DETROIT — Ford Motor Company and Carfax have expanded their partnership in the Ford and Lincoln Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs. Ford is continuing its commitment to provide Carfax Vehicle History Reports for free to buyers and sellers of certified Ford and Lincoln vehicles. In addition, all Ford and Lincoln CPO cars will now be listed on Carfax Used Car Listings.

Sales of certified Fords and Lincolns have surged more than 50% since the start of the relationship between Ford and Carfax, officials noted.

“We work hard to exceed the needs of our partners who make Carfax such an integral part of their programs and operations,” said Joe Koenig, vice president of Carfax. “Our relationship with Ford goes well beyond providing vehicle history. It’s about giving dealers the tools they need to help manage inventory risk, build consumer confidence, drive more customer traffic and increase revenue. Seeing the Ford and Lincoln CPO programs thrive also is further proof that Carfax helps dealers sell more cars faster. This partnership is clearly successful and we’re excited to continue building on that success.”

At the all-new, car shoppers will find Ford and Lincoln certified cars for sale that all come with a free Carfax report. Every certified Ford and Lincoln vehicle must have a Carfax report run by the dealer that qualifies for the Carfax Buyback Guarantee.

Including Ford and Lincoln, 38 manufacturer brand CPO programs currently use Carfax Reports to build more consumer confidence in their certified used cars.Thousands of Ford and Lincoln dealers have joined the Carfax Service Network. Participating dealers get free advertising on Carfax Reports and in the myCarfax app to help ensure more Ford and Lincoln cars are serviced by expert technicians, officials added.
