The Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Pre-Owned Value Awards

While owning a new car, with all the latest bells and whistles, is an exhilarating experience, there are those times when the budget just doesn’t allow for the latest and greatest on the lot of your Southern California Ford Dealership. This is where Ford Certified's Pre-Owned program comes in.

Only the Best

According to a recent AutoData report, certified used car sales are up four percent to almost 8,600 cars every day. Unlike other automakers Ford’s certified pre-owned cars offer their buyers peace of mind that they're not just inheriting somebody else's problems with a cheap used car.

Before you hit the road in a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, we put every car, truck, SUV and crossover to the test. Only the vehicles that pass our 172-point inspection become Ford Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles. This inspection includes everything from checking the frame and body panels for prior accident damage to making sure the brakes and tires have sufficient life left in them.

Most models are former leases that are turned in at the end of their term and sold off to Ford dealerships in closed auctions. Each vehicle must be less than six-years-old and have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer.

Benefits of Owning a Pre-Owned Ford in Southern California

In addition to the peace of mind that is given by knowing that your pre-owned vehicle is receiving the same care that an all-new vehicle would, each Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with other benefits, including:

  • Warranty - In addition to 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty coverage, every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle also comes with 7-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty coverage.
  • Roadside Assistance – Unlike owning a pre-owned vehicle from a used car lot, Ford’s Pre-Owned Certified Program offers roadside assistance for the full duration of the Limited Warranty Coverage.
  • Vehicle History Report – When you purchase a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, as part of the 172-point inspection process, a Vehicle History Report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet Ford Certified Pre-Owned standards.

Warranty Coverage

Combined with the original Ford New-Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, Ford’s Certified Pre-Owned Comprehensive Limited Warranty coverage is provided for 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first) from the expiration of the Ford New-Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty or the date of your Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Purchase, whichever comes later. The Ford Certified Pre-Owned Powertrain Limited Warranty provides coverage for seven years from the original Ford New-Vehicle Limited Warranty start date or a total of 100,000 miles on the odometer, whichever comes first. Each Ford CPO vehicle has a standard deductible of only $100 for the Comprehensive and Powertrain Limited Warranty, so should repairs be necessary, your cost will be minimal.

Ford Credit

Along with purchasing a lower-cost Ford, your Southern California Ford Dealer also offers Ford Credit for each of our Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. Easily apply online in three easy steps and print your certificate to take straight to your dealership in order to save time and get you behind the wheel of your pre-owned Ford.
