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 120,000 km 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.153
What areas are included in the 172-point inspection?
- Vehicle history
- Road test
- Exterior/Interior appearance and condition
- Underhood/Underbody components

What happens when an item does not pass inspection?
