Warranty on Mercedes Used Cars in the UK
Buying a used Mercedes Benz is a great way to beat the depreciation but what if something goes wrong? Extended warranty on Mercedes cars that are over the three year mark is recommended due to the fact the technology in the cars today are extremely complex.
With complexity comes great repair costs that you will be liable for without having warranty cover. Of course, you don’t have to have warranty policies and you can risk running your car warranty-free and fix things yourself as and when. We have compiled some example repair bills that Mercedes owners will have to fork out below.

Should You Bother with Mercedes Warranty?
So this will be the main question that is asked, should you spend a load of money for warranty on a car? There are two arguments and starting with the reason not to is pretty obvious. If the Mercedes in question is worth less than the warranty cover, then warranty would not be worth it because you can just keep the car as spares and repair or just sell it. If the Mercedes has had all the main parts to go wrong already changed and the service history is very strong, its a gamble but I wouldn’t probably pay for warranty, however you will be paying a higher premium for a Mercedes like this.
On the flip side, Mercedes warranty for your new car is vital to ensure your bank account is not at risk. A repair bill for any Mercedes that is less than 10 years old can be expensive, even if that repair is from an independent garage. You will have peace of mind that everything will be covered and you can drive your Mercedes knowing that all unexpected problems will be repair under Mercedes warranty.
