    Vehicle History Report: Great Past, Even Better Future


    Not every vehicle can make the cut as a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.  To even be considered for certification, each Ford must be less than 6 model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. 

    After a vehicle has been determined as eligible in terms of age and mileage, an independent third-party vehicle history report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet our strict standards.  The report is run as part of our 172-point inspection process, and it includes check for:

    • 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. 

    Cost of Ownership


    Let's say you find a "deal" in the paper on a used car model you've had your eye on.  One with a price too good to pass up; so instead of getting a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you buy something else.  But did this vehicle include a rigorous 172-point inspection?  A vehicle history?  Comprehensive and powertrain limited warranties?  24-hour roadside assistance and other benefits?  It doesn't take long for non-covered repairs and other expenses to eat away whatever money you saved.  When it comes to long-term total cost of ownership, Ford CPO vehicles might well end up costing you less.  Maybe a lot less.  And it's hard to put a price on the peace of mind that comes with driving a vehicle inspected and backed by Ford.
