I would be surprised to see some sort of study that said loaner cars are less reliable than non-loaner cars. All of that said, my dealership only has base 328i auto's for loaners, not something I would be interested in anyway...
I drive mine a little harder than my own, but they usually don't have ZSP so not much fun can be had anyways. I wouldn't be concerned with the reliability of a CPO loaner though, the only thing that would bother me is knowing how many people my car was whored out to, and how bad the paint is under close inspection.
My preferred loaner is the X5's they have, I'd personally never own an SUV but they're fun for a few days.
