Certification Level: When it comes to being thorough, BMW has you covered.  There are actually two levels of Certification from BMW which include:

  • BMW Certified Pre-Owned – This tier covers drivers for 2 years/ 50,000 miles (whichever comes first).  This comes after the expiration of the basic 4-year/50,000 mile  New Vehicle/SAV Limited Warranty.  This results in an astounding 6 years/100,000 miles (whichever comes first).  Better still, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles retailed on or after January 1, 2014 also include up to 6 years of BMW Roadside Assistance and BMW Assist™ Emergency Call.
  • BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite –  Vehicle bearing this certification are a newer model year and feature lower mileage (between 300 and 15,001 miles).  The BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite warranty covers drivers for 1 year/25,000 miles (whichever comes first) after the expiration of the original 4-year/50,000 mile New Vehicle/SAV Limited warranty.  Additionally, Certified Pre-Owned vehicles retailed on or after January 1, 2014 also include up to 6 years of BMW Roadside Assistance and BMW Assist™ Emergency Call.


Both the Certified Pre-Owned BMW Protection Plan and the BMW Certified Pre-Owned Elite Protection Plan offer specific coverage against defects in material and workmanship.  They are not maintenance programs or an  extension of the original 4-year/50,000mile warranty as various items are not covered in the Certified Pre-Owned protection plans.
