Find the Confidence and Coverage to Go Further in a Certified Pre-Owned Ford


A post shared by Ford Motor Company (@ford) on

When you shop for any used car, making sure you know what you’re getting into is key—especially if having confidence in the vehicle you’re paying for is a top priority, or if you’re shopping used for financial reasons. But while it isn’t possible to see the future with any vehicle, it’s still possible to purchase a new-to-you model and ease any worries you might have about longevity—shopping for a certified Ford!

What a Certified Ford Is, and What It Isn’t
We admit, there are a lot of misconceptions out there about what “certified pre-owned (CPO)” really means. In broader terms, it usually describes a car manufacturer program that sets up a rigid set of standards for quality, mileage, and long-term dependability. Along with thorough inspections and warranties, CPO models tend to average slightly higher in cost than a traditional “used” car, leading some to claim that they’re nothing more than “pre-owned cars with a special sticker.” That’s not the case with most programs, and from a value stand-point, definitely not what you find with a CPO Ford.

So what do you find? Perhaps it’s better to start with what you won’t: quality issues of any kind. Part of a certified Ford’s route to the lot includes passing a 172-point inspection that starts with obtaining and reviewing VIN status, pertinent recall information, and vehicle history, as well as performing any scheduled maintenance. Passing these items results in a road test, and a “CPO” sticker if it passes.
