There are plenty of compelling reasons buyers choose to go with a certified pre-owned vehicle as opposed to a new one. After all, the cost savings can be significant, and the warranties often offer the same peace of mind a new vehicle provides. But while COP sales are up overall, strong grown means that Mercedes-Benz is outpacing its competitors in the red-hot luxury segment.
According to our friends at Automotive News, in the first half of 2019, the ionic German brand saw its CPO sales jump by 3.6 percent, meaning over 64,000 buyers took home a certified pre-owned Mercedes so far this year. That’s against an industry average that’s up 1.2 percent, and a good enough showing to rank it number seven on the publication’s 2019 top ten certified pre-owned vehicle by volume list. It’s the highest spot for a luxury player, and far ahead of the 58,000 units that BMW moved, or the 48,000 that Lexus sold.
So if you’ve been looking for a way to get into a modern Mercedes at an affordable price, it might pay to look into a certified pre-owned vehicle. Along with benefits like 24-hour roadside assistance, support at dealers coast to coast, and a seven day/500 mile vehicle exchange program, there’s also a compelling unlimited mileage warranty component. Here are some of the details, straight from the the official Mercedes-Benz USA site:
Every Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz is covered by any remaining portion of the Mercedes-Benz four-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Then, the CPO Limited Warranty provides comprehensive coverage for another 12 months with unlimited miles. This means up to 5 years of unlimited mileage coverage, extending to the engine and powertrain, steering, suspension, brakes (excluding wear of discs and pads), electrical system, climate control system, and more.
