I visited key west to look at a used truck. Peter was very nice and fixed any problems with the truck so it would be safe and reliable for me, as well as suggested I contact him with any questions and concerns. I would definitely go back because of how nice and reasonable the staff were.
Pleasant experience with sales staff.
Buying a new (or near-new) vehicle can be a stressful experience. However, salesman Robert Klaus was very helpful and treated me fairly. They offered me a very reasonable amount for my trade-in and the financing and insurance arrangements were seamless. The vehicle was detailed and was ready to be driven home in less than an hour. I would recommend Key West to a family member or a friend.
Great dealership and sales person. Friendly, knowledgeable and not aggressive in the sale at all. Financing was a breeze too. Definitely recommend this place for a purchase

2019 Ford Mustang 201A Package
I bought the car before Christmas 2018. Peter helped me through the super easy and smooth process which was then passed on to Michelle, who did the rest of the transaction. I was very excited to have such car because of comfort, style, and the speed. Not to forget the loud engine as if there’s a war on the road when driving a mustang. I don’t have to elaborate into specifics but I love the car. After the transaction, Peter guided me through the technology, seats and modes of driving. Also, he didn’t promise me anything but before the day of purchase, I asked Peter some favours. One of them is the “key west ford” logo on the rear of the vehicle that I didn’t want to have. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the customer service that Peter provided. Sadly, I lost the car due to an accident which I’m not at fault. I only had the car for less than 7 months but moving on, I look forward on talking to Peter for another brand new mustang!
So helpful! Erick was fantastic.
Erick at Key West Ford was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and not pushy at all, showed us all the options we wanted and ended up with an even better car than we expected. Double thumbs up.
I bought a f450 from Ben this past week. Ben and his team went above and beyond my expectations. There was zero pressure and they worked hard to meet my needs. I highly recommend them!
Leave it to me.
We like to browse without being pursued, first point given to Jag Dhillon for simply saying, hello I am Jag, is there anything i can help you with. We like space when i shop, and Jag picked up pretty quick, how our personalities worked, and let us come to him with questions on our terms. The end result, we bought a car from him, he was most helpful in answering questions, as well as sharing knowledge.. i would definitely recommend buying a car from Jag Dhillon at Key West Ford. Our, new to us, preowned mini cooper roadster was a great deal, and i feel like the care we got was authentic. Great job!
Latest Ford News For Vancouver And New Westminster B.C. Drivers
There is perhaps no date more important than March 20th. On that day spring will arrive, signaling the end of wet roads and ever-spiraling temperatures. It will be a time to celebrate... and a time for the Key West team to shed their winter coats and slip into something sporty (like a Mustang, Fusion or Fiesta).
A month separates us and the rest of New Westminster from March 20th, however - and that means that winter tires are still essential.
Key West Ford strongly urges our customers to continue using their winter tires. Don’t let the promise of spring undermine the importance of proper traction - and, if your treads seem too thin, hurry to our Service Department to choose replacements.
Studded winter tires deliver superior traction, utilizing thick sipes to grip the ground and break through the snow. They’re meant for rugged terrains and unplowed backroads, ensuring safe treks through even the most extreme temperatures.
Due to their strong grips, studded tires are sometimes banned in neighborhoods (there is a persistent worry of road damage). Non-studded options, therefore, will prove necessary. These feature slimmer sipes, allowing them to move more freely across the asphalt. They’re well-balanced and offer effective gripping.
All-weather tires are often touted as the ultimate compromises, sparing drivers the need for seasonal rotations while still providing protection. Key West Ford does not recommend these options for our customers, however. Their compounds aren’t intended for freezing temperatures, and their looser treads won’t adapt to anything more than slush.
Let us choose the right tires for your car and your environment. Contact our Service Department today to schedule a comprehensive tread check!
There's one date marked on Key West Ford’s calendar: March 19th. It’s circled in red and surrounded by exclamation points. It’s underlined, bolded and littered with little notes of encouragement.
Because it's the final day of winter and we can’t wait for it to arrive. We want to experience spring heat and open roads! We want fast speeds and good times!
Until then, however, we must face the cold and keep our vehicles maintained - and so should you.
