BMW Extended Warranty Information
If you are purchasing an BMW, or if you already own one, you may be thinking about getting some level of coverage beyond the normal manufacturer's warranty. Although BMW's are generally very reliable vehicles, an extended auto warranty may provide you with protection to offer you the peace of mind you are looking for. BMW Coverage programs can either extend the original level of coverage that came with your vehicle, or offer you a limited extended warranty plan. These plans are accepted nationwide at all BMW dealers, and also afford you with most of the benefits usually granted with new car purchases.

BMW Extended Warranties - Independent Companies
Although BMW offers a very good extended warranty, many consumers feel more comfortable joining a third party provider. With a third party plan there are no restrictions regarding where you need to bring your vehicle, allowing you to go to any garage or mechanic in the country. This advantage will free you of the hassles of having to always deal with a dealer, make an appointment days away, and wait all afternoon for your repairs to be finished. You should investigate your options before picking your extended warranty plan.

Every Certified Pre-Owned BMW is backed by a special BMW Protection Plan which provides coverage on the car for up to two years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the date of expiration of the 4-year/50,000 mile BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty.1

1Subject to all terms, conditions and exclusions of the Plan as in effect on February 1, 1999. See your BMW center for complete details.



The Certified Pre-Owned BMW Warranty protects you against defects in materials or workmanship for a wide range of vehicle components. The Warranty is administered by BMW of North America, LLC, ensuring that covered repairs are performed by BMW-trained technicians using only genuine BMW replacement parts. And, since this is a BMW-backed program, you won't have to wait for a third-party adjuster to decide whether your repair is covered, Your BMW center can make the determination right on the spot.

Although the Certified Pre-Owned BMW Limited Warranty is extremely comprehensive, it is not an extension of the original 4-year/50,000 mile New BMW Vehicle Limited Warranty. The Certified Pre-Owned BMW Limited Warranty takes over when the BMW New Vehicle Limited Warranty expires, and the coverage it provides is somewhat different from the new car warranty.

Certified Pre-Owned Certification

Only the best pre-owned BMWs qualify for the Certified Pre-Owned BMW Vehicle Program.

They must pass an extensive examination - a thorough and rigorous inspection by BMW factory-trained technicians. They inspect the vehicle for safety, performance and wear. If something is not right, it is fixed. If it cannot be fixed, the car cannot become a Certified Pre-Owned BMW.
