Worst Expierence
lcr504 Borrower

I had a lease using MB finance. Now, two and half years later, and "auto loan write off" appears on my credit in the amount of $2,000. When i brought the lease vehicle back in to Mercedes, to my understanding everything was complete and i was free to walk away. NOW im fighting to get this removed from my credit because of their mistake.

2013 C300 loan
Anonymous Borrower

Never had any problems.  Never realized others were having these many problems until I accidentally read this webpage. 

I had a loan with MBFS (66 month term; auto pay).  Everything went well and the car is now almost paid off (made few early payments to avoid interest).

Worst finance organization ever
Anonymous Borrower

Be careful when they say they will do automatic payment.  They fail to take it out at the time on the contact and then they fine you!

Also, the local W.C. CA dealership tricked me and said it will be $399/month and then after sitting down with you they add this and that 

until it goes up to nearly $500/month.

No customer service. Lack integrity
Anonymous Borrower

The customer service line is a joke, I called five times in four weeks because they took my payment out twice, and was told a different thing each time. First said they would expedite a refund, then said they would overnight a check-one week later and I had no check, called again and had to start from scratch. Most recently was told it was credited to my next months payment, but I still received a bill and online it says I still owe. Finally called the corporate headquarters and spoke to the Executive Response Team, who says they issued a check over two weeks ago, which I never received. Now say they will stop payment on the check and credit my account, but over 24 hours and it hasn't happened. Not worth it, just finance through your bank. I cannot believe Mercedes would have such shabby customer service. Zero acountability from their customer service line.

I feel so bad for so many that has had problems with MBF. I purchased my car in 2010 and I never had a problem with them. My car is paid off now and looking to repurchase another. I love this brand and by far for me has been the best over the others that I have own. I always paid my loan a week in advance this could have been the reason I never had problems with them.

Low Quality Finance Company
Anonymous Borrower

MBFS is has the worst online and telephone customer service ever. These people are supposed to represent one of the most known luxury Automakers in the world yet they're comparable to the DMV. The online payment and scheduling system is horrible, it's like it was built in 1995 and was never kept up to date. Online Chat customer service is like talking to someone who has never used a computer before. My previous car which I paid off in 2008 through a Credit Union had much better customer service and up to date, easy to use online payment system, and this was 10 years ago!

wont remove a single 30 day late payment
asadana Borrower

I always considered myself as a Mercedes Benz family member, after years of buying Mercedes and always paying my car on time, my most recent payment was late due to unforeseen circumstances. MBFS will not remove the late payment , as a customer I am expected to pay my account on time, as a family member mistakes happen. 

Mercedes acting in this way only causes me to rethink my relationship with them as a creditor and I can guarantee with a sour taste in my mouth from the credit department I will most likely never drive a Mercedes again. It amazes me that as hard as they try to put vehicles on the road, they are so easy to kiss loyal family members goodbye. 

I am counting the days till the end of the contract and will now take my business to a competitors.

Beware!!! Getting ur loan through mbfs. I can't even make a payment for 7 days and now I am late because their "automated" telephone system is complete garbage. I get put on hold for 20/30 minutes and then they just hang up. Funny part is all I'm trying to do is give them money for the loan payment. 1/10 customer service is horrible. And if your lucky the website will only be done 80-90% of the time

Terrible Customer Service
Anonymous Borrower

Had a lease through this company.. Paid every month and there was a glitch in their system which caused a double pay. It went through twice and they wouldn't refund one

leave on my account. It cause me problems

and they offered no solution.
