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.

If your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is stolen or declared a total loss in an accident, there can be a significant difference between the amount your insurance company will cover and the balance owed to Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection helps cover this difference, and with it you may also be reimbursed for the out-of-pocket cost of your insurance deductible, up to $1,000 where allowable by state law.

Consider this scenario:
You purchase a $60,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Seven months later, you get into an accident that totals your car.

$55,000 (Loan payoff)
-$50,000 (Insured amount)
$5,000 (The gap)
+$1,000 (Insurance deductible)
$6,000 (Potential out-of-pocket expense)
 -$6,000 (Covered by First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection)
$0 (Amount you owe)
