In Reply to: Value of certified pre-owned posted by Mike on February 22, 2000 at 18:45:02:
I bought my '94 525 in 1997 after it came off the original lease at a dealer. They wanted $1600 to have the car certified pre-owned. I still had 1 year left on the orig manufacturers warranty and I chose not to do it. Within what would have been the 2-yr certified period, I paid $1400 to have the A/C fixed. I asked the dealer if this would have been covered in the extended warranty. He said yes. I'm still ahead $200, but it's probably worth it.
: I would like opinions on the cost to associate with the certified pre-owned plan. I want this figure to help me figure out a fair price for a car that I am looking at. Also, I would like any feedback on the program itself.
