Vibration when coming to stop

Hey all,
I finally got the CLA. I've been happy but there is definitive vibration when the car downshifts from 3 to 2 to 1 when coming to a stop. Nobody knows if this is normal or not. Mercedes says it's normal. Also when braking at around 30 mph there is another type of vibration. Also, when in "sport" mode the handling is really jerky. Any thoughts?

Thats weird. Is their a vibration at idle when stopped?
I'm thinking it could be the engine mounts

No there is not a vibration on idle it's only when coming to a slow stop. Others have said because it's a manual-automatic you will feel the downshifting. But who knows?!

Does this occur during downshift or braking? If braking it's probably an issue with the disc or pad, especially if during the entire period. When you say the vibration is during the downshift, do you mean right when the gears change or during the entirety of slowing down? And as the above asked, is it something you feel in the steering wheel or in the car as a whole?

The vibration is from the car as it is downshifting from 3 to 2 to 1 to when I stop. It seems to be during the gear change.I called Mercedes and the rep said, again, because it's a manual in automatic I would feel the vibration. Still unsure. My Mitsubishi Eclipse I had never felt like this. I'm surprised that a Mercedes does not feel smooth. Also what's with the jerky feeling in "Sport" mode? Thanks

If thats normal... well i don't know what to say about that...

hard to say without being inside your car.

is the vibration throughout the entire downshift rev drop? vibration as in buzzing through the car? or jerking?

Ditto. If it really is the downshift it's kind of hard to tell without being in person. It could be normal (again, this is one of those things that you can spend 1000 words describing and it would take all of one second in person to see). If Mercedes says it is normal why not test drive other cars with paddle shifters and see if it is there? At least then you have more to argue with them about.

like sleepyhead said, if MB is so adamant this standard operating procedures see if you can get your hands on one of their CLA demos and replicate the situation. If it doesnt replicate you win, if it does they win....
