Our Ford certified pre-owned vehicles are part of the Ford Blue Advantage program. These models are different from your traditional used car, as they take away a lot of the risk that comes with investing in an older vehicle.

Forget any concerns you had regarding the longevity of your car or whether its major components will need repairing; our Ford certified pre-owned vehicles come with mind-easing added protection. Learn more about Ford Blue Advantage and its included inspections and warranty when you keep reading.

What Is the Ford Blue Advantage?

The Ford Blue Advantage program separates our certified used Ford models into two categories: Blue Certified and Gold Certified. They carry different benefits and eligibility requirements, but both certification programs give you a vehicle that is better than a typical used car.

One key difference is that a Blue Certification requires vehicles to have less than 120,000 miles, whereas a Gold Certified model must have less than 80,000 miles. The level of certification also determines what additional benefits a buyer will receive. Be sure to explore the finer details of the Ford Blue Advantage program below before picking out a car, truck, or SUV from our collection of Ford certified pre-owned vehicles.

Inspections and Repairs Are Mandatory

Whether you decide to go with a Blue Certified or Gold Certified model, the car you buy is refurbished to its former glory with the help of a detail-oriented inspection and repairs made with manufacturer-authorized parts.

However, the thoroughness of the inspection does vary depending on the vehicle you buy. A Blue Certified model undergoes a 139-point examination, while certified technicians look over 172 points of a Gold Certified car. Finally, they inspect the CARFAX® vehicle history report for discrepancies or significant prior damage.

Benefits Come Standard

A thorough inspection isn't the only benefit of buying one of our Ford certified pre-owned vehicles. Customers get several additional perks with their purchase, including a warranty, FordPass™ Rewards points, SiriusXM® trial, and roadside assistance. Combine these with the refurbished model you desire, and you'll end up with a used Ford car that lasts a lifetime and comes as a stress-free purchase. See the table below for more information.
