Eligibility Criteria

For a vehicle to earn the designation of being a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz it can be no older than six years from the original manufacturing date, and have less than 75,000 miles on the odometer.

A Thorough Inspection Process

Each and every prospective Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz must go through a rigorous inspection and certification, which covers over 160 points, from the engine, to electrical systems, chassis, appearance on the interior and exterior, and a road test before it is signed off to be available in showrooms like ours serving San Diego.

Extended Limited Warranty

The Certified Pre-Owned vehicles in our showroom each offer additional, affordable coverage which starts when the vehicle’s standard warranty ends. You will be covered by the Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty, which is for one year and unlimited miles. You can add more coverage with a one- or two-year Extended Limited Warranty Program, as well.

24-Hour Roadside Assistance

When you choose a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz, you also are able to get 24-Hour Roadside Assistance for the life of your warranty. This means if you need a tire change, jump start, some gas, or towing to the nearest Mercedes-Benz service center, it’s just a phone call away.


To qualify for Pre-Owned Certification, a Mercedes-Benz vehicle must meet stringent criteria and pass a rigorous inspection.


To begin the inspection, a mileage/history verification is performed and owner’s manuals and spare keys are assembled.

Engine Compartment & Pre-Road Test Checks
Mercedes-Benz engines undergo all oil and fluid inspections to ensure unmatched performance. Engine, transmission, and rear-axle oil, brake, clutch, and level-control fluid, among others are carefully examined.

Engine Component & System Condition check
We perform a thorough condition check verification of your engine from filters and plugs to engine mounts and V-belts.

Electrical Systems and Function Test
Everything on the vehicle that takes a charge, from the headlamps, fuses, and radio to the heated seats, front seat-belt presenters, and rear-window sunshade, gets checked and approved.

Undercarriage / Drive Train
We get right underneath the vehicle to scrutinize the steering, suspensions, brakes, wheels, tires, and driveshaft.

Chassis / Body
From body structure to glass, lamp frames, lenses, seat belts, and vanity mirrors, nothing is left out.

Road Test
The road test is conducted firsthand from the driver’s seat: instruments, vibration and noise, shift lock operations, and more are all checked.

Post-Road Test
After our test drive, we check for leaks, verify the proper fluid levels, and complete the inspection of the climate control begun during road testing.

A Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a clean-skinned beauty, as free as dings, dents, rips, scratches, and scuffs as we can make it, with high quality fit and finish, inside and out.
