Interested in a MB GL-warranty question

Posted this in another forum as well..

I have been looking at an 07 GL450 locally (MB Dealership) and was just wondering about MB warranties/certifications.

The deal is for a Black 07 w/ 41,905 miles and just ran out of the original warrant last month. I have been talking to a salesman about the certification process and costs and it just seems crazy.

I can get the car for $37,995 (is that a good price?) certified. I thought being certified was a big deal, well he says that it's only good for 1 year or 100k. Wow, im not going to put 100k on it in a year, so thats pointless. I can extend it for another year, so 2 years from now for $ 1,895.00 or 3 years total for $2595.

This seems like a lot, what would your guys recommendation be? Is it a bad idea to buy this SUV without any type of warranty?

I dont think you are getting a MB warranty, otherwise they would have Starmarked it, you can roll the dice and put the 3K into a Money Market.

That's 100k total miles on the car, not 100K that you put on.

This car could NOT have run out of original warranty, which is 4 years/50K miles. If this car was built in June '06 it's likely one of the first 10 GLs ever built.

If there is original warranty left, it covers everything you can think of. CPO covers less.

If the car has been designated CPO, you're not going to get that removed. The one year portion of the CPO warranty doesn't commence until the original warranty expires. You will have one year + to decide on purchasing your next warranty.

$41k seems a bit highto me with those miles, I think you cuold easily pay $41 including the 3 year extended warrenty, but only if its a MB warrenty, you do not want to get screwed with one of those off brand warrenties that have alot of fine print. There are some decent non dealer warrenty companies out there but be very cautious.
