Mercedes Approved Used Car Scheme

Every manufacturer has a used approved scheme to tempt buyers, but what do they all offer and how do they compare? We'll show you in this handy guide...

Mercedes badge

Any car bought through the Mercedes scheme gets a 12-month, unlimited-mileage warranty, one year’s UK and European roadside assistance, a multi-point mechanical check and full vehicle preparation, a full service history guarantee, MOT cover and a 30-day or 1000-mile exchange policy. What’s more, the scheme, in theory, covers used cars of any age and with no mileage limits, making it very attractive.
