Mercedes provides a four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty on the S400 Hybrid. There is no separate powertrain warranty. Most hybrid vehicles carry an additional warranty, covering only the hybrid components of the drivetrain. Lexus, for instance, warrants the hybrid components of the LS 600h for eight years or 100,000 miles. Mercedes, however, does not provide separate hybrid component coverage.
Returning Mercedes buyers may remember that the company included regularly-scheduled maintenance in the purchase price of its cars for many years. That is no longer the case, but buyers can choose to pre-pay scheduled maintenance, or to extend the factory warranty for as long as 84 months for an additional fee.
- "To give you an idea how pampered this battery is, when we asked how long it'll endure before replacement, Mercedes' engineers responded, ‘It'll last as long as the car itself.’” -- Motor Trend
