vehicle advertised as "certified pre-owned" should tha so called warranty for being a factory certified vehicle be included in advertised price or is it jus a purchased "factory" warranty instead of aftermarket warranty?.. i understand whats done to be "certified" for dealer reasons but jus seems ta me if advertised as such it should be included.. i bought one truck few years back that fell under these conditions and extra $ for extended GM bumper ta bumper were never discussed, even durin' all tha back n forth....???

For Mercedes its the remainder of the factory warranty plus. One year for some, right now I think its two years unlimited mileage for the CPO.

Really good deal if you buy a low mileage car.

A certified vehicle generally extends the factory warranty. Keep in mind though, the factory warranty generally only covers defects. This is where a lot of people get confused. Service contracts, often mistakenly called extended warranty, is an insurance plan against something breaking. You are betting that the $3,000 service contract is going to cost you less than whatever repairs the vehicle will require during the life of said service contract. The service contract company is betting on the opposite. They also don't pay full retail for repairs and they don't pay $140 per flag hour.

Yeah. Cadillac might as well be it's own company with how they compare in many ways. Glad you got it taken care of!
