Sime Darby Auto ConneXion now offers Ford Assured pre-owned vehicles

Although it is always nice to buy a car brand new, not everyone may do so for various reasons. If they need personal transportation, then they would look to pre-owned vehicles which have lower prices. With modern manufacturing processes, today’s vehicles are fairly well built and can be lasting, even if they may not be purchased brand new.

Where Fords are concerned, being ‘Built Ford Tough’ is a strong point, especially when it comes to Ford trucks like the popular Ranger. Sime Darby Auto ConneXion (SDAC), the distributor of Ford vehicles, now goes one step further to give owners of pre-owned Ford vehicles more peace of mind when they buy one from the company.

All Ford Assured vehicles are less than 5 years old and have mileage not more than 140,000 kms for the Ranger (80,000 kms for the Everest),

Comprehensive assurance and certification process
It now has the Ford Assured programme which is a comprehensive assurance and certification process that ensures pre-owned Ford vehicles meet stringent quality and performance standards. This programme is tailored to enhance the overall pre-owned vehicle buying experience for customers, reinforcing Ford’s commitment to quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction.

To be certified as ‘Ford Assured’, the vehicle must firstly be not more than 5 years old and also have mileage less than 140,000 kms for the Ranger (80,000 kms for the Everest). The vehicle should also have been serviced in accordance with the Ford service schedule and its history should be available for verification.
All pre-owned vehicles undergo a 96-point inspection covering all areas before they can be certified as ‘Ford Assured’.

96-point inspection
Certified technicians will also inspect each vehicle using a 96-point checklist which covers mechanical performance to cosmetic appearance. Should any area require refurbishment, this will be done to professional standards that are consistent for every certified pre-owned Ford vehicle.

12-month warranty
The Ford Assured Programme includes a minimum 12-month warranty covering the engine and gearbox, subject to terms and conditions. The warranty stipulates that vehicle parts must not be replaced or modified by third parties and the vehicle must be serviced, maintained, and repaired by authorised Ford dealers at recommended service intervals during the 12 months.
