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 current model year car that's very lightly used. However, for a car that is at least 3 model years old, you could enjoy much higher savings than buying new, which makes CPO the best choice if you prioritize saving money when you shop.

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

The main difference between certified pre-owned and used is that a certified vehicle typically has to pass a rigorous inspection performed by highly-qualified service technicians as part of a certification 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 of warranty for a BMW CPO vehicle even without purchasing additional coverage!), along with additional perks exclusive to CPO owners. A used vehicle from a private seller likely won’t have the same coverage 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: general upkeep as a result of regular vehicle use, scheduled maintenance, or the repair/replacement of any non-original manufacturer parts. The limited CPO warranty will primarily cover any replacements or repairs required 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?

It depends. Under certain circumstances, it is possible to lease a CPO BMW with low enough age and mileage, or it may be offered through a special program (such as the College Graduate program). It is ultimately up to the dealer to offer any leasing terms for a certified BMW.
