Greetings from Nubie with question

Hello. I've been on many car forums, and understand the frustration when old topics are beaten to death....so I did search before posting, and only found what appears to be outdated info.

I'm contemplating buying an 05 SL500. I've usually had younger vehicles. Can I buy a warranty for this car that is worth anything? The car has 45k on it, and obviously is well out of warranty.

What is your advice for me? In advance, I greatly appreciate it.

Regards,
Richard

That is a perfect candidate for an extended warranty b/c nothing is going to be cheap to fix on it. I would try to see if you can buy something directly from MB because all of the third party extended warranties will have tones of bs restrictions that will make it more of a headache to use.

I agree 100% that a MB warranty is the best out there. But unless things changed recently, MB will not sell you a warranty on that car. Some dealers sell aftermarket ones so you might check into that. That's what I did and it turned out O.K. Read the exclusions very carefully.
