Buying a certified pre-owned Ford is one of the best options if you want a great value and a reliable vehicle. Certified pre-owned models tend to cost a little bit more than other used models, but they are typically worth the extra cost since you can trust that they will work well for years to come. Here are just some of the benefits of choosing a Ford certified model instead of a non-certified used model.
In order to become certified, Ford models have to pass a rigorous inspection that covers 172 points. This means that everything from the engine mounts to the brake calipers and HVAC system has been checked. Even the seats and interior mats of a vehicle must be examined and pass the tests to become a certified model. In other words, you are almost guaranteed that every component of your certified pre-owned Ford will be in perfect working order. The inspection also includes the vehicle history and a road test so there are no surprises later on. Even before this inspection, a vehicle has to be 6 years old or less and have been driven fewer than 80,000 miles.
Vehicle History Report
When you buy a certified used model from Ford, you don’t have to just trust that our technicians reviewed its vehicle history report carefully. Instead, we give you a copy of the CARFAX Vehicle History Report so you can see it for yourself and keep it on hand.
Used vehicles typically just give you whatever is left of the original warranty, if anything. Ford certified pre-owned vehicles, however, add a new Comprehensive Limited Warranty. This warranty will cover over 1,000 different components in your vehicle and do so for 12,000 miles or 12 months. You also get a 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty with your certified vehicle. To make life easier, this warranty also includes 24-hour roadside assistance so you never have to worry about changing your surprise flat tire, getting locked out, or jumping a dead battery.
