Ford vans for sale: Buying an approved used Ford van

Published 27 February 2017

Ford Approved CV provides access to all of the used vans and pick-ups for sale within Ford’s dealer network.

The scheme covers large and small vans for sale, with the vehicle cover usually based on the remaining balance of the manufacturer's warranty. However, owing to the fact that the scheme covers used vans up to five years old, some of the oldest vehicles are sold with an approved extended warranty through the Ford Protect programme, although the length of the cover varies and is dependent on the age and mileage of the van.
