Additional charges will be made if you exceed the agreed mileage or if your car does not meet our fair wear and tear standards.
 

Option 3 – Retain: Keep the car
Ford Options also gives you the flexibility to own the car at the end of the agreement. All you need to do, assuming all payments have been made, is arrange payment of the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value / Optional Final Payment (GMFV), which was deducted at the start of your agreement, plus the purchase fee.

Why is there a mileage restriction?
The annual mileage is agreed depending on your individual requirements at the start of the finance agreement. It allows Ford Credit to allocate a Guaranteed Minimum Future Value / Optional Final Payment (GMFV) to the vehicle, thereby calculating the monthly repayments.

I'd like to return my car at the end of my Ford Options agreement.
What do I need to do?

Simply return your vehicle to your Ford Dealer, who will carry out an appraisal on your vehicle. So long as the vehicle meets our 'fair wear and tear' standards, and you are within your agreed mileage, you will have nothing further to pay. Your Wear and Tear guide, provided at the start of your agreement, will give you further information regarding 'fair wear and tear' and the appraisal and return process.
