Can any Ford vehicle be certified?

No. 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. It then has to pass a rigorous 172-point inspection. A CARFAX® Vehicle History Report is also run to identify any vehicle that does not meet our strict standards.

Who certifies these vehicles?

Ford factory-trained dealer technicians go through each vehicle, performing a rigorous 172-point inspection, including obtaining a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report. Any part(s) that doesn't meet our standards is replaced with a factory-authorized part. For added peace of mind, each vehicle comes with comprehensive limited warranty coverage and powertrain limited warranty coverage backed by Ford Motor Company.*
