Certified Program

Ford Certified Pre-Owned.

Only the Best Pass Our Test

Ford Certified Pre-Owned Before you hit the road in a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, we put every car, truck, SUV and crossover to the test. Only the vehicles that pass our 172-point inspection become Ford Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles.

Why Ford CPO?

  • The Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program takes the risk out of buying a previously owned vehicle. Driving a Ford CPO vehicle means driving with the knowledge and confidence that the vehicle you purchased has been thoroughly inspected and comes with a manufacturer-backed limitedwarranty coverage.
  • 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty Coverage*
  • 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty Coverage*
  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance
  • 172 points of inspection by certified mechanics
  • Vehicle History Report
  • Ford cars, SUVs, crossovers and trucks (up to 350-Series) that are current or five previous model years and have fewer than 80,000 miles can qualify
  • A full tank of fuel, fresh oil and filter, and new wiper blades
  • Service available at any Ford or Lincoln Dealer in the 50 states and Canada

The Benefits

In addition to peace of mind, each Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with these benefits:

  • Warranty – In addition to 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty coverage, every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle also comes with 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty coverage (ask your dealer for warranty details).
    • Roadside Assistance – Roadside assistance is offered for the full duration of the Limited Warranty Coverage. That’s 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in case of a breakdown, blowout or bad weather. Roadside assistance includes:
    • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 for up to three days of lodging, meals and rental vehicle – Destination expense assistance of up to $75 to cover the emergency cost of a taxi, shuttle or rental car to reach your destination
    • Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for up to five days if the vehicle requires overnight mechanical repairs
  • 172-Point Inspection – Before any vehicle can be called a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, it must pass a stringent 172-point inspection. Factory-trained technicians recondition any component that does not meet program standards, or they replace it with only new Ford Motorcraft® or Ford Authorized Remanufactured Parts. Ask your dealer for a copy of the Vehicle Inspection Checklist.
  • Vehicle History Report – You’ll definitely know your vehicle’s history when you purchase a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. As part of the 172-point inspection process, a Vehicle History Report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet Ford Certified Pre-Owned standards. Ask your dealer for a copy of this report.

Warranty Coverage

Excellence and Value Combined

Ford Certified Pre-Owned Comprehensive Limited Warranty coverage, combined with the original Ford New-Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty (if applicable), provides owners with long-lasting peace of mind for their Pre-Owned vehicle.

Ford Certified Pre-Owned Comprehensive Limited Warranty coverage is provided for 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the expiration of the Ford New-Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty or the date of your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Purchase, whichever comes later. The Ford Certified Pre-Owned Powertrain Limited Warranty provides coverage for seven years from the original Ford New-Vehicle Limited Warranty start date or a total of 100,000 miles on the odometer, whichever comes first. Each Ford CPO vehicle has a standard deductible of only $100 for the Comprehensive and Powertrain Limited Warranty, so should repairs be necessary, your cost will be minimal. Please see your dealer for warranty coverage details or refer to your plan provisions.

Value of Ownership

There’s added value to a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. For example, each one includes both comprehensive limited warranty coverage and powertrain limited warranty coverage backed by Ford Motor Company. Every vehicle also goes through a rigorous 172-point inspection by Ford factory-trained dealer technicians. Any part(s) that doesn’t meet our standards is replaced with a Ford factory-authorized part. And then there’s the complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance. Considering all that you get, buying a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a great investment.
