Used and Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles might seem similar at first glance, but they're very different. While used cars are typically sold as-is, CPO vehicles come backed with a long list of manufacturer-provided benefits.

Used vs CPO

A used car's low price can be enticing, especially for college students on a stringent budget. While that used car might save you money now, it could cost thousands due to unforeseen problems. A Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, on the other hand, costs a little more, but offers peace of mind.

·         172-Point Inspection - In order to enter the Ford CPO program, a vehicle must undergo a rigorous 172-point inspection. If a part is deemed unacceptable, it's replaced by a trained Ford technician.

·         Vehicle History Report - All Ford CPO vehicles come with a Vehicle History Report. The report lists past service intervals, repairs, damage, and much more.

·         Special Financing Rates - Many buyers do not understand that a high financing rate and long loan periods are a recipe for thousands of wasted dollars in interest payments. Ford CPO models come with special financing rates that ensure less money is lost.

Benefits of Buying Certified Pre-Owned

Buying a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle isn't quite like buying any other vehicle. A used car has to meet several important requirements and jump through hoops to enter the CPO program. Once a car is registered for the program, drivers will enjoy any number of benefits provided by Ford Motor Company.

·         Comprehensive Coverage - Not every automaker will back their CPO vehicles with a comprehensive warranty, but Ford isn't every automaker. All Ford CPO models come with a standard 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive warranty.

·         Powertrain Coverage - While many automakers do offer powertrain coverage, not many can match Ford's quality guarantee. All Ford CPO vehicles feature a manufacturer-backed seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

·         24/7 Roadside Assistance - Getting a flat tire on the way to and from college can be a hassle, especially at night. Fortunately, all Ford CPO models come with complimentary 24/7 roadside assistance.
