    Default Advice for heavily discounted GLAs at Downtown MB?

    Noticed on FB that Downtown MB is selling 2020 GLAs that are brand new for $33,900. That is $6000 below dealer cost according to Unhaggle. They come with warranty to 2025. Does this seem a little too good to be true? Could someone not drive this for 1-2 years and sell at a minimal loss? Hoping some of the knowledgeable MB beyonders can chime in. I know nothing about Mercedes.

    making room for 2021? the 2020 will look immediately dated when the new ones land. Pretty fair deal based on that I think.

    Possibly were ordered for car2go duty, with them pulling out of all NA markets they now have a surplus... combine that with covid and perfect recipe for fire sale.

    Would probably lease out well... fun little cars with some practicality

    They probably over ordered and got stuck with it. Probably a very base model that very few willing to take on. As well as GLB has already landed and is 10x better in utility, interior quality and tech. Nobody in their right mind will pick a GLA over GLB at the same price.

    It's a good price you if are ok with base audio system. The system should have CP/AA support.

    I don't know about driving for 1-2 years with minimal loss. Wholesale of used car has dropped 10% but given they took 20% off MSRP and give you 1 extra year warranty, it may be set you back to the normal depreciation curve.

    Interesting. They are CPO with 90kms on them.

    No wonder they got 5 year warranty.

    Thanks for the replies. One of their sales guys confirmed they got them from Car2go at a heavily discounted price.
    It does suck that none of them have the upgraded sound system. Their demo models with more KMs are listed for higher prices.
    They're not willing to allow leases through MB finance on these.

    Can't figure out what options they have to make them the $49k msrp pricing. Looks like all have navigation and most I think have parking/360 cam. Had been looking out for an suv for my sister, so this is pretty great deal.

    No Car2Go has always been MB.

    Sharenow is the MB BMW JV that bought Car2Go shortly before they pulled out of our market.

    So Car2Go as we know it has always been MB only.

    If these are all former car2go, I would stay away, those were treated worse than rental cars

    I believe a lot of dealerships are required to buy out their old (but new) stock. Which in this case the 2019 CLA/GLAs with 90km on the odometer are consider as 'pre-owned' so that's why you can't lease them.

    These were intended to become car2go fleet, but never entered service.

    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins' mullet.

    The 97 doesn't look like they have been put into service. All under 90km, which is MB talk for new car.

    But I bet they were registered under Car2Go but was never put into rotation and Car2Go just quit and stranded these.

    Seems like it. They have like 70+ 2019 CLA which have carfax for rentals, all <9000km for around $29k so those must have been part of the actual fleet.
