Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Learn About the Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Here at Jones Ford we know buying a used car can sometimes be difficult, that's why we proudly offer our line up of Certified Pre-Owned Ford vehicles. The Ford Certified Pre-Owned program takes the risk out of buying a previously owned vehicle. Driving a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle means driving with the knowledge and confidence that your vehicle has been thoroughly inspected and comes with manufacturer-backed limited warranty coverage. When you buy Ford Certified you also get special low APRs, flexible terms, special programs and a wide range of financing options through Ford Credit that may not be available on other used cars for sale.

In order for a vehicle to earn the honor of becoming a Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle it must be less than six model years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. Then before we certify any Ford pre-owned vehicle, it must first pass a rigorous 172 point-by-point exam.

172 Point


Every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle must undergo a rigorous 172 point inspection. This inspection ensures that every vehicle that is Ford Certified is one of the best used cars on the road. These 172 points are broken down into 8 categories:
  • Road Test
  • Vehicle Exterior
  • Vehicle Interior
  • Vehicle Diagnostics
  • Underhood
  • Hybrid/Elecrtic Components
    (If applicable)
  • Underbody
  • Convenience
If there are inspection items that the vehicle does not pass on, it is either fixed by Factory-trained technicians using only new Ford Motorcraft® or Ford Authorized Remanufactured Parts or the car cannot become certified.

Warranty Coverage


In addition to the 172-point inspection, every Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with a comprehensive limited warranty covering more than 1000 components for 12 months/12,000 miles. Areas of coverage include:
  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-wheel Drive
  • Front-wheel Drive
  • Steering Components
  • Brakes
  • Front & Rear Suspension
  • Electrical System
  • AC & Heating
  • Technology Components
  • Emissions Components
  • Factory Audio System
  • Safety System
In addition to all of the above items you also get a 7 year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty for your Ford CPO vehicle.

CARFAX Vehicle
History Report


To become Ford-certified, a pre-owned vehicle has to be less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. A CARFAX Vehicle History Report is then run to identify any issues that don't meet our standards. Areas checked include:
  • Flood Vehicles
  • Fire Damage
  • Frame Damage
  • Salvage Vehicles
  • Branded Title
  • Odometer Issues
  • Accident History
  • Vehicle Title History
