USA TODAY article on Mercedes CLA45 (4/25)

I know another Mercedes thread, just a recap from today's review.

Way overpriced at nearly $60K
BMW 335 X drive or Caddy ATS all wheel drive are better choices
Bigger than a 335 but much smaller inside
Great engine but why get a 4 when you can get a 6
No comfort access available which should be required at this price (I agree on that, wouldn't have a car without it)

Overall 2 out of 4 stars

Interesting article.

Side note: Friend of mine has a 2007 C class. I met him for lunch yesterday and he was showing me how the bottom of his door is rusting out. I did a quick google search and found that Mercedes only have a 4 year rust warranty, along with a bunch of posts on people that have are having similar issues. I've never seen any rust in any of the BMW's I've owned and was really surprised Mercedes have an issue.
