Ford Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Extended For Rival Brands

Back in early 2021, Ford Blue Advantage officially launched as an all-new certified pre-owned vehicle marketplace, right smack in the middle of the global pandemic. It capitalized on the fact that new vehicle inventory was at all-time lows and used vehicles were hot commodities as a result, giving consumers what was basically the next-best thing – CPO vehicles that were nearly new in a sense. That program has since expanded to include EVs, and now, Ford has made yet another notable change to its fairly new CPO program.

Unlike a lot of other CPO programs out there, Ford Blue Advantage offers a comprehensive limited warranty of three months or 4,000 miles for not only Ford-branded vehicles, but also, those from other brands. Previously, that warranty ran alongside the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty, but according to a dealer bulletin recently seen by CarsDirect, competitor vehicles will now come with a three-month, 4,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty that begins when the new vehicle limited warranty ends, or the signature date of the vehicle purchase – whichever comes last.

To be eligible for this new warranty coverage under the Ford Blue Advantage Certified Blue program, vehicles must come from an eligible brand, however, a list that currently includes Ford, Buick, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, GMC, Honda, Jeep, Mazda, Nissan, Ram, Subaru, and Toyota.

Ford Blue Certified vehicles must pass a 139-point inspection to earn that status, but can’t be more than 10 years old or have more than 150,000 miles. Those that purchase one also get a handful of additional perks that include not only the beefed-up warranty coverage noted here, but also, a 14-day, 1,000-mile money back guarantee, 24/7 roadside assistance, and 11,000 FordPass points, which can be used toward the new owner’s first maintenance visit.
