Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz: Warranty Coverage

As with any vehicle purchase, a luxury brand car with excellent warranty coverage can help you to drive with confidence in Columbus. Mercedes-Benz and Lexus offer identical basic new vehicle warranties: coverage for defects in material or workmanship for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, there are a couple differences to keep in mind when you consider other coverage options:

Mercedes-Benz Warranty Coverage

  • Basic Warranty – 48 months / 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain Warranty – 48 months / 50,000 miles
  • Plug-in Hybrid Battery Warranty – 6 years / 62,000 miles
  • Plug-in Hybrid Battery Warranty – 10 years or 150,000 miles (California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont)

  • Powertrain Warranty – 72 months / 70,000 miles
  • Hybrid Warranty – 8 years / 100,000 miles
  • Corrosion Perforation Warranty –  72 months, regardless of mileage

Looking for a longer coverage term for your new vehicle, or purchasing a certified pre-owned model? The Mercedes-Benz warranty can be extended with 1, 2 or 3 years of additional coverage beyond the standard New Vehicle Limited Warranty. All repairs are performed by factory-trained technicians, at an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer like Kempthorn Auto Campus Mercedes-Benz — and you can rest assured that all replacement parts and repairs involve only genuine OEM parts.
