Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program

Overview

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

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; no longer-term powertrain coverage; limited added-value perks

Program Specifics

The most important selling point of the Mercedes-Benz CPO program is the warranty, which offers one year of limited coverage with no mileage cap from the day you buy your certified pre-owned car. This additional 12 months becomes effective once the 4-years or 50,000 miles terms of the original new-car warranty expire. If the original new-car warranty is expired, the CPO warranty kicks in on the sale date of the pre-owned vehicle. 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 to another private party, should you decide to sell before your coverage has expired. Additionally, there’s no deductible on covered repairs,  meaning you won’t pay a thing if your certified pre-owned Mercedes needs work covered under the warranty.

Our take? While the Mercedes-Benz CPO warranty is very short, it provides peace of mind, especially if you renew it for a couple of years after it expires. We’d also shop the competition. Many, such as Lexus, have longer CPO warranty coverage.

  1. It is not ‘bumper to bumper’ as stated above. I am learning that the hard way right now with a used CLS550 I bought 4 months ago.

    • The Dealer will call it bumper-to-bumper…until you bring it in for a warranty repair.  That’s when you learn there is a limited number of components covered, and the terse, “Any component not listed below is NOT COVERED.

  2. A CPO car previously sold to a non MB dealership will keep its CPO status? Thinking about buying  a car whose history says it was CPO before being sold to the dealer I am thinking to buy from.

    • We think the answer is no.

      Ask the selling dealer, if the car has a Mercedes-Benz warranty, they’d use that as a selling point. Here’s what Mercedes-Benz says: “If you sell your Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz to a private party, its new owner can continue the Extended Limited Warranty coverage.” Might want to call Mercedes-Benz just to be sure – (1-800-FOR-MERCEDES)

    • Some automakers do allow that. You should ask your local dealer – most of the time they can sell you SOMEthing, but will it be backed by Mercedes? Not sure. The thing with CPO is that they inspect, qualify and repair the car ahead of time. So based on the mileage and history of your car, they might not have CPO’d the car in the first place – or the might have. Can’t hurt to ask.

    • Hi Bobby – this info is helpful – did you have to netotiate to get to $2,400?  I was quoted $3,445 yesterday for a 18k miles, E350 4Matic 2014 Lux.

  3. The One Year is in addition to any remaining warranty for the original Manufacturers Warranty, So based on how much was left, you could have 3 or 4 years coverage with no mileage limitaions.
