The certification process starts with an 11-point general inspection which includes mileage/vehicle history verification. Next, we will gather your vehicle's spare keys as well as the owner's manuals. We then will conduct a 13-point engine compartment and pre-road test check, which includes checking rear-axle oil, brake, clutch, engine, transmission, and level-control fluids. The 16-point engine component inspection is comprised of an analysis of your V-belts, filters, plugs, engine mounts, and much more. The headlamps, fuses, heated seats, rear-window sunshade, and every other electronic component of your vehicle is examined during the 32-point electrical system check. A 26-point chassis and body inspection of features like your vanity mirrors and seat belts is included as well, plus a 17-point examination of the undercarriage and drivetrain. Your certified pre-owned in Lake Bluff also has to pass a 14-point road test and a 32-point appearance inspection.

The available sign and drive service includes a flat-tire switch with your spare, fuel for your empty tank as well as a free jump-start. Trip routing, product information, trip interruption and technical information are all available. Your certified pre-owned is backed by more than 300 authorized Mercedes-Benz Dealers across the country.
