Mercedes Extended Warranty: Protect Your Investment

If your Mercedes-Benz vehicle breaks down, repairs can be expensive. In a comparison of 30 automakers,  Clark ranked Mercedes-Benz as the second most expensive to maintain over 10 years. Should something happen on the road, extended warranty coverage could save you from unexpected repair costs.

Keep reading to learn more about what is covered by a Mercedes extended warranty, why it’s a good decision to get extra coverage, and how CARCHEX can help.

What Is Covered by a Mercedes Factory Warranty?

Currently, all Mercedes-Benz vehicles are protected by a New Vehicle Limited Warranty that covers defects in material or workmanship for four years or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. Parts and labor are included. In addition:

  • There are several emission performance and control warranties. The terms depend on what state you live in and whether your vehicle is a hybrid, but they range from two years or 24,000 miles to as long as 15 years or 150,000 miles.
  • The plug-in hybrid electric high voltage battery has a limited warranty of six years or 62,000 miles.
  • The Mercedes-Benz tire warranty lasts 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • A Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Service Parts and Accessories Limited Warranty is also included. The terms are based on the part .

Unlike most car manufacturers, there is not a separate Mercedes-Benz powertrain warranty—it’s included in the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

If you purchase a certified pre-owned (CPO) Mercedes, you’re covered for the remainder of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, with an additional 12 months or unlimited miles of coverage through the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty.

Basically, these warranties mean that the only vehicle parts covered by your dealership warranty are parts that were originally supplied and manufactured by Mercedes. Damage from regular use isn’t covered.

If something is excluded from the original Mercedes-Benz warranty, or if your warranty expires, those parts will not be covered, leaving you responsible for expensive repairs.

What’s Not Covered Under a Mercedes-Benz Factory Warranty:

  • Tire and rim damage
  • Brake pads and discs
  • Wiper blades and inserts
  • Damage from accidents, misuse, or negligence
  • Damage from lack of maintenance
  • Wheel alignment
  • Normal maintenance
  • Damage from alterations or improper body repairs
  • Altered odometer
  • Damage from the environment (tree sap, road salt, wind, etc.)
  • Glass damage
  • Extra expenses (rental reimbursement, lodging costs, etc.)
  • Changes in design
  • Interior surface damage
  • Racing or competitive events

Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty

If you want to continue coverage through the Mercedes-Benz dealership, the manufacturer offers an Extended Limited Warranty instead of a traditional extended warranty plan.

When your New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires, you can choose to purchase extended protection for one, two, or three years, or up to 75,000 miles or 100,000 miles. Coverage is essentially the same as your original Mercedes warranty.

If you have a Mercedes-Benz CPO (MBCPO) vehicle, you can purchase an Extended Limited Warranty for one year or 120,000 miles, or two years or 135,000 miles.

Should I Get a Mercedes Extended Warranty?

The Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty is far from your only option if you want extended protection. Extended warranties from the dealership limit you to using their technicians, repair shops, and parts. That doesn’t allow you much flexibility when it comes to service or prices.

While Mercedes vehicles are known for their class and sophistication, they are not known for their reliability. The RepairPal reliability rating is “average,” while only one 2018 model and no 2019 models received a Dependability Award from J.D. Power. In fact, Mercedes reliability rankings have fluctuated over the last few decades due to constant breakdowns and issues with the car.

If you wait until your vehicle breaks down to get extended coverage, it might be too late. For more coverage options, consider getting an extended car warranty for your Mercedes through a third-party company like CARCHEX.

Is a Mercedes Extended Warranty Worth It?

You don’t want to be left paying hundreds, or thousands, of dollars for Mercedes repairs. Did you know that the average annual maintenance cost for a Mercedes-Benz is $908? Extended protection for your car offsets repair costs, protecting your budget from an expensive surprise.

Mercedes vehicles may experience problems, such as:

  • Rough shifting of automatic transmission—Typically, Mercedes-Benz E350 vehicle owners may experience rough shifting from first to second gear or third gear to second gear. This can be caused by internal component failure.
  • Active body control system can leak hydraulic fluid—The system can leak fluid from a variety of areas including the tandem pump, hydraulic lines, and seals. If not fixed immediately, the vehicle ride height could decrease, causing damage to the undercarriage. This issue is mainly experienced by Mercedes-Benz SL500 vehicles.
  • Faulty camshaft adjuster solenoid—This part, related to the variable valve timing system, may fail resulting in a Check Engine light or other driving issues. In general, Mercedes-Benz E350 vehicles will have this problem.
  • Ignition failure from old spark plugs—If you don’t replace your spark plugs every 75,000–90,000 miles, it can lead to engine power loss and damage the components.

Mercedes-Benz Repair Costs

In addition to a low reliability ranking, Mercedes repairs are extremely costly without an extended warranty.

Take a look at common Mercedes repair estimates.

  • Heater core replacement: $1,301–$1,646
  • ABS system diagnosis: $88–$111
  • AC condenser replacement: $582–$825
  • Suspension shock or strut assembly replacement: $898–$941
  • Locked-up brakes: $800
  • Wheel bearings replacement: $287.35–$316.35

Don’t wait until your original Mercedes-Benz warranty expires to get extended coverage on your vehicle. Whether you have a new or used Mercedes, you can get an extended warranty through CARCHEX today, which can reduce expensive repair costs in the future.
