April 11, 2018 – Portsmouth Ford, Portsmouth Ford Used Car Center and Wiscasset Ford have been selected to be the only dealerships in Portsmouth, NH, and Wiscasset, ME, able to certify their pre-owned vehicles with the exclusive MotorTrend Certified designation. MotorTrend Certified vehicles meet the highest standards in the pre-owned market, with every vehicle vigorously inspected, upgraded and backed by a MotorTrend Certified seal of approval, plus comprehensive vehicle protection from EasyCare.
MotorTrend Certified dealers are carefully selected and appointed based on their focus on quality and a positive customer experience. They must have a history of excellent customer reviews and outstanding service. MotorTrend certification allows Portsmouth Ford, Portsmouth Used Car Center and Wiscasset Ford to offer MotorTrend Certified pre-owned vehicles and MotorTrend Certified service in the Portsmouth and Wiscasset areas.
“With demand higher than ever for certified pre-owned vehicles and with my used car center growing to over 300 vehicles in the last six months, joining the MotorTrend Certified program was a no-brainer for me,” said Chris Sawyer, General Manager at Portsmouth Ford. “Being the only MotorTrend Certified dealer in the New England area will place my store at a competitive advantage toward my competition.”
Steve Richards, Vice President of the MotorTrend Certified program driven by EasyCare, said “Portsmouth Ford, Portsmouth Ford Used Car Center and Wiscasset Ford’s two-and-half-decades-strong commitment to the Portsmouth and Wiscasset area consumers made them a natural choice to be named as MotorTrend Certified dealers.”
