CARFAX® Vehicle History Report

To become Ford-certified, a pre-owned vehicle has to be less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. A CARFAX Vehicle History Report is then run to identify any issues that don’t meet our standards. Areas checked include:

• Flood vehicles
• Fire damage
• Frame damage
• Salvage vehicles
• Branded title
• Odometer issues
• Accident history
• Vehicle title history

In addition, you can view the actual vehicle history report for a specific vehicle by simply searching our current inventory now. Or ask your dealer for a copy when you arrive at the dealership.

Value of Ownership

There’s added value to a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. For example, each one includes both comprehensive limited warranty coverage and powertrain limited warranty coverage backed by Ford Motor Company. Every vehicle also goes through a rigorous 172-point inspection by Ford factory-trained dealer technicians. Any part(s) that doesn’t meet our standards is replaced with a Ford factory-authorized part. And then there’s the complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance. Considering all that you get, buying a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a great investment.

24-Hour Roadside Assistance

It’s 2:00 a.m., it’s snowing, and you just got a flat. No problem. Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with complimentary roadside assistance available 24/7, 365 days a year. Areas of coverage include:

• Towing assistance of up to $100 for warranty and non-warranty problems, including accidents (excludes impound and repossession)
• Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500, for up to three days’ lodging, meals and rental vehicle for travel expenses accrued when the breakdown occurs more than 100 miles from home
• Destination expense assistance of up to $75 for emergency transportation to the immediate destination
• Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for up to five days
• Fuel delivery if the vehicle runs out of fuel — up to two gallons at no charge
• Flat-tire changes on site
• Jump starts for dead batteries
• Lockout assistance of up to $50 to unlock vehicle doors
• Service throughout the 50 United States and Canada
