If the exact Mercedes-Benz model you want is slightly out of your price range, or if you’re simply a thrifty spender, buying a CPO or Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz is likely a better option than you might assume. Here are 9 great benefits of buying a certified used Mercedes-Benz:
1. The 32-point appearance inspection guarantees your CPO Mercedes-Benz is as scratch-, ding-, dent- and scuff-free as possible. From a deep interior cleaning and waxed exterior to the touch-up of scuffs and scratches and the replacement of trim, moldings and mats, this inspection covers it all.
2. Extensive engine checks start with basic fluid and oil changes and inspections whenever required. Then, a thorough engine component and system condition check verifies that all plugs, filters, engine mounts and belts are operating at maximum performance.
3. The road test follows the extensive parts certification process. Inspectors check for optimal engine performance, accurate reporting from all instruments, and minimal drivetrain/wheel vibration. If any of these checks fail, the problem area is immediately addressed before the Mercedes-Benz is added to our inventory of certified used cars for sale in Columbus.
4. CPO comes matched with an unlimited mileage warranty. It may surprise you to find that the odometer has no bearing on Mercedes-Benz CPO warranties. Regardless of how much the previous owner drove the car and how much further you take it, you’ll receive one year of full warranty coverage. As your local Mercedes-Benz dealer in Columbus, we also provide customers with the option of a two-year extension with this industry-leading coverage.
