Overview

The Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty offers one year of bumper-to-bumper coverage with no mileage restriction. It also boasts special financing rates, no deductible and full transferability to the next owner, should you sell the vehicle before the coverage has ended. Although the warranty is short, Mercedes also offers drivers the opportunity to pay an added cost to renew it for extra coverage.

What We Like

Special financing rates; no mileage limit; full transferability; no deductible

What We Don't

Short coverage term; adding additional coverage costs extra

Program Specifics

If you're interested in a used Mercedes-Benz, you may want to consider the brand's certified pre-owned program. It offers excellent bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage with no deductible, giving you serious peace of mind and potentially saving you money, should something break.

The most important selling point of the Mercedes-Benz CPO program is the warranty, which offers one year of bumper-to-bumper coverage with no mileage cap from the day you buy your certified pre-owned car. While one year is a fairly mediocre coverage term in the luxury car world, we're impressed by the warranty's unlimited mileage figure. The warranty can also be extended once the year is up, though doing so requires a hefty additional fee.

The Mercedes-Benz CPO program also boasts a few other benefits for car shoppers looking for a worry-free way to own a Mercedes. For one, the warranty is fully transferable, should you decide to sell before your coverage has expired. Additionally, there's no deductible on repairs, which means you won't pay a thing if your certified pre-owned Mercedes needs work that's covered under the warranty.

Our take? While the Mercedes-Benz CPO warranty is very short, it provides excellent peace of mind, especially if you renew it for a couple of years after it expires. We'd also shop the competition, as BMW and Audi offer 6-year warranties from the date the car is originally sold, which often gives used-car shoppers two or three years of bumper-to-bumper coverage at no charge.
