  • Normal Maintenance Is at Owner's Expense: The expense for cleaning, adjusting, or replacing parts, such as air, oil, and fuel filters, windshield wiper blades, light bulbs, distributor points, or condensers, in the course of normal maintenance is the owner's responsibility. The expense for replacing spark plugs that are oil- or lead-fouled or which fail due to the use of low-grade fuel, improper selection of heat range, or misapplication is the owner's responsibility.

  • Non-Defective Parts: All parts, including parts sold over-the-counter (non-Mercedes-Benz Center installation) are subject to warranty parts testing.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE MERCEDES-BENZ VEHICLE SERVICE PARTS AND ACCESSORIES LIMITED WARRANTY:
  • General: Our intention is to repair under warranty, without charge to you, anything which is our fault that goes wrong with an original Mercedes-Benz service part or accessory that you purchased from and had installed by an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center (Passenger Car or Light Truck, as applicable). All we ask is that you properly maintain and care for the part or accessory and that you have warranty repairs performed by the applicable authorized Mercedes-Benz Center. Please note the difference between "defects" and "damage" as used in the warranty. Defects are covered since we, the distributor, are responsible. Conversely, we have no control over damage caused by such things as, but not limited to, collision, misuse, and lack of maintenance. Therefore, damage for whatever reason is not covered by the warranty.
  • Maintenance Services: These are not covered by the warranty, since it is the owner's responsibility to maintain the vehicle according to the maintenance requirements provided.
  • Customer Repair Order: Your servicing Mercedes-Benz Center will give you a copy of the repair order on all warranty repairs performed. Please keep this copy with your vehicle records.
