Not only are you saving money with Ford Blue Advantage - you're getting plenty in the way of peace of mind. Here's a look at the Ford Blue Advantage program at Paul Obaugh Ford.

What is Ford Blue Advantage? 

Ford Blue Advantage is a used-vehicle certification program that practically guarantees excellence. In order for a vehicle to earn the Ford Blue Advantage stamp of approval, it has to measure up in several key categories. 

There are two levels to the program: Blue and Gold Certified. Each has distinct standards that vehicles must meet for certification. 
Gold Certified vehicles are held to strict standards. These candidates must:
  • Be no older than 6 years
  • Have no more than 80,000 miles
  • Pass a 172-point inspection

For a vehicle to be Blue Certified, it must:
  • Be no older than 10 years
  • Have no more than 120,000 miles
  • Pass a 139-point inspection
If a Blue or Gold Certified vehicle needs reconditioning, the work is done using only Ford, Motorcraft®, and Omnicraft® parts. These parts are tailor-made for Ford vehicles and ensure longer-lasting quality. 
The Ford Blue Advantage program isn't merely limited to Ford vehicles like the Explorer, F-150, and Mustang. Ford Blue Advantage also certifies vehicles from other brands and automakers, giving shoppers a wider selection and more confidence when they buy. 

What are the benefits of Ford Blue Advantage?

Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle is a great compromise between used and new cars. Because Ford Blue Advantage vehicles are certified, they'll have quality on the level of what you can expect from something that's nearly new. You'll get that quality - and no shortage of confidence-boosting perks - for less of your hard-earned money because it's pre-owned.

The advantages of Ford Blue Advantage start before you sign any paperwork on your purchase. With this program, you'll enjoy benefits like easily searchable inventory, guaranteed online dealer pricing, no-obligation test drives at your home, and a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ for every vehicle. 

When you find a vehicle that meets your needs, the benefits only get better. For starters, you'll be getting a certified excellent vehicle for less money, which means you can flex your budget and make your dollar work for you. Want all-wheel drive? A more powerful engine? Greater luxury? Ford Blue Advantage can help make it happen.

Your purchase also includes 24/7 Roadside Assistance as well as limited warranty coverage.[1] Blue Certified vehicle warranty coverage includes a 90-day/40,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty.[2] With a Gold Certified vehicle, you'll get a 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty and seven-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty.[2]

You'll also be able to build your FordPass™ Rewards balance with a huge windfall of points. Purchasing a Blue Certified car, truck, or SUV nets you 11,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points, and Gold Certified vehicles get 22,000 points. You can cash in 11,000 FordPass™ Rewards Points toward a free maintenance visit, which only adds to the value you get from Ford Blue Advantage right out of the gate. Or you can contribute them toward future purchases such as your next Ford vehicle.
