This car has been in for service every 2 months. Barely has 20k miles and has been in for tire sensor twice. Sun roof malfunction twice. Recalls. Even needed new cylinder for the engine. Won't by Mercedes ever again!!

I have a 2019 A220 Sedan, FWD. Have had it over 8 months now. Have 9K miles now. I am a car guy so really care about all elements of the driving experience (My last car was a 2017 Audi A3 FWD). The design of the A220 is great. I love the styling inside and out. Great tech and tons of comfort and safety options that I really like. I think the sound system is quite good (better than A3). The screens and interfaces are all great. I have the light beige interior and it always looks sharp and chic. Basically, I love looking at it. However, there is some cheap hard plastic on the interior that started rattling and vibrating by 6k miles which makes the car sound and feel cheap. I've taken it in twice to try and insulate the noises, but they persist. So even on smooth roads you hear plastic vibrating or rattling unless the music is up. My Audi was never that bad. That really downgrades the experience for me. Reminds me I got the 'cheap' Mercedes. The engine is powerful enough for what it is. Zippy and fun in general. Decent but not very impressive gas mileage. However, it is very hard to get a smooth start from a stand-still. Unless you get the gas just right it can be very jerky(A3 had a little of this too). Can really lag and buck in stop-and-go traffic if moving very slowly then accelerating normally. It is very frustrating! It has nothing to do with auto start/stop, that is ok. It's a transmission thing apparently due to dual clutch design and the turbo (I've read bits about it in other pro reviews)... Once you are rolling, it is pretty smooth and responsive. But pulling away from a full stop is very often a little jerky. That really sucks. It's smoother if you push harder for a quick take-off, but then you are always zooming and with the FWD can be easy to 'peel out', which is kinda embarrassing. So, like the cheap plastic, this downgrades the experience and makes wonder what's so great about Mercedes... Overall, I still like the car and prefer the luxury vibe and features it has over my A3(A3 was a sportier drive). It's a great size for a city (LA) and easy to park. Looks great. Nice to be in. Nice features and useful modern technology. But it has some shortcomings that already have me looking for my next car. I expect a little better from Mercedes-Benz, even if it is the 'cheap' one! So would I recommend it? I said yes but with some caveats. Really depends on what you need and want in your car... I use mine for commuting, road trips, joy riding through the hills to the beach, etc...

I've owned a few Mercedes in the past. This is not the fastest, or the fanciest, but it comes nicely equipped and is fun to drive. The only thing that is weird is how the vehicle is optioned. No XM Radio, but has Android and Apple Car Play which is a work around. Also, no headed seats. I guess Mercedes had to skimp somewhere. LED lights, sunroof, memory seats, full digital dash, keyless entry and start, and full remote telemetrics are included but I am positive at least some of those are options, but still at a 'decent' price. Vehicles drives and handles well, and more than enough power. Actually, I enjoy driving it a lot.

I had been thinking I would buy a Honda Accord but I looked up Mercedes vehicles to see what they offer these days. I gathered my courage to go to the Mercedes Benz dealership In Springfield, MO to look at them. The first car the salesman (Kenton Ice) directed me to was a new A220 4Matic. (He told me it’s called a Baby Benz.). I drove it and bought it. I LOVE IT. I’m thankful to own such a quality car. I love the way it looks ; love the way it drives. Awesome technology on it too. And it is so comfortable.

This A250 Hatch Ive owned for not even a year yet, has spent most of its life in the dealership to be updated/parts replaced/ or to have my safety concerns reviewed. It has lots of functionality and mechanical concerns that I don't trust to leave the city limits with. There is to many concerns to list, but Im currently running a rate of 1 month till something goes wonky in this model, most of them new issues vs repeats.

First time I have leased a Mercedes. Only need a small car and the A220 is perfect. Runs quiet, lots of pep even in ECO mode, still finding bells and whistles. Had a Lexus - but this is so much better.
