Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code. ‘ It is a document issued by the Land Transport Authority that certifies that a car has passed all regulatory tests, inspections and is ready for registration to be used on Singapore’s roads. In the Parallel Importer industry, this code gives peace of mind to buyers as it ensures that the exact vehicle that buyers are purchasing has already undergone testing for approval.
This also means that the vehicle is physically available and ready in Singapore for delivery. All that’s left is to register the COE, and it can be immediately used on the roads.
When you purchase from any parallel importer in Singapore, it’s important you check that they have VAC-Ready stock, so it cuts down on any waiting time or uncertainty.
Some parallel importers in the past, unfortunately, have been unable to deliver vehicles, or in worst-case scenarios, shut down and walked away with customer deposits.
We register and deliver well over a hundred new vehicles every month and have had a 100% delivery rate for the past 30 years since 1989.
What does ‘Parallel Import’ Mean?
Parallel imported cars are vehicles shipped straight from their brand’s origin country and then sold in other countries. Parallel Importers, also known as PIs, are alternate retailers and dealers of various brands of vehicles. Often Parallel Importers carry a wide selection of brands and models.
In terms of operations, there’s little difference between a parallel importer and an authorized distributor. Both entities import cars from the same countries or from where the manufacturer is located.
Vehicles from authorized distributors tend to cost more as they carry a higher overhead than parallel importers – these overheads include fancy showrooms, a much larger payroll, advertising and media costs, and more.
The cars themselves typically don’t differ in terms of specifications and options. Here at VINCAR, we offer vehicles directly from their origin countries at competitive prices while passing on significant customer savings. We can also provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while making sure we can provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach to the type and brand of vehicle you wish to own under one brand experience.
Over 30% of new car purchases at VINCAR every year are existing customers looking to upgrade or replace their vehicles, and we are happy to provide a hassle-free seamless experience every time.
What Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class Models do you carry?
Models not listed here may not be readily available and will require some time to be brought into the country (30-45 days). If you are keen on a vehicle that’s not listed here, just ask us – and we’ll do our best glad to make it happen.
Can you bring in a car if it’s not listed in your Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class Collection?
Just ask us, and we’ll do our best to see if you can import the vehicle of your preference.
We import hundreds of vehicles every month and are familiar with all customs regulations, documentation, approvals, logistics, restrictions, and registration procedures.
When can I expect to receive my car when I order it?
The fastest we have ever registered and delivered a new vehicle is within seven working days. This is assuming all LTA inspections, financing for passenger and vintage cars there, and insurance approvals can be processed without any delays.
The typical delivery period for most new car deliveries is within 10-14 days. If your preferred vehicle is not in Singapore yet, it may take between 30-45 days for it to arrive. Contact your appointed relationship manager or us for more details before booking your next vehicle.
I need a vehicle urgently from overseas, can you speed up the process?
Sure, we provide priority air-freight shipment for some vehicles regularly for some of our clientele. This service will incur additional fees. Contact your relationship manager for more details regarding delivery estimates.
Can you import a used Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class from overseas for me?
Yes, we can. We can import in a used Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class as long it is up to a maximum of 3 years old.
There are some regulations regarding importing used vehicles – primarily taking note that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
For passenger and vintage cars, there is also a 20% excise duty levied on the vehicle’s cost. You may also need to pay compliance fees to ensure the vehicle passes LTA’s regulations. These may include tinted windows, unapproved strobes, fittings, etc.
I saw a car listed for sale on an overseas website in Japan / United Kingdom / Hong Kong etc. Can you help me import it in?
Yes, we can assist you with the purchase and import of the vehicle. We can confidently manage all customs documentation, processing, and logistic matters about the car being brought into Singapore. Please note a service fee will apply on top of the vehicle costs. Other fees may apply.
Contact us for a quotation about this service.
Can I pre-order a Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class, which is not released yet?
Yes, we can. We can place your order on our priority list and purchase the first vehicle available (to your specifications) the moment it is made available.
Can I utilize a Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class for Grab Car Rentals. We recommend that you visit our Grab Car Rental Page for more information and details about the type and model of vehicle you can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.
Can I rent a Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class for short-term purposes (from 1 day to 7 days etc)?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.
Can I lease a Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.
For Car Leasing requirements, please read more on our Car Leasing page.
