Certified Pre-Owned Ford Models in Kingston, Ontario
If you’re looking for a safe and dependable Ford vehicle, you have options beyond simply new or used. Certified pre-owned Ford vehicles help people experience the quality and expansive standard features of a Ford car, truck, van or SUV every day that’s backed by Ford and at a lower price than a new model. Certified pre-owned Ford models (CPO) give you all the wonderful benefits of Ford with industry-leading peace of mind.
Whether you’re looking for the stylish and powerful, family-friendly four-door Fusion or the sporty and adventurous Ford Escape, you’ll find a recent-year model that includes the same certitude of quality and reliability you expect with a brand-new vehicle. By shopping CPO, you’re also able to make your money go even further, letting you upgrade features, trim levels or even models while staying in the same price area as a less-equipped new Ford vehicle and with the warranty and backing you just don’t get on a used Ford model.
Certified Pre-Owned Ford Criteria Makes All the Difference
To become a certified pre-owned Ford model, a vehicle must be no more than 5 model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles.
Once a pre-owned Ford vehicle has met this criterion, it must pass a rigorous 172-point inspection. This 172-point inspection checklist includes overall vehicle quality indicators like “Engine Starts and Idles Properly,” “Body and Suspension is Free of Squeaks and Rattles,” “Steers Normally,” and “Brakes/ABS Operate Properly.”
In addition to the vehicle’s road test, it also must pass an exterior and interior checklist that includes important items like “No Evidence of Flood, Fire, Major or Hail Damage” on the exterior and “Airbags” on the interior.
As Ford markets CPO vehicles like how they market new Ford vehicles, CPO models must also pass interior and exterior appearance and condition checklist items like “Interior Odor-Free,” “Seat Upholstery,” and “Windshield, Side and Rear-Window Glass Inspection.”
Once a vehicle has passed this comprehensive check list, it can become certified! Certification gives you more benefits than just a pretty car that has passed a checklist, it also provides drivers with a 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty, 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance, full vehicle history report, a full tank of gas, fresh oil/filter and new wiper blades and the ability to have your CPO Ford model serviced at any Ford or Lincoln dealer in Canada and the United States.
