Mercedes-Benz Warranty & Safety Information
With every Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz comes peace of mind, because every MBCPO vehicle is backed by one of the most comprehensive pre-owned vehicle limited warranties available.
For starters, any remaining portion of the Mercedes-Benz four-year/50,000 mile* New Vehicle Limited Warranty applies to the vehicle. After that, MBCPO Limited Warranty provides comprehensive vehicle for another 12 months, or up to 100,000 total accumulated miles.* For those MBCPO vehicles that are no longer covered by the New Vehicle Warranty, the MBCPO Limited Warranty takes effect at the time of delivery.
This coverage extends to the engine and powertrain, steering, suspension, brakes (excluding wear of discs and pads), electrical system, climate control system, and more.**
* Whichever comes first.

Extended Limited Warranty: assurance for years to come.
The Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty offers additional coverage options once your 4-year/50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires. Each new option is tailored to fit your personalized ownership experience.
With Extended Limited Warranty there’s no complicated paperwork to process, no deductibles and no hassles. Based on your vehicle model, you can choose an additional 1, 2, or 3 years of warranty coverage beyond the original 48-month/50,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty start date.
The New Vehicle Extended Limited Warranty plans are as follows:
1-year/75,000-mile Extended Limited Option
1-year/100,000-mile Extended Limited Option
2-year/75,000-mile Extended Limited Option
2-year/100,000-mile Extended Limited Option
3-year/75,000-mile Extended Limited Option
3-year/100,000-mile Extended Limited Option
As with the New Vehicle Limited Warranty, each Extended Limited Warranty option covers your vehicle entirely for the year(s) or mileage driven, whichever comes first. Plus, your vehicle will also receive the quality of service and genuine parts that can only come from Mercedes-Benz.
Additionally, you can purchase Mercedes-Benz Extended Limited Warranty coverage at any time prior to the expiration of your original New Vehicle Limited Warranty.** Payment options are similarly flexible: you may decide to prepay the entire Extended Limited Warranty amount up-front, or include the cost in your monthly financing payments. Your dealer can work with you to best determine the approach that suits your needs.
Not available on Maybach or SLR.
*All Trip Interruption claims and documentation must be presented to, and approved by, an authorized Mercedes-Benz Dealership. Please contact the service department at your local dealer for details.
**Surcharge may apply if coverage is purchased 30 days after retail delivery, except in Florida, Wisconsin, and Puerto Rico. Contact your Mercedes-Benz dealership for more details.
When does the extended coverage take effect?

Who will honor my Extended Limited Warranty?
Rest assured: The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Extended Limited Warranty is honored at any of the more than 300 authorized Mercedes-Benz Dealers nationwide and warranty work will be done using Genuine Mercedes-Benz parts.

Safety. Decades of preparation. Milliseconds of proof.
For well over half a century, Mercedes-Benz engineers have been devoted to preparing for a moment they hope never occurs. From the invention of the crumple zone to countless innovations in occupant protection and accident avoidance, the safety firsts of Mercedes-Benz often set a standard that all automobiles eventually follow.
Today, a Mercedes-Benz offers exclusive new breakthroughs to help make an accident less severe, less damaging, or even less likely. True to their heritage, they’re engineered to protect you in ways you might never have imagined. And with the hope that you’ll never have to.
A vision of the immediate future: Preparing for an accident before it happens.
The exclusive PRE-SAFE system can sense that a collision might be imminent, and help prepare for it in the precious moments leading up to it. Using a network of sensors (many of them already serving other safety systems in the vehicle) PRE-SAFE can detect certain conditions that suggest an accident is about to occur, such as extreme skidding. It then tightens the front seat belts, adjusts the front head restraints and passenger seat, and can even close the windows and sunroof, all to better prepare the occupants for more effective results from the restraint systems.
DISTRONIC PLUS with PRE-SAFE Brake
An eye on the road ahead: Automated response to stopped traffic.
Even a moment of driver distraction can have life-changing results. With DISTRONIC PLUS, advanced radar sensors vigilantly scan traffic ahead for stopped or slowing traffic. If the system senses that a collision is imminent, its PRE-SAFE Brake feature automatically initiates up to 40% braking power, audibly alerts the driver, and engages the PRE-SAFE system. When the driver brakes, 100% braking pressure is instantly applied. And should the driver fail to respond, the system can apply full braking on its own, serving as an electronic crumple zone to help reduce the intensity of a collision.
Keeping an eye on you: Early warning for driver drowsiness.
Even in the most exciting vehicle, a long journey can bring about driver fatigue. An industry first, ATTENTION ASSIST takes note of over 70 parameters in the first minutes of a drive to get to know your unique driving style. As your journey continues, it can detect certain steering corrections that suggest the onset of drowsiness. It then considers a wide array of other factors, from crosswinds and road smoothness to how often you’re interacting with the vehicle’s controls and switches. If it all adds up to driver fatigue, ATTENTION ASSIST sounds an alert encouraging you to stop for a rest.
