I could be wrong, but I think you would have to extend your warranty within your original new-car warranty period to accomplish this. I have seen an MB brochure on the subject, and it is pro-rated, so the earlier you do it, the less it costs.

If what I was told by three Benz dealers is correct, you can only get the Starmark warranty on a used vehicle purchased from a Benz dealer and only at the time of purchase. The standard warranty is a year beyond the factory warranty, but you can buy an additional year. If you buy a car from the Benz dealer without the Starmark warranty, you cannot add it. That's probably because it is underwritten by Mercedes.
You have to buy an "aftermarket" extended warranty while the new car warranty is in effect and the cost is based on the mileage as well. Cheapest is under 24,000, then 35,000 miles and they won't write one at 49,000.
Every insurance company invests their premiums to earn interest. But, there is a little help in that the Mercury policy allows a 20% down and 12 months of payments with no interest or service charge.
