What Are Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles?

Certified pre-owned vehicles are the mix of new and pre-owned. Like pre-owned vehicles, this type of vehicle has been owned and driven by at least one previous driver. They’re also similar to new cars due to rigorous tests the vehicle must first pass before it earns its BMW Certified badge. These tests ensure the vehicle is in like-new condition.

Who Should I Drive a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

A certified pre-owned vehicle is perfect for all types of drivers. Whether it’s your first time behind the wheel or you’re ready for an upgrade, BMW Certified cars are a great choice.

Who Should I Drive a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?A quick way to determine whether driving a BMW Certified vehicle is the best option for you is to ask yourself if you like additional perks. What type of perks? Check out this list of benefits that come with a BMW once it’s been certified:

  • 1-year/unlimited-mile BMW Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty
  • 24/7 BMW Roadside Assistance for up to 6 years
  • BMW Assist™ Safety Plan
  • Extended Vehicle Protection
  • Access to genuine BMW parts

All these benefits come standard in addition to everything you know and love about BMW models.

How Does a Vehicle Become Certified?

How Does a Vehicle Become Certified?Before it can wear the BMW Certified badge with honor, a vehicle must first pass a 360-degree vehicle inspection by a trained professional. This inspection checks various points of the vehicle to ensure it’s in the best condition possible. This includes reviewing a CARFAX® or AutoCheck® Vehicle History Report™.

A vehicle must also be outfitted with genuine BMW parts and have an up-to-date maintenance history.

The final check before a vehicle becomes certified is a road test to ensure a smooth commute for you and your passengers.

It’s worth mentioning that only late-model vehicles that have more than 300 miles but fewer than 60,000 miles are eligible for the BMW Certified program.
