    The transmission, eh? Well, not sure if we discussed it in the other post but my car was a mfgr-buyback due a transmission issue. I don't know what the issue was but it immobilized the car and MB bought it back from the original owner. Since we've had it (8.5 months), it has had zero transmission issue so the new transmission(??) or repair has worked well. I think the transmission, especially when using paddle shifters, is pretty **** quick. It's geared well and it is quite fun to shift. My other vehicles are manual transmissions so honestly I don't have experience with other performance cars with this type of transmission but I am pleased with the performance of the transmission. I have a habit of putting it into sport mode with active exhaust on when at a green light, then flooring it and taking 1st gear to 5k or so before shifting, POP, then quick shifting 2nd, POP, quick shifting 3rd, POP, and then into 4th to get to driving speed... -John

    Hello Revitup,
    How's everything Revitup?! Not sure if you remember me but I was the guy who was seriously considering a GLA45 AMG (and still am!) . Here is the POST

    Two months later, I finally found a 2016 version of GLA45 AMG available locally. It got pretty much all the spec i want but less the night package which i might be able to retrofit it afterward.

    The reason why I am contacting you is I want to hear from 2016 owner's prospective if you have any problem with the transmission? Do you feel the car is slow to react or any jerkiness at low speed (say traffic), frequent reverse at parking, or hphill/downhill condition?

    For sure I will test drive the car soon later this week but hearing your opinion/feedback will definitely help me making the right decision at the end.

    Thanks a lot for your time and best regard,

    Terry
