Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds with a Certified Pre-Owned Ford in Jacksonville, IL, from Bob Ridings Westown Ford

The dilemma: wanting the performance and peace of mind of a new car, while also wanting to pay significantly less than the price of a new car. The answer: a certified pre-owned Ford near Beardstown from Bob Ridings Westown Ford!

The Definition of a Certified Pre-Owned Ford

All certified pre-owned Ford cars, trucks, and SUVs are, by definition, used cars. However, not all used Ford models are qualified to be certified pre-owned!

The requirements begin with being less than six years old, with fewer than 80,000 miles on the odometer. Those are just the prerequisites, however. The value in a certified pre-owned Ford near Pittsfield doesn't come from young age or low mileage. It comes from a Ford-mandated 172-point inspection!

From Used to Like-New in 172 Points

There's a lot that goes into the multipoint inspection for certified pre-owned Ford SUVs near Mount Sterling, IL, because the reward for passing is worth it. Every inch of the vehicle is inspected, including:

The exterior glass and mirrors
  • Body panels and doors for flood or fire damage
  • Exterior lights for cracks, chips, and operation
  • All interior components, including seat belts and airbags, air conditioning and heating, audio, signals, wiper blades, upholstery, and more.
  • A complete underhood and underbody inspection examining all major systems and components.
  • A road test to ensure proper operation of the engine, brakes, suspension, transmission, and all other systems.
  • Anything that doesn't pass is replaced with genuine Ford parts. Once all 172 items are crossed off the list, a used Ford officially becomes a certified pre-owned Ford!
