2014 GWV Legend 3500 I4
No. The reason you are not seeing them is because these (very frequent) failures are still covered by the federally-mandidated emissions warranty for most of the vans with the new, problematic emissions systems. Just wait...I have not seen a post where the extended warranty denied an emissions claim. Maybe I'm not looking that hard, though?
That's just the trouble, the MB extended warranty is NOT "essentially a CPO". Far from it. The list of covered items is extremely limited. The salespersons sell these warranties as if they were extensions of the 3/36 warranty. Not even close.So, if the engine-only warranty on MB is 5yr/100K miles, but the driveline, trans, and everything else ends at 3yr/36k mile, then I fail to see how a $4k factory-backed warranty that is essentially a CPO taking the vehicle out to 7yr/175K mile is not a good deal.
I had every intention of buying the extended warranty, until I actually read what I would have been buying. The verbal assurance of your salesperson is worth exactly the paper it is written on. It doesn't matter how good your dealer is--they don't decide warranty claims--MB does.
