If you’ve ever looked at a Ford car, truck, or SUV and wistfully sighed knowing you just couldn’t afford the vehicle of your dreams yet. But you also didn’t want to try buying used, a prospect filled with pitfalls. Well, we have news for you.
If only there were a way to get a barely-used vehicle that you know has never been in an accident, never had any major maintenance issues, and looked as good as the brand-new model. Like, as if there had been a watchful eye on it the whole time with a vested interest in keeping it looking nice and running great. The best of both worlds, you know? Getting that big discount for buying a used vehicle without having to wonder what all went down with it with the previous owner. Well, that’s exactly what you can get with the Ford Courtesy Transportation Program Vehicle. How can Ford offer such an amazing deal? Read on, and find out that and how to get your hands on one.
How Does It Work?
You know how when you take your car or truck into a Ford dealership maintenance shop, they send you home with a different vehicle to drive while they finish the repair work? That temporary vehicle is part of the Ford Courtesy Transportation Program (FCTP). These vehicles are lightly used and regularly inspected and maintained. Ford strives to keep them in top-notch condition, both inside the cabin and under the hood, to please their regular customers.
When a FCTP vehicle racks up just over 2,000 miles, it is replaced. And what happens to those former FCTP vehicles? They are sold at amazing prices to the public. These vehicles often look brand new, with almost nothing in the way of daily wear-and-tear and in wonderful running condition.
If you get a FCTP vehicle from a licensed Ford dealership, you’re getting more than a like-new Ford car, truck, or SUV. For one thing, you can finance or lease any FCTP vehicle, just as you would any other new or used Ford vehicle. Also, FCTP vehicles are eligible for all Ford Motor Company factory-direct incentives. To top it off, you still receive a 42-month or 42,000-mile Ford Protect PremiumCARE Service Plan Eligible for our A/X/Z plan, as well as additional rebates. Finally, if there have been any recalls from Ford on your vehicle, you can feel confident that replacement parts have been installed and repairs have already corrected the problem. That’s the beauty of dealing directly with a licensed Ford dealership.
So stop dreaming and start driving. You can get an affordable used Ford vehicle that looks and runs like new. Just ask to test drive a former FCTP vehicle next time you visit.
