Certification Process

Certified Pre-Owned Benefits

Certification Process

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

General
To begin the inspection, a mileage/history verification is performed and owner’s manuals and spare keys are assembled: 11 Point General Inspection

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: 32 Point Electrical System Inspection

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: 14 Point Road Test Inspection

Engine Compartment and 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: 13 Point Engine Compartment and Pre-Road Test Checks

Undercarriage / Drive Train

We get right underneath the vehicle to scrutinize the steering, suspensions, brakes, wheels, tires, and driveshaft: 17 Point Undercarriage & Drivetrain Inspection

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: 3 Point Post-Road Test Inspection

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: 16 Point Engine Component Inspection

Chassis / Body

From body structure to glass, lamp frames, lenses, seat belts, and vanity mirrors, nothing is left out: 26 Point Chasses and Body Inspection

Appearance

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: 32 Point Appearance Inspection
