We’re pleased to find out that Ford has added a Carfax vehicle history report to all certified vehicles to help consumers with problem credit. Carfax is a web service that supplies vehicle history reports to consumers and businesses on used cars and trucks. Ford announced that along with Carfax, it would provide Carfax Vehicle History Reports for Ford and Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs. Since January 1st 2013, Ford has provided a free vehicle history report from Carfax for every Ford and Lincoln certified pre-owned vehicle.
According to John Felice, general manager of Ford and Lincoln Sales, “As sales of our new products continue to grow, so will the demand for high-quality, low-mileage pre-owned Ford and Lincoln vehicles. That’s why we work very closely with our dealers to invest in our CPO program and make it even more competitive.”
Certified used Fords must pass a 172 point inspection and are all backed by a 1-year/12,000 mile warranty. Lincoln certified pre-owned cars must pass a 200-point inspection and are backed by a six-year/100,000 mile warranty. Buyers under these certified programs also get 24-hour roadside assistance.
