Making the decision to add another car to your driveway can be as exciting as it is stressful. From choosing a body style to interior comforts, there are many choices to be made.

You will also need to pick whether you want new or used. If you can’t justify the cost of new but aren’t sold on used models, the Ford dealers at Folsom Lake Ford recommend checking out certified pre-owned Ford cars. Find out why!

1. Affordability

The top reason that drivers choose used and CPO cars is their price point. In addition to saving money on the actual ticket cost, drivers will dodge most or all of the depreciation. As a result of lower value, annual registration and monthly insurance premiums are less.

2. Reliability

In order to become considered CPO, vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. This checklist covers nearly every area of the vehicle to ensure reliability and quality. A review of scheduled maintenance the vehicle has had, and a comprehensive road test are also included.

3. Plenty of Life

Age and mileage are also taken into account when determining whether a vehicle is eligible to be CPO or not. These Ford models must be less than six years old with lower than 80,000 miles on the odometer. These factors ensure that the driver may enjoy the car, SUV, or truck for many years to come.

4. Warranties

Our Ford CPO models come with a comprehensive limited warranty for 12 months/12,000 miles, covering over 1,000 components. The powertrain limited warranty coverage covers the engine, transmission, and more for seven years or 100,000 miles, whichever one comes first.

5. More Options

If there are features you desire on a Ford Escape but can’t afford them, CPO models are an ideal option. You can find the features you love on a slightly older model for a fraction of the cost.
