Is there an exchange policy with Approved Used Fords?

If you're not happy with your Approved Used Ford, you can exchange it within the first 30 days/1000 miles of ownership – whatever comes first – for a car of the same value, or pay the balance on a more expensive model. The car needs to be in the same condition as when you bought it, though. 

Are there any extras included with Ford Approved Used cars?

There are a few other advantages that might lure you into buying an Approved Used Ford over a car that isn't on the scheme.

This covers Europe as well as the UK.
