That's because you went with a Starmark warranty, which is a good way to go. Chances are that an after-market warranty would not have covered the total cost. However, Shawn, you probably paid a higher price for your car at a MB authorized dealership.
Dreizack: Yes, of course I paid a higher price for the S500 by buying from the dealership, yet it's the only way to purchase the extra two year warranty from Starmark. [:)] I'm sure the original Starmark Certification process cost money too.

I've seen private parties advertising the same car for the same price I paid at the dealership. I've also seen sellers advertising for $10k less than the dealership. But we all know the adage: "You get what you pay for..."

Personally, with my luck, I usually always get an extended a warranty as possible on BMW's & Mercedes Benz. It's just good insurance for me... [:I]

"If money can fix it, it's not a problem..."

RE: Extended Warranty - Should I buy it?

I am a finance manager at a dealership in Milwaukee. For that cost, I would not buy the extended warranty. The chance of you spending $5500 in 30k miles in slim. That warranty should not cost more than $2500
