Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Car Program

Shopping for a used Mercedes-Benz vehicle often leads many drivers to consider certified pre-owned options. Mercedes-Benz is one of many manufacturers that have a certified pre-owned (CPO) program. Each car manufacturer structures their CPO program differently; read on to learn about the specifics of the Mercedes-Benz CPO program.

In order to be considered a Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned car, vehicles must be under five years old, and have less than 75,000 miles. These vehicles come complete with a 12-month, unlimited-mile Certified Limited Warranty.

Inspection

In order to ensure that every Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned car is safe to be driven, each vehicle must pass a 164-point inspection which includes:

  • Engine Compartment Check
  • Engine Component Check
  • Electrical Systems Check
  • Drivetrain Check
  • Body Inspection
  • Road Test
  • Interior and Exterior Appearance Check and Detailing

If anything does not meet the high standards of the Mercedes-Benz technicians, it must be fixed. If it cannot be fixed and meet the proper factory standards, the vehicle cannot become a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz.

Warranty

Mercedes-Benz CPO vehicles come with a warranty, which covers repairs or replacement to any part that becomes defective under normal use within the first 12 months. There is no warranty limit on the number of miles a car can display in order to be covered. The warranty requires no deductible for each service visit.

It also includes additional benefits, such as:

  • 24-hour Roadside Assistance, which includes free jump start services, flat tire changes, and emergency fuel delivery.
  • Trip Interruption Coverage, which reimburses a vehicle owner for expenses up to $300 per day for three days in the event that your vehicle breaks down more than 100 miles from home.

Pricing

Buyers who choose to obtain a vehicle through the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned car program will see a difference in the overall bottom line. The price will usually be around 7.5% higher than a regular “used” Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

For example: at the time of this article in April 2016, a used 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Sedan is priced around $33,707 on Kelley Blue Book; the same vehicle under Mercedes-Benz’s CPO program is priced around $36,262.

Compare Mercedes-Benz to Other CPO Programs

Whether you decide to go with a CPO car, it's always wise to have an independent certified mechanic inspect any used car before buying it. Certified Pre-Owned does not mean the car is in perfect condition, and any used car can come with serious issues that aren't apparent to an untrained eye. If you're in the market to buy a used car, schedule a pre-purchase inspection for total peace of mind.

Diana went above and beyond for my pre-purchase inspection. She obviously knows her stuff, and she was very upfront and honest about everything. Easily the least aggravating car-related experience I've ever had.
Chevrolet Trailblazer - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Avenel, New Jersey
On time. Extremely informative with tons of pictures. And a repair estimate that I can leverage a lower price for my vehicle with. If I do buy...I will certainly book Diana or any YourMechanic tech for the work recommended.
