Extended Warranty - C280 4 matic

I just asked my local dealer for a quote on an extended warranty for my C280-4matic. It is coming off the original mfg warranty in the coming months. He quoted me a little over $6,500 ! Searching on this site I saw prices on various models that were half of that. Is this a valid price for an extended warranty through a dealer?

That's probably full list price and sounds about right. I've read that these are negotiable so I'd call around for quotes. If you're convinced you need one, the one from MB is the best one to buy. Just curious: how many years and miles does the $6500 represent?

OK, thanks. That used to the upper limit that MB will allow and probably still is. The hook with the MB warranties is that the later you buy them the more they cost. That same dealer would have probably sold you the same thing during your 1st 12 months of ownership for 1/2 that.
