The certified pre-owned literature specifically says the A/C is covered. My problem was the condensor leaked. It was replaced, along with, I think, the evaporator. The system was recharged, and of course most of the $1400 went to labor.

: : 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.

: 1400.00 dollars I have the Certified program and it didnt covered the A/C. My problem was in the
