Mercedes-Benz Eliminates Mileage Limits for Warranties on Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

2016-10-31T12:10:41+00:00October 31st, 2016|Certified Pre-Owned, Maintenance, Warranties|

Get the most out of your certified pre-owned vehicle at Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara with their new unlimited mileage warranties.

Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara is now offering drivers of certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles unlimited mileage warranties. Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara doesn’t think drivers “should be punished for putting miles on [their] vehicle, but rather rewarded for taking full advantage of the luxury, performance, and style offered by a Mercedes-Benz pre-owned vehicle”. After revolutionizing the auto-industry with innovative automobiles, Mercedes-Benz decided it was time to revolutionize the warranty aspect of buying a vehicle as well. The unlimited mileage warranty program allows Mercedes-Benz drivers the confidence of knowing that if anything were to happen to within the time restraints of the warranty, they are covered regardless of miles.

How Do Unlimited Mileage Warranties Work?

Mercedes-Benz knows how frustrating it can be to feel forced to watch your mile count while trying to get the most out of your warranty program. To solve this problem, Mercedes-Benz eliminated mileage limits on all Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle warranties. The standard warranty offered on Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicles is the Base Limited Warranty which lasts for one year regardless of miles—in addition to any time remaining on the initial owner’s 4 year/50,000-mile warranty that comes standard on any new vehicle purchase. Once the one-year base term runs out on any Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle, the driver has the option to take advantage of the Extended Warranty Program. Depending on the needs of the driver, this program extends the warranty for either one or two more years. The extended warranty is an incredible value at an affordable price.

What is Covered Under Warranty?

  • Engine and Drivetrain
  • Convertible/Retractable Top Systems
  • Central-Locking System
  • Steering, Suspension, and Brakes
  • Electrical System
  • Audio and Navigation Systems
  • Climate-Control System
  • Other Components and Further Details

Your Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle warranty begins the minute the previous warranty ends—or if that warranty has already ended, then it begins upon the date of purchase. There is no deductible and your warranty can be redeemed at any of the 300 certified Mercedes-Benz dealerships across the country. There’s no need to ration your miles anymore. Visit Mercedes-Benz Santa Barbara and pick out a Mercedes-Benz certified pre-owned vehicle with an unlimited mileage warranty so you can drive with confidence.

The SUV has been reborn as the GLE and offers a premium driving experience thanks to its hallmark athleticism, sleek exterior, and inviting luxury cabin. For families or groups of friends who are on the go, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class offers exceptional space and comfort. It features generous seating for five adults and plenty of cargo space.

Mercedes-Benz Pioneers Autonomous Driving Technologies with Latest Luxury Models

2015-07-09T15:12:38+00:00April 7th, 2015|Mercedes Benz|

Santa Barbara Auto Group explores the latest autonomous driving technology from Mercedes-Benz that is making sci-fi fantasies closer to reality than ever before.

744px-Mercedes-Benz-Logo_svgIt seems that every new sci-fi movie to hit the big screen in recent years features some kind of futuristic vehicle. These vehicles may vary in many ways – some fly, others hover, most provide intuitive touch screen devices for downloading documents, accessing networks or other information, and a few vehicles even offer the ability to move seamlessly between air, land, and water. However, one thing that most have in common is some kind of auto-pilot or autonomous driving capability. The exciting news is that cars that drive themselves have recently transitioned from fantasy to reality. Mercedes-Benz has been championing autonomous driving functions in recent years and has now released many new innovative driving systems that leave drivers feeling like they have stepped into the future.

Autonomous Braking and Parking

For the last few years, Mercedes-Benz vehicles have been able to detect road hazards or dangerous situations thanks to improved camera and sensor technology woven into vehicle design. Blind-spot Assist, Attention Assist, and other driving systems work to prevent an emergency situation before it ever occurs. Now, thanks to technology such as DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot semiautonomous traffic jam vehicle following function select Mercedes-Benz models are already capable of driving and braking autonomously on the road. Furthermore, Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC enables drivers to sit back and relax while their vehicle parks itself in both parallel and end-on spaces.

Autonomous Driving

What is really exciting is that fully autonomous driving capabilities are already being tested by Mercedes-Benz. The Mercedes-Benz S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE was recently tested in a 100-kilometer trip across Europe from Mannheim to Pforzheim. The journey was successful and the technology is on its way to becoming accessible in new Mercedes-Benz models. The brand is working on making the systems function even in complex urban traffic situations as well as rural highways. Like everything else Mercedes-Benz releases, drivers can expect the technology to be rigorously tested and reviewed before being released so they can be sure the technology works flawlessly and intuitively.

For example, testing is processed in both European and USA regions to account for differences in transportation infrastructures and driving behaviors which may vary by region or location. In fact, in September of last year, Mercedes-Benz was awarded on of the first licenses by the State of California to test self-driving vehicles on public roads.

So next time you leave the theater fantasizing about the future of transportation, consider how close we already are to many capabilities that seemed so radical only years ago! To learn more about the latest technology from Mercedes-Benz, visit Santa Barbara Auto Group.

Mercedes Benz CLA-class – Super Bowl introduction

2016-01-29T02:19:07+00:00February 4th, 2013|Mercedes Benz, Other News|

Mercedes Benz stole the show from Super Bowl XLVII this weekend, introducing the world to their newest line of sedan.

The 2014 CLA-class, an entry-level sports sedan. will become available in September of this year at just under $30,000. Production specifics are still in the works but 4-cylinder turbocharged, BlueTec diesel and enhanced AMG options will be available when the vehicle hits showrooms.

The commercial lived up to both Mercedes-Benz and Super Bowl commercial standards and featured celebrities Usher, Kate Upton and Willem Defoe. A shorter preview of the ad featuring Kate Upton washing the car built up excitement before the big game. Interestingly, the ad was not only entertaining; it was effective. According to Edmunds.com, internet traffic for the CLA-class jumped 3,000 percent after the ad was played.
