A Mercedes-Benz is designed and equipped with some of the most advanced engineering and protection features available in today’s automobiles. Now we take protection one step further with Mercedes-Benz Financial Services First-Class Guaranteed Auto Protection. If your vehicle is ever stolen or totaled in an accident, there could be a difference between what your auto insurance carrier covers and what you still owe. That’s where Mercedes-Benz Financial Services First-Class Guaranteed Auto Protection comes into place. Helping to cover this difference. This coverage may also reimburse for the out-of-pocket cost of an insurance deductible up to one thousand dollars. Mercedes-Benz Financial Services First-Class Guaranteed Auto Protection: because when you drive an engineering marvel you know that protection including the financial kind makes very good sense.
