Mercedes-Benz A-Class A150 Classic SE 3d (2006/55) - Owner Review

the interior space is huge for such a compact car, plus there is plenty of room in the back for passengers. no need for a four door version unless desired.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
that i didnt follow the crowd and opt for a VW golf like everyone else. its refined but has a beast of an engine within.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
they all love it... most people comment on three things, how quick it is, how spacious its is and how comfortable it is.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would definately buy this car again as it has everything you need and more from a car. its high seated driving position is brilliant, you feel like a somewhat semi-jeep. haha

What are you likely to buy next?
the 2-litre turbo (193bhp) version. However, I wont be buying for some time as im so happy with what i have now!

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£6,225

When did you buy the car?
February 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
yes, as I looked at the same car else where and found that prices were a little cheaper but had much higher mileage, so i opted for giving a little more money to get a car in better condition, plus got a years warranty with it. sweet.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
wanted something fast, but didnt want to compromise on the comfort. The car ticked both boxes so I bought it.

What was the dealer like?
brought the price down immediately by 500, went back the next day and his superiors were not happy with the salesman offering to take that much off, so in the end i was told they made a mistake. and got 225 off with a years tax, MOT thrown in, minus the full tank though?!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
This car is brilliant on any roads, in town or on the motorway. it cruises smoothly at high speeds on the motorway making it "easy peasy" to overtake at any opportunity. Be careful though, you may not think your going over the speed limit but you are, its that effortless and smooth.

What's it like to park?
very easy to park, try for yourself, you'll see!

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
nothing has gone wrong so far, i have only had it a month but all seems well, and even if something is to go wrong, it is still under warranty which grants some peace of mind for the next year.

What's most practical about your car?
the interior space is huge for such a compact car, plus there is plenty of room in the back for passengers. no need for a four door version unless desired.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
climate control is the best. i never wear a jumper or jacket when in the car as the temperature can be so precise to what you want. its like summer in there!
