Mercedes-Benz SUVs bearing the BlueTEC® badge will soon be available in all 50 states, making it the latest landmark in a long history of diesel excellence. Mercedes-Benz introduced the diesel engine more than 100 years ago, and is the only automaker to continually offer diesel options. Now, with the introduction of BlueTEC®, you can feel even better about driving the finest and most exciting diesel-powered vehicle in the world. BlueTEC® represents a unique opportunity to have it all: fuel economy, performance, luxury and an environmentally responsible alternative. BlueTEC® maintains the power and efficiency of diesel technology, while cleansing the exhaust to create the world's cleanest diesel engines.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class demonstrates its uncompromising performance, safety, and luxury by recently receiving the J.D. Power and Associates 2008 IQS award for "Highest Ranked Midsize Premium Car in a Tie."
Mercedes-Benz originated this landmark system. and is still the only manufacturer to offer it standard. If the system sensors detect vehicle movements that indicate an accident is possible, PRE-SAFE® acts decisively to protect the vehicle's occupants. Electronic tensioners tighten the seat belts of the front-seat occupants. PRE-SAFE® adjusts the occupied front passenger's seat to a more favorable position for air-bag and seat-belt effectiveness. In the event of severe skidding which indicates a rollover is likely, PRE-SAFE® will close the sunroof (if equipped) and side windows.

Mercedes-Benz vehicles are known for their luxurious features and impressive styling. So, it is not surprising that Mercedes-Benz drivers want to keep their vehicles looking like they did when they drove off the lot.
That is why in December of 2008, Mercedes-Benz Financial was pleased to announce the latest addition to the suite of First Class products- the First Class Appearance Package. Currently available in 40 states, Mercedes-Benz Financial expects the package to be available in most states by the end of June.

-First Class Windshield Replacement: Includes costs associated with the replacement of front windshields due to road hazard damage (maximum total benefit $5000).
