What makes a car Ford certified?
To become Ford certified pre-owned:

What makes it rigorous? ….A lot I must say.
This rigorous 172-point inspection will be carried out by dealer technicians that are Ford factory-trained. They inspect the car to get the Vehicle history. They perform a comprehensive road test; diagnostics of the car is also done, components of the underhood or underbody are inspected. Not forgetting, the exterior and interior appearance is important.
