A Certified Pre-Owned BMW is one of the smartest purchases you can make. It's backed by an up to 6-year/100,000 mile protection plan and has been thoroughly inspected by a BMW-trained technician. And most importantly, it has the performance, innovation and engineering that make BMW the Ultimate Driving Machine®.

Why should you buy a Certified Pre-Owned BMW from BMW of San Francisco?

Certification Process: In order for a BMW to become Certified Pre-Owned, it goes through a comprehensive certification process that includes rigorous criteria and meticulously performed procedures. And to even be eligible, it must be a late-year model with no more than 60,000 miles on the odometer.

Warranty: The Ultimate Driving Machine deserves the Ultimate Protection Plan. Every Certified Pre-Owned BMW comes with a protection plan designed to give you the ultimate peace-of-mind. All Certified Pre-Owned BMW vehicles are exceptional, as are our two tiers of Certification:

BMW Certified Pre-Owned: Covers you for 2 years/50,000 miles* whichever comes first, after the expiration of the 4-year/50,000-mile New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty for a total of 6 years/100,000 miles.* This includes up to 6 years of 24/7 Roadside Assistance and BMW Assist™ Emergency Call, which includes automatic collision notification, and TeleService.

BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite: These are newer model year, lower mileage (more than 300 miles but less than 15,001 miles) vehicles. This warranty covers you for 1 year/25,000 miles* after the expiration of the 4-year/50,000-mile New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty or for a total of 5 years/75,000 miles.* For Certified Pre-Owned vehicles retailed on or after January 1, 2014, up to 5 years of BMW Roadside Assistance and BMW AssistTM Emergency Call, which includes Automatic Collision Notification, and TeleService are included.

The Certified Pre-Owned BMW Protection Plan and the BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite Protection Plan provide specific coverage against defects in material and workmanship; the plan is not a Maintenance Program or an extension of the original 4-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty. There are various items that are not covered by these warranties.

See what is not covered as of January 1, 2014.

For Certified Pre-Owned vehicles retailed on or after January 1, 2014, the BMW Certified Pre-Owned Protection Plan and the BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite Protection Plan are not transferable except within the BMW authorized dealer network or subject to the following condition:

And for even greater peace of mind, BMW Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with BMW Assist™ Emergency Call feature, which includes automatic collision notification and TeleService for the duration of Certification.

BMW CPO e-Brochure


There are many reasons that people buy a used car instead of a new one. Sometimes it’s a matter of being between the rock of basic transportation and the hard place of limited funds. Other times there are models that people find particularly desirable that aren’t made any more or were revamped for the new model year. Still other people never buy a new car because they prefer the financial advantages.

The primary financial advantage of buying a used car is that you won’t absorb the high initial cost of depreciation, about 12 percent the first year. Some financial advisers recommend used cars for this reason. Because cars are better made now they last longer, so a three-year-old, pre-owned certified car will provide a good value compared to a similar new model. Plus, the amount of research you can do now—not only a make and model, but the exact vehicle you’re considering—has ballooned in the past decade. Certified pre-owned vehicles have taken some uncertainty out of buying used and sometimes a vehicle will still carry a portion of the new warranty.
