What does “remanufactured” mean for Mercedes-Benz?
Remanufacturing of automotive parts begins with an inoperative, failed or worn out part called a “core.” This core is disassembled so that the subsystems and components can be cleaned, tested, repaired/reworked or replaced. The components are then brought back to “like new” specification, reassembled and tested to a quality level so high that every Genuine Remanufactured Part is backed by the very same warranty as new parts.
The other ways a part gets “remanufactured” by aftermarket sellers:
The differences in terms of how a part is brought back to working condition are often subtle, but important as they frequently carry different or shorter warranties.
- Repaired: usually refers to a part that is simply made operational again
- Recycled: typically refers to a salvaged/used part
- Restored/Reconditioned: refers to older parts, typically parts that are “freshened”
- Rebuilt: refers to a simple replacement of only those components that may be broken or unusable, without a complete disassembly and inspection
Benefits of Remanufactured Parts
Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts set the standards for quality and reliability – standards that maintain the value and performance of the vehicle – something that other aftermarket parts may not be able to match.
All Mercedes-Benz Genuine Remanufactured Parts supplied by Mercedes-Benz dealerships are kept in stock and are available either on demand or short notice.
Our remanufactured parts include powertrain, mechanical parts, and electronics – all parts available through the dealer network and designed specifically for the vehicle.
Our remanufactured parts are less expensive than our new parts, and sustain a remanufacturing cycle in the long term. Returning core parts to your dealership saves on the cost of disposal, and can lower the costs of driver ownership.
Our remanufactured parts offer the same warranty coverage that applies to new Genuine Mercedes-Benz Parts. Note: Engine Limited Warranty Coverage is 48 months or 50,000 miles (36 months or 36,000 miles for Sprinter vehicles) and transmissions are 24 months or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Using our remanufactured parts can reduce environmental impact by reusing materials that require less energy for production. Total typical benefits can range up to 80 percent in material consumption and 90 percent in energy costs.
