Professional service and a good purchasing experience

I had an excellent experience dealing with Robert Antoniak on my recent F150 purchase. After my initial test drive, I took some time to think about the purchase. Robert followed up with me but was not at all "pushy" which is something I value when dealing with a seller. I found him friendly and very easy to deal with. Robert really knows his products and had an answer for every question I had. I would recommend Robert and Key West Ford to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle. I also had an excellent experience setting up my financing with Michelle Kellough. Michelle went through all of the options and set me up with a finance plan that worked perfectly for me. Michelle is also very friendly and professional and I was quite happy with the service.

Robert Antoniak was professional, courteous, and answered all of my questions honestly. After having researched a few suitable vehicles on AutoTrader, I found a great car at Key West. Robert was eager to have me test-drive the vehicle, and I walked out with new (lightly used) car that afternoon. Very pleased with my purchase. Thanks to Michelle too!

Nothing but praise for the car; the service and the dealership and its culture. I have never had so painless and enjoyable experience at purchasing a car. Typically, it has been a somewhat anxiety-laden, somewhat pressured experience. Utterly different at Key West. Best experience ever in a car dealership. This will sound odd, but they seemed like friends. JDF and ALA - New West

First time working with Key West - really enjoyed it

I came to Key West Ford looking at a very specific vehicle, hoping to trade out of a sedan into a small SUV. Ian was the sales guy on deck, and was very friendly and helpful. He understood that although a deal was possible, it wasn't guaranteed as I had appointments to see other vehicles. We test drove the vehicle I was there to see (2017 Nissan Rogue), and he was very patient with the bad traffic on a Friday afternoon. He wasn't pushy or in a rush to get out of the car. We talked trade in potential on my old car, and about a possibility of a deal. I reviewed what he offered, and said I'd keep him in mind as I finished my other test drives. Once those were done the next day, I selected the Key West Rogue as my car of choice. Ian was kind enough to come in on his Saturday off to help secure the offer he'd made me the day before, prepare the paperwork, and walk me through the process. I was never left alone, and never felt lost in the shuffle. He also went to work scrambling to find me replacement floor mats (which had gone missing from the car) and a gas card to make up for the partially emptied tank. It's worth mentioning too, every other employee I dealt with - every single one - was friendly. Whether it was another sales person taking two seconds to tell me where Ian was, the ladies at the front desk giving me directions, or dealing with the finance (Michelle was also awesome!), I didn't meet a single person at Key West that gave me a bad feeling. Ian was a pro - dealt well, listened well, showed patience in asking for and landing the deal, and made me feel valued as a customer before moving on to any other business. I had a great experience dealing with him, and would do so again. This has been the easiest car purchase I've ever made. Thanks Ian!

Thanks Allan for helping me find my next family vehicle.

I came in to the dealership looking to move up from a five seater sedan into a 7 seater SUV. Allan greeted me shortly after arriving and I let him know what I was looking for. I'm glad I didn't have to search all over for someone to help me like I've run in to at a few other dealerships. He fought through the cold weather to show me vehicle after vehicle till we found one that worked. We didn't end up doing the deal that day since it was a little more than what I had budgeted. Allan being the great guy that he is, called me a couple days later to let me know of more options that would be available for me from a new shipment that was coming in. I was happy that he kept working to help me well after I had left that day. Not every sales guy would go above and beyond like that. That's why I think he deserves 5 stars. The dealership did a great job making their vehicles available and did a fantastic detailing job on the slighty used vehicle that i purchased. I would have given Key West Ford 5 stars but I only received a half tank of gas when I left. I figured after giving them tens of thousands of dollars in business a full tank would have left a nice impression on their customer. It would have been completely empty if it wasn't for Allan seeing it before I left and he was quick to get it up to at least half for me. Overall a pretty good experience.

Key West Ford Urges Drivers To Choose Winter Tires

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 21, 2015 at 10:01AM by Lee Byard)

winter tires new westminster bcThere 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

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.

Non-Studded

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

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!

new westminster bc winter car repairThere'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.

Why?

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
Brake alignments
Cooling and heating repair
Battery service
Transmission 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.

Key West Ford Warns Drivers About 4x4 Overcompensation

Tags:
(Posted on Dec 30, 2014 at 08:14AM by Lee Byard)

ford 4wd dealer new westminster bcWinter 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 car tips for new westminster bcWinter 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?

Key West Ford reminds drivers to prepare their cars for winter:

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.

Key West Ford Recommends Monitoring Your Washer Reservoir This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Mar 1, 2014 at 02:04PM by Lee Byard)

windshield réservoir winter canadaA 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.

Contact Key West Ford's service department to learn more.

Key West Ford Suggests Maintaining Proper Antifreeze Levels This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 27, 2014 at 10:52AM by Lee Byard)

antifreeze during winter canadaThe 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.

Key West Ford Wants Drivers To Check Their Tire Pressures This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 26, 2014 at 06:40AM by Lee Byard)

Poor pressure leads to poor driving.

winter tire pressure canadaTire 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.

Key West Ford Recommends Scheduling An Alignment Inspection This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 26, 2014 at 06:30AM by Lee Byard)

wheel alignment inspection winter canadaEvery 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.

Get fully aligned this season!


Key West Ford Recommends Checking Drive Belts This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 24, 2014 at 09:40AM by Lee Byard)

drive belt inspection canadaA 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. 

car exhaust winter canadaDrivers 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.
