So I just picked up my CLA edition 1 last week and this morning as Im driving my parents around in it for the first time my yellow check engine light came on.

Has anyone had any experience with this yet?
Unfortunatly I dont have the maintenence package added on yet (my benz manager was kind of a jack *** and never returned my calls when I tried to add it on this week)


Nevermind. It looks like this issue has already been discussed.

How many miles do you have on your car? I believe you can still add a maintenance package before your car is due for its first regularly scheduled maintenance. So if your car has less than 5,000 miles (which is when the first scheduled maintenance is due I believe) then you can still get it.

Car only had like 400 miles on it when the light came on. They said it was a wiring issue. when I went to pick it back up i drove out of the dealership and realized the light was still on so i made a Uturn and dropped it right back off.
They still dont know whats going on.

BTW i think the first scheduled maintenance is at 10K miles. I didnt get the maintainence package. Kinda regretting it tho.

Actually according to the Maintenance Booklet the first scheduled service is at 5000 miles. It just involves tire rotation but still a scheduled service.

I got mine from prestige in paramus. I didnt know about that tire rotation. Either way I did get the top of the line tire package so I can rock those 18 inch wheels all year. It just sux that i got the car 2 weeks ago and its been at the dealer all of last week because of that stupid check engine light.

What do you mean by top of the line tire package. I wasn't aware there's a tire package also. I thought the standard and only tires you can get on 18" rims are summer tires. What tires do you have?

lol my bad..what i mean by that is the tire package that covers the scratchs and dings on the rims and all the tire issues. its like 40ish extra a month.
Im not sure what tires i have actually..I got the edition 1 but i would think there the same tires as the sports package one.

Has anyone else had problems so soon with the CLA? Is this a one off problem or are there some quality control issues here?

Ace ... what is the status? I bet your issue is part of the software update issue that has plagued the car since launch. Your dealer should have the update in its hands already. My car just arrived at Brunswick, GA Port on Thursday and will be in dealer's lot by Tuesday. Sales Rep advised me they'll perform the software update and get it ready for delivery by Friday. From posts here and other CLA site, the software issue has plagued all cars produced through the last production decade in mid-November.
