Why You Might Want to Buy a Certified Pre-Owned Ford Vehicle

Ford has made high-quality vehicles that drivers love for many years. The rising cost of new vehicles has forced many drivers into buying used vehicles. Buying a good used vehicle can be difficult because you may not know what you're getting. Ford understands this problem and has found the perfect solution in its certified pre-owned (CPO) program.

The CPO program, which offers many vehicle options, offers drivers in or around Sussex, NJ a convenient and cost-effective way to buy a vehicle they can trust. If you're in or near town, stop in to check out the many CPO Ford vehicles we have and learn more about the CPO program.

Certified Pre-Owned Standards from Ford

Not every Ford on our lot is a CPO Ford. Before the car, truck or SUV can be certified, it must meet certain standards set by Ford. These standards are designed to assure drivers that they're getting a very good vehicle. To be eligible for the CPO program, the vehicles must have fewer than 80,000 miles and not be older than five years. We do a genuine Carfax vehicle history report to ensure the title is clear and that we know the vehicle's history. Drivers from Lake Hopatcong to Vernon, NJ that buy a CPO Ford get a copy of the Carfax report.

Once the vehicle satisfies these requirements, it's put through a road test and a very thorough inspection. The inspection covers almost every area possible, including engine, electrical, transmission, brake system, AC and heat, high tech, audio, wheel drives, etc. If the vehicle does not pass, it cannot become certified. If possible, the vehicle is repaired or reconditioned by certified Ford technicians using genuine Ford parts.

CPO Options from Ford

Ford offers two levels of certification: blue certification and gold certification. Both the blue and gold certifications have many of the same requirements for certification. The main difference between the two levels is the inspection and the warranty coverage. Ford vehicles in the blue certification must pass a 139-point inspection, while those in the gold certification must pass a 172-point inspection.

Ford vehicles that are blue certified come with a 4,000 mile or 90-day warranty and free roadside assistance. CPO Ford vehicles that are gold-certified come with a 12,000 mile or 12-month warranty and a powertrain warranty good for 100,000 miles or seven years. Potential buyers in or near Sussex, NJ are encouraged to come to Nielsen Ford of Sussex to learn more about the different inspections, so they know what they're getting.

Advantages of CPO Vehicles

There are several advantages to buying CPO vehicles. They've passed a rigid inspection, so you know they're in good condition. Unlike many other used vehicles, CPO vehicles come with a warranty. Because they're late-model vehicles with low miles, they should last a long time. CPO vehicles are much cheaper than new models, so you're saving thousands of dollars. The vehicles may be used, but they're in excellent condition and look brand new.
