I've got an opportunity to re-up the warranty on my 04 SL500 through my local dealer. 3 months left on my CPO warranty. The are offered me the extension at 4600.00 for 0.00 deductible. Got them down to 3000.00 with 0.00 deductible. 27K miles on the car right now. Was in the shop 3 times last year for Trunk Closing Assist Mechanism, Crank Position Sensor and AC resistor. All fixed at no cost under CPO.

Thinking 3K is cheap insurance or 5 years...but I only drive the car a couple of thousand miles per year. Thoughts ?

Do you mean 3K for 5 years, with 0 deductible :eek:? If so, that is the best deal I have ever heard from a MB dealer!

I won't even think twice. Get it!

Think about if you want to sell it in the next few years. The warranty would serve as a great leverage for your asking price.

PS: How did you manage to talk them down to 3K? Will they do out of state? Can you put in a few words for a pal at this dealer :D, 'cos I need to renew my warranty too?

$3K for 5 years? First question is: do they cover everything (minus cosmetic)? If they cover everthing, I would not only give them $3K but also offer them an arm (better than losing an arm and a leg in the next 5 years).

For $600 a year with 0 deductible, it's a no thinker!

My last trip to the dealer for my CL55: $6,500!

And how many miles do you have on your SL500 for that quote?

I need to renew my warranty for a '05 S55 with 68K miles, and the dealer offered me a 3 year bumper to bumper with 0 deductible for $8.4K. :eek:

Details

OK. So here are the details. The warranty is sold through my dealer. It is an aftermarket warranty that is an exclusionary warranty (if it's not specially excluded, it's covered) Bumper to Bumper, 60 month / 50,000 miles. $ 0.00 Deductible. Parent Company is Interstate National Dealer Services. Warranty is Interstate Hi-Road Complete. My dealer indicates that they have had good success with these folks and are easy for the dealer to work with. I purchased this for $ 3200.00. Requires a pre-contract inspection at a Mercedes Dealer. Your cost may vary depending upon your car, condition, mileage, etc...

My dealer indicated that she would be willing to discuss the specifics of whether she could offer this to you. There are concerns about out of state, out of area customers and validating the vehicle's condition since it could not be done at her dealership. There may also may be a need for the vehicle to be under a current warranty to be able to cover. (My 04 SL still has 3 months on the CPO warranty and has 27K miles.) You'll need to work those details out with her her yourself.

She can be reached at Mercedes Of El Dorado Hills. Ask for Sara Johnson

Good Luck ! I hope it works out for you !
