Zimmerman Certified Used Cars
So you are interested in purchasing a certified used car, but you don't really know all the details about it. You have heard from others that certified used cars are the way to go as far as affordability and reliability in contrast to a regular pre-owned or new vehicle, but you are still not sure, if it is the right choice for you. Well we will set the record straight here about certified used cars and focus on Ford's certification program, which is considered one of the best certified used car programs in the country.
Certified used cars typically have low mileage and have to go through some kind of inspection process before being labeled "certified". These types of vehicles are backed by a warranty that extends beyond the original warranty. However, not every vehicle can be certified. Certified used cars go through a rigorous testing procedure, and if mechanics find too many problems or problems that are not able to be fixed, the vehicle will be disqualified from the certification program. In order for a vehicle to even become certifiable by Ford Motor Company, the automobile cannot be more than six years old, and cannot have more than 80,000 miles on the odometer. It must pass the tough inspection test given by professional Ford mechanics, and once it is certified, a quality warranty program will be put into place. The warranty program for Ford certified used cars includes a 6-year, 100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty and a 3-month, 1,000 mile comprehensive warranty put into effect at the time of purchase. Ford's certified used car program has numerous benefits. The warranty covers many parts, including engine parts, transmission components, along with many other types of parts. The warranty is fully transferable, and you will also receive roadside assistance from Ford in case of a breakdown or some kind of mechanical failure. Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 a day is also available for up to three days, if you have any problems with your automobile breaking down. Furthermore, if the vehicle requires some kind of mechanical repairs, Ford Motor Company will reimburse you for rental car fees. Rental car reimbursement is $30 per day for up to five days, as long as the vehicle needs overnight repair work. There are also low APR finance rates and a warranty ID card that you keep.
When you purchase a certified used car, you usually are eligible for benefits shared by new car owners. Service car loans, shuttle pick-ups, roadside assistance, and low rate incentive loans are just a few of the wonderful benefits you can expect when you purchase a certified used car.
