What is a loaner vehicle?

How do we select our loaner models? Our service loaners are part of a select inventory of new vehicles that are set aside for those who need reliable transportation while their vehicle is being serviced. Oftentimes, when a service loaner reaches a certain number of miles, we make this vehicle available for purchase like it was a regular used vehicle. Purchasing a retired service loaner allows you to benefit in similar ways had you purchased a used vehicle. These benefits include:

  • Avoid major depreciation: Most new vehicles will lose their value quickly within the first five years. By choosing a retired loaner vehicle, you can stretch your investment even further. Your vehicle will depreciate much slower because it has already lost the majority of its value within the first few years.
  • Pay Lower Sales Tax: The higher the cost you pay for your vehicle, the higher the sales tax you can expect to pay. Paying less for a great model means you can save on sales tax.
  • Pay Lower Insurance: Used vehicles usually have lower insurance rates because it is easier and less expensive to fix them. And because they have already spent time out on the market, you will usually have more options in terms of service as you aren’t restricted by the demands of a new car’s warranty.
  • Explore endless options: The pre-owned market is large, and with such an impressive variety of models available, you can enjoy the benefits of a larger selection with endless options. You may even be able to find models that are no longer in production or even be able to afford a specific vehicle that would be otherwise out of your budget if it were new.
  • Enjoy More Customization Options: By choosing a service loaner, you are opening up more doors to customization options that wouldn’t be available if you were shopping new. The marketplace is larger for used vehicles due to time passing and the quantity of that specific vehicle on the market.

Benefits of Buying a Certified Pre-Owned BMW

Many retired service loaners qualify to be Certified Pre-Owned BMW vehicles. These vehicles come with the same benefits as other used vehicles but are all younger vehicles, have been thoroughly inspected, and meet additional rigorous standards set by BMW.

  • Rigorous certification process
  • Special CPO Warranty
  • BMW Roadside Assistance
