Ford Used Cars in Shorewood, IL vs. Certified Pre-Owned
Ford used cars, and CPO cars are comparable in most respects, especially in terms of quality and reliability. Both types of Ford vehicle categories consist of late-model vehicles with an average mileage of 10,000 to 12,000 miles. Some used cars may have more than this, as much as twice.
All Ford used cars come with an AutoCheck vehicle history report to confirm there are no major incidents or associated problems. Used models may or may not receive cosmetic updates disclosed in detail by the dealership.
With Ford CPO, the certification confirms that each featured Ford vehicle first undergoes a 172-point inspection entailing a comprehensive road test, an inspection of the interior and exterior features, and a tweak of underhood, underbody and diagnostic systems. Specially trained techs also review each vehicle’s history of incidents and scheduled maintenance completed.
A 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty covers more than 1,000 vehicle components, while a 7-year/100,00-mile powertrain limited warranty covers engine repair, transmissions and more.
The program includes an extensive Carfax vehicle history report. Ford CPO vehicle owners also receive 24-hour roadside assistance. It encompasses towing assistance as needed as well as car rental reimbursement and aid with, or reimbursement of, travel and destination expenses.
Jumpstarts, fuel delivery, and flat tire changes are also part of roadside assistance, ensuring you never run out of options if your CPO Ford encounters any issues down the line.
