I love my A class! (the only thing I'd want in the next one, is the leather option for the seats).
Driving height, and being able to see more around you

Good points for this A170 cdi is Economy to run
Bad points is The Engine maintenance is very expensive due to bad design.
I had all injectors removed and replaced them; it took 8 hours to replace them and it cost me £1399 and this job can only be done at Mercedes benz centre. After 1 year they need replacing again. (read more)
