We also have a diverse inventory of certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles, but exactly what does certified pre-owned mean? Below, we explain what you will gain when you decide to drive one of our certified pre-owned Ford cars. Contact us today to start the car-buying process!

How Does a Car Become Certified?

When you see a vehicle on our lot with a certified label, you can be assured that the vehicle is in pristine condition-each of those vehicles must go through a 172-point inspection in order to become certified.

This comprehensive multipoint inspection lets our certified technicians thoroughly check each and every part of the car. They'll check to make sure the exterior is up to our high standard of quality, as is the underbody. Inside, they'll check the various components to make sure they're all in great condition as well.

We also run a diagnostic test and take the car out on a road test to truly test that the car's performance is still at its peak. All of this means that when you get behind the wheel of one of our certified pre-owned vehicles, you're getting a car for an affordable price with equally excellent performance.

Extra Coverage

Along with a car in top shape, we also provide extra peace of mind with your certified pre-owned Ford. Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle we offer comes with a 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty, which covers more than 500 different components from the engine, to the steering, to the interior technology features.

You'll also get a powertrain limited warranty that will cover you for seven years or 100,000 miles. This warranty provides coverage to the engine, transmission, and more.

On top of each of these warranties, our certified pre-owned Fords have another trick up their sleeves: 24/7 roadside assistance! If you happen to break down on the way to work, this service can give you a tow so you can get your car fixed and be back on your way. Our roadside assistance can even help change a flat tire, jump-start your battery, and unlock your door if you happen to get locked out.
