Certified Ford Program Overview

There is no doubt that buying a used vehicle comes with a risk. However, a Certified Pre-Owned Ford takes the risk out of buying a previously owned vehicle. Owning and driving a Certified Pre-Owned Ford means that you'll be driving a vehicle with the knowledge and confidence that your purchase has been thoroughly inspected and comes with a manufacturer-backed limited warranty coverage. Each Certified Ford comes with a 12-month / 12,000 mile comprehensive limited warranty coverage and a 7-year / 100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty coverage.

The Comprehensive Limited Warranty Coverage more than 1000 components with areas of coverage including:

  • Engine and Transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive and Front-wheel drive
  • Steering components
  • Brakes
  • Front and rear suspension
  • Electrical system
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • Technology components
  • Emissions components
  • Factory-installed audio system
  • Safety systems

The Powertrain Limited Warranty Coverage covers the engine, transmission and more:

  • Transferable to future owners at no extra cost
  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance (towing, jump starts for dead batteries, flat-tire changes on-site and lockout services) is included for the duration of the powertrain limited warranty coverage
  • Ford Extended Service Plans, which offer additional coverage, are available from any Ford or Lincoln Dealer

Ford Certified Used Car Features


To be even considered for Ford's Certified Pre-Owned Program, a used Ford must be current or five previous model years old and have less than 80,000 miles. Following that, a used Ford goes under a 172-Point Inspection checklist before being called Certified. The areas covered by the inspection include:

  • Vehicle history, including scheduled maintenance, performed
  • Comprehensive road test
  • Exterior and interior features inspected
  • Underhood, underbody and diagnostic system

The inspection is completed by factory-trained technicians that also recondition any component that does not meet program standards. If any component needs to be replaced, it is replaced with only new Ford Motorcraft® or Ford Authorized Replacement parts.

24-hour Roadside Assistance

Owning a Certified Pre-Owned Ford means that you'll also receive 24-hour attention. Roadside assistance is offered for the full duration of the Limited Warranty Coverage. That's 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in case of a breakdown, blowout or bad weather. The 24-hour Roadside Assistance includes:

  • Towing assistance rental car reimbursement (up to $30 per day for up to five days if the vehicle requires overnight mechanical repairs).
  • Destination expense assistance of up to $75 to cover the emergency cost of a taxi, shuttle or rental car to get to your destination.
  • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 for up to three days of lodging, meals and rental vehicle.
  • Fuel delivery if you run out of gas, flat tire changes, jump starts and more.
