Was sort of surprised by the cost, which at over 38k, is not a cheap car.

I’ve already admitted I like the B-class, after my experience with one in Europe. Unfortunately, that is not sold here so I can’t figure out if it was a holiday romance or if I actually like the car. However, Mercedes decided to start selling the A-class this year. That means I could get one of those. If they had a manual in this, I would probably actually get one. The lack of one is off-putting for me, but I’m starting to come to terms that my next car is probably going to be an automatic. I really do want to drive one of these to see how I like it, but for now the 3 isn’t going anywhere.
