Consider the Benefits of Buying or Leasing a Certified Pre-Owned BMW from South Bay BMW

It's a truism that certain things only improve with age, like fine wines, small-batch whiskey and Bavarian-made luxury vehicles. That's why many luxury car shoppers opt for a certified pre-owned BMW, from the 3 Series, 5 Series and 7 Series sedans, to the 4 Series and 6 Series coupes and cabriolets, to the X3 and X5 SAVs and even the high-performance BMW M line.

While a new BMW is indeed a flawless specimen of leading-edge automotive engineering, new vehicles - regardless of the brand - tend to lose a lot of value once they're driven off the dealership lot, and even more after the first year of ownership. In fact, studies show that a new car's market value may decline by as much as 30 percent over the first 12 months.

Certified pre-owned BMW models are carefully screened - these are recent model sedans, coupe, cabriolets and SAVs with less than 60,000 miles on the odometer. Every CPO BMW also undergoes an intensive multipoint, top-to-bottom, front-to-back inspection performed by a factory-trained BMW service technician to ensure the vehicle meets BMW's rigorous quality and safety standards. Today's BMW models are built to run for 200,000 miles, 300,000 miles or more, so with less than 60,000 miles, a CPO BMW is just getting broken in.

Finally, CPO BMWs come with peace-of-mind provided through an extended warranty: coverage for an additional two years or 50,000 miles that kicks in once the original four-year/50,000-mile new vehicle warranty expires. So you're getting a BMW with a total warranty covering six years and 100,000 miles. Furthermore, CPO BMWs all come with 24/7 BMW Roadside Assistance, for help with anything from a flat tire or dead battery to an emergency tow as well as the BMW Assist™ Emergency Call feature, which includes automatic collision notification and TeleService for the duration of Certification. Not bad for a "used" car.
