I liked how the GLA looked, but my wife feels it is too short and more wagon like then the NX. We generally keep our cars for 8-10 years. We currently have a Honda CRV and purchased the Honda Care warranty which has extended it to 8yrs/120000mi. It is about to expire next month, and we did use it a lot (power steering pump, 3 TPMS sensors, TPMS main module, Rear strut, AC blower and a few other misc. stuff) and it is a Honda! I didn't expect to use the extended warranty that much, but was VERY glad I bought it. Considering these new cars have all the new electronics, and safety features in them that practically lets the car drive itself, I am sure that the Merc will have some issues during and after the 4 year warranty period. I just hope the Lexus wont be as bad... Now if they had an extended warranty that will last 8 years, then that would be a consideration! I just googled "Mercedes Reliability" and got all kinds of nightmare stores which is making me skeptical about buying one now.
