    MB Extended warranties - to buy or not to buy?

    I've read a couple of threads that make mention of such warranties but my used approved warranty is almost done and as you'd expect, MB have contacted me with my options.

    Comand or After Market and MB Warranties

    Aftermarket warranties

    Are any of these aftermarket warranties any good? I have heard some horror stories about some, but surely some of them are sensible or am I in dream land? Any experiences (good ones I mean)?

    Better Mercedes Warranties?

    Better Mercedes Warranties? How long will it be before Mercedes respond to the growing number of car-makers who are offering longer guarantees? Kia offered the 7 year warranty to set the cat amongst the pigeons. And it is transferable on sale of the car. Toyota followed recently with a 5...

    Warranties - Are they worth it - Advice

    Hi As I am looking to buy a Sept 2004 E270 CDI with 83K on the clock, I was wondering whether or not you experts think it would be worth banging a warranty on it. It comes with 28 days Engine & Gearbox warranty and that is it. If I do take the plunge it has to be with a company who will...

    Current rust warranties

    I'm looking to change my present E320cdi Estate convertible (converting to iron oxide!) for something newer.
