BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz: Warranty and Benefits

Whether you choose a BMW or Mercedes-Benz for Shelbyville, you’ll want some protection for your new investment. Luckily, both offer a basic warranty of 4 years and 50,000 miles.

And if you opt for a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz, you’ll enjoy the freedom of a 7-day/500-mile Exchange Privilege – which BMW does not offer at all.
