“Do not buy Mercedes A160”

Written on: 16/03/2018

I bought the car in December 2016 in Singapore second hand, 2002 model. It's a beautiful car but has a very terrible reliability. It started with the fuel pump, wiper washer pump, electric mirror motors, interior mirror and the worst the car started to jerk on each and every stop and acceleration afterwards, gear box failed and also EPS/ABS pump spoiled. Mercedes Singapore asked for 17K to change the gear box and 7K to replace the EPS/ABS pump. Even thou giving the car to a non Mercedes… Read Full Review

“worst car ever had”

Written on: 06/04/2012

This car looks fine and have a lot of luggage space. after 2 years it started to have one problem after the other. No one likes to fix it and charge you a lot. Now i have a automatic gear box problem. How Mercedes build this car is beyond my imagination. I think this is the worst car ever came across… Read Full Review

I have had a 170CDI A Class from new in 2003 - a delightful car and never had any problems with it. Regularly serviced to makers recommendations.
In fact am looking to buy a second hand one to similar specification.

“Worst car I ever owned”

Written on: 27/06/2011

I bought a second hand because I thought it looked good and would fit in nicely in my garage. However, I have been in and out of the garage so often that ALL my friends, relatives and office colleagues have advised me to get rid of the car. Gear box problem, steering problem, acceleration problem, gross lack of power that 650c.c. cars are overtaking you, leaky sun-roof, ABS-ESP signals and the list goes on and on... Owner from Malaysia … Read Full Review

“This car seems to spends more time in the mechanics...”

Written on: 15/07/2009

This car seems to spends more time in the mechanics garage than in mine. Three and a half months in the garage and over $9500 spent on the auto transmission. Then $700 on rear suspension. $2000 on starter/ring gear. I won't bore you with the rest. Its a brilliant car when it is going but sadly thats too infrequently. This is not the sort of quality one expects from Mercedes-Benz, and I would not recommend an A160 to anyone… Read Full Review

“I did really like my Mercedes A Class until it started...”

Written on: 27/09/2008

I did really like my Mercedes A Class until it started to get continuous problems, it seems that i have had nothing but promlem after problem with it and the weird compact design of it makes it really expensive and hard to fix and nobody likes fixing them, I have only had it for a year and a half (second hand - bought it off my Dad) and it was fine for half a year but the last year it just keeps breaking so overall its dissappointing as i know it has been well looked after and driven but just… Read Full Review

“The Mercedes Benz A Class is such a disapointing car....”

Written on: 06/06/2008

The Mercedes Benz A Class is such a disapointing car. We always had Mercedes at home, so when I needed a small town car, Mercedes was the obvious choice. Technically it seems to be sub-standard quality. Air pump burned out and damaged contol unit, needed new air pump and ecu. The gearbox (automatic) was dodgy from day one, but Mercedes never found a fault. Gearbox had to be replaced. Still not working properly. Spent over 5000 euro in the last year. Never again!… Read Full Review
