Certified Pre-Owned Ford Dealership

Certified Pre-Owned is one of the best ways to buy a vehicle. You get something relatively new for a price that's well below the MSRP. There is basically no downside to buying a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. Why? Because it opens up a pathway to owning a quality Ford that not only works within your budget but also provides you with an amazing vehicle you've always wanted to own and drive. You can find that exact kind of vehicle at a Certified Pre-Owned Ford dealership such as DePaula Ford.

At our dealership, we provide a one-stop-shopping experience for all your needs when it comes to finding, financing, buying, and servicing your Certified Pre-Owned Ford. We have a wide number of different models available, from full-size pickups to SUVs. The options are varied, and the pricing is designed to accommodate your finances. This is one of the reasons why DePaula Ford is the best in the region, because we take you, as a customer, into consideration with every available service we offer, from our amazing sales staff to our high-quality inventory.

Ford Blue Certified vs Ford Gold Certified

Whether you go with a Ford Blue Certified or Ford Gold Certified vehicle, you're still buying a high-value used model that you won't find at just any dealership. Both types of Certified Pre-Owned offerings guarantee you the highest quality used vehicle on the market from Ford. If you're on a much stricter budget, you might go with a Ford Blue Certified vehicle, whereas if you're willing to pay a little more, you can get maximum quality and guaranteed long-term warranty coverage with the Ford Gold Certified vehicles.

So what's the difference between the two, and what are the benefits of going with Ford Blue Certified vs Ford Gold Certified? Well, the differences are dependent on what you want when it comes to warranty coverage, as well as the length in which the coverage lasts. You can see some of the differences below.

Ford Blue Certified:

  • 139-Point Inspection
  • 90-Day or 4,000 Mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
  • Complimentary 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • 11,000 FordPass Reward Points
  • CARFAX Vehicle History Report
  • 3-Month SiriusXM Satellite Radio Subscription
  • Manufacture-Authorized Parts Used for Reconditioning

Ford Gold Certified:

  • 172-Point Inspection
  • 12-Month or 12,000 Mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
  • 7-Year or 100,000 Mile Limited Powertrain Warranty
  • Complimentary 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • 22,000 FordPass Reward Points
  • CARFAX Vehicle History Report
  • 3-Month SiriusXM Satellite Radio Subscription
  • Manufacture-Authorized Parts Used For Reconditioning

In both cases, you have access to top-notch advantages over any other used vehicle depending on what kind of Certified Pre-Owned Ford you want. If you don't need all of the extra coverage but still want to benefit from roadside assistance, a CARFAX history report, and manufacturer-backed parts in the reconditioning process, then Ford Blue Certified is perfect. It covers all the basics while also offering you more guarantees than any other used vehicle out there. However, even if you do want the extra warranty coverage, it is available with Ford Blue Certified vehicles, and you can talk to a dealer about taking advantage of those details.

If you want the extra warranty coverage that extends up to 7 years and covers more than 100,000 miles worth of travel for the powertrain, as well as an additional 12-months or 12,000 miles of travel, then Ford Gold Certified is definitely the way to go. It offers all of the benefits of Blue but with added guarantees. It's the perfect option for those who want assurance that their vehicle will be long-lasting and well worth the purchase.
