If you are in the market for a car or truck but also want to save a lot of money, a pre-owned vehicle is your solution. When shopping for your pre-owned vehicle, how can you know if you are really getting a good deal? How can you know that the money you save won't have to go into extensive repairs down the road? Certified pre-owned vehicles are backed by manufacturers and are available at competitive prices.
Certified Pre-Owned vs. Used Vehicles
If you want to be certain that you are making a smart investment on a quality used vehicle, be sure to choose a car, truck, or SUV that has been designated certified pre-owned. Unlike the average used car that you might buy from a private seller or dealer, a certified pre-owned car or truck undergoes a rigorous inspection. Any damaged or worn parts are replaced before the vehicle is put on the market. If you purchased a used car without this certification, you'll likely have to pay for this service yourself.
Certified pre-owned vehicles also come with an extended manufacturer's warranty, a limited bumper-to-bumper warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance, and other great benefits. For a non-certified used vehicle, the warranty is only transferable if it is still in effect, which is not always the case.
Ford Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles
When you buy a Ford certified pre-owned car or truck, you are investing in quality. Each vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection, be less than six years old, and have fewer than 80,000 miles. Its CARFAX history report must demonstrate that it has a clean title and that it meets Ford's high standards.
Additionally, every Ford certified pre-owned vehicle
comes with a 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty that
covers more than 1,000 components on the vehicle. Buyers also receive a
7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty with 24-hour roadside
assistance for the duration of the powertrain warranty.
