How good is MB Extended Warranty?

Bought Certified C230 from private owner, called MB and transferred it to my name. Now I need few things worked on
1. Exhaust Tip is touching the bumper
2. Driver Seat is squeaking
3. Front Suspension/Steering feels loose when I steer the steeringwheel when I am stopped
4. Car Rattles/Vibrates after the start until engine warms up.

Now how good are these MB Extended warranty?
I've never had any problems with Lexus Extended warranty.

Thanks

Read it to see exactly what, how and when something is covered. It also should spell out what ancillary expenses you must cover (e.g. liquids, filters, etc.).

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

My experience with the CPO warranty was excellent but I didn't have any of your symptoms. I think it should cover the suspension/steering and the rattling/vibration on warmup. The exhaust tip might be considered abuse (like hitting something that forced it upward). I don't know about the squeaky seat but suspect that would depend on why it is squeaking.

Like Joe advised, read the warranty carefully and ask the dealer to evaluate the car. It's my understanding that it will not cover consumables like all fluids/filters, air filters, brake pads/rotors, tires and wiper blades.
