Local dealer offered 3 year ELW 75K for $ 3150 . Dealer in Milwaukee ( recommended in this forum ) gave me a price of $ 1950. Both warranties are MB.
Local dealer is $1200 higher ~60%
Should I go back to local dealer and see if they will match the offer. Representative I spoke to was inflexible when I asked if there was any room in their pricing.
BTW I always loved cars and do not trust or like dealers!

You can try, but I bet you get the same answer. There's a reason those vendors are selling them, the local stores aren't coming down on price.

That's the one thing dealers don't to want to dicker on and that's the warranties.....and they won't price match either....puzzling because that's money out of their pockets.

Sounds like the same difference I was told by my Dealer (I think they wanted $2950 and I paid $1850 for the CPO). I told the dealer he said no way and if I could get that price somewhere do it.

I'm trying to figure out the warranty math. I purchased a 2016 (manufacture date 11/15, Delivery date was Jan 2016) through CPO. My service last fall had the warranty expiration as Jan 2020. I thought I was good until 2021. What am I missing? The car has 12k miles.

thought I saw the warranty info on the Mercedes Me site but I'm not finding it.

The factory warranty is 4/50k, with CPO, they just have the factory warranty expiring after 4 years and you get 1 year of CPO unless you want to buy two more years. CPO isn't the same as the factory warranty, cosmetic items like faded wood trim isn't covered under CPO but it is covered under factory so make sure everything is good before that expires.

Thanks.

So my math is correct, I'm good to 2021, under the CPO warranty. I thought I had to extend the CPO warranty when I purchased the vehicle?

You can check with the vendors mentioned in the extended warranty subforum. As others mentioned they're cheaper than the dealer. Not sure when the deadline to buy it is, but I think it's usually before the warranty expires.

That was my understanding as well and I think there were some other constraints.

Thanks!
