Written on: 23/08/2010

The smell of petrol was strong for a while with no obvious sign of a leak. Eventually after seeing other forums say it is a faulty clip where the fule pipe connects in the engine bay i asked a garage to specifically look at that area. The watched - and watched - and watched - and YES! saw an intermittent spray of fuel leaking. it was small and intermittent so was evapourating quickly - hence i had not seen the leak before. Thank Heaven it is an easy fix to replace a clip. months of… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/07/2008

The Mercedes A Class is a great little car, as the review say built like a tank and we love being so high up. Great for London. Handling isn't great but then it's in the city most of the time so is great for parking and normal city roads. Great car. Buy one second hand and you'll love it… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/04/2008 by hannahp87 (1 review written)

This is my first car! I have driven almost every car on that has entered the market since 2004 and every time I come back to what I have....there are features that I prefer over the new A170(2007)....I far prefer the drive on the older A-Class and the go anywhere, do almost anything capability! Although the car does seem to not enjoy steep inclines(60degrees) the suspension is a little wobbly over speed bumps.... In all honesty, I love my car-still going strong after 130 000km...Definitely wont… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2005 by StormDK (4 reviews written)

I have a Mercedes Benz A Class 160 Avantgarde and I really like, but one has to know that the quality is not up to par. Mercedes Benz definitely used inferior materials for the trim and other parts. However, that said I really like the car. It is very versatile and I can easily nip in town. It also has nice safety features… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2005 by lofty1 (4 reviews written)

The Mercedes Benz A Class A160 is a nice car. It is comfortable on long runs, and is high off the ground, giving good all round vision. It is economical at 45+ on long runs, and it has a very useful seating arrangement for the odd load, soft goods, or when moving house. It is very easy to keep clean due to the smooth body-lines. There are no hubcaps to lose with the standard alloy wheels.

I would recommend it to my friends… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2004 by bigadz7 (11 reviews written)

I've driven quite a few of these Mercedes Benz A Class A160 family cars over the last few years for weeks at a time (as hirecars) and we bought one 3 months ago, so my wife and I obviously like them. What I can say though is definetely go for the highest specification you can afford, but stick with the A160 as it has a gutsy, economical engine and is easiest to re-sell. The Avantgarde model is the one to go for as it has leather, Aircon, cruise-control (on the later models) nice alloy wheels… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2004

I had the same problem on the rugged terrain of Manchester. I paid a fortune to have it fixed only to now find that the automatic transmission has failed after 42,000 miles. Cost to fix? The price of a new car. Be very afraid