Have you scheduled your multi-point inspection yet? Key West Ford reminds all drivers to have their cars thoroughly examined by our Service team. Winter can easily undermine any engine, causing false-starts and last-minute sputters. Ensure reliable performance through:
Oil and filter changes
Cooling and heating repair
... and much more!
We’ll optimize your vehicle, helping you battle the seasonal deluge of sleet, snow and sludge.
To learn more about our inspection options contact us today! We’ll be happy to explain our multi-point process, as well as our protection packages and repair services.
Winter doesn’t frighten you. Frost, after all, can be conquered; snow can be shoved away; and black ice can be crushed beneath the tires of your 4x4 performer. There is no road too wild and no temperature too low. Your drivetrain can battle the elements with ease.
This is a nice thought.
It’s not, however, an accurate one.
Key West Ford offers a warning about the dangers of overcompensation. Those with 4WD tend to think their cars infallible. Roads are treated with less caution and bad weather is often ignored, with drivers assuming improved traction will power through any environment.
This assumption proves costly, though - because 4x4 cars are heavier than their 2x4 counterparts. This causes braking difficulties, with the weight of these models propelling them forward. Drivers quickly begin to drift... which can then result in crashes or collisions.
Don’t let this happen.
Exercise restraint while in your 4WD. Maintain steady speeds; apply even brake pressure; and always keep (at least) four feet between you and other drivers. Be sure to equip proper tires as well to ensure stronger gripping.
Use these tips to avoid overcompensating this winter and stay safe.
Winter is almost here. The temperature will soon drop and the snow will fall, turning New Westminster into a white-soaked wonderland.
Wonderlands often prove difficult to navigate, though, and even the most seasoned driver may find himself skidding off the road. Combating the slush and sleet requires a steady hand and a well-maintained car. Are you ready?
Inspect liquid levels (including fuel, antifreeze and wiper fluids).
Test headlight strength.
Check tire pressure and tread patterns.
Monitor battery voltage.
Replace wiper blades.
Test heating system.
Note the conditions of the engine block, exhaust pipes and other exposed elements.
Winter can undermine even the best sedans, trucks and SUVs. It’s important, therefore, to fight against it with proper car maintenance. Use this checklist to create a safe driving experience this season - and be sure to visit our Service Department for all inspection needs. Our staffers will provide thorough, multi-point examinations for every model and keep engines running smoothly.

A dirty windshield is a dangerous thing. Snow piles onto the glass, distorting angles and causing shadows. Drivers find themselves squinting in the dark, trying to see past the debris, trying to scrub it away with washer fluid.
That often works - unless fluid tanks are empty.
Key West Ford reminds our customers to monitor their windshield reservoirs this winter. As the weather worsens drivers often rely on wiper fluid, using it to push away the slush and sleet. Doing this daily, however, can easily drain reservoirs. The levels will drop quickly and there will be no solution left to use. This can cause many problems on the road, leaving windshields smudged and impacting visibility.
Keep track of reservoirs, therefore, and maintain proper amounts. Be aware of how much is used each day and always check the tank for cracks or creases (this is common during the winter, with brutal temperatures snapping the plastic and causing leaks). Consider also purchasing a digital sensor that will provide a complete - and accurate - calculation of fluid levels.
Driving in winter is a challenge. Empty windshield reservoirs, however, make it an impossibility. Always keep tanks full and use them as needed.
The necessity of antifreeze is understood by every Ford driver. Maintaining coolant levels helps to ensure proper heat exchanges and eliminates corrosion. It’s a vital part of car care.
It’s never more vital, however, than in the winter.
As the temperatures drop, antifreeze levels tend to follow. Solutions become more susceptible to snow and ice, and it’s not uncommon to find frost in the tank.
Key West Ford recommends that drivers monitor their coolant ratios carefully, therefore. Keep them balanced, adding 50% water and 50% antifreeze (this measurement must be followed. Anything else will result in faster freezing points and ineffective heat transfers. Expect engine failure and spark plug disasters). Every 3000 miles should signal a total system flush.
Purchase a refractometer, a portable device that quickly measures antifreeze levels, and use it often during the winter. Also consider visiting Key West Ford’s service department to receive a thorough coolant inspection.
