary. I am almost certain it will be north of 10000. A lot north of 10000.

I just got a call back, and it is back in the system..again.
If it somehow disappears from the system again then demand them to go down with the price because of these stupid issues
