I am close to purchasing a 2000 E320 wagon with 59,000km (~36,000
miles) from a MB dealer in Montreal.
For 10% more than the purchase price (or $2,800 CAD / $2240 US) they
are offering a 3- year MB Extended Warranty good at any MB Dealer at
least in Canada and apparently in the US as well.
Years 1 and 2 are "bumper to bumper". Year 3 is for "major components"
Can anyone advise me as to whether this would be worthwhile or tell me
what the catch might be? (I am a new MB owner and am not a car guy at
I presume that one "catch" is that for all routine maintenance (tires,
brakes, oil, etc.) excluded from the warrranty I have to have it done
at a MB Dealer, which would be more expensive than an independent