What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class back to us, and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing centre.
We also keep parts, components, and accessories – together with an experienced team of specialized mechanics, technicians, and operation managers to deal with any major safety recalls or service campaigns from Mercedes-Benz.
What should I do if my car breaks down or has an accident on the road?
Stay calm and don’t panic. You can call the support number available on the VINCAR decal located on your windshield’s left side. Our support team will be on standby 24/7 to provide you with the necessary roadside assistance and towing support.
Do you sell used/pre-owned Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class?
Yes, we do. Check out our pre-owned section for a collection of pre-owned used cars.
Can I trade in my Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class to VINCAR?
Sure, you can. We can provide a competitive trade-in value for your car. Just contact us and provide the necessary details.
Our team will be able to provide you with more details and information within a day.
What accessories will come with my Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class?
Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager about the available options and accessories that come with your purchase. All items will be indicated clearly in your sales agreement.
Can you provide a 100% loan for your Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class?
No. The maximum loan amount as per financing regulations set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore is 70% if the vehicle’s open market value is less than S$20,000 or 60% if the vehicle’s open market value is more than $20,000.
For more details, you can read this article “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans. “
Can you provide a 10-Year financing loan tenure for your Mercedes-Benz GLB-Class?
No. The maximum loan tenure is seven years for private passenger vehicles and up to 10 years for private hire vehicles.
Other dealers and parallel importers are offering Zero-Money Down, 10-Year financing, and services for their cars. Why can’t you?
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true – it usually is. Some dealerships, especially newer and smaller parallel importers, often dangle enticing deals, discounts, and offers on social media to entice buyers to contact them.
Often such schemes lead to disappointment as the dealer may require a high down-payment amount or require the user to ‘top-up’ for COE, or quote a COE amount that is not realistically biddable.
Here’s an example. A dealer advertises a car price that is $15,000 below standard market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is expected to be at X amount (which is lower than the average), and at this point, you will be pressured to leave a deposit with the dealer to secure your booking at this ‘special’ price.
When the upcoming COE exercise is completed, and COE prices are nowhere near the promised rate, the dealer will ask you to top up more to register your car, and else you would forfeit your booking deposit. We have seen many such examples over the years by many unscrupulous individuals and companies.
Any advertisements you see on Social Media from other dealers promising 10-Year Financing and Zero money down are also a direct violation of the Monetary Authority Of Singapore (MAS)’s regulations on “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans. “
I see similarly named car dealerships/parallel importers in Singapore. Are they related to you?
VINCAR Pte Ltd operates under one single brand name, with only one subsidiary (VINCAR Rental and Leasing Pte Ltd).
We are aware of other parallel importers who often set up Facebook Pages and advertisements with similar-sounding names and derivatives to capitalize on our brand name.
Unfortunately, this practice leads to confusion for new car buyers who get tricked into a bait-and-switch situation.
If you have previously contacted such entities, a quick way to check is to ask if ‘XXX’ company is named ‘XXX.’ If the salesman on the line refuses to answer, dodges the question, or asks you just to visit the showroom address – without providing the company’s name, do be wary.
If the showroom you have visited does not match the original brand name introduced to you, take it as a big red flag. If these companies are willing to mislead you to visit them with a different name, they are likely not going to be trustworthy with other affairs.
Can I test-drive a car before I commit?
For specific models and subject to vehicle availability, we may allow test drives. Please check with your relationship manager or contact us first.
What kind of warranty do I get?
All new vehicles sold by VINCAR by default comes with a 5-year or 100,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions regarding warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing centre located at 24 Leng Kee Road.
Does the warranty cover maintenance?
Typically, vehicle warranties do not cover maintenance fees as they are considered as two separate items. However, during our promotional periods, we may include complimentary service packages.
Check with our sales department for more information regarding active promotions or packages.
Can I purchase an extended warranty from VINCAR?
Yes, subject to terms and conditions. Do check in with our sales team to see what active extended warranty packages we have at the moment that we can assist you with.
Can you deliver the vehicle directly to my home or office address after purchase?
Yes, we can. Contact your sales representative for more details.
Where are your showrooms located?
We have showrooms in 3 locations across Singapore. Two of them are in the Leng Kee Location, 1 in the East (Ubi).
Our Flagship showroom is located at 24 Leng Kee Road, 159096.
