How long do you plan on keeping it, 2500 in the bank will earn intrest, a major repair could deplete it. Only get an MB policy!

I will keep it about 10 years. The only issue is " Is it bumper to bumper and for how long?" I know that repair bills can run high but what are the chances of getting 2500 in repairs during an extended warranty. Does the car have a history of a major failure that an extended warranty is recommended.

i would definitely have to recommend buying it. Purchased my car in 2000 warranty over a couple of years ago had a few problems which werent covered. I would have rather had the peace of mind than having to worry about car expenses. So if you plan to keep the car for a long period of time because Mercedes mostly tend to run for a pretty long time if you take care of it. So again i would say purchase it.

If you are going to keep the car for ten years you should buy the best policy avaiable. Only buy the Mercedes Star Mark plan offered through a Mercedes Benz Dealership. I bought one for my 97 S 320 in 2000 it was bumper to bumper 100,000 mile coverage and brought me piece of mind and saved me a lot of money. If you sell the car it is transferable. I never had any problems with the dealership honoring it. Repairs on thses cars can be VERY expensive.

I am another believer in a Mercedes extended warranty and for the same reasons already mentioned.
