Mercedes-Benz Warranty Coverage

Disclosure: This content was produced by an independent editorial party for the purposes of educating our customers, and is not influenced by the other business operations of CARCHEX.

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

What exactly does the Mercedes warranty cover and is this enough warranty protection? We break down Mercedes warranty plans and explain the benefits of purchasing an extended warranty plan through a third-party provider like CARCHEX.

What Is the Mercedes Warranty?

If you buy a new Mercedes-Benz, you automatically get covered by the company’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which covers any defects in material or workmanship for up to 48 months (four years) or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. This is considered a manufacturer warranty or factory warranty.

In addition, Mercedes offers other warranties, including:

  • Tire Protection—Defective tires supplied by Mercedes-Benz are covered for 12 months 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 lists several emissions warranties that cover the requirements for both Federal and California emissions laws, including for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Emissions parts are covered for a wide range of terms, starting at two years or 24,000 miles, up to 15 years or 150,000 miles.
  • Vehicle Service Parts and Accessories Limited WarrantyThis warranty covers Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts, equipment, and factory-approved accessories (outside of tires). The terms vary based on the part, but one 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 certified pre-owned vehicle, then you get the remaining portion of the original owner’s car warranty and an additional 12 months (one year) and up to 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. To make sure you’re qualified to get a Mercedes CPO warranty, check with your Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Repair and Replacement Costs on Mercedes-Benz Vehicles

Mercedes-Benz is a prestigious brand full of innovation and classic design. With a slogan of “the best or nothing,” Mercedes-Benz prioritizes quality, but even quality vehicles need repairs.

According to RepairPal, Mercedes-Benz has a 3.0/5.0 rating, making it less reliable than other car brands. The average annual maintenance and repair costs for a Mercedes-Benz vehicle is $908, which is almost $300 higher than other brands.

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

Model Replacement Cost
Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG S Engine oil pan replacement cost $912–$947
Mercedes-Benz 400SEL Suspension shock or strut replacement cost $2,254–$3,885
Mercedes-Benz E350 Balance shaft replacement $4,850
Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG Drive belt idler pulley replacement $280–$338
Mercedes-Benz E320 Window regulator replacement $537–$768
Mercedes-Benz ML350 Balance shaft replacement $5,500–$7,250

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

Extended Warranty Options for Mercedes-Benz Vehicles

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

When the warranty expires, you want to get protection and maintain peace of mind. The Mercedes-Benz Limited Warranty, described below, is available to Mercedes-Benz owners and can be purchased from a dealership. However, this isn’t the only option. You can buy extended warranties from third-party providers like CARCHEX, which can be more flexible and affordable than the Mercedes selection.

Why CARCHEX? Icons

Mercedes Extended Limited Warranty

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 ends.
  • You choose between one, two, or three-year plans.
  • 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 their technicians for repairs.

Most of the parts included in the New Vehicle Limited Warranty are covered, such as:

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

Some items excluded from the Extended Limited Warranty are:

  • Damage caused by improper care and maintenance
  • Damage caused by accidents and environmental factors
  • Repairs made outside of authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers
  • Everyday wear and tear
  • Normal maintenance services

Although this is a good option for extending your coverage, it doesn’t cover what an extended warranty from a third-party company does: mechanical breakdowns from everyday wear and tear. With a CARCHEX Extended Vehicle Protection Plan, you get powertrain or bumper-to-bumper coverage, in addition to roadside assistance, trip reimbursement, and more. What’s more, vehicles are covered beyond 100,000 miles.

CARCHEX Protection for Mercedes Vehicles

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 a customer satisfaction promise.

Choose from five different levels of protection:

  • Titanium—This bumper-to-bumper coverage includes everything from the engine and transmission to the brakes and emissions. It also includes high-tech electronics. This is the highest level of protection.
  • Platinum—Considered the highest level of state-component coverage, this covers all major systems and is a good bumper-to-bumper option.
  • Gold—This coverage level is a good value option for vehicles over 60,000 miles.
  • Silver—Known as “powertrain plus,” this coverage level includes your vehicle’s major systems, including air conditioning and steering. It protects vehicles with over 100,000 miles (which is beyond the Mercedes-Benz extended warranty).
  • Bronze—This level covers repairs and replacements on powertrain systems, which can be the most expensive repairs.

Each coverage level has several plan options, so you can choose from 16 contracts. Our plans are more flexible and more affordable than dealership plans, lasting up to 10 years. Best of all, they can be purchased at any time.
