My local dealer are being very cagey with regards to potential order dates, test drives and delivery dates. Anyone have anything semi concrete? I'm hoping for a September delivery but, judging by the other posts on this forum, am beginning to think that will be a tall ask?

First off, welcome to the site!

We have members here who have put down deposits and have been given dates ranging from June to January. That includes Canada, US and Malaysia and everything in between. I don't think anyone has any concrete dates just yet, only what dealers are speculating.

As the ordering process gets further along I think we'll have more consistent dates. Wish I could help more :(

Who in USA was able to put a deposit? I was at the dealer last Friday and nobody can take deposits yet...

I wonder about such dealers.
My local dealer knows me since the late 90s and apologized for not being able to accept my check.

Not sure what's happening with the CLA in the UK. Called my local dealer yesterday and asked when a CLA would be available for viewing. Was told it would be soon but would put me through to a sales rep who would discuss the situation further. Said Sales Rep was then "Too busy" to talk to me and would call me back in 5 to 10 minutes. Still waiting....... Don't they want to sell these little gems?

I have also just put my reservation down on an 45amg. My dealer is flying out to Spain next week Adam is hoping that after then more formal pricing etc should become available.

In the Norwegian market the CLA sales are off the roofs, people that places orders now will get their cars in Q1 2014. Mine had estimated delivery date in July but are pushed back to August. This in new info after my dealer got back from Spain.

Sigh... my local Merc dealership, one in Colchester, Essex, have been cagey with release dates, too.

They know very little about this model, convinced I was talking about the new A-Class, when I mentioned the CLA. Didn't exactly fill me with confidence.

I've taken the pre-release brochure away, but it doesn't contain pricing. Nor does it seem to contain the option for the beautiful neon-yellow stitching interior, I've seen available to German buyers.
Also, and I'm sure this has been mentioned many times before, when will we see the Configurator working on the UK site?! I can use Google translate to make the .DE, .FR and .BE sites readable... but model lines, engines and options/packs differ greatly.

I really do hope the CLA arrives soon. I need to replace my car and I'd rather not go Audi A5 sportback/A7 if I can avoid it. I've decided on a 5-door coupé.. just hope it's the CLA.

If you can download the mercedes app there's a load of info about the CLA there,think when I went into to enquire about the car a couple of months ago,I knew more about it than the dealers,thanks mostly to this forum
