      Hi, I posted earlier that my local Mercedes-Benz dealership called me this afternoon to advise they are back on Motability and will soon be going live. They gave me models/specs and pricing information. However, I can no longer see such. Anyone know why this has disappeared please? Thanks in advance.

        I would definitely clear any post-manufacture additions with Motability and Direct Line before you go ahead. You will need their permission to make changes which take it outside a factory spec. Adding packs is fine if during the build, but picking and choosing bits afterwards is probably going to be problematic, if the experiences of others on here are anything to go by.

          It’s still the dealership who would be adding those extras so I couldn’t see a big problem. The extras will be on the receipt, along with the AP so I don’t see much of a problem. The dealership I spoke to didn’t seem like they’d be a problem although he was chasing the price of a night pack up.

          As the CLA itself, I came away happy enough, but I drove a Q4 S-line not too long ago and I’m thinking O want another test drive in that before making a decision as the AP is around the same.

                  I picked up my Mercedes CLA on Thursday after just 2 weeks since placing the order. Everything went well and my dealer kept in contact all the way through the process by both phone and email – complete contrast compared to this and Volvo where there was 6 1/2 months of total silence.

                  Car is fantastic and zero regrets whatsoever. I’m finding the drivers seat more comfortable than I did the XC40’s seat so that’s the main thing for me. Boot is far bigger than the Volvo too which is a major bonus in getting my mobility scooter in and having enough room for shopping/suitcase etc. Tbh I never wanted an SUV type vehicle anyway and being a shorty I find it far easier getting in/out of the CLA, I had to bend my neck/head forward quite a bit to get in/out of the XC40 with the drivers seat set up for me.

                  Car drives like it’s on rails compared to my Volvo and straight off the bat I’m getting 40+ mpg overall which is impressive. I think the addition of the mild hybrid equipment on the new CLA’s is definitely making a difference to its fuel economy here. Performance is great and even though a 1.3 engine you now get 177 bhp so no issues at all on that front. 😁

                  After almost 7 months of waiting for a car and just getting constantly let down I’m glad I cancelled my XC40 order. Volvo have lost a long standing customer over all this and I doubt I will ever get another Volvo again, they shot themselves in the foot over this. Yes, the AP cost is way to much but having said that the current AP on the XC40 is only £500 less now so when you compare the prices in June they’re pretty similar.

                        Micky, it’s a fold up Travelscoot that looks like this assembled but once you take the seat off folds with 2 clicks to the size of a golf bag so just about fits lengthways unlike most cars I’ve tested.
