Does that bug anyone?
Only if there's downstream QA/QC concerns; even then, that doesn't preclude the Fatherland from such shortcomings.

With all that said, it is an automobile designed in Germany by a German manufacturer so in-essence it is a German car (whatever all that may mean & infer).

I find that the company's core philosophy & standard-operating-procedure matters more'so than "where" & "what" all.

Now, if I was paying mondo-moolah for some super-duper luxo' saloon or exotic sports-car, obviously I would find it more "special" if it was actually assembled in the U.K., Germany, Italy, Japan, etc.

ps)
did you know that the average worker in Hungary makes under 1000 US $'s monthly?
funny how Merc pays out a few dollars and hour to employees there and charges everyone else arms and legs... for example, Canada will pay more for the CLA then those of us here is US and in Europe even more...
...anyways, no biggie, just my mountain of thoughts brewing... lol

It doesn't bother me. It's not like the factory has the freedom to assemble it any way they please. They have strict instructions from the German engineers where and when to place every single nut and bolt. They have product specifications.

Of course; we'll know whether this will be an issue after a year or so when people start posting about whatever issues that their CLA is giving them.....

My German-made B Class is a "special needs car", so Hungarian ones can't be worse, to be brutally honest.
