Plus if you're on a 2/3 year lease and want to lease again straight after, you're moving into a newer (higher value car) quicker than someone who is still leasing a 4/5 year deal. Most likely with fairly similar monthly payments.
Leasing is only really good on 2/3 year deals, when the car takes its biggest hit in depreciation. Still paying monthly for a car that's 4+ years old is silly
I saw this in the showroom and it didnt even have a centre arm rest at the back. The CLA was horrible, im roughly 5ft4" and when I tried to sit in the back of the CLA the roof bumped my head. Horrid cars, no wonder theyre the cheapest in the range, CLA might be phased out soon, GLA is just a raised up A class with less spec inside
Have you got one? How is it bog standard? I'm currently driving my dad's (leased) CLA180 shooting brake. It's lovely, superb to drive, feels nice and solid and very smooth. The 1.6 is no slouch either, and that's in an estate! Just wondering where you get your facts from that it's "a bog standard Merc" or is it just your opinion because it's not an AMG GTR.
Yes Of course it could. If one repeatedly does short-run journeys and/or switches off the engine at mid-active regeneration, then it's easy to block the DPF and worse still contaminate engine oil with extra diesel that was injected for regeneration in the first place to the sump. Not in the long-term in terms of ownership, but in the short-term, going to the garage to do a forced regeneration is a waste of your time, unless of course you enjoy wasting time. The 1.2 Puretech 130 is a great engine on this car.
