Has anyone purchased the Extended Warranty from Mercedes Benz?
I am just about at 50K miles. I was quoted $5100 for the 3 additional years and up to 100K miles. What are others paying? Was it worth it?

I just had major transmission issues (the dealer tells me that that would be covered even if I did not purchase the extended warranty because it is an "on going issue". They also just replaced my entire Command so that is new. I am just wondering if it is worth it to buy it vs. what I would pay over the next 3 years in repairs.

Thanks!

Depends on what the warranty covers. From personal experience I purchased an extended through a third party warranty company on my CLK430 which I bought new in 2001. The last month of the manufacturers remainder of the warranty was left and I knew I'd keep the car as it only had about 18K on the odometer (4 years old). The extended at the time was only about 1800 dollars. I still own the car and the company has paid every claim including a recent claim of nearly 2100 for a climate control unit and blower regulator motor. I also had ball joints, drag link, mass air meter, gauge cluster and other bits replaced. The warranty extended my coverage for an additional 6 years up to 100K which I'll never reach - the car only has 44K. My dealer said they were impressed with the warranty and they never had a problem getting a claim covered and paid. The MB dealer calls in the claim and they pay immediately with a credit card to the dealer.

I have a 20 dollar deductable and it covers EVERYTHING except wear and tear - like brakes, tires, shocks (unless leaking defective). Covers radio and all electronics. I would have paid thousands out of pocket and I still have over a year left on the the coverage. Coverage is through AutoWarranty Broker. There is another that is also good called WarrantyDirect. I think they will even cover wear and tear items. Don't know if they will cover the command unit or it may be an option.

Shop around there are a few good companies out there. I purchased a GL550 in January and will start getting quotes soon. I think the earlier you sign up they give you a discount on the premium. When I bought the GL I got a quote and it was in the high 4K range.

I was only considering the MB extended coverage. I decided to keep my money and "self insure"

I would also appreciate any information members have concerning extended warranties. I have had so many things go wrong with my '07 GL450, I think I need to purchase one.

I was doing a lot of research on this topic. I compared MB with many other 3rd party. I ended up going with Mercury Platinum. I got 6 yr 100k including extra electronic package that covers navi/dvd for 3k with no deductible. I would say most important thing is to read the contract of all of them very carefully. I got it from my local crdit union since Mercury doesn't sell direct. I can get you info if you want to contact for quote.

Just don't get Autosource. They'll use every fine print caveat in the contract to avoid paying claims. I lost $2000 to these scammers.
