If a vehicle doesn’t meet our strict criteria, we won’t certify it. It’s that simple. Find out what we check during the rigorous process of certifying a pre-owned vehicle. Prior to delivering your vehicle, the following areas were checked. If any did not pass, they were replaced or repaired.

  • Vehicle History
  • Road Test

  • Vehicle Diagnostics
  • Underhood
  • Hybrid
  • Underbody
  • Convenience
Lincoln Certified Pre-owned

Comprehensive Warranty

Enjoy the confidence of our comprehensive limited warranty — coverage on more than 1,000 components — included with every Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.

Buying a Certified Pre-Owned Lincoln is a smart decision you should feel confident about. Every Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with extensive limited warranty coverage,* optional upgrade coverage, comprehensive warranty coverage, as well as other attractive values. So rest assured that your experience will be all you expect and more.

Six-year Limited Warranty Coverage

Coverage for all Certified Pre-Owned Lincoln vehicles includes repair or replacement of covered components for six years from the original Lincoln New Vehicle Limited Warranty start date or up to 100,000 miles on the odometer, whichever comes first. This coverage includes parts and labor, but excludes wear and tear items. Each Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned vehicle has a standard deductible of only $100, so should a repair be necessary, your costs will be minimal.

Extended Coverage

In addition to the standard six-year/100,000-mile warranty, optional Ford Extended Service Plan Packages are available to customers seeking extended coverage. Customers may choose from the following:

  • PremiumCare seven-year/100,000-mile coverage or seven-year/75,000-mile coverage.
  • Vehicle Scheduled Maintenance Plan

Comprehensive Coverage

Lincoln has always been a brand you can trust and respect. That’s because we’ve gone the extra mile to help ensure your peace of mind. Our limited warranty coverage is an example of that. The warranty covers more than 500 components, including many hightech parts, as well as the failure of covered components due to abnormal wear resulting from defective materials or workmanship, in addition to mechanical break downs. Areas of coverage include:

  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Rear-Wheel Drive
  • Front-Wheel Drive
  • Steering
  • Brakes
  • Front and Rear Suspension
  • Electrical
  • Air Conditioning and Heating
  • Hi-Tech
  • Emissions

Each Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned vehicle has a standard deductible of only $100, so should a repair be necessary, your costs will be minimal.

Subsequent Owner Warranty

At any time, should you choose to sell your Pre-Owned Lincoln, the remaining Lincoln comprehensive warranty coverage remains in effect for the new owner. This further enhances the resale value of your Certified Lincoln.

Vehicle History Report

Not every vehicle can make the cut as a Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. To even be considered for certification, each Lincoln must be less than six model years old and have less than 60,000 miles on the odometer.

After a vehicle has been determined as eligible in terms of age and mileage, a Vehicle History Report is run to identify any vehicle that does not meet our strict standards. The report is run as a part of our 200-Point Inspection process, and it includes checks for:

  • Flood vehicles
  • Fire damage
  • Frame damage
  • Salvage vehicles
  • Branded title
  • Odometer issues
  • Accident history
  • Vehicle title history

In addition, you can view the actual Vehicle History Report for a specific vehicle by simply searching our current inventory now. Or ask your dealer for a copy when you arrive at the dealership.
