When you buy a new Mercedes-Benz vehicle, you’ll want to make sure you’re protected from paying for costly repairs. New owners get automatic coverage from the Mercedes warranty, but that warranty doesn’t last forever and won’t cover everything.

We’ll explain exactly what the Mercedes warranty covers and whether it provides enough protection for your luxury vehicle. Then, we’ll point out how to get a Mercedes-Benz extended warranty through either the automaker or a reputable independent provider like CARCHEX.

What Is the Mercedes Warranty?

When you buy a new Mercedes-Benz, you automatically get covered by the company’s new vehicle warranty, which covers defects in materials or workmanship for up to four years or 50,000 miles. This is considered a manufacturer’s warranty or factory warranty.

In addition, you’ll receive the following Mercedes warranties:

  • Tire protection: Defective tires supplied by Mercedes-Benz are covered for one year or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Plug-in hybrid electric high-voltage battery limited warranty: If your high-voltage battery is defective, Mercedes will repair or replace it for the first six years or 62,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  • Emission warranties: Mercedes-Benz lists several emissions warranties that cover the requirements for both federal and California emissions laws. Emissions parts are covered for a wide range of terms, starting at two years or 24,000 miles and going up to eight years or 80,000 miles.
  • Vehicle service parts and accessories limited warranty: This car warranty covers genuine Mercedes-Benz parts, equipment, and factory-approved accessories. The terms vary by part, but a notable one is the transmission, which is covered for two years or 24,000 miles.

It’s important to read the entire Mercedes warranty terms and conditions to know exactly what’s covered and what’s not.

Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes Limited Warranty

If you buy a Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle (CPO), then you’ll get the remaining portion of the original owner’s car warranty and an additional year with unlimited mileage. To make sure you’re qualified to get a Mercedes CPO warranty, check with your Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Mercedes-Benz Average Repair Costs

Mercedes-Benz is a prestigious brand known for innovation and classic design. With a slogan of “the best or nothing,” Mercedes models often rely on relatively pricey car parts.

According to RepairPal, Mercedes-Benz has a 3.0- out of 5.0-star reliability rating, making it less dependable than most other car brands. The average annual maintenance and repair cost for a Mercedes-Benz is $908, which is almost $300 higher than the typical brand.

If you’re debating an extended Mercedes warranty, consider these typical repair and replacement costs:




Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG S

Engine oil pan replacement cost


Mercedes-Benz 400SEL

Suspension shock or strut replacement cost


Mercedes-Benz E350

Balance shaft replacement


Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG

Drive belt idler pulley replacement


Mercedes-Benz E320

Window regulator replacement


Keep in mind that prices may be different for a Mercedes-Benz C-Class versus a GLE or an EQS, for example. Still, car owners will likely save money when they pick up a CARCHEX warranty.

You can’t predict when a Mercedes-Benz part will fail, and you don’t want to get stuck paying hundreds or thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses. A Mercedes-Benz extended limited warranty could help to give you the coverage you need at a price you can afford.

Mercedes-Benz Extended Warranty

While your Mercedes warranty will get you through the first few years, the car is going to outlast your warranty plan. In fact, many Mercedes models can last up to 200,000 miles.

When the warranty expires, you’ll want to get protection to maintain peace of mind. The Mercedes-Benz extended warranty is available to owners and can be purchased from a dealership. However, you can also buy flexible and affordable extended warranties from third-party providers like CARCHEX.

Why CARCHEX? Icons

Here’s what you can expect from the extended limited warranty, which is the Mercedes extended warranty option from the dealership:

  • The plan is an extra purchase and isn’t included in your original warranty.
  • Contracts are transferable to subsequent owners.
  • The plan is refundable if canceled before your new vehicle limited warranty coverage ends.
  • You choose between one, two, or three-year plans with varying deductibles.
  • Warranty coverage only extends up to 75,000 miles or 100,000 miles.
  • The plan requires you to visit an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealership and use company technicians for repairs.

Parts Covered by the Mercedes Extended Warranty

  • Powertrain parts, including the engine and transmission
  • Electrical system
  • Fuel injection system
  • Supercharger
  • Steering system
  • Suspension traction and stability systems
  • Turbocharger
  • Climate control
  • Power seat drive cables
  • Cooling system
  • SUV four-wheel drive system
  • Central locking system
  • Navigation system
  • Speakers

Extended Mercedes Warranty Exclusions

Some items excluded from the extended Mercedes warranty are:

  • Damage caused by improper care and maintenance
  • Damage caused by accidents and environmental factors
  • Repairs made outside of authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers
  • Normal wear and tear parts like brake pads and windshield wipers
  • Common maintenance services

Although Mercedes-Benz has a pretty good option for extending your coverage, coverage from independent providers is often cheaper and more comprehensive. With a CARCHEX extended vehicle protection plan, you can get long-lasting coverage in addition to roadside assistance, trip interruption reimbursement, and other benefits.

Why Choose a CARCHEX Warranty?

Wear and tear is inevitable, no matter how diligent you are with general car maintenance. With a CARCHEX extended vehicle protection plan for your Mercedes, you can get peace of mind, protection, and strong customer satisfaction.

Choose from one of the five CARCHEX levels of protection:

  • Titanium: This bumper-to-bumper coverage option includes everything from the engine and transmission to brakes, high-tech parts, and the climate control system.
  • Platinum: Considered the highest level of stated component coverage, this covers all major systems and provides extensive vehicle protection.
  • Gold: This coverage level is a special value for Mercedes-Benz vehicles with over 60,000 miles.
  • Silver: Known as “powertrain plus,” this coverage level includes your vehicle’s major systems, including air conditioning and steering. It can protect vehicles with over 100,000 miles on them, which is beyond the Mercedes extended warranty.
  • Bronze: This level covers repairs and replacements on the powertrain system, which contains many of your car’s most expensive parts.

Each CARCHEX coverage level has several plan options, so you can choose from up to 16 contracts. Our plans are often more flexible and affordable than dealership plans and can last for up to 10 years. Also, our Mercedes warranties can be purchased at any time.

CARCHEX Extended Warranty Benefits

When it comes to protecting your Mercedes-Benz, a CARCHEX warranty has you covered. While you’ll receive protection against mechanical breakdowns, you’ll also get additional coverage benefits such as:

  • Claims paid directly to the repair facility: CARCHEX makes it quick and easy for you to get to the Mercedes-Benz services you need without having to pay upfront.
  • Multiple payment options: CARCHEX protection plans are vehicle service contracts that can be paid for upfront or in monthly payments.
  • Customer experience above all: As a brand promise to you, CARCHEX prioritizes our commitment to service with every extended Mercedes warranty.
  • 30-day money-back guarantee: We back our products and services with a full satisfaction guarantee. You’ll get a full reimbursement if you’re not satisfied with your plan during the first 30 days.
  • Emergency roadside assistance: If your Mercedes-Benz breaks down on the side of the road, CARCHEX will make sure you get immediate care and towing services.
  • Your choice of repair facility: If you prefer the accessibility of a local mechanic, you can likely select them from over 30,000 certified repair shops. Mercedes-Benz requires its warranty holders to head to one of the automaker’s own service centers.
  • Low prices everyday: When you call us for a quote, we’ll give you a competitive price upfront on your potential Mercedes warranty.

It’s smart to get a car warranty quote from CARCHEX to figure out how much vehicle protection could cost for you. That way, you’ll be able to decide whether or not it’s worth it to purchase an extended Mercedes warranty.
