CPO Warranty

I have a 2006 330i with 53k on the odometer, purchased at 36k CPO, the driver side AC Vent stoped blowing air, would this be covered under the CPO warranty?

Thanks

Kinda a side question, dealership replaced the front rotors and pads at 48k like 3 months ago, but I noticed the brake fluid flush is due next month, do they not flush the fluid after every brake job? Only every 2 years?

And lastly if anyone has pictures of a e90 underbody please post!

Yes,

Brake Fluid is service based IIRC and it's ~ every 2 yrs.

I would think the vent issue would be covered under the CPO warranty.

It depends on what is the problem, CPO does not cover everything. A brake flush is maintenance which is not covered.

CPO only covers major items, such as drivetrain and certain lectrical items. Trim parts are not covered, and only bulb covered are xenon bulbs. Do you have no airflow from vents at all, or just no airflow from d/s vent? If you have no airflow at all, then it sounds like a blower resistor and that is covered under CPO. Hope this helps...

The only thing that Your CPO warranty covers is Engine,Tranny, and differential. The brake fluid flush you gona have to do on your own. Also counts for oil changes, brakes and rotors.

Did you every find out if the CPO would cover the vent issue. If it doesn't, what it the point of getting a CPO?

engine, trans, modules = the high priced items. CPO does not cover trims/knobs.

Ok, that makes sense. But how often do things like these really go on these cars?

Won't it be better just to save the money you were going to put towards the CPO warranty and if you need the money for something, use it then? Or are the parts in labor way more then the 1.5K or so for the warranty?

Not true. I see modules freak out everyday. Oil, power steering, and coolant leaks are covered under CPO. I did an oil pan gasket on an e90 a while back. Believe I charged 7hrs of labor. About $1000 just for an oil leak.

They cover more than that, but it's up to the dealership to say whether it is defective or just wear and tear. It's really shady of BMW to do that. The following info is from BMW's website and they basically can say anything they want on most of the items. The most confusing part is the suspension coverage. It's mentioned in both sections.

Covered:

Engine
Automatic/Manual Transmission
Front Suspension
Rear Suspension
Steering
Brakes
ABS Brake System
Electrical
Air Conditioning/Heating System
Cooling System
Interior/Exterior
Fuel System
Final Drive Assembly, Propeller Shaft


Not Covered:

Upkeep Items
Maintenance; engine, transmission, and body adjustments; wheel alignment, balancing or rotation; wiper blade inserts; engine drive belts; spark plugs; filters; fuses; all batteries; all hoses and clamps (except air conditioning and power steering); oils, lubricants, fluids, refrigerants and coolants (except as required in the course of a covered repair); brake pads and rotors; brake shoes and drums; manual transmission clutch assemblies; suspension dampers (shock absorbers/strut elements); exhaust systems; tires.

Wear and Tear
All wear and tear items as defined in The Certified Pre-Owned BMW Protection Plan Consumer Information Statement (including all suspension parts and components).

Body and Interior
Paint; glass; headlamps; bulbs (except instrumentation); mirrors; lenses; body and chassis; body seals and gaskets; interior and exterior trim, moldings, and fasteners; upholstery, headliner, carpeting, floor and trunk mats; convertible top (all components except electronics); air or water leaks; wind or body noises; wheels; damage due to rust, corrosion, or contamination, except as covered by the BMW New Vehicle Rust and Corrosion Perforation Warranty.

Accessories
Radio/cassette player, telephone, navigation system, CD changer, or any components of those systems; non-original equipment parts, components or accessories.




The Certified Pre-Owned BMW Protection Plan Consumer Information Statement described above is impossible to obtain. No one seems to have a copy. I have searched all over the internet for it. Contacted BMW for a copy, they said they don't have an e-copy and that a hard copy is available at the dealer for my REVIEW. WTF. They are trying so hard to confuse us as to what exactly is the contractual agreement between us and BMW.
