My extended 8 year/100 is just about to lapse on my 01E. I just got a letter from MB offering additional warranty if the car had under 75K, but it was not a Mercedes warranty. Evidently the dealership has someone they are dealing with, and offered to waive the $300 inspection fee if I signed up. I think it was around $3K for three years and excluded some things
I origionally paid $2700 in 02, and they made money on me, 1 window regulator, 2 A/C repairs (sensor), visor mirror, and new steering wheel buttons.

Since Peter mentioned an inspection fee, in order for mine to become effective immediately, I too had to pay $35 for the dealer to inspect it. Otherwise there was a waiting period, 30 days I think. The tech thought I needed an air filter, I agreed to let him replace it, so it cost me a bit more but less then $100. I had a spare in the trunk and they charged $22 to switch them out.

I bought my coverage from www.warrantyelite.com

The best extended warranty is www.warrantyelite.com . I decided to look online and I found that these guys were highly rated. I caled my dealer and their quote was higher than these guys and the coverage with warranty elite ws better! They were the only company that i could get an online quote for my clk without having to enter any personal info. I found out what the price was and what the coverage was without having to talk with a sales person! When i called them, this group is not paid on commssion, they did not pressure sell me, they answered the questions and even recommended that i wait a few months until I got closer to the end of my factory coverage! Everyone else was telling buy buy buy. I would highly encourage anyone who is looking at an extended warranty to take a look. The company is A rated by the BBB and the service contract is backed by an A rated Insurance Company.

Agreed, I looked at it too and didn't find it very helpful either.
