RE: Factory Maintenance Plans
It looks like the dealer wants to make money on you, by selling a non MB policy. I would not do it!
The standard new car warranty is 48 months of five years which ever comes first, and covers most things except wear and tear. In 01 and 02 they also included maintenance, oil, wiperrs, air fliters and items under the service "A" or "B" schedule under the new car warranty period. They also offered an extended warranty that had to be purchased during the first year that took over when the "new" car warranty ended this warranty (thru MBUSA) was available from 12 months to 48 months, and was either premium or basic. The basic coverd the drive train, and premium cuvered most things except the audio system, and self dimming mirors. It is much like the "starmark" warranty.I have only purchased a non manufacturer policy once on a new car, and was left holding the bag when I needed it since the company was not to be found, four years later.
They have since discontinued the free maintenance plan, my Extended Warranty brochure shows $3540 for S and CL 48 month premium coverage
