Do you own a Mercedes-Benz? You may be impacted by the latest Mercedes-Benz fuel tank warranty extension. As of October 2017, the fuel tank warranty on some cars has been upgraded, meaning future related auto repairs could be less expensive. Here’s what you should know about this update.
Which parts and vehicles are impacted?
The new Mercedes-Benz fuel tank warranty upgrade impacts the fuel tank, fuel filter/sender, fuel pump, and related gaskets. Essentially, anything specified under “Covered Fuel Tank Components.” This extension impacts gasoline-fueled, non-PZEV certified Model Year 2003 – 2009 E-Class and 2006 – 2011 C-Class vehicles.
How is the warranty different?
Previously, your fuel tank warranty covered repairs for the first four years or 50,000 miles, whichever came first. With the Mercedes-Benz fuel tank warranty extension, the same parts are covered for 15 years, regardless of miles driven.
Where should repairs be made?
As is always the case, you should have any needed repairs performed by an authorized Mercedes-Benz repair shop. Taking your vehicle to an unauthorized auto shop may void your warranty.
What if I made repairs previously?
Fortunately, there may be an opportunity for reimbursement if you’ve already paid to have any of the “Covered Fuel Tank Components” fixed in the past. Assuming the repairs were relevant to the warranty and that you have the needed documentation, you can request reimbursement through an authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer.
