hi bro, if not mistaken there are topic about A class (i read it long time ago), it seems to be a ok car, except for the transmission ecu, when problem arise it can be quite an expensive item fix.


but 2013 A-Class looks very nice

Hi,

Am assuming its the 2006 - 2009 model. I heard that this is a vastly improved design of the initial A class circa late '90's in terms of driving dynamics. Also I think a 7 speeder, right?

Prices should be a under RM100k now as well for a 5 -6 year old unit.

Yup, not much on the A in the local forum.

regards...

Re: Mercedes - Benz A170 - Need comments
Actually my wife bought the W169 after I bought my W203. It's pretty good to drive, the ride height is high as it is a mini mpv. The handling is good as well as ours is the avantgarde model. After the previous model flipped during a road test, Mercedes actually made the ESP standard and for safety reasons, it cannot be switched off.

It comes with a 7-speed cvt gearbox so the fuel consumption is good, but don't expect fast acceleration or high top speed. The ride is slightly stiff and the cvt is known to give problems. For a baby Merc, the storage space is pretty surprising as the rear seats fold down to give a very large storage area.

However, don't expect spares to be cheap as the w169 is not a popular model. So far, we've had the car for more than a year now, no issues with it so far. Hope this helps.

Do shop around for a good model, it should range between rm85k range. Don't get one with the panaromc roof as when it leaks, you will be left with a hefty bill. Also, get one imported new by Daimler Chrysler, not the grey imports.
