Certified Pre-Owned

Ford Certified Pre-Owned Program

Our Ford Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles come with a 172-point inspections, a CARFAX Vehicle History Report, a complimentary 24-Hour Roadside Assistance, and features comprehensive limited warranty coverage and powertrain limited warranty coverage. 
Why buy Certified Pre-Owned?

When you buy a CPO certified vehicle, you're taking the risk out of buying a used vehicle. You'll have knowledge of the full workings  of your vehicle after going through our 172-point inspection and every CPO vehicle comes with manufacturer-backed limited-warranty coverage. That's peace of mind that you can actually buy.
