Why Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Ford?

Consider your priorities for your next vehicle purchase -- you're likely looking for a car, truck, or SUV that both offers excellent value and impressive quality. With a certified pre-owned Ford, that's exactly what you'll get. Ford seeks out top-notch pre-owned models with low mileage in an effort to help customers find the best used car options available. Selected models are offered with an array of convenient ownership benefits.

Late Model Year, Low Mileage

Not all Ford models are eligible for certification -- only those within certain model years and with low mileage will be considered. Each vehicle must be less than six years old and have less than 80,000 miles to qualify for certified pre-owned consideration.

Diligent Inspection Process

In order to get certified, a pre-owned Ford vehicle must pass a thorough 172-point inspection. A certified Ford technician will go over a broad array of components and systems to make sure each satisfies expectations for quality. If a vehicle fails that inspection and can't be reconditioned, Ford will not grant certification.

Vehicle History Report

It's easy to see why some drivers are hesitant to choose a pre-owned vehicle. If you're not sure about the past of a vehicle, you could unknowingly step into a car that's experienced flood, fire, or accident damage.

With a certified pre-owned Ford, you won't have to worry about ambiguity. That's because every certified Ford comes with a clean CARFAX vehicle history report. If a vehicle history report shows circumstances like a salvage title, frame damage, odometer issues, or other problems, Ford won't admit it to the certified pre-owned program.

Warranty Coverage

Ford is so confident in its certified pre-owned vehicles that offers not just one, but two certified warranty programs.

Comprehensive Limited Warranty

This warranty is designed to ensure a quality experience in your first year of ownership, lasting for 12 months or 12,000 miles -- whichever comes first. Over a thousand named systems and components are covered throughout the vehicle. These systems include:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-Wheel Drive
  • Front-Wheel Drive
  • Steering Components
  • Safety Systems
  • Factory Audio
  • Emissions Components
  • Technology Components
  • Air Conditioning and Heating
  • Electrical Systems
  • Front and Rear Suspensions
  • Brakes

Powertrain Limited Warranty

Warranty coverage extends well beyond the first year of ownership, however. The limited powertrain warranty covers a range of parts throughout the engine, transmission, and more. Plus, it lasts for up to seven years or 100,000 miles. You'll be ready to approach each journey with full confidence that Ford has your back.

24/Hour Roadside Assistance

The road can present unexpected circumstances. From flat tires to dead batteries, certain road blocks may be out of your control. Ford believes that its certified pre-owned owners should have extra support in the event of unplanned road hazards. That's why a complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance service is offered with every certified pre-owned vehicle.

You can take advantage of roadside assistance at any time during any day of the year. If you run into a problem, Ford can send help promptly. If needed, you can even get a tow to the nearest certified Ford service center for further assessment. This service lasts as long as the seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty is active.
