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