Our Ford Certified Pre-Owned models: Well beyond ordinary used cars

If you're shopping for a used car, truck or SUV, you may be concerned about finding one you can count on. At Woodhams Ford in South Haven, MI, there's a much better alternative to buying just a "used car." Buy a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Ford at our dealership. While most used cars provide little assurance of real quality, our Ford CPO models have passed an unusually tough inspection and come with outstanding warranties.

Our Ford CPO vehicles offer two levels of assurance

You can choose either of two tiers of Certified Pre-Owned excellence and Ford Gold Certified is the gold standard. Our Ford Blue Certified Pre-Owned models come with a more affordable price tag and yet they still offer you higher quality - and better protection - than conventional used cars. Both are well worthing shopping for, so here's a brief look at the differences.

Ford Gold Certified: The best in pre-owned transportation

Just to be considered for this highest tier in our CPO program a pre-owned Ford must be six years old or newer with less than 80,000 miles. For the few vehicles who get beyond that threshhold, the next step is a rigorous examination. Potential Ford CPO models have to pass an uncompromising 172-point inspection. A Ford factory-trained technician checks key points all over to see if the car meets our exacting standards.

When a Ford is Gold-Certified, you're covered by a major warranty

Cars who pass the test and become our Ford Gold-Certified Pre-Owned vehicles then come with a remarkable powertrain warranty. It extends the original Ford new vehicle warranty up to 7-years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Any covered repairs are done with zero deductible, making this even more exceptional coverage. Our Gold Certified CPO models also come with a comprehensive warranty for up to 12 months or 12,000 miles.

What's included in our 172-point Ford CPO inspection

Our Ford service professional examines every Ford CPO candidate vehicle in the critical component areas, including the engine and transmission. He will check the suspension and inspect the brakes, brake lining, pads and rotors. He will carefully examine the inside, checking the integrity of the upholstery for excessive rips or tears. He'll test the vehicle's steering, handling and overall safety - even checking the windshield wiper fluid level.

Ford Blue Certified: More affordable vehicles still backed by warranties

A pre-owned Ford can be considered for our Ford Blue Certified program when it's in excellent condition, less than 10 years old and has been driven less than 120,000 miles. In this second tier, these pre-owned Ford trucks, SUVs and sedans must pass a 139-point inspection with the same kind of rigor as our Gold Certified models. Those who pass get a 90-day/4,000-mile comprehensive warranty.

Additional features in both our Gold and Blue Certified vehicles

Both Ford Certified Pre-Owned levels provide Ford CPO owners with a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report to give you an insightful look at the car's history. You can see any service or maintenance that was reported to CARFAX and confirm the authenticity of the vehicle's ownership history. Both levels also give owners in Paw Paw MI and Harbor, MI the comfort of 24/7 roadside assistance that's available when you're on the road.
