BMW Certified Pre-Owned Program

Overview

BMW’s certified pre-owned (CPO) program now tacks an additional year of comprehensive coverage on to its original factory warranty. That means all certified pre-owned BMW vehicles get one additional year of coverage after the original 4 years or 50,000 miles of protection — and the one additional year has no mileage limit, which is good for those who drive a lot. If you wish to add more warranty coverage to your certified pre-owned BMW, you can also pay extra to add one more year of coverage beyond the additional year you get with any CPO model.

What We Like

Warranty is transferable; unlimited mileage coverage; frequent special financing rate offers

What We Don’t

Only five years of coverage now standard; $50 deductible

Program Specifics

If you’re interested in a used BMW, you may want to consider the brand’s certified pre-owned warranty. Not only does the warranty offer additional peace of mind that you’ll be covered if something breaks, it can shield you from potentially pricey repairs that are fairly common thanks to BMW’s expensive parts and labor prices.
The primary benefit of BMW’s CPO warranty is its comprehensive protection: BMW’s certified pre-owned plan offers one year of additional coverage beyond the factory warranty of 4 years or 50,000 miles, meaning cars can be covered for up to 5 years. The additional year has no mileage limit, which gives high-mileage drivers good peace of mind.
Unfortunately, by only offering up to 5 years of certified pre-owned coverage, BMW now slips below some rival brands — including Audi, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volvo — who offer up to 6 years of bumper-to-bumper protection. An additional year of coverage is available with a certified pre-owned BMW, but only if you pay extra for it — whereas it’s included on the aforementioned luxury brand rivals.
Beyond warranties, BMW’s certified pre-owned program has a few other benefits, such as available special financing offers and full transferability to other owners (with a $200 fee). While we don’t like the $50 deductible per visit, we recognize that this is lower than the amount charged by some of BMW’s rival luxury brands.
Although BMW’s certified pre-owned warranty isn’t perfect, it’s certainly worth considering if you’re interested in buying a used example of one of the brand’s vehicles.
