That it is a very nice driving safe luxury car.

I love almost everything, especially all of the technology, the comfort, the look, and of course the safe driving experience. The only thing I dislike is the high price should it need anything. However, I purchased the extended plan...again to much money for it but love the car!

Luxury car I have always wanted.

Car has a nice interior and racecar-like seats which are comfortable. Features include Apple carplay, backup camera display, heated seats, eco friendly engine gas saving feature. Car died once when it was newly purchased but the road assistance was fast and prompt.

- Amber R

Amazing car for an entry luxury auto.

The Mercedes-Benz cla 250 is very comfortable, fast and it looks great! I love having a large sunroof and android auto in my car. I do wish the engine was more efficient as premium gas is not cheap these days. However, I love the way I feel when I drove my car.
