I was extremely happy with most of the folks I spoke with during my time at Key West. It took me 3 days of visiting the dealership to make sure I was making the right decision on the vehicle for my needs and my budget. All staff but one understood that this purchase wasn't an easy one to make within my budget. Peter Olsen, Michael Nokes and Robert Klaus really understood why I needed to take my time and research all my options. I appreciated their kindness and patience and didn't feel at all pressured into the sale.

I saw an ad for a F350 at the lot. The truck was not on the lot due to construction. It took a day to get the truck so I could see it. I made a deal and drove it away that afternoon. Happy with the vehicle. Sales person was new to Key West and lacked knowledge of all the options on the truck.

There were a few hiccups that came along with our purchase of a pre-owned vehicle but I was impressed with how much effort was taken to remedy the situation and make sure we were feeling great about our purchase. The dealership really went above and beyond to get us in a vehicle that was safe and good quality! Jeff was very attentive both on-site and through follow-up calls, addressing concerns, and doing everything in his power to remedy the situation. I would highly recommend working with Jeff who was easy going, enthusiastic, and kept the process very simple. In the end, we are very happy with our new (to us!) vehicle and I'm glad we went through this journey with Key West Ford and Jeff.

Key West Ford Suggests Increasing Your Following Distance This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 8, 2014 at 04:19PM by Lee Byard)

increase following distance in winterYou 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.

Key West Ford Recommends Avoiding The Emergency Brake This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 8, 2014 at 04:00PM by Lee Byard)

avoid emergency brake in winterA 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.

Key West Ford wants you to be safe this season. Contact us to learn more about driving in winter conditions.

Key West Ford Urges Drivers To Avoid Cruise Control This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 7, 2014 at 11:00AM by Lee Byard)

car stuck in snow canadaFord 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).

Key West Ford Recommends Filling The Tank This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 7, 2014 at 10:43AM by Lee Byard)

keep tanks full in winter driving canadaGas 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.

Ford CEO Allan Mulally Dismisses Microsoft Rumors

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 1, 2014 at 07:22AM by Lee Byard)

alan mulally fordRumors shape the automotive industry. Insiders are always sharing secrets, gossip and assumptions.

Key West Ford is happy to report, however, that one particular assumption has proven to be false.

Alan Mulally - Chief Executive Officer of Ford, noted for transforming declining market shares into powerhouse performers - is not abandoning the second largest automaker in North America. Speculations have swirled about Mulally leaving Ford to join the Microsoft team. A statement released in January 2014, however, dismissed these claims.

“I have no other plans to do anything other than serve Ford,” said Mulally, effectively quashing concerns.

Mulally began his Ford career in 2006, after serving as an engineer and program manager for the Boeing company. At the time the automaker was known only for waning sales. Mulally changed this, however, by introducing a fleet of new vehicles, eliminating unnecessary expenses and redefining the North American brand.

Through his dedication Ford experienced a series of profitable quarters, once again becoming a premier manufacturer and trend-setter.

Key West Ford is pleased that Alan Mulally will remain a vital - and vocal - figure in the automotive industry. We’re excited to see how he will continue to shape the market for many years to come.

exercise tips 2014You love your car - and so you keep it properly maintained, servicing it regularly and maximizing its potential. You’ve mastered alignments, suspension systems and the art of filtration.

Key West Ford applauds your vehicular dedication.

We also ask that you now spare a little for yourself.

Take time to get away from the wheel and develop a healthy lifestyle. Give yourself the same care and attention you give your car, creating a routine that keeps you active and strong.

Aren’t certain how to do this? Don’t want to waste your morning at the gym? Let Key West Ford offer some simple - but effective - exercises for everyday excellence.

Walking

The best way to get your engine going is to walk. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park farther from your workplace entrance. Get up once every hour and set a brisk pace down the hall. March in place while watching your favorite shows. Little actions can yield big results.

Jumping Jacks

This isn’t just an exercise for children. It’s also a perfect option for adults, kicking every routine into high gear by increasing your heart rate, elevating your metabolism and developing core muscles.

Invest In Pedaling

Consider buying a pedaling machine. Place it under your desk or beside your couch, keeping your legs in motion even as you sit. This will help to strengthen your muscles, as well as burn calories.

Squats

Do cycles of squats throughout the day, utilizing any available chair to bend and stretch. These movements target the thighs and hips, as well as increase ligament and tendon performance. They can be done in short, quick bursts at home or the office.

Remember these exercises to keep yourself in top condition and soon you'll rival your car!

Key West Ford Offers Vehicle Safety Tips For Drivers

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 18, 2014 at 04:07PM by Lee Byard)

safety tips for drivers canadaThe story is all too common: a stranger shoves his way into a vehicle, forcing the driver to leave the safety of a parking garage for the uncertainty of the road. He threatens her; he harms her; and there is no happy ending.

Every year thousands of individuals are attacked near or in their vehicles - and Key West Ford wants this to stop.

Use these safety tips to lessen the chance of an abduction, theft or assault.

Monitor Surroundings

Be aware of every parking garage, lot or street corner. Note the location of other cars, other drivers and any suspicious loitering.

Check Vehicles Before Entering

Before opening a vehicle door scan the backseat and hatch areas. Be certain that no one else is inside.

Don’t Sit In The Car

Many drivers idle after completing errands, sitting in their cars to text, snack or balance their checkbooks. This is a mistake. It gives abductors a chance to open unlocked passenger doors or even break windows. Leave an area immediately to avoid this.

Take Advantage Of Safety Features

New vehicles boast many safety features - such as interior trunk releases or fold-down seats - that aid drivers in escaping their cars. Verfiy which options are available and understand how to use them.

Be Prepared To Wreck A Vehicle

If a driver finds himself held at gunpoint in his car, he has one choice: crash. Do not go where an abductor wants. Do not leave the area. Choose instead to ram a vehicle into the nearest surface, rendering it unusable and stunning the perpetrator.

Key West Ford wants our drivers to be safe. We urge all of New Westminster to remember these tips.
