June 23rd, 2020 by

The Lifestyle of a MINI Cooper is right at your fingertips–but you may be shopping on a limited budget, or you just want to save a few thousand dollars on your purchase. To hit all the must-haves on your list, you’re likely considering buying a used or Certified Pre-Owned MINI model or something you think is more affordable so why not consider a service loaner or courtesy transportation vehicle the next time you’re in the market?


What is a MINI Courtesy Service Loaner or Demonstrator Vehicle?

MINI Courtesy Service Loaner vehicles–also known as courtesy cars–are dealer-owned models that stay on the dealership lot and are used exclusively for business purposes, including serving as temporary rentals for service-center clients whose personal vehicles will be in service for longer than they can afford to wait.

MINI Demonstrator vehicles– are new vehicles that has been driven by dealership salesmen, managers or executives but has never been registered with the state. A used car is any car that has been registered or titled.

Interestingly, loaner car inventories are actually the reason why luxury vehicles–like MINI–have one of the highest resell rates within 12-18 months of purchase date; but it’s because MINI dealers are incentivized to purchase new vehicles to stock their courtesy vehicle fleets, use them for a period of time as a convenience to their service customers, and then add them to their own pre-owned inventory.
