OK, I'll bite. This has a full warranty, I won't be paying.
How long was that warranty?
Update: Local garage, which seem to know what they are doing have diagnosed- Wheel Bearing.
Thanks to (mostly) everyone for your input and thoughts.
That you had to take it somewhere else to get a proper diagnosis, instead of being sold a bill of goods and parts you didn't need shows some of the value of that full warranty... whether it pays for that repair, and whatever the cause of that problem was (only 1 worn, something else contributed) will tell more of the extent of it's actual value.
Well, Mercs were good enough for the Wermacht to use them as staff cars.... possibly the yanks get the hump 'cos they didn't steal them along with the V rockets and Werner Von Braun & co. - the Yank car industry is so cutting edge and has the best build quality doesn't it?
What's that? why are the Ford Mustangs so unreliable and have such poor fit & finish compared to the EuroShitbox Fords? -'cos they're built in the home of the automobile y'all! (or at least they were when I closed the door on working in Ford dealerships a couple of years ago).
Ooooh... get you!
All of ours were good enough for your lot to bimble along in and to beat theirs...
CLAs are from Budapest, and we build/built R-Class, M-Class, C-Class, GLE-Class, and GLS-Class in backwater Alabama.
Unreliable Mustangs? I guess that is why more than 10 million of them have been built for 52 continuous years, and about half of them are still on the road. Perhaps that is also why so many other manufactures try to copy them. You know, like the C-Class 2 door coupes which showed up 30 something years ago.
