The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program gives Chicago drivers peace of mind, due to its generous warranties, benefits, and Platinum preowned program. So, how does it stack up to competitors’ CPO programs? Compare the Audi vs. BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz CPO programs below!

BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

The Mercedes-Benz CPO program offers exclusive benefits when compared to BMW’s program. For one, while Mercedes-Benz does not require a deductible, a $50 deductible is required for warrantable repairs under BMW’s certified pre-owned program. Additionally, both programs have a maximum limit of mileage and age allowed for potential CPO vehicles. However, BMW requires that their CPO vehicles have been in service for at least 6 months and have more than 6,000 miles; Mercedes-Benz does not have a minimum time or mileage requirement, making it possible for you to get an even newer model with fewer miles on it.

Audi vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

While Mercedes-Benz and Audi both provide 24/7 roadside assistance, a 12-month/unlimited-mile warranty, and no deductible, only Mercedes-Benz offers a 7-day/500-mile Vehicle Exchange Privilege. In fact, numerous other CPO programs, including BMW and Lexus, don’t include this exclusive offer.

Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned

Mercedes-Benz CPO vehicles go through a more extensive inspection than Lexus certified pre-owned vehicles. Mercedes-Benz vehicles go through a 165-point inspection while Lexus vehicles go through a 161-point inspection. Mercedes-Benz also offers other exclusive benefits. For one, the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Warranty is transferable, and Lexus’ warranty is not. What’s more, the Mercedes-Benz program offers a free service loaner. Lexus offers this as well; however, their free service loaner is only available for warrantable repairs that take longer than 8 hours.
