Ford CPO Warranty Coverage

When shopping for a Ford certified pre-owned (CPO) warranty, you’re essentially buying additional coverage for your investment. That means your pre-owned vehicle can stay on the road and the money to repair it stays in your pocket. Keep reading to learn what’s important when shopping for an extended warranty and what’s included in a CARCHEX plan.

What’s the Ford CPO Warranty?

When you purchase a Ford certified pre-owned vehicle, it includes a warranty that covers repairs and replacements of major systems and related parts. If the car’s original Ford factory warranty (the Ford New Vehicle Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty) is still in effect, then you’re covered by that warranty. Once that expires, you’re covered for 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, under the Ford CPO warranty. The original bumper-to-bumper warranty is more comprehensive than the CPO warranty.

In addition, you’re protected by a Ford CPO Powertrain Limited Warranty once the original powertrain warranty expires. Ford CPO vehicles come with a 7-year, 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty Coverage.

Keep in mind that repairs and replacements are only made to defective manufacturer materials and faulty workmanship. Damage caused by normal wear and tear and isn’t covered. Also, not all parts are included, so make sure to check your specific Ford CPO warranty.

These are some of the parts are normally included in a Ford CPO warranty:

  • Engine
  • Cylinder block
  • Cylinder heads
  • Flywheel
  • Seals and gaskets
  • Transmission
  • Torque converter
  • Transfer case
  • Real-wheel drive
  • Front-wheel drive
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Front and rear suspension
  • Electrical
  • Air conditioning and heating
  • High-tech
  • Emissions
  • Ford audio
  • Safety

Why a Warranty on Your CPO Ford Is a Good Idea

When you have Ford CPO warranty coverage, you’re fully protecting your investment. Often, a CPO vehicle is still under its original warranty when purchased. That means you’re eligible to keep both protection plans. Additionally, the Ford CPO warranty is valid until the factory warranty is complete.

Below are some additional factors to consider when shopping for a certified pre-owned warranty:

  • The 172-point Ford CPO inspection: Keep in mind the number can be deceiving, as what you really need to know is how thorough the inspection is.
  • Your Ford’s age and mileage: These factors vary from car to car. Ford cars have average reliability ratings, so considering extra coverage is never a bad idea.
  • CPO warranty years and miles: A standard Ford CPO basic warranty offers the remainder of the factory warranty plus one year or 12,000 miles.
  • Added benefits: Ford CPO warranties offer such benefits as 24/7 roadside assistance, rental car reimbursement, flat tire change, battery jump starts, travel expense reimbursement, etc.

At CARCHEX, we always suggest our customers shop around and compare warranty companies. Many times, a third-party extended warranty provides more flexible coverage options at a lower price. See how CARCHEX compares against other third-party extended warranty companies below.
