Mercedes-Benz Launches Replacement Parts Line
August 22, 2018—Mercedes-Benz recently launched StarParts, an all-new replacement parts line manufactured and designed by the company for vehicles five years and older.
Built for high functionality and fit accuracy, StarParts is an alternative to other aftermarket options and meets all of the strict Mercedes-Benz quality and safety requirements that far exceed standard legal guidelines. All StarParts replacement products come with a one-year warranty, including parts and labor, and are priced below corresponding Genuine Mercedes-Benz Parts MSRP.
When faced with older Mercedes-Benz models in need of service, local auto parts chains often offer alternative lines of common service parts at reduced prices, even though these parts may not match the performance of Mercedes-Benz original equipment parts.
“There’s no denying the high quality, precise fit and value of Genuine Mercedes-Benz replacement parts. However, with StarParts, dealerships and independent repair shops will no longer find themselves in a competitive dilemma when sourcing common replacement parts for our older models,” said Christian Treiber, vice president of customer service at Mercedes-Benz USA. “Shop owners can now provide their customers with quality options designed and guaranteed by Mercedes-Benz and offered at a friendly price, enhancing margins and ultimately helping to grow shop profits.”
As Mercedes-Benz models get older, StarParts helps owners, dealerships and independent repair shops save on costs by offering parts that are created using new production techniques, alternative manufacturing materials and targeted standardized variants, all without sacrificing quality and fit.
StarParts currently features a range of everyday maintenance items geared towards high-volume Mercedes-Benz automotive series, including:
- C-Class (W/S203 and W204)
- SLK (R17)
- E-Class (W/S211)
- CLS (C219)
- ML (W164)
- GL (X164)
- GLK (X204)
- R-Class (W251)
StarParts can be ordered through any local Mercedes-Benz dealership or independent repair shop. The line offers common service parts including brake pads, rotors, cabin filters, spark plugs, wiper blades and more.
