Warranty information

I asked this question before, but no one responded, so here it is again.

Can an extended warranty be bought from the Mercedes dealer at any time during the normal warranty period of the vehicle? I recently bought a 2006 CLK350 Cabriolet from the MB dealer and was told that I could only buy the extended warranty within the first 30 days of the purchase date. Is this true??

Thanks,

JJ

Depends on the state. In Minnesota an extended warranty can be purchased even after the basic one has expired, however, it's often much cheaper to buy one at the outset.

BTW, what kind of a jet do you jock?

It is the cheapest when you buy the car, they told me I had one year, then I heard anytime before the warranty lapses, but the price goes up. They try and get you early, some dealers even push non MB warranties, they get more in commission.

You can buy up to the expiration of the original new car warranty. It should cost the same anytime during the original warranty period.

I would think someplace on this board a Mercedes manager would give some of us a price break.

This is the same freedom to dealer policy, as we are beginning to see now, charging labor to replace a battery, charging a premium if Road Aid is used after business hours and bringing only gas not diesel. MBCA does not use any influence on MBUSA. And MBUSA lets their dealers do what they want.

I am in BC. I bought mine shortly before the normal warranty expired. I was told that I could not have saved any money had I bought any earlier.

Gentlemen,

Thanks for your responses. I'll touch base with the MB dealer this coming week to check out what they have to say. I just wanted to go to that meeting with the correct information.

Since I've retired last year, I don't get to fly anything exciting any more, but here's a few photos of the jets that I did most of my hours in. The F-100, the A-10, and as captain on this MD-11. Finally, enjoy this video: YouTube - Fedex MD-11

Thanks again,

JJ

No, I don't personally know him, but I do know of him. He's flying as captain on the MD-11 out of Memphis. He is a little junior to me, perhaps 3 to 4 years or so.
