MINI Certified Pre-Owned

Program Summary

    The standard MINI Certified Pre-Owned program provides specific coverage against defects in materials and workmanship, and includes:

    • 12 months / unlimited miles warranty after the expiration of the 4-year / 50,000-mile new-vehicle warranty, for a total of 5 years / unlimited miles

    Regarding certified pre-owned MINI vehicles that originally retailed on or after April 1, 2014, the MINI Certified Pre-Owned Limited Warranty is not transferable except within the authorized MINI dealer network or a private-to-private consumer transaction, at which point there's a $200 warranty transfer fee. That's somewhat on the steep side, since some companies charge less and others don't charge at all.

    All MINI Certified Pre-Owned vehicles include:

    • CARFAX® vehicle history report
    • 24/7 roadside assistance
    • Rigorous inspection
    • $50 deductible


Certified MINI Pre-Owned Program Overview

Every car in MINI's Certified Pre-Owned program is thoroughly inspected and reconditioned where necessary by MINI-trained technicians using genuine MINI parts. To be eligible for MINI's Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program, a late-model vehicle must be under five years old and have no more than 60,000 miles on the odometer.

MINI Certified Pre-Owned Features


MINI does not give a number regarding how many items are scrutinized (Audi, for example, states "300-plus"), but describes its process as "rigorous." An earlier version of MINI's CPO program made mention of a 181-point inspection, so it's reasonable to assume something similar or better for the current program. Some of the obvious areas are engine, brakes, steering system, suspension, wheels, tires, exterior panels and paintwork, cabin, electrics, heating and air conditioning. Every MINI vehicle has to be approved and signed off by a technician, service manager and MINI CPO manager.


  • 12 months / unlimited miles warranty after the expiration of the 4-year / 50,000-mile new-vehicle warranty, for a total of 5 years / unlimited miles. MINI charges a $50 deductible for work carried out under the CPO warranty


  • 24/7 roadside assistance: 365 days a year for the duration of the warranty, which could be up to five years. There's a MINI Roadside Assistance App for smartphones that provides information such as the estimated time of arrival of the tow truck
  • Carfax® vehicle history report
