There are quite a number of YouTube reviews of the new CLA180/200. I am looking/comparing the prices and features from these PIs. Haven't made a decision yet.

 

  1. Vincar
  2. F1 Auto
  3. Cars & Coffee
  4. TTS Eurocars
  5. Edmund Motors

 

 

I'm comparing between 180 & 200, and I really can't see any difference between them other than a mere 30bhp. My current family car is a Kia Sorento (2015) 2,400cc car, so just wondering if a 1,300cc engine with turbo would feel vastly different. A lower power would be for sure, but would the car struggle at low speed like the old NA 1,600cc engine?

I can't say specifically for the Renault turbo, but the older M274 1.6 turbo had plenty of go, if you come from a NA car.

Can't complain..

If there is a legal tussle, the company would have suffer the intangible damage, unless they can prove beyond doubts they are not responsible.

Agree. Look at the numbers of new VWs on the road nowadays ever since the infamous 7DSG saga exploded. They have not admitted it is a faulty design. I have not stepped into VW Singapore ever since. It is abt trust.

AD may win the legal case but loses more customers from such saga if the car is truly a lemon. It is scary for a person to work hard for his dream car and loses $200k to a lemon. Not everyone can afford a lawyer for a long drawn case.

the problem is that they can't identify the cause even after almost 1 month and yet still insisted that I trade in my car at depreciated value for a new car at list price (ie even higher selling price than a walk in customer who will enjoy overtrade, whatever discount, etc). I rejected this 'goodwill' offer and told them I will go to CASE and engage a lawyer. Now they request for me to wait for them till this Thur for a revise offer. Honestly, am not very hopeful for a satisfactory resolution, as they had told me they will review the proposal twice before, but each time, come back and tell me after careful calculations, they cannot accede to my request to revise it because it will cost C&C
aye... so need to push harder too. then again, mine is still worst, as the car can't even move. I couldn't even open the door when the battery died
the lawyer is A&G. probably won't take my case against C&C, which is much more important client to them than me. Unlike the Sultan, probably has existing business relationship. I have found a smaller law firm, so will still sue then if I don't get satisfactory resolution

 

Hi Lipingasia

 

any updates ?

Interesting that they did not admit to a faulty design here as this was a recall in China.

Dear all,  [wave]

 

Does anyone know whether we need to wait at least 6 months from loan commencement before we can proceed with the early redemption of the MBFS loan ?

 

That is what I heard from the C&C sales people, but MBFS told me otherwise. According to MBFS, there r some "admin" fees for early redemption based on outstanding loan amt(though overall still save on interest) but no extra penalty just because it is less than 6 months. Dunno who's right ? :a-confused:

 

Many thanks in advance & great weekend ! [:)]

My SE told me I can only redeem the loan after 1st year to avoid penalty .
Cheers!

Ask your SE for a copy of excel file calculating the redemption amount & interest you will pay.

I used DBS
Redemption allowed after six months and it was a good balance between penalty and savings
You need to calculate that
Remember the 70 rule..

Redeem after 1 year, you get to get to keep all the benefits and freebies. In my case, the freebies I got worth more than the 1 year interest I paid on minimum loan sum.
