Frequently Asked Questions

Is Certified Pre-Owned worth it?

It depends. Determining whether buying CPO is worth it requires evaluating the true cost and savings while you shop. There are scenarios where a certified pre-owned vehicle is only a few thousand dollars less than a new car that makes a new car purchase the better option, especially if it's a very lightly used current model year certified vehicle. However, for a car with like-new quality that is at least 3 model years old, you could enjoy much bigger savings than buying new, which makes CPO a great choice if you're seeking a hefty discount on your certified used car purchase.

What is the difference between Certified Pre-Owned and Used?

The main difference between certified pre-owned and used is that a certified vehicle has to pass a rigorous inspection by highly-trained service technicians as part of the certified process, and then reconditioned to like-new quality. Most CPO programs have a CPO limited warranty that activates after the New Vehicle Warranty expires (this could mean up to 5 years warranty for a BMW CPO vehicle even without purchasing additional warranty plans!), along with additional perks exclusive to CPO owners. A used car, truck or SUV from a private seller likely won’t have the same warranty and perks as a certified vehicle.

What doesn’t the BMW CPO warranty cover?

Some things the BMW limited CPO warranty won’t cover include: scheduled maintenance, general upkeep as a result of regular vehicle use or the repair/replacement of any non-original manufacturer parts. Overall, he limited CPO warranty will cover any repairs or replacements as a result of defects in materials or workmanship performed by the dealer.Read more about what isn’t covered.

Can you lease a Certified BMW?

Under certain circumstances, it is possible to lease a CPO BMW with low enough age and mileage, or if it's offered through a special program (such as the College Graduate program) - offering leasing terms of any kind for a CPO BMW will be up to the dealer.
