Mercedes-Benz A-Class Change Vehicle

The all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class is the least expensive model in the German manufacturer's lineup. It packs Mercedes’ latest infotainment system and an impressive level of fit and finish, but it lacks the refined driving experience this luxury marque is typically known for. We fail to see the attraction of the A-Class, given its stiff ride, drivetrain foibles, confusing controls, and steep price.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
