Extended Warranty

I am brand new to the world of Mercedes. I just bought my wife a 2005 E320 with the AMG and premium package. It does not have the power of the E55 that I wanted; but nevertheless, the car is still way cool.

I am looking at purchasing the 7yr/100,000 mile extended warranty plan from Warranty Direct. The plan will cost around $1,800. I noticed that the plan does not cover the GPS navigation system or the exhaust and emission system. Should I be concered about this? Is Warranty Direct a reputable company?

Also, would it be better for me to purchase the extended warranty plan from the dealer.

RE: Extended Warranty

15 years I did purchased an extended warranty on my Mitsubishi car. The company went out of business.

If you want to avoid the head aches, I would stick with the Mercedes official warranty. Call this person and see what deal you can get.

RE: Extended Warranty

I have about one year warranty left on my CLK55. My 2002 has only 23K miles on it, but was first driven in November 2001.

Does that mean, I have a year to buy an extension, or is there an advantage to doing it earlier?

What is not covered on this kind of warranty from MBZ?

RE: Extended Warranty

I was told that you must buy the MB warranty in the first 12 months of owning the car. Give Lisa a call and find out more info.
