It’s Getting Hot! A Favorite Mercedes-Benz Convenience Feature

Summer Opening / Convenience Closing is a feature that I use frequently when showing vehicles at the dealership as well as in my personal cars. However, I find that a lot of owners don’t realize their Mercedes-Benz has this feature! Simply hold the unlock button to roll the windows down or hold the lock button to roll the windows up! Here is a video from the MBUSA YouTube Channel. Enjoy!

Mercedes-Benz Club of America Visits Atlanta Classic Cars

Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Extended Limited Warranty Program Enhancement

The Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned program allows you to purchase a pre-owned Mercedes-Benz with the confidence that it has been fully inspected and reconditioned to exacting standards. The inspection process covers safety systems, appearance standards, fluids, engine tests, drivetrain, electrical systems and a road test. A Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a limited warranty good for 5 years or 100,000 miles from the original purchase date of the vehicle. For those drivers who intend to keep the car longer there has always been a choice to purchase a 12 or 24 month Extended Limited Warranty, still up to 100,000 miles.

Now, for the first time, Certified Pre-Owned buyers can extend the warranty further…12 months up to 120,000 miles or 24 months up to 135,000 miles! This is an excellent opportunity for higher mile drivers to keep their Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz under warranty! These warranties are also very affordable, starting at just $1595. The pricing is based on the specific model you are purchasing.

Just another reason that a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz is an excellent option!

Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance Enhancements Beginning January 1, 2011!

The Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance Program has always been a wonderful convenience for our owners. Introduced in 1982 to the US market, this program has grown to handle more than 900,000 roadside calls every year! By using Mercedes-Benz vehicles, employees and parts to respond to these calls Mercedes-Benz is providing industry leading quality!

There have always been 3 Sign and Drive services:

  • Flat Tire – put on spare tire or fill flat with TIREFIT
  • Dead Battery- jump start
  • Out of Gas – provide a small quantity of fuel

Additional Roadside Services include:

  • Towing for problems covered under warranty
  • Trip Interruption to defray costs if repairs are needed more than 300 miles from home
  • Trip Routing

These services are complimentary to our owners by dialing 1 800 FOR MERC, or using the mbrace or tele-aid systems.

If you purchased your Mercedes-Benz vehicle before 1/4/11 the program will stay if effect, the same as it has always been, for the current owner.

Under the new program, these services are unchanged during the warranty period. Additionally, towing will be complimentary for all eligible customers both in and out of warranty for both service and collision needs. To accommodate these enhancements Mercedes-Benz has added in eligibility requirements once you are out of the warranty period.

We’ll always be there to help when you need it. If you meet the eligibility requirements, the service will be complimentary. If you don’t, then you can simply pay for the services provided. The goal is to be better able to service all Mercedes-Benz owners for years to come!

Setting the Clock In Your Mercedes-Benz

The time change is this weekend and there are always lots of questions about how to set the clock in your Mercedes-Benz. I have addressed this before in more detail but thought I would update it with pictures! Mercedes-Benz USA has also posted a very good video for setting the clock in vehicles with COMAND.

Once you have that selected you can simply hit the back button to get back to the main screen. As always, I would be happy to set it for you if you are in the neighborhood.
