Guide to Ford's Certified Pre-Owned Program

If you are thinking about purchasing a used vehicle from Ford, then you can't do better than purchasing one from the Ford Certified Pre-owned (CPO) program. The Ford CPO program makes sure that the Ford vehicle you purchase has gone through a rigorous testing procedure and is backed by the manufacturer for its efficiency and durability before being sent to a Ford dealership as part of the Ford CPO program.

You also get the added advantage of not having to pay higher interest rates when you purchase a Ford CPO car. Most used cars have higher interest rates than newer models, but the Ford Motor Company has made it so that cars that are backed by their Certified Pre-owned Program are fully transferable at no extra cost between owners, and you can even make use of Ford Credit to buy your new Ford CPO vehicle.

What is the Ford Certified Pre-owned Program and what benefits does it bring?

The Ford CPO program makes room for Ford vehicles that are not older than six years from the date when you are purchasing the vehicle, and whose mileage has not exceeded 100,000 miles from the date of the original purchase, to be fully restored and made available to potential buyers who are looking to buy used cars.

The biggest advantage you get when you buy a Ford Certified Pre-Owned Car is that you will be provided both with a comprehensive limited warranty, as well as a powertrain limited warranty. The comprehensive limited warranty covers everything from your car's engine to the drivetrains, brakes, transmission, and more. Since the original warranty is up to 7 years and 100,000 miles, you can continue to make use of the warranty when you purchase the vehicle. This also means that only vehicles that leave room for the next buyer to make use of the warranty are included in the Ford CPO program.

Before a vehicle can be certified as a part of Ford's program, specially assigned Ford technicians will put the vehicle through a 172-point inspection, where they check everything from the Vehicle's History Report to its diagnostics and more. If they find that certain parts are damaged, then they will be replaced by manufacturer backed parts before they can be a part of the Ford Certified Pre-owned Program.

Only when the car can be authentically backed by Ford Motor Company, will it be allowed to be a part of Ford's Certified Pre-owned Program. Only authorized Ford car dealerships can be a part of and sell Ford CPO vehicles.
