Ford Certified Pre-Owned FAQs

Ford Explorer Silver

Congratulations! You’ve decided to give your Lewisville, Frisco, The Colony, and Denton, TX, travels a much-deserved commute by purchasing a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle from Ford. Beyond having access to an American-made vehicle that’s built to handle whatever comes its way, you gain access to several CPO-exclusive benefits.

To help you learn more, the team at Sam Pack’s Five Star Ford of Lewisville has compiled a list of Ford certified pre-owned FAQs. Read on to learn more!

What Is Certified Pre-Owned?

Certified pre-owned is like the best of both words when discussing new and pre-owned Ford models. CPO vehicles are the bridge that connects these two categories since, like pre-owned models, CPO cars have been owned and operated by at least one previous driver.

They’re like new cars because they’re outfitted with manufacturer parts and have been determined by a professional that they run and operate like a model that just rolled off the factory line.

Why Are There Two CPO Programs With Ford?

Ford believes that everyone should have access to their dream model. That’s why they created two different CPO programs: Gold Certified and Blue Certified.

Each program comes with their own set of warranty coverage. Similarly, both programs come with a 14-day/1,000-mile Money Back Guarantee as well as 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

What Benefits Come With Blue Certified?

Blue Certified is the CPO program open to any vehicle that’s less than 10 years old and has less than 120,000 miles clocked on the odometer.

Before becoming certified, it also must pass a 139-point inspection performed by a trailed technician. This inspection checks various aspects of your vehicle, like interior/exterior, mechanical parts, structure, and more. A road test is also performed to ensure the vehicle offers a smooth commute.

Once a Ford becomes Blue Certified, it gains advantages like:

  • 90-day/4,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
  • 11,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points

These points can be used toward the vehicle’s first maintenance visit.

What Benefits Come With Gold Certified?

Gold Certified is the CPO program open to any vehicle that’s less than six years old and has fewer than 80,000 miles clocked on the odometer.

Similar to Blue Certified, Gold Certified models must also pass a rigorous inspection. This 172-point inspection with Gold Certified checks various aspects of your vehicle while adding seven extra checks during the road test, five extra underbody locations, and more.

Once a Ford becomes Gold Certified, it gains advantages like:

  • 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
  • 22,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points

The purpose of these points is to assist with the first two maintenance visits of your Ford vehicle.
