We appreciated the telephone information provided by Jeff Upton when we were inquiring about a used truck. We needed to determine whether it had the heavy duty towing capabilities that we needed. Jeff went out of his way to do some digging to determine the vehicle's tow capacity and he provided helpful information that we could use to assess other vehicles as we continued our search. That vehicle didn't work out but we subsequently came in to look at another and was served by Peter Olson. He did a great job on intro and test drive, and again, did some backchecking with Nissan to determine if this vehicle had a factory installed tow package. We felt that the negotiation and pricing was fair and we didn't get the high pressure sales tactics that I hate so much. When we came back to pick up the vehicle the next day, Peter had gone out of his way to have the tow hitch, which was really rusty, painted! A real value-add and a pleasant surprise. Nick was great to deal with for the contract signing, very pleasant.
Promised great service and delivered.
Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
My experience at Key West Ford
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice.
Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team.
Thank you so much.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.

All is quiet in Vancouver. The spectators have gone home and the Christmas floats have been put to bed for another year. Santa and his reindeer have made their way back to the North Pole, where they busily prepare for December 24th and the long journey ahead. The 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade has come to a close, but that doesn’t mean the magic has to end.
Relive Sunday’s festive spirit by checking out our exclusive photo gallery from the parade. While our team at Key West Ford was busy spreading holiday cheer along the route in an F-150, our elves could also be spotted snapping pictures to share with you. There was so much to see – everything from colourful floats, local dance troops, musical groups and, of course, Santa all dressed in red.
The 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade was certainly one for the ages – we cannot wait until next year! We hope you had a wonderful time, just like our team did. For more information about the event or to share your own pictures with us, contact our dealership today.

Our Ford F-150s are loaded up and our team is donning our festive hats and jingle bells, as we get ready for the official kick-off to Christmas in B.C. The 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade is about to begin and we’re headed to downtown Vancouver to spread some holiday cheer!
Join us today for the 15th annual parade, where we’ll be pulling Santa’s sleigh and the Toys R Us float. There also promises to be a wonderful array of entertainment with 60 marching bands, dance troupes, festive floats and community groups.
Over 300,000 spectators are expected to line the streets – you’ll want to make your way down early to secure a good viewing spot along the route! The parade will start at West Georgia and Broughton at 12:00 p.m., travelling east along West Georgia, turning south on Howe and finishing at Howe and Davie.
While you wait for the parade to begin, be sure to take the whole family down to Christmas Square, located at the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to enjoy festive activities and holiday spirit. You can also make donations to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society and the CKNW Kids’ Fund by visiting their booths.
Here's a look back at last year's magic:
Santa is coming to Vancouver! Naughty or nice, we hope to see you there! For more information about the 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade, contact us at Key West Ford today. Happy holidays!

He has made his list and he has checked it twice. The reindeers are harnessed, the sleigh is loaded up and jolly old St. Nick has given Mrs. Claus a farewell kiss. The big man in red is all prepared for this Sunday’s 15th annual 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade – are you?
With just days remaining until the Lower Mainland’s official Christmas kick-off, now is the time to start planning your trip into the city to select the best viewing spot along the route.
The parade is scheduled to start at West Georgia and Broughton at 12 noon, travelling east along West Georgia, turning south on Howe and finishing at Howe and Davie. With such a long procession, there will be many great viewing locations for the parade. The corner of Georgia and Howe does get very busy – it’s recommended to look for a spot near the start or end of the route so you don’t miss Santa’s float, which our team at Key West Ford has the pleasure of pulling behind an F-150! There will also be an accessible viewing area set-up on the east side of Howe Street, just south of Georgia Street.
Weather conditions for Sunday’s parade are looking wonderfully favourable, but it’s still a good idea to dress in layers for warmth and to wear waterproof jackets and footwear. If there is a threat of rain, leave your umbrellas at home since they block the view for other spectators.
Most importantly, you’ll want to pack your holiday spirit as this family-friendly event promises to be one of the best in Vancouver. Be sure to stop by Christmas Square at the Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza (10:30am – 12:00pm) to enjoy face painting, letters to Santa, donuts and warm drinks. Photos with Santa will start at 2:00pm in the TELUS Garden Laneway until 4:00pm, letting young kids (and those young at heart) have a few moments with Santa before he has to return to the North Pole.
For more information about the 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade, contact us today.
Happy holidays and we look forward to seeing you on December 2nd!

As our team at Key West Ford is busily preparing for this weekend’s 2018 Vancouver Santa Claus Parade, our elves snuck away from the dealership to congratulate another group of fine young folks for their contributions to our 2018 We Scare Hunger Campaign.
The staff and students in the NWSS Music Department banded together to collect non-perishable goods for our food drive last month. They truly out-did themselves, filling countless boxes and injecting much-needed hope into the lives of so many across the Lower Mainland with their generosity.
Pictured above is our very own Brayden Gouttin with teachers Kelly Proznick and Steve Clements from NWSS, along with their talented music students, being presented with a $1,000 cheque from Key West Ford to congratulate them on their efforts.
Thank you once again for your kindness and willingness to serve our community. Your hard work will go far towards making the holidays brighter for so many.
