Aftermarket Warranty

Hello All, Tony here. Long story short, my CLK 350 is 2 days out of original warranty. I am looking for THE aftermarket warranty that will do what the original and or CNA National Direct will do questions asked repairs with OEM parts and honored by most Mercedes Benz dealer service shops.
I have called MB and they pretty much washed their hands from it falling back on the "you should have called 2 days ago" song. I am asking for help here based on members experiences as to which aftermarket warranty may fit this bill.
Any and all help on this is greatly appreciated. I don't have any pressing issues with my vehicle at present.
Thanks in advance All!!

Really not wanting to kick the dead horse, but if you were thinking of obtaining a good warranty that mirrors the manufacturers, you should have purchased prior to vehicle warranty expiration, I do not know of a single company selling theirs afterwards and it's a shame.
Most I have dealt with in the after market arena are sketchy, very pricey, require an adjuster to inspect before approval of covered repairs, reduced labor rate & part reimbursement coupled to shorter coverage limits. Simply put, to me not worth the multi thousand dollar price tag.
I believe unfortunately you will not find what it is you could have had.

My dealer told me they shopped around looking at various aftermarket warranty companies. In their opinion Fidelity Warranty Services was the best out there. I bought one for 3/36,000 and it has since expired. But during the coverage period they were pretty good. As mentioned above there were some adjuster inspections required but that was only for estimates exceeding $700. If they were less than that, they were approved over the phone. However it barely paid for itself so look at the exclusions carefully.
