If you're looking for a used car that you can rely on day in and day out, start your search with our Ford certified pre-owned selection. These vehicles earn their place in this category by being of top quality and are rewarded for their excellence with warranties that help buyers keep them in excellent condition for longer. Read on to break down what it takes to be a CPO vehicle and the benefits of buying certified Ford cars.

What Defines a Certified Ford Pre-Owned Vehicle?

Ford has two categories of CPO vehicles. Those with a clean vehicle history that pass a 139-point inspection and road testing can be named Ford Blue Certified vehicles. These cars are thoroughly reconditioned with manufacturer-authorized parts and detailed before being presented to the public.

They receive a 90-day/4,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty,1 with 90 days of complimentary roadside assistance.1 With this vehicle, other warranties are also available, including extended Comprehensive Limited Warranty Coverage lasting 12 months or 12,000 miles1 and 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty Coverage.1

Vehicles that pass a 172-point inspection, as well as other qualifications, can become Gold Certified vehicles. All of the available warranties1 mentioned in the last category come automatically, and you receive seven years of complimentary roadside assistance.1 To learn more about how vehicles get recruited into either category or how the warranties can be applied, talk to one of our team members, who will provide precise, straightforward answers.

What's Exciting About Our Ford Certified Pre-Owned Inventory?

Many people are drawn to used Ford certified cars because Ford certified pre-owned financing usually comes with more competitive monthly rates than buying the same model as a new car. On the flip side, they are often newer vehicles with less mileage than all used vehicles without this distinction. This can provide you with the best of both worlds.

You are still likely to find the modern amenities that you care about the most. For example, the car might have a power liftgate, USB ports for charging your devices, or a rearview camera for easy parking. Plus, its relative youth means it likely has several years ahead of it that it can spend with you, increasing the value of your investment.

The thorough inspection process that CPO vehicles undergo ensures that the automobiles in question were well-maintained by their previous owner. In addition, any repairs or maintenance needed is performed using OEM parts, state-of-the-art equipment, and factory-approved techniques. The warranties help back up Ford's word of their quality by ensuring you can get covered parts or systems fixed if something goes wrong without cost to you.
