Mercedes-Benz has launched extended warranty packages spanning up to 6 years in India. The luxury car maker has collaborated with Daimler Financial Services India and Reliance General Insurance and launched the extended warranties packages called Advanced Assurance Program.
Before this offer, Mercedes-Benz owners were offered warranties of up to 4 years. Currently, Mercedes cars come with a standard 3-year warranty (2-year standard + 1-year STAR CARE). Under the new Advanced Assurance Program, Mercedes-Benz India will offer warranty benefits after the completion of this 3-year standard warranty.
The company is offering three packages: 4th year, 4th and 5th year, and 4th, 5th and 6th year. Owners can buy this extended warranty any time before the completion of the standard 3-year warranty.
Also, customers can also exit the extended warranty package after enrolling, given that the standard warranty period hasn't elapsed.
The aforementioned extended warranty packages are not restricted by the number of kilometres a car has been driven and thus grant unlimited mileage.
Additionally, in case the car is being sold, these packages can be transferred to subsequent owners. Mercedes is offering the extended warranty packages exclusively to non-commercial customers.
Interested customers can visit Mercedes-Benz India's official website to obtain a quote of the Advanced Assurance Program for their vehicles by using an online calculator.
