The Mercedes-Benz CPO vs the Lexus CPO

Drivers are becoming increasing attracted to the benefits that come with a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle, with the Mercedes-Benz CPO and Lexus CPO in particular drawing in those searching for a luxury model. CPOs essentially unite the benefits of buying new with a lower price and excellent warranty, so it should come as no surprise to learn that both programs are popular.

Of course, you’ll want to know which one comes out on top, and you’ll find Mercedes-Benz are once again way out ahead of the competition.

Multi-Point Inspection

Not just any used Mercedes-Benz vehicle can become part of the CPO program. Each model needs to pass a rigorous 164 multi-point inspection to ensure it lives up to the highest standards. The inspection covers:

  • 11-Point General Inspection: Considers factors like mileage and vehicle history.

  • 13-Point Engine Compartment and Pre-Road Test Check: Oils and other fluids are checked, and the engine, transmission, brake, clutch, and other vital drive systems are inspected.

  • 16-Point Engine Component & System Condition Check: Takes an in-depth look at your engine, from filters to plugs.

  • 32-Point Electrical Systems and Function Test: From heated seats to radio, if it takes a charge, it gets checked.

  • 17-Point Undercarriage/Drive Train: A close look underneath scrutinizes parts like the driveshaft and wheels.

  • 26-Point Chassis/Body: Looks at everything from lamp frames to vanity mirrors.

  • 14-Point Road Test: Instruments are looked at, operations checked, and vibrations noted.

  • 3-Point Post-Road Test: Leaks are checked for, climate control systems inspected, and fluid levels confirmed.

  • 32-Point Appearance Check: Not a single ding or dent is let pass.

The Lexus CPO inspection isn’t as comprehensive, with only 161 points checked. A difference of 3 might not sound significant, but try looking through what the Mercedes-Benz CPO inspection checks, then decide if you’d like anything ignored.

Trip Interruption

Mercedes-Benz CPO models provide Trip Interruption coverage of up to $300 per day for up to three days in the event of a breakdown. That should nicely cover your meals, accommodation, and alternative transport. Lexus make you tighten your belt a little by offering only $200 per day. Trust us, the difference of $100 p/day makes a big difference when you’re choosing hotels.
