All Ford Direct cars come with two-years' Ford Assistance which provides roadside assistance, assistance at home and vehicle recovery.


30-day exchange plan

If for any reason you decide to change your Ford Direct car, you can exchange it once within the first 30 days or within the first 1,000 miles (whichever is sooner) as long as it is:

- Returned to the Dealer you bought it from
- The same vehicle that was sold to you (including tyres and options etc)
- In the same condition as sold
- Exchanged for another car of the same or higher price

If you bought your car on finance, you'll need to settle the balance with the finance company when you make the exchange, and sign a new finance agreement.


Prepared to Ford's exacting standards

Before the car is we offered for sale, it has been subjected to rigorous examination of all areas. Inside, outside, under the bonnet and the underneath every single Ford Direct car is inspected. Even down to the toolkit in the boot.

Only when a vehicle has passed the initial examination does it then go through the Ford used car reconditioning process, and any potential imperfections are corrected.

Every Ford Direct car will come with a full-service history too!


RAC inspected and approved

In order for the car to be classed as a Ford Direct vehicle, each car has to pass an independent RAC inspection.

The Ford Direct vehicle is then issued with an RAC approved certificate containing details such as model, chassis number, registration number and mileage.

Finally, the vehicle is thoroughly valeted, which all adds to the finishing touch.


Proof it's Genuine

The hologram is the final touch to the Ford Direct car, giving you the confidence that it's passed all the tests and checks successfully. You can find the tamper-proof hologram on the windscreen of every genuine Ford Direct vehicle.

Check for the hologram and you can be sure that the car meets Ford's own strict standards and is backed by the Ford Direct benefits.


7 Day Driveaway insurance

You can be on your way and covered straight from the dealership with Ford Insure 7 Day Driveaway insurance.

- 7 days complimentary Comprehensive cover
- Cover can be arranged from the moment you collect your car for added peace of mind
- More time to arrange for new insurance, or to change your existing insurance

Terms and conditions apply. To find out more please contact your Ford Dealer.


National Mileage Register and HPI checked

The mileage on every Ford Direct car is checked to ensure it's genuine by confirming it against the National Mileage Register.

The Ford Direct car will have also been subjected to a Hire Purchase Investigation (HPI) check to make sure there is no outstanding finance due on the car.

And for that bit of extra reassurance, Ford ever check that the car has never been written off and has not been reported to the police as lost or stolen.
