Mercedes-Benz Rising Stars Program

At Mercedes-Benz of Stockton we believe that no driver should be denied their dreams of cruising Lodi and Lathrop in a premium, reliable vehicle due to minimal or zero credit. That’s why we proudly offer the Mercedes-Benz Rising Stars Program to eligible candidates! Through the Rising Star Program, we’ll provide individuals from Discovery Bay and beyond with opportunities like no down payments, no security deposits, and low finance rates with variable term lengths. So while you work toward your professional goals, let the Rising Star Program help you achieve your driving dreams. To be eligible for Rising Star, you must be one of the following:

  • College graduate without a car who is progressing in their career
  • Current local or international college student
  • First-time Mercedes-Benz buyer

You’ve worked hard to get where you are. Don’t let minimal credit deter you from sitting behind the wheel of luxury.

Which Vehicles Are Included With Rising Star?

Through the Mercedes-Benz Rising Stars Program, eligible individuals can get behind the wheel of any new or Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz vehicle that can be leased or financed through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
