What is the Difference Between Used and Certified Pre-Owned?

Are you curious about the difference between the used vehicles and certified pre-owned models available at BMW of Warwick? While both offer a budget-friendly way to upgrade your East Greenwich commute, there are some key distinctions between them that you should keep in mind. Learn more about CPO vs. used, then visit our dealership in Warwick to explore your options today! 

About Used Cars 

A used vehicle is one that has been previously owned and driven. When shopping for a used car, truck, or SUV at BMW of Warwick, you’ll find that the options vary in terms of the model year, mileage, and the number of previous owners. One thing that all used vehicles have in common is that they come with a price tag that is significantly less than a new car. 

Some things to remember when shopping for a used car include:

  • Some used car shoppers may think that it is risky to buy a used car with 100,000 miles or more on the odometer, but a high mileage pre-owned vehicle can be a great choice if it has been kept up to date on routine maintenance and care.
  • A used vehicle is not required by the manufacturer to be inspected before being sold. That being said, here at BMW of Warwick we have our expert auto technicians inspect each of our used vehicles for safety and quality. That’s one of the benefits of shopping for a used car at our dealership vs. a private seller.
  • Since used cars do not typically come with any kind of warranty coverage, you should factor the cost of maintenance and repairs into your budget.

In addition to carrying a fine selection of used vehicles priced under $10K, BMW of Warwick offers rotating used vehicle specials where you can find some of the best deals in the Providence area

About CPO Vehicles

What is the difference between used and certified pre-owned vehicles? CPO vehicles must meet the eligibility standards of the original manufacturer before being offered for sale. Here are some of the details regarding the BMW Certified program:

  • Only late-model BMW vehicles with more than 300 miles but less than 60,000 miles on the odometer are eligible for certification.
  • A multi-point 360° vehicle inspection is performed by a certified BMW technician, and any maintenance or reconditioning is completed using only genuine BMW parts.
  • A free CARFAX™ or AutoCheck® vehicle history report is available with all BMW Certified vehicles.
  • All BMW Certified vehicles are covered by the BMW Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Limited Warranty for one year with unlimited mileage after the original new vehicle warranty has expired.
  • BMW Roadside Assistance coverage is provided for up to six years.
  • Special BMW Certified financing offers are available.

As you can see, the main difference between CPO vs. used is the extra peace of mind that comes with the CPO certification process and warranty coverage. If a like-new, low-mileage BMW is what you’re looking for, then you’ll want to opt for a certified pre-owned model.
