When you're shopping for your next car, trying to figure out which model or even which make to go for is a daunting challenge, made even harder when you try to consider which local dealership to shop with. When you're shopping used, that problem gets amplified a dozen times over by the countless roadside car lots selling used vehicles. However, those with discerning taste, high expectations, and a search history that includes "used BMW near me" won't be distracted by anything sub-standard.

For over 100 years, the world has looked to BMW to deliver an experience of automotive excellence, focused on the strength of the drivetrain with looks and comforts designed to be worthy of the vehicle's superb performance. You wouldn't be alone if you felt like the BMW experience was out of reach, as new models command prices befitting their performance and luxury. However, a combination of depreciation and high-quality powertrains makes a used BMW perfectly affordable for any driver with a modest budget. You've come to the right place to learn more about the possibilities that used BMW vehicles have to offer. BMW of Cincinnati North is a BMW M Certified Center offering Southern Ohio's most professional BMW experience delivered by a locally-owned family dealership that you can count on.


Hunting for a Used BMW?

Where to buy your next used car is as important a question as choosing what to buy in the first place. While non-affiliated dealers will often offer the lowest prices, you're likely to be gambling on older vehicles with patchy maintenance and accident histories that will probably cost you more in the long run. We certainly recommend working with certified brand-name dealerships as they will offer the best combination of price and quality; their expert knowledge of their product ensures that anything on the lot will be a vehicle they're ready to stand behind.

That goes double for top-notch dealerships like BMW of Cincinnati North. We know BMW inside and out, and our BMW M Certified Center status means our technicians undergo annual training on BMW's most advanced technologies and most capable vehicles. That ranks us among the upper echelon of BMW dealerships nationwide. Simply put, nobody knows BMW vehicles better than us, making BMW of Cincinnati North the best place to find a used BMW in the Cincinnati Metropolitan Area.

Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned BMW

Buying pre-owned vehicles makes sense for the majority of shoppers. Leasing is low-cost but comes with restrictions on mileage, while new vehicles are simply expensive. For affordable prices up-front and a reasonable resale value down the road, buying used is the way to go. BMW is one of the best brands to buy used, as a matter of fact. As a foreign luxury brand, there's a lot of initial value placed on the exclusivity of the models that quickly depreciates, lowering the resale value by a substantial percentage. New BMWs experience some of the industry's highest initial depreciation rates, which means buying a three or four-year-old BMW can literally save you tens of thousands of dollars versus purchasing a brand new one. As long as you can accept the slightly older technology, the decision is a financial no-brainer.

That's not the only benefit of buying a used or certified pre-owned BMW model. The usual downsides to buying used - absent technology, questionable reliability, and dated interiors - tend not to apply to BMWs. While cutting-edge developments will surely be absent, vehicles of BMW's caliber are years ahead of the more common budget-friendly brands. This means that a used BMW is quite likely to sport technologies and luxury features equal or superior to much newer vehicles at a similar price point. The use of high-quality materials and sturdy assembly methods also ensures that your BMW's interior will remain elegant for years to come. Finally, as an engine manufacturer before all else, the powertrain is BMW's pride and joy - you need not fear for the durability of a used BMW's top-tier engine or transmission.

Your concerns might not be so easily assuaged, but that's okay. For the absolute best combination of pricing and quality, we'll advise you to shop for a certified pre-owned (CPO) BMW. These models have a one year warranty with unlimited mileage on top of whatever remains of the standard factory four-year or 50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty that comes with every BMW. You can even extend that warranty up to seven years or 100,000 miles by opting for BMW's extended vehicle protection. In addition to this superb coverage, you can be certain that a CPO BMW has under 60,000 miles and has passed comprehensive inspection and road test evaluations with any questionable components repaired or replaced.

On top of this, CPO BMWs come with 24/7 Roadside Assistance, including towing, lock out services, and more, plus automatic assists for the protection of your vehicle and yourself. These include TeleService, which will notify your local BMW dealer when service is needed, and BMW Assist Emergency Call, which will automatically notify emergency services in the event of a collision for the fastest response possible. As beneficial as buying used or CPO already is, these additional services go the extra mile to ensure that your pre-owned BMW is the best automotive purchase you'll ever make.
