The Smart Way To Buy Quality Used Cars

Ford makes it easy to purchase a high quality, used, vehicle backed by a wide range of incentives

Ford online used car search tool

Ford Approved Used is a smart, safe, and convenient means to purchase a second-hand vehicle. Start at the online search tool that makes it easy to find your perfect companion. Criteria includes a favoured: price, fuel type, gearbox, age, mileage, colour and drive. Search for popular features such as sat-nav, too.

Each car sits in one of two categories: Ford Direct or Ford Approved. The online search tool enables you to choose a preference. A Ford Direct vehicle is one - two years old and comes directly from its manufacturer. A Ford Approved vehicle, in contrast, is one - five years old and approved by the manufacturer.

Ford Direct benefits

A Ford Direct car incorporates a range of benefits to guarantee peace of mind. A two year, unlimited mileage, warranty ensures it is fixed – at no cost to you – if a material or manufacturing imperfection causes it to malfunction. Most original specification components are included. There is no limit to the number of claims.

Two year Ford assistance comes to your rescue twenty-four hours per-day, every day. Handy if the vehicle (say) strikes a large pothole then has a puncture. Cover includes: roadside assistance, home assistance and vehicle recovery in most European destinations.

The thirty day exchange plan enables you to swap the car if required. Perhaps new circumstances make something larger more suitable. Swap within thirty days or one-thousand miles (whatever is sooner).

The HPI and National Mileage Register Check confirm numerous critical facts. Highlights include that the vehicle is not subject to outstanding finance so likely to be repossessed, that the claimed mileage is correct, and that it has not been reported stolen.

The seven day drive away insurance requires the manufacturer to insure the vehicle; at least for a few days. It eliminates any requirement to immediately transfer cover from an existing vehicle.

Ford's exacting standards philosophy ensures that the vehicle – which has a full service history, of course - is inspected and prepared to the highest standard. Imperfections are corrected throughout the reconditioning process. The vehicle is valeted, too. 

The RAC then double-checks the car. This independent body also issues a certificate that confirms its chassis number, registration number, mileage, etc. The Ford Direct Hologram confirms it passed such checks and sticks onto the windscreen. It is tamper resistant.

  • Balance of manufacturer warranty
  • Seventy-five point inspection (reconditioned as necessary)
