What is the Mercedes-Benz Warranty?

Mercedes-Benz Logo closeup

When you purchase a new Mercedes-Benz, it’s protected by the Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Warranty. This warranty covers material and craftsmanship defects for 48 months or 50,000 miles. If you want additional coverage, you can opt for the extended warranty later down the road. You can also enjoy comprehensive coverage if you choose a pre-owned model. Read on to learn more about your Mercedes-Benz warranty options and what you can expect from a new or used car. 


Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Limited Warranty Coverage 

Again, the Mercedes-Benz factory warranty covers material and craftsmanship defects for 48 months or 50,000 miles — whichever comes first. This new vehicle limited warranty coverage spans many areas, including powertrain, corrosion perforation, and roadside assistance. Here’s a list of what’s notcovered under this warranty: 

  • Brake pads
  • Wheel alignment and balancing
  • Wiper blades and inserts
  • Batteries for remote controls (including the keyless EASY ENTRY® system)
  • Glass

It’s important to note that certain repairs may not be covered depending on how the damage occurred. For example, if you damage your car driving through high water after heavy rainfall, the warranty won’t cover the repair costs. 

Mercedes-Benz Extended Warranty Coverage 

After the initial Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Limited Warranty tapers off, the Mercedes-Benz extended warranty will kick in. This coverage option gives drivers one, two, or three years of added protection — up to 100,000 miles depending on what’s most sensible for them. In addition to extended coverage, this warranty includes several benefits for the driver, such as: 

  • Help keep the market value.
  • Transferable if the owner sells the car
  • 100% refundable if canceled before the expiration of the New Vehicle Warranty
  • Service by Mercedes-Benz technicians
  • Access to the latest diagnostic equipment and software 
  • No deductibles
  • Honored at more than 350 authorized Mercedes-Benz dealerships

Pre-Owned Limited Warranty Coverage 

In many cases, when Clayton drivers buy a CPO Mercedes-Benz, the vehicle still has some time left on its New Vehicle Limited Warranty. After that warranty expires, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Warranty will begin, delivering coverage for another 12 months with unlimited miles. What’s more, this warranty covers all of the following areas throughout its duration: 

  • Engine components
  • Steering
  • Suspension
  • Electrical system
  • Climate control system
  • Brakes
  • And more!
