Shoppers in the areas of Rockwall, Mesquite, and Garland should read ahead to learn more!
What Is a Certified Pre-Owned Ford?
Every certified pre-owned Ford starts as a regular used Ford vehicle. However, these certified pre-owned vehicles have to meet a list of credentials. Each certified pre-owned Ford has to be six years old or less and have 80,000 miles or less on the odometer.
Any Ford model produced within the last six years can become a certified pre-owned Ford vehicle as long as it meets these qualifications.
How Does a Used Ford Become a CPO Ford?
Being a certain age and having under a certain number of miles is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to certifying a pre-owned Ford vehicle. In order to actually qualify for the program, a Ford vehicle must undergo a meticulous 172-point inspection by a qualified and experienced Ford technician.
During the inspection, this technician will test and inspect the Ford vehicle from top to bottom, including:
- The vehicle history, such as service recalls and maintenance history
- A road test, including engine, transmission, and brake functionality
- Vehicle exterior condition, including body, doors, bumpers, grilles, and more
- Technology functionality, such as audio, navigation, safety features, and convenience
- Underbody condition, including wheels, tires, suspension, and fuel tank
Each of these parts and the many more that make up a Ford vehicle will be closely examined for damage and signs of degrading. If a part shows excessive usage, it’ll either be replaced with an OEM part or the vehicle will be declined for the program.
What Are the Benefits of a CPO Ford?
All certified pre-owned Ford vehicles offer the “like-new” quality that you’re looking for. However, they don’t stop there. They also offer a variety of benefits, starting with an extended limited warranty that covers more than 1,000 components of your vehicle for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Additionally, you’ll get a 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.1
On top of this extended coverage of the vehicle, Ford also has you covered with complimentary 24-hour roadside assistance. If you drive a certified pre-owned Ford and find yourself in a pickle, day or night, Ford will send someone to help.
