Ford Boosts CPO Warranty For Competing Brands

Unlike a lot of other automakers, Ford offers a certified pre-owned (CPO) program that covers used Fords, as well as vehicles from other popular automakers. The program, called the Ford Blue Advantage, has a Ford Blue Certified class that provides shoppers who purchase a Ford or a vehicle from one of its competitors with a comprehensive limited warranty of three months/4,000 miles (whichever comes first). Currently, the warranty provides concurrent coverage to the manufacturer’s new vehicle warranty, but that's going to change soon.

According to a bulletin that Ford sent to dealerships on May 27, vehicles from competitive brands sold as a Ford Blue Advantage Ford Certified Blue vehicle will come with different warranty coverage starting on June 1, 2024. Vehicles from an eligible competitive automaker will come with a three-month/4,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty that will begin at the expiration of the new-vehicle limited warranty or the signature date of the Ford Blue Advantage Certified Blue vehicle purchase (whichever comes later).

Eligible brands for the new warranty coverage through the Ford Blue Advantage Certified Blue program include Ford, Buick, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, GMC, Honda, Jeep, Mazda, Nissan, Ram, Subaru, and Toyota.

According to Ford’s website, used vehicles that are sold through the Ford Blue Advantage Certified Blue vehicle program must pass a 139-point inspection, be less than 10 years old, and have fewer than 150,000 miles. On top of coming with a three-month/4,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty, Certified Blue vehicles also have a 14-day/1,000-mile Money Back Guarantee (whichever comes first) and complimentary 24/7 Roadside Assistance.

If you’ve been thinking about purchasing a used vehicle and aren’t familiar with Ford’s Blue Advantage, the changes to the Blue Certified program make it worth considering. Vehicles are more expensive than ever and purchasing a used car can be a risky decision. Getting extra warranty coverage and a thorough inspection by trained professionals can give shoppers peace of mind when purchasing a used vehicle.
