While many luxury brands offer an array of benefits for their CPO programs, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned program offers additional benefits that competitors don’t offer. To make things easier on Sun City and Menifee drivers, here we compare certified pre-owned programs of competitors, like Lexus, Audi, and BMW, to the Mercedes-Benz CPO program.

Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

Mercedes-Benz and Audi offer many similar benefits, including 24/7 roadside assistance, no deductible, and a 12 month/unlimited mile warranty. However, unlike Audi, Mercedes-Benz has a 7-day/500-mile Vehicle Exchange Privilege. Audi isn’t the only competitor that doesn’t offer this Mercedes-Benz-exclusive privilege; other CPO programs, like those of Lexus and BMW, don’t offer the Vehicle Exchange Privilege either.

BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

The Mercedes-Benz CPO program outshines BMW’s CPO program in a few ways. First, BMW requires a $50 deductible, while Mercedes-Benz does not. Furthermore, a BMW certified pre-owned vehicle must have a minimum of 6,000 miles and must have been in service for at least 6 months. Mercedes-Benz does not have a minimum amount of time in service or number of miles required for their certified pre-owned vehicles.

Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

Prospective Mercedes-Benz CPO vehicles must go through a 165-point inspection, while Lexus CPO vehicles undergo a 161-point inspection. The more thorough inspection for Mercedes-Benz vehicles ensures drivers are getting a high-quality vehicle in excellent condition. Not only is the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned program more discerning, but it offers greater benefits as well. Mercedes-Benz offers a free service loaner, while Lexus only offers a free service loaner for warrantable repairs that take longer than 8 hours. What’s more, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Warranty is transferable, while the Lexus CPO warranty is not.
