Service Credits

25 posts in this topic

Hi bros,

 

A friend bought a used Mercedes and the car is still within the warranty period. When he sent the car to C&C for servicing, he was told that he could not use the service credits left over by the previous owner for the payment of the servicing job. Is it true that service credits are not transferrable and what happened to the service credits left over by the previous owner for the car?

 

Regards.

Yes. Service credits are tagged to individual. Non-transferrable.

So it is definitely not worth buying a used car even if it is within the warranty period.

Warranty is warranty it cover non wear and tear parts

 

Service credit is to offset your wear and tear plus labour

 

This 2 are different

 

 

 

 

Take for example you go buy a phone from a shop.

They give you $50 voucher and 3 years warranty.
 

The warranty covers factory defect.

 

Lets say you drop your phone and the screen crack does the warranty cover it? No

 

So you can use the voucher to offset your repair cost

 

But if the phone the speaker is not working after few months does it cover the repair? Yes.
 

So it is definitely not worth buying a used car even if it is within the warranty period.

Why is it not worth buying just because it doesn't come with service credits? Service credits is an incentive given by C&C for the first owner. It has nothing to do with the warranty. Some first owners don't want the service credits and ask their SE to offset the amount offered into the purchase price of the car, it also doesn't mean the first owner is obligated to sell the car at a lower price.

If it's due to warranty issue then yes, you can request for a courtesy car. However, there is a waiting list of about 2-3 months. If you can wait, tell your SA that it's not urgent. If not then no choice, you gotta find your own mode of transport.

 

Did your SA tell you what caused the mentioned fault? Faulty sensor or? The warning is due to the traction level that the sensor is sensing. A few of us do experience this warning from time to time and the way we "fix" it is to pump up the tyre pressure. Problem solved. However there was also one case of faulty sensor, the warning came out every other day.

So if buy a used Merc, can still go C&C and servicing but use previous owner name? 

Just said you are the driver helping to send in the car for servicing Lor ? Or they need physical IC verification.

The service credit is not transferrable. Hence you can't use the the service credit of the previous owner. I think the system will be able to reflect that you are the new owner?

You can get C&C to update their system if you're the new owner as the Onemotoring log card will prove your ownership.
