Ford Certified Pre-Owned Information


Ford CPO Program


There are added benefits to choosing a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle over a used Ford vehicle. With Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, peace of mind comes with a 172-point inspection, 24-Hour Roadside Assistance, vehicle history report, powertrain limited warranty and comprehensive limited warranty coverage.*


172-Point Inspection


If a vehicle doesn't meet our strict criteria, we won't certify it. It's that simple. Find out what we check during the rigorous process of certifying a pre-owned vehicle. It's a meticulous process backed by Ford Motor Company.

Warranty Coverage


Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty coverage* including more than 500 components PLUS 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty coverage.*


Powertrain Warranty


Peace of mind comes standard on every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle since each includes 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty coverage,* backed by Ford Motor Company. Areas of coverage include the engine, transmission and more.

Our manufacturer-backed limited warranty is fully transferable to future owners at no cost, a resale benefit that can be transferred from owner to owner.

For extra peace of mind, 24/7 roadside assistance (towing, jump starts for dead batteries, flat-tire changes on-site, and lockout services) is included for the duration of the powertrain limited warranty coverage.

Want additional coverage? Ask your dealer about Ford Extended Service Plans. Service available at any Ford or Lincoln Mercury Dealership nationwide.

*See your dealer for limited-warranty coverage details.

Comprehensive Warranty


We've ensured your peace of mind with our comprehensive limited warranty. The warranty covers more than 500 components, including many high-tech parts. Areas of coverage include:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-wheel Drive
  • Front-wheel Drive
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Front and rear suspension
  • Electrical
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • High-tech
  • Emissions
  • Ford audio
  • Safety

The Ford Certified Pre-Owned comprehensive limited warranty provides coverage for 12 months or 12,000 miles from the Certified Pre-Owned vehicle purchase date, whichever comes first. You can choose to extend your comprehensive limited warranty past 12 months or 12,000 miles by purchasing a Ford Extended Service Plan. Ask your dealer.


24-Hour Roadside Assistance


Complimentary roadside assistance is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Available services include:

  • Towing assistance of up to $100 for warranty and non-warranty problems, including accidents (excludes impound and repossession)
  • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500, for up to 3 days lodging, meals and rental vehicle for travel expenses accrued when the breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home
  • Destination expense assistance of up to $75 for emergency transportation to the immediate destination
  • Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for up to 5 days
  • Fuel delivery if the vehicle runs out of fuel — up to 2 gallons at no charge
  • Flat-tire changes on site
  • Jump starts for dead batteries
  • Lockout assistance of up to $50 to unlock vehicle doors
  • Service throughout the 50 United States and Canada


Vehicle History Report


Feel confident when you get behind the wheel of your Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle with this informative, full history report.

Not every vehicle can make the cut as a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. To even be considered for certification, each Ford must be less than 6 model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer.

In addition, you can view the actual Vehicle History Report for a specific vehicle by simply searching our current inventory now. Or ask your dealer for a copy when you arrive at the dealership.

After a vehicle has been determined as eligible in terms of age and mileage, an independent third-party vehicle history report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet our strict standards. The report is run as a part of our 172-point inspection process, and it includes checks for:

  • Flood Vehicles
  • Fire Damage
  • Frame Damage
  • Salvage Vehicles
  • Branded Title
  • Odometer Issues
  • Accident History
  • Vehicle Title History


Low Cost of Ownership


Let's say you find a "deal" in the paper on a used car model you've had your eye on. One with a price too good to pass up; so instead of getting a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you buy something else. But did this vehicle include a rigorous 172-point inspection? A vehicle history? Comprehensive and powertrain limited warranties? 24-hour roadside assistance and other benefits? It doesn't take long for non-covered repairs and other expenses to eat away whatever money you saved. When it comes to long-term total cost of ownership, Ford CPO vehicles might well end up costing you less. Maybe a lot less. And it's hard to put a price on the peace of mind that comes with driving a vehicle inspected and backed by Ford.
