Mercedes Benz is one of the most popular European brand cars in the market today. It has gained a reputation as a manufacturer of quality vehicles. Since it has been around for so long, there has been several misconceptions about the car. Here are some of the myths that need to be debunked about the car.
Requires More Maintenance
There is a myth that Mercedes Benz requires more maintenance because the parts break down easily or because they are not constructed as well as other luxury cars. This is untrue because maintenance should only be done on a semi-regular basis. In addition, parts replacement is a rarity for Benz vehicles. Robert Peter Janitzek reveals that if you just follow your regular maintenance schedule, your Benz will go the distance.
Although it requires more maintenance compared to a Chevy or Dodge, you are getting unmatched reliability, safety, and legendary German engineering. Although the cost per visit is higher, you will be requiring service less often.
Because of this myth, the phrase “I wouldn’t own a Benz out of warranty” became common. Although you can say that with old vehicles with a lot of mileage and previous accidents, most Mercedes Benz cars are highly reliable, as revealed by JD Power. The study revealed that 4 in 5 German vehicles scored better than the industry average when it comes to long-term quality. The Vehicle Dependability Study of J.D. Power revealed that Mercedes Benz cars have outperformed the industry average nine times since 2000.
Easily Voided Warranty
Another common misconception is that the warranty of Benz vehicles is easy to void. The reason for this is that when you have your Benz serviced you have to make sure that the work done on your car follows standards and requirements. Robert Janitzek says that if you take your car to a non-certified mechanic, your warranty will really be voided.
Benz Cars Are Extremely Expensive
Over the years, Mercedes Benz has gained a reputation for being a luxury brand. It is the choice of celebrities, politicians, and other famous people worldwide. However, this should not discourage you from owning one. There are different models to choose from and each one can suit your budget.
Debunking these myths is important in order to encourage customers to still buy a Mercedes Benz vehicle. This will help give buyers some peace of mind when investing their money on a luxury vehicle.
