30 day exchange plan

If for any reason you wish to change your Ford Direct car, you may exchange it once within the first 30 days or 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.

Fixing Ford Car

Prepared to Fords exacting standards

Before we offer your car for sale, we subject it to a rigorous examination.

We check inside, outside, under the bonnet and the underneath of every single Ford Direct vehicle – we even scrutinise the tool kit in the boot.

Once a vehicle has passed our initial examination, it goes through the Ford used car reconditioning process, where any prior noted imperfections are corrected.

Your car has a full service history, as recommended in the Ford Service Plan.

RAC Service

RAC inspected and approved

To qualify as a Ford Direct vehicle, each car is submitted to, and must 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 given a thorough valet, to add the finishing touch.

Ford Direct

The Ford Direct Hologram shows it's genuine

Once they've passed our rigorous tests and checks, all Ford Direct cars are issued with a tamperproof windscreen hologram.

So you can be confident that your car meets our strict standards and is backed by a comprehensive package of benefits.

HPI and National Mileage Register checked

To ensure the mileage on your car is genuine, we check all Ford Direct vehicles on the National Mileage Register before we offer them for sale.

Your car will also have been given a comprehensive Hire Purchase Investigation (HPI) check to ensure there is no outstanding finance due.

And for extra reassurance, we check to ensure your car has never been written off and has not been reported to the police as lost or stolen.
