What should I look for in a used Mercedes A Class hatchback?

The latest A-Class hasn't been out that long, so its reliability is hard to judge accurately because there's still very little data on the car.

We can say, though, that the old A-Class had a shocking record, especially when you consider that it is made by a premium brand. Faults were incredibly common, and at over £500 for the average repair bill, it was also very pricey to fix.
