extended warranty?

i recently purchased an 03 E55 and have about 10k left of the factory warranty... is it worth it to purchase an extended warranty? If so, should it be purchased directly from the dealer?

Thanks!

I believe that a 24 month extended warranty on an E class is $2,595 and will cover you up to 100,000 miles, or I think up to 24 months after your new car warranty expieres (whichever comes first). The MBUSA site has all the details. My personal view is that any major repair on a Mercedes can cost more than the warranty and is a worthwhile investment. Others feel that thier cars are trouble free and the warranty is a waste of money.

I am the second owner of an '03 S430 that had 10,000 miles to go on the new car warranty and I purchased a 24 month contract from MB. This warranty will cover me to December 2010 as I only put about 10,000 miles on a year.

Not true, but I think you have to buy it through a M-B franchised dealership. I bought a Certified Pre-Owned E320 and I am the 2nd owner. It was out of factory warranty, but they "give" you 12 months and up to 100,000 miles (whichever comes 1st). It had 52,000 when I bought it, and realizing I would never drive anywhere near 48,000 in the 12 months, I opted to extend it to 24/100,000. That cost me $1,845.00.

You can not buy an extended warranty for an MB through an MB dealer unless the car is a CPO. The dealer will not offer a warranty for a used car they did not sell. If you purchase a CPO from the dealer, they will offer an extended warranty of 12 or 24 months. The cost is dependent upon which vehicle you are purchasing. In my case, the SL was on the most expensive catagory. It was expensive, but the peace of mind of not having to spend money on major repairs is worth it.
