Certified Pre-Owned Program Benefits

To qualify for Certified Pre-Owned status, each used Ford must be less than six model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. Then before we certify any Ford pre-owned vehicle, it must first pass a rigorous 172 point-by-point exam.

All our Certified Pre-Owned vehicles come with extensive warranty coverage* and 24-hour roadside assistance. And to top it off, we provide a full tank of gas, new wiper blades, and fresh oil and filter at delivery.

Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with peace-of-mind warranty coverage. Our comprehensive limited warranty covers more than 500 components for 12 months/12,000 miles.* Our fully transferable powertrain limited warranty covers you for 7 years/100,000 miles.'

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:

  • Engine

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 us about this program.

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.

CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED 172-POINT INSPECTIONIf a pre-owned vehicle is less than 6 model years old and has less than 80,000 actual miles on the odometer, then it's eligible to undergo our demanding 172-point Quality Check inspection process. On Ford F-Series trucks and E-Series vans, only vehicles up through the 350 series are eligible for certification; 450 series and higher are ineligible.

Anything found to be below standards or deficient is repaired or replaced using only genuine Motorcraft® replacement parts. Only vehicles that pass this rigorous inspection become Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicles.

The 172-Point Inspection is divided into the following four categories:

1.       Amenities - These are a vehicle's numerous functional components outside of the drivetrain and chassis, including comfort, convenience and safety features.

2.       Chassis - A vehicle's chassis refers to all the components of the suspension, steering, and braking systems attached to the frame. Tires are also included.

3.       Quality - This general category covers everything related to the appearance of a vehicle, specifically the important areas of fit and finish such as sheet metal and upholstery.

4.       Powertrain - This category contains all the hardware and functional components related to the engine, transmission and driveline.


Whichever road you travel in a Ford vehicle, trust that help is coming soon with our 24-hour roadside assistance program. Roadside assistance is part of our powertrain limited-warranty coverage, which means you're automatically covered for 7 years / 100,000 miles from the original in-service date. That's 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in case of breakdown, blowout, bad weather, anything.

Plus, if you have trouble far from home, Ford CPO gives you the added benefit of a 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.
