I was 2015. I bought my first Mercedes. It was CLA 250 4MATIC, 211 PS, "AMG line", lowered sport suspension, on the wheels 225/40/ R18. Already under first months I noticed that car was very sidewind sensitive. I live in Sweden but I drove also in Germany. At relatively normal wind here,12-15 m/s, all routes on highways, at good weather I didn’t dare exceed 120 km/h several times just because car became unstable of wind blowing. I had before Audi A3 1.8T, 180 PS & I used to drive at 180 km/h without stress. The same time most of cars on the road has overtaken me easily in the same weather conditions, I mean even these much less cars as Ford Fiesta, Toyota Auris, Opel Corse and so on. I felt myself safe in the car at max. 140 km/h on the dry two-lane road in the middle of the day. Over this speed I was really scared that wind would blow the car off the road. Do anyone of you, CLA owners had similar exeprience? I have some arguments to discuss.
