At your local Ford used car dealer in West Chicago, you can discover and test-drive the outstanding late models that comprise the Ford Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) fleet. Today’s CPO Ford vehicles are a galaxy away from the used Ford cars our fathers drove to and from work. The CPO Ford program entails comprehensive quality assurances and an extensive certification process to ensure like-new quality at a used car price.
CPO Ford Certification: The Basics
Every potential candidate for the Ford CPO program must meet or exceed a set of stringent quality standards. Each vehicle must have a CARFAX Vehicle History Report attesting to structural and automotive standards established by Ford. The vehicle must be less than six years old and possess fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer.
Having met these criteria, the Ford vehicle in question undergoes a rigorous 172-point inspection. During the inspection, factory-trained Ford techs review, repair, and replace every major and minor component of the vehicle’s exterior, interior, underhood, and underbody.
The inspection includes special tests for hybrid and electric Ford models and convenience features on all models. The inspection begins and concludes with a road test with which Ford techs ensure that every single aspect of the candidate vehicle conforms to or exceeds Ford factory standards.
After Certification:The Perks
After certification, CPO Ford owners enjoy two warranties: comprehensive limited coverage of up to 1,000 components for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first; and a powertrain warranty covering engine and transmission components for seven years or 100,000 miles.
Beyond warranties, CPO Ford owners also enjoy free 24-hour roadside assistance throughout the United States and Canada. The assistance includes lockout up to $50, towing up to $100, travel expense reimbursement to $500, rental car reimbursement up to $30 daily as well as flat-tire changes, fuel, and lockout.
