Totally agree, though Iím not sure how much of that is to blame on the transmission. My wife has a 2015 GLA and I hate driving it. Accelerating from a dead stop is like driving a manual with a bad clutch.

We wouldn't consider the petrol 4 cylinder in a car of this weight. They don't offer the diesels stateside. As far as low responses here, maybe these W213's are so reliable that very few have problems to report!

On a side note:
Just got the April Consumer Reports magazine and the 2019 S550 ranked #1 and is CR recommended in the Ultra luxury category. interesting.
