What does this car say about you?
Stylish, practical, sporty.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
All are impressed with the looks both outside and in.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Hard question. Give me an A-class that works and doesn't fall apart and I would consider it. At the moment, certainly not. Mercedes have lost all credibility as a 'premium' car manufacture in my eyes. Good Customer service from my main dealer has been helpful, shame about the substandard product though.
