All About Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz Vehicles


You always hear about certified pre-owned vehicles, but just want to does that mean? A Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz really is so much more than just a tradition “used” car. The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Program represents all the virtues you expect from Mercedes-Benz, including exceptional service!  Mercedes-Benz is known for its racing heritage, it’s commitment to luxury, quality, safety, and reliability, and its engineering triumphs.

To qualify to be a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz, the vehicle must meet stringent criteria, as well as pass a rigorous inspection that includes:


  • 11 Point Engine Compartment Inspection
  • 17 Point Engine Component Inspection
  • 33 Point Appearance Inspection
  • 33 Point Electrical System Inspection
  • 3 Point Post-Road Test Inspection
  • 25 Point Chassis and Body Inspection
  • 14 Point Road Test Inspection
  • 15 Point Undercarriage & Drivetrain Inspection
  • 11 Point General Inspection


Every Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz comes with peace of mind due to comprehensive limited warranties that are available. For starters, any remaining portion of the Mercedes-Benz four-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty applies to the vehicle. Following that, for vehicles purchased on or after January 15, 2015, MBCPO offers our standard 1-year Limited Warranty that provides comprehensive vehicle coverage for unlimited miles, as well as our available 1 and 2 year Extended Limited Warranty with unlimited mileage.

For those who purchase a Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you’ll also be able to reap the benefits of nationwide customer service and tech support. You are a quick phone call away from 24-hour Roadside Assistance. There’s also Sign and Drive service which gives drivers a free jump-start, flat-tire change with your existing spare, or some fuel for an empty tank. Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz vehicles also include Trip Interruption and trip routing, product and technical information, or anything else related to your Mercedes-Benz.

Not sure about purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz? Every one sold at Mercedes-Benz of Tampa has a seven-day/500 mile Exchange Privilege. If you aren’t satisfied with your vehicle for any reason, return within seven days/500 miles (whichever comes first), and we will exchange it with another Certified Pre-Owned vehicle of equal or greater value (of course, the buyer will need to pay the difference).
