How long can a Mercedes-Benz vehicle last?

Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Can Drive Over 1,000,000 Miles

Here at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale, AZ, we know that Mercedes-Benz makes some of the highest quality cars around. And we don’t just mean that they have fancy interiors or powerful engines (though they do have both of those things). No, Mercedes-Benz makes vehicles that are built to last. But for how long?

How long can a Mercedes-Benz vehicle last? A very, very, very long time.



Mercedes-Benz Reliability

Mercedes-Benz vehicles are incredibly reliable. One of the reasons for this are the the Service A and Service B scheduled maintenances that are performed yearly or every 10,000 miles (whichever comes first). Both new and certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz models also come with generous warranties that have the option of 1, 2, and 3-year extensions. But don’t take our word for it. Take a look at these Mercedes-Benz owners.


What’s the difference between Service A and Service B?


Longest Running Mercedes-Benz Vehicles

2,850,000-mileage 1976 Mercedes 240D

The longest running Mercedes-Benz vehicle (and the second longest running vehicle ever) was the 1976 Mercedes-Benz 240D, owned by Gregorios Sachinidis. He put 2,850,000 miles on that 1976 240D before Mercedes-Benz contacted him in 2004, trading him a brand-new C-Class for his piece of history.

Another driver and his family own a 1966 Mercedes-Benz 250SE that topped 1,280,000 miles back 2014. The car was purchased new in 1966 and was kept in the family since then. It has had numerous repairs in that time, but it remains the same car it was back in 1966. Unfortunately, it is unclear how many miles have been put on it since 2014.
