2001 Mercedes-Benz A-Class Avantgarde 1.6 ACS from UK and Ireland
Nice car, but overpriced and costly to service /maintain
Anti roll bars needed replacement twice due to wear.
Seat adjustment knob broke.
Rear shelf support bracket broke.
A very nice concept, but some design weaknesses that should have been put right by Mercedes.
Mercedes servicing costs are way too high.
I enjoyed my A class, but not the worry of something serious going wrong. The ACS system worked fine, but I began to ask myself what might be the cost if it were to fail?
The alarm had a habit of going off for reasons such as hailstones or a stiff breeze!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
