Starting February 2, 2012, the Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program just got better.
Each Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle goes through a rigorous (up to) 172-point inspection covering the powertrain, chassis, features and the overall condition of the vehicle. Each vehicle also comes with 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty coverage, a 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty, Roadside Assistance, a full tank of gas at delivery and a Vehicle History Report. A Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle must be under six model years old and can’t have more than 80,000 actual miles on the odometer.
If a vehicle doesn’t meet our strict criteria, we won’t certify it. It’s that simple.
Each vehicle must pass a rigorous (up to) 172 point-by-point inspection by Ford factory-trained technicians. Only those vehicles that pass can become Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.
Each Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle also undergoes a comprehensive mechanical reconditioning process during certification. To ensure the highest standard of quality is met, only new, Genuine Ford, Motorcraft® or Ford-authorized replacement parts are used during this reconditioning.
Relax, you’re covered.
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:
- Rear-wheel drive
- Front-wheel drive
- Air conditioning and heating
- Front suspension
- High-tech (hybrid, SYNC, etc.)
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.
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.
Coverage for the engine, transmission and more.
Service available at any Ford or Lincoln Dealership nationwide.
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.
We’re always here for you.
Wherever your travels take you, you’re never alone with Ford Motor Company’s 24-hour Roadside Assistance program.
Complimentary Roadside Assistance is provided for the duration of our powertrain limited warranty coverage, which means you’re automatically covered for 6 years or 100,000 miles from the original in-service date. That's 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all yearlong, in case of breakdown, blowout, bad weather, etc.
Our program even covers you for things that aren’t the car’s fault, such as if you run out of gas, lose your keys and more.
Roadside Assistance will:
- Mount your spare if you have a flat tire
- Jump start for dead batteries
- Unlock your vehicle if you are locked out (doesn’t include the cost of making spare keys)
- Bring you fuel if you run out, up to two gallons of gasoline or five gallons of diesel fuel at no charge
- Tow your disabled vehicle to the nearest qualified Ford or Lincoln Mercury Dealership within 35 miles
- Notify the police for you if you need assistance.
Plus, if you have trouble far from home, Ford Certified Pre-Owned gives you the additional benefits of:
- Travel expense reimbursement, worth up to $500, for up to three days of lodging, meals and rental vehicle if breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home.
- Destination expense assistance of up to $75 to cover the emergency cost of a taxi, shuttle or rental car to get you to your destination
- Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for up to five days if your vehicle requires overnight mechanical repairs
Roadside Assistance is available to you whenever you need it, throughout the 50 United States and Canada.
Vehicle History Report
Great past, even better future.
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 six model years old and have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer.
After a vehicle has been determined as eligible in terms of age and mileage, a 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
