How To Save Money on a Ford

A new ride doesn't have to be fresh from the factory. Once a brand new car leaves the lot, it depreciates when it leaves the dealership lot. But purchasing a pre-owned Ford is often just as good as owning a brand new one – if you know how to shop.

In a pre-owned vehicle, you may be able to get that premium model you have been looking at but weren’t able to afford. However, sometimes going for an older model will save you money in the long run.

What To Look For in a Pre-owned Vehicle

On Ford’s website, it may be wise to check out their pre-owned inventory because it may often save you thousands of dollars, and you may get something even better than you imagined.

For pre-owned vehicles, they have a program called the Ford Blue Advantage. What does this mean?

The Blue Advantage means that used vehicles must pass a detailed multi-point inspection before becoming Gold or Blue Certified.

Each car will feature a comprehensive limited warranty, 14-day/1,000-mile guarantee, 24/7 Roadside Assistance, and FordPass Rewards points eligibility. With new vehicles, they come with similar incentives.

You may want to consider trading in your current car for a newer Ford. Depending on the model of your vehicle, it may be worth more money than you think. Often, dealerships will give you a higher trade value for your car because they want you to purchase a newer vehicle.

Trade-in Your Current Vehicle?

Dealership employees will give your car a test drive and appraise its value. Generally, after this, they will offer you an offer, which will go toward buying the new car. If you accept their offer, you will conclude the deal by signing the car’s title or lease.
