Benefits of Buying Ford Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles

Most buyers in the market for a new vehicle instantly gravitate towards those that reside in new car inventories, which make sense as a brand-new car, truck or SUV seems to be the most fool-proof way of getting a quality vehicle. There are some other options out there however, and they are known as Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. When you buy a Certified Pre-Owned, you essentially get all of the advantages of a new car such as an extended warranty, but at a price that is significantly more affordable.

In order for a Ford to be eligible for the program, the vehicle must less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles, but those are just the stipulations for inclusion in the program.

If a vehicle meets the aforementioned criteria, it is given a 172-point inspection to ensure that absolutely everything is working the way that it’s supposed to. Certified technicians look over the powertrain, chassis, amenities and the overall condition of the vehicle. If there are parts beyond repair, they are replaced with identical, genuine Ford parts, but if the vehicle is beyond repair, it is instantly disqualified for certification.

Another one of the benefits of buying a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is that it comes with a few things to help ensure that it lasts well into the future. All vehicles come with 24-hour roadside assistance in the rare event that something goes wrong, and once you get the vehicle to the nearest Ford dealership to get the repairs you need, you’re covered by a seven-year, 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. It doesn’t get much better than that.

With so many advantages, it’s really no surprise that a growing number of Kansas City area residents are choosing to buy a Certified Pre-Owned Ford vehicle over a new one.
