Ford Blue Advantage Pre-owned Certification Program

Explore the Benefits of the Ford Blue Advantage Program at Zeigler Ford of Elkhart

Shopping for a used car might feel like a big enterprise, but the expert sales team at our Ford dealership is happy to help make it easy and enjoyable. Ford vehicles are well-known for their durability, reliability, and a passion for high-quality performance. This same trait continues to their used inventory, thanks to the Ford Blue Advantage, a program that is dedicated to ensuring that you get the best used vehicle available.

What is Ford Blue Advantage?

The Ford Blue Advantage program offers two different options for drivers to benefit from - Gold Certification and Blue Certification. Every used Ford vehicle needs to pass a detailed multi-point inspection before becoming certified in either of these options. Each vehicle, once certified, will feature comprehensive limited warranty coverage, 24/7 Roadside Assistance, and FordPass™ Rewards points eligibility - all backed by Ford and made to offer you peace of mind.

Choosing the right plan for you can depend on what benefits you want from your used vehicle. The Gold and Blue plans apply to different groups of used vehicles, and which one is right for you depends on what benefits you most desire. Down below, you will find a breakdown of each plan and how they can help you.

Blue Certified Inspection

Blue Certified vehicles are a more open bracket of used options that still offer the same level of quality you can expect from Ford. When you choose a Blue Certified vehicle, you'll enjoy benefits that include:

  • Must Pass a 139-Point Inspection
  • Be Less than 10 Years Old and with No More than 120,000 Miles on the Odometer
  • Manufacturer-Backed 90-Day/4,000-Mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
  • Complimentary 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • 11,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points towards Your First Maintenance Visit

Gold Certified Inspection

A higher echelon of certification, the Gold Certified program requires a bit more assurance from its used vehicles that the Blue Certified program won't need. When you choose a Gold Certified program, you can enjoy benefits like:

  • Must Pass a 172-Point Inspection

  • 12-Month/12,000-Mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty
