When I met Peter he first started by asked as many questions as he could about the truck I was looking for. My use of the truck, the age of the truck, the price range, interior style, preferred colour and so on.
Peter called and had a few trucks for me to look at and drive to compare. I spent about 3 hours with Peter and it was a casual afternoon and a lot of questions were answered.I enjoyed my purchase with Peter.
Glad we’re lost!!
Me and my wife was lost looking for the car dealer we want to go to.im so glad we passed by Keywest Ford and met Allan. He’s such a terrific salesperson. He’s got answers to all our questions and a lot of things he could suggest for a very good deal.
Our Experience going there was 👍🏼 Great!!!customer service is awesome!!! And we went back home with our dream car!!
Thanks as well Gurj for all your help!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👌
We purchased a truck from Colton H. Yesterday. It was a pleasure working with him.. He was professional, personable and efficient. The whole process was positive ......even the financing with Nicholas T (who was very accommodating, informative and pleasant) was stress free.
Thanks to both of you!

Fantastic Salesman, beware additional fees!
I purchased a vehicle from Alan at the beginning of the month and he was a pleasure to work with. Very quick response to my email enquiry and set up a test drive at my convenience. He was friendly and professional throughout the entire process making sure that the whole transaction was a pleasant one. However, the dealership has a couple of additional fees they add to your purchase after you've agreed to a price. A $199 insurance transfer fee and a $795 service fee which added $1000 to the final invoice presented for signature. No mention of these fees before this which was disappointing. Fees are a necessary evil when buying a vehicle but this dealership needs to be up front about them like they are with the documentation fee of $599.
We have just purchased a car from Robert and it was a great experience. We inquired about a car via email and Robert was extremely fast to respond by email as well as by phone. Robert was very friendly and professional and helped us to purchase the exact car we wanted. The whole transaction was fast and painless due to a great team at Key West Ford Sales Ltd. I would recommend Robert to anyone who looks for a new or a used car. Thank you very much!
New F150 purchase
Right from when I drove onto the lot Robert was very professional and knowledgeable and easy to deal with which made the whole process of purchasing my first truck a breeze.
Wife's first car !
I went to key West to find a vehicle for my wife for Christmas. Stressed out with all the garbage on Craigslist al helped me get into I decent vehicle and make her morning special. This was my second vehicle purchased from key West and i will be back for my third. Thanks Allen
Dealt with Jag in sales and Nicholas in Financing.
Great experience with both guys. No BS ! The perfect way to buy a vehicle.
Would definitely deal with these guys again
Al made my experience very easy. Although the vehicle had a pending sale he made sure that I was able to have a good look at the truck and drive it while I was there instead of having to come back another time. He met me at the dealership (on his day off )the day the truck did become available. He worked with me and the service Dept to explain the few things that needed to be done to the vehicle which was a big part of why I went ahead and bought it. Megan made sure I had a vehicle and called to let me know how the repairs were progressing and when I would be able to pick it up. Overall great experience. I felt zero pressure to buy. It was the exact opposite experience I had earlier the same day at another dealership.
Winter is a series of snowy days and slick streets, with every element joining together to steal traction. It’s all too easy for drivers to skid into ditches, and it’s even easier for budgets to break beneath the weight of hefty repair bills.
Key West Ford wants its customers to be secure this season - both emotionally and financially. This is why we suggest purchasing roadside assistance coverage.
Roadside assistance is aptly named. It provides drivers with total protection, extending coverage to mechanical failures, collisions, flat tires, empty gas tanks and more. It offers access to the best towing and repair options, and it also eliminates costly bills.
This is an essential service, especially as temperatures plunge and conditions turn dangerous. Use this coverage to counter the effects of sleet and slush.
Key West Ford recommends roadside assistance for all of our drivers. We also work with all policies, providing direct billing to insurance agencies. Contact our body shop to learn more.
You love your car. It’s a sleek-shaped racer (a Roush, a Mustang or yet another Ford wonder) with a roaring engine and track-worthy suspension. It cuts corners with total precision and you’ve spent your summer chasing the sun.
It’s winter now, however, and that sports car is in the garage. You won’t risk its lightweight frame on slick roads and frosted drives. It’s going to remain safe and stationary.
Key West Ford wonders why you’re paying for seasonal insurance then?
As winter plods along consider reducing your insurance rates for all secondary cars. Full protection isn’t needed if vehicles are not being used, and a comprehensive plan (which entails storm damage, fire, theft or any body repair issues) is a far more sensible solution. Save hundreds of dollars by eliminating unnecessary coverage.
Contact your insurance company to learn how to change your policies for the cold months. Ask for recommendations and compare monthly costs.
You want to protect your vehicle. Key West Ford simply suggests limiting the scope of that protection. Choose plans that best reflect the season and your situation.
Drivers spare few thoughts for gravity. Their concerns instead center around protecting their Fusions, Mustangs and Explorers against harsh winter storms.
Key West Ford suggests mastering more than oil filters and fuel lines this season, however. Learn how inertia can impact driving.
The inertia principle is a simple one: it describes how an object remains in a state of motion, resisting changes in velocity. This is often applied to cars, proving how wheels will always spin unless they're forced to stop. This proves both helpful and harmful during the winter.
The Value of Inertia
Drivers are warned not to accelerate too quickly during cold weather. Pumping the pedals only serves to overload the engine and undo traction. Inertia compensates for this lack of power, naturally - and efficiently - helping vehicles move. It gathers speed from downhill drives and turns, letting cars roll forward and reducing the need for gas.
The Danger of Inertia
While inertia allows drivers to move steadily, it can also prove difficult to contain. Arriving at the base of a hill, for example, doesn’t result in a sudden stop (which is needed). Instead a car will be carried by its own weight, past signs or traffic lights. Inertia utilizes friction as a form of transportation and, if not countered with careful braking and deceleration techniques, it can cause collisions.
Understanding how inertia works is the key to safe driving. Utilize it to reduce the need for gas, but always maintain subtle pressure on the brakes while descending to keep it under control. Be aware of vehicle speeds and maintain a ten second following distance between other cars to reduce worries of crashing.
Recognize the advantages - and potential troubles - of inertia this winter.
Ford drivers crave the open road. They want fast speeds and roaring engines - and cars like the signature Mustang or the Eco-boost enhanced Fusion deliver them both.
As the winter season rolls on, however, Key West Ford urges all drivers to slow down.
Cold weather breeds chaos. Once safe roads become slick, crusted with ice, sleet and dirty snow. Drivers must, therefore, learn to adapt to these conditions by decreasing their speeds. Avoid fast accelerations or abrupt stops whenever possible, reducing average ratios by up to fifteen miles per hour. Applying extra thrust causes nothing more than spinning wheels. Gently press the pedals instead to maintain traction.
Driving slowly is essential in the winter. Remember that it will impact work, errands more, however, so shift all schedules accordingly. Allow extra time to do everyday activities.
Key West Ford wants every driver to be safe this February. We urge everyone to slow down and be careful.
You are rarely alone on the road. Every mile seems to bring yet another driver, yet another car; and you share the highways, byways and intersections with the rest of the world's travelers.
Sharing the streets during winter, however, can prove dangerous - unless you maintain a proper following distance.
The following distance is the length between cars. It’s measured in time rather than inches and, during warm months, it’s recommended to maintain three to five seconds. This allows drivers to easily adapt to changes in traffic, road conditions and more.
As the weather turns cold, however, that time becomes far too short. Black ice, sleet and heavy rain can transform asphalt into a series of accidents, and drivers must prepare for all inevitabilities. They must, therefore, increase their following distances.
Key West Ford recommends leaving up to ten seconds between vehicles. This allows all drivers - including you - to better adjust to sudden stops, skids or collisions. Move at a slow and steady pace, and maintain a sizable gap between all cars.
Winter driving is never easy. Increasing your following distance, however, can make it manageable.
A patch of ice, a sudden skid, and your car goes barreling toward a ditch. High speeds and violent spins leave you terrified - which is why you wrench back the emergency brake, desperate to slow down.
That plan, however, fails.
Your emergency brake doesn’t stop the impending crash. It doesn’t do anything.
Key West Ford reminds drivers to avoid using their emergency brakes whenever possible this winter. While this may seem counter-intuitive, the truth is that this particular technology often proves useless in cold climates.
Plunging temperatures wreak havoc on emergency brakes. The cables, which are rarely used and poorly protected, become coated in heavy frost and ice. This causes corrosion, which directly impacts the release strength. Lines are more likely to snap and this can have dangerous effects on the road.
It’s recommended, therefore, to keep emergency brakes properly serviced during the winter. Have them inspected regularly and park your vehicle beneath a shelter (this will reduce exposure to ice).
Note that even these measures may not be enough to keep emergency brakes in top form. Avoiding them is the best solution. Rely on decreased speeds and careful steering instead.

Ford drivers love their cruise controls - and it’s no wonder why. Intuitive technologies keep travelers on the right track, detecting changes in traffic, road structure and more. Maintaining perfect speeds is a simple feat.
As winter continues to roll through New Westminster, however, that feat becomes impossible.
Key West Ford urges all drivers to avoid using their cruise controls this season. Though Ford vehicles boast the latest innovations - such as the Fusion’s brake-assist systems or the Taurus' radar sensors - travelers can easily find themselves slipping and sliding. Snow, sleet and ice make for dangerous companions, and cruise functions can’t properly adapt to them.
Learn to accelerate and decelerate as needed instead. Rely on steady pressure to maintain traction, and avoid sudden bursts of speed. This will help all vehicles to remain in their proper lanes (rather than skidding into ditches).

Gas prices are forever soaring. Drivers empty their wallets in the name of transportation, and the open road seems less appealing when it breaks the budget.
Travelers, therefore, try to siphon every drop of fuel. They power their engines on fumes and sheer determination, refusing to pay more than is absolutely necessary.
This is an understandable thought. It’s just not a safe one.
Key West Ford reminds all drivers to keep their tanks full this winter. Fuel lines, when empty, have a terrible tendency to freeze. Air floods the interior and creates moisture, which then settles in the lines and causes frost to form. Without consistent levels of fuel to counter it, that frost soon hardens and directly impacts engine capabilities. Vehicles can refuse to start or can even suddenly stop while on the road.
This must be avoided.
Key West Ford recommends that drivers keep their tanks (at least) halfway full during cold months. This will defend against frost and ensure that every car functions properly.
