Buying and owning a BMW is a dream for many people but one that may be difficult to fulfill due to the high cost of BMW vehicle. We at Irvine BMW have a convenient and affordable way to buy a BMW, and this is through the Certified Pre-Owned BMW program. Come to our dealership near Laguna Beach to get more information on the program and check out the many CPO BMW vehicles we have for sale.

What Makes it a CPO?

A Certified Pre-Owned BMW is a BMW that has passed specific eligibility requirements, which include mileage (more than 300 but less than 60,000), age (only late models), and inspection. The first thing we do when we attempt to certify a BMW is get a copy of a Carfax vehicle history report so we know the history of the vehicle. The report must state that the vehicle is under no recalls, has not been in serious accidents, and has a clear title.


Unlike most used or pre-owned vehicles that come with no warranty or a short warranty, our CPO BMW vehicles are covered under a BMW-backed warranty that goes for unlimited miles or one year. This coverage goes into effect after the original new car warranty expires. Certain late model BMWs may also be covered with the BMW Assist Safety Plan, which offers emergency service help should you be stranded on the road or involved in an accident.

This is in addition to the roadside assistance that is in effect for all CPO BMW vehicles for six years. Buyers also have the option to purchase an extended vehicle protection plan to add extra time and mileage to their warranty.


Each BMW being considered for the CPO program must go through and pass a 196-point inspection to ensure that the vehicle is in good condition. Certified BMW technicians using only genuine BMW parts inspect the vehicles. The vehicle is inspected and taken on a road test. It must meet every high standard set by BMW before it can be certified.