Maintain every vehicle with proper antifreeze levels this winter.
Tire pressure is the oft-forgotten - and oft-ignored - hero of the open road, maximizing mileage, maintaing proper wheel alignment and providing even treading. Keeping the numbers high ensures easy travel.
As the weather turns bitter, however, the pressure drops - drastically, quickly and dangerously.
Key West Ford recommends that all drivers monitor their tires with the utmost care.
Tires lose one pound of pressure for every 10 degree temperature loss. This causes many problems for vehicles. Engines consume more fuel to compensate for the poor performance. Winter tread patterns are weakened, unable to properly grip the snow and sleet. Overall wear is also affected, with tires cracking and tearing more easily.
Accidents are to be expected and wallets are to be emptied.
Be certain, therefore, to monitor tire pressure this winter. Follow manufacturer specifications to know how much is needed, and utilize a certified gauge to determine how much has been lost each morning. Always check tires before turning on an engine since warm air will cause them to expand, altering actual pressure levels.
Key West Ford’s service department will also provide pressure inspections. Contact us today to learn more.
Every Ford vehicle is carefully aligned. Each wheel is centered to precise specifications, helping drivers achieve maximum speeds and efficiency.
Winter, however, can undo those specifications - which is why Key West Ford recommends alignment inspections to all of our customers.
Road conditions worsen as the weather turns cold. Sleet and slush cause cars to skid, altering wheel angles. Structural issues - like potholes or grates - are often hidden by snow, tricking drivers into rolling over them and changing camber positions. Black ice forces vehicles into ditches, damaging the frontal casters.
These are common issues and dangerous ones. As the wheels become misaligned, their performance suffers. Steering becomes difficult and vehicles are less responsive. This can lead to many worries - from simple stalls to collisions. Drivers will pay the price for snowy days.
It’s all too easy for wheel alignments to be out-of-sync during the winter. Key West Ford suggests that all drivers visit our service department, therefore, to keep every angle straight. We’ll thoroughly inspect every car, repairing any problems and replacing parts as needed. Expect exceptional care and exceptional maintenance.
A series of shocks and stress points defines every drive belt. Pulley systems consistently weaken fibers, causing them to fray over time. These options are often reduced to ribbons, and car-owners can easily find themselves without power - especially during the winter.
Key West Ford recommends that our customers pay attention to their drive belts this season.
These parts are naturally subject to high-tension situations. Their designs force them to bear endless friction and vibrations. As the temperatures fall, however, all problems intensify. Cold weather strips away micro-fibers. Exposure to sleet and snow causes misalignments, and belt slippage is common due to harsh road salts dissolving dressing solutions.
This sparks immediate - and potentially dangerous - issues for every driver, reducing the effectiveness of steering, water pumps and more.
Take advantage of Key West Ford’s service department, therefore, to combat any belt concerns. Have all items inspected thoroughly for tears. Choose centerline adjustments and dress coatings, and order replacement parts with ease. Our staff provides comprehensive winter support.
Maintaining drive belts is essential in any season. Be certain, however, to offer extra care to every car as the climate turns cold.
Drivers have often been warned about exhaust fumes. These colorless, odorless gasses wreak havoc on the human body, causing disorientation, hallucinations and even death.
Vehicles produce exhaust fumes in staggering amounts, releasing steady streams of carbon monoxide, nitrogen and ammonia into the air. Over 60% of all poisoning cases stem from car exposure.
Much of that percentage occurs during the winter.
Cold temperatures cause a sharp rise in fumes. Engines require greater energy to function when the temperature drops. They struggle to power their systems, utilizing more fuel and generating more heat to complete each ignition cycle. This results in higher exhaustion rates, which can then slip into car interiors (especially those that have been worn or damaged).
Key West Ford urges all drivers to have their vehicles thoroughly inspected this winter. Have them checked for any cracks, holes or tears. Monitor the condition of pipes, and even consider adding battery-powered carbon monoxide detectors to older models (these cars are more likely to develop leaks).
Exhaust fumes are extremely dangerous. Understand how they increase during the winter and protect against them. Contact Key West Ford to learn more.
