172-Point Inspection

It takes more than a cursory glance at a vehicle to determine whether it has what it takes to be deemed worthy of certification. To earn the title, a Ford model must pass a 172-point inspection that carefully examines its major and minor components including exterior and interior parts and systems. Repairs are made where needed, but irreparable issues prevent a vehicle from earning certification. This detailed inspection includes:

  • Vehicle history: A vehicle background check is performed to make note of how well a Ford model was maintained, how many previous owners it had, where it was owned, what it was used for (regarding personal use versus commercial use), and other important details.
  • Interior and exterior inspection: Ford-certified technicians subject a vehicle to an inspection to make sure that said vehicle is in excellent condition inside and out. This includes lights, wiper blades, upholstery, door handles, door locks, and a long list of other components to make sure everything works as it should.
  • Underhood and underbody inspection: Models are checked to make sure vital systems like the engine, transmission, cooling system, electrical components, and other integral features work properly.
  • Road test: Ford models can't just look good on paper. They must also perform well on the open road to earn the right to be called a Certified Pre-Owned Ford.

Limited Warranty Coverage

Certified Pre-Owned Ford models offer manufacturer-backed benefits including a variety of warranties, so you can have extra peace of mind as you move forward with your purchase. We encourage you to visit our dealership for further details!

  • Transferable Warranty Coverage: Limited warranty coverage on the engine and transmission is fully-transferable to the next owner.

Vehicle History Report

A pre-owned model can't become Ford-certified unless it passes a history check. This check verifies a vehicle's age, mileage, and identifies any potential problems. If a vehicle is no more than six years old and has under 80,000 miles on the odometer, it passes the first round. Next, a comprehensive CARFAX Vehicle History Report is run to make sure that everything in a vehicle's past aligns with our standards of quality.
