First Time Purchase
4.85
As first time new car purchasers, my fiancé and I were delighted with the experience of purchasing our new 2018 Ford Escape. Peter made us feel at ease, and let us see a variety of vehicles, even going as far as pulling them out of their parking spots to let us see each and every car in a bit more open area. Peter was kind, light-hearted and didn’t make us feel pressured into making any decisions. He was up front about the previous ownership of the vehicle we decided on, and even printed off the reports for us to keep. When we had further questions, he brought Wes over to meet with us and discuss the vehicle further. It was so nice, being first time buyers, to have a pressure-free and up front conversation about our new purchase. We highly recommend Peter, and the entire Key West team, to help you find your new vehicle!

Robert was extremely knowledgeable and personable from the first phone call to his most recent follow up call. We had done our research and were looking for a specific Ford F150 that could pull our fifth wheel trailer. Robert listened carefully and suggested that we come in and see the one used vehicle that met our criteria. Never pushy but friendly and excellent at his job. Wanted to make the deal but willing to negotiate and make sure that we satisfied with the process. Highly recommend Robert to any of my friends and thanks for making the buying experience pleasurable.

Ford’s $700 Million Investment at Oakville Solidifies 2,800 Jobs to Meet Global Customer Demand

  • Ford’s C$700 million investment in Oakville Assembly secures 2,800 jobs, making it one of the most competitive and advanced global manufacturing plants in Canada
  • Global manufacturing helps Ford meet increasing demand for its new, fuel-efficient vehicles in world markets
  • Ford has now invested more than C$2 billion in Canada in less than a decade
  • Spending on Canadian-made auto parts by Ford to increase approximately C$200 million a year, to a total of nearly C$4 billion annually
     
OAKVILLE, Ontario, Sept. 19, 2013 – Ford Motor Company, Canada’s top-selling automaker, is investing C$700 million at its Oakville Assembly plant, securing more than 2,800 jobs and expanding its manufacturing capability to meet surging global demand.

“This investment is helping us find much needed capacity for global products and securing jobs, and it is positioning Oakville as one of the most competitive and important facilities in the Ford system,” said Joe Hinrichs, president of The Americas, speaking from a ceremony at the plant today. “Global fuel-efficient products, built in a state-of-the- art facility, by a great workforce are a win for everyone today.”

Hinrichs said Ford will bring several new global models to the plant, helping to meet demand in North America and around the world by producing vehicles with best-in-class quality, fuel efficiency, smart design and value. He added that the company’s investment will mean its spending on Canadian-made auto parts will increase by approximately C$200 million, to a total of nearly C$4 billion annually.

The enhancements at Oakville Assembly are Ford’s latest step in maximizing its existing North American manufacturing assets, matching production to consumer demand as Ford’s North American sales surge to pre-recession levels. Sales of the Oakville Assembly-produced Edge in the United States – Edge’s biggest market – so far in 2013 are on pace to beat the prior record of 130,000 vehicles set in 2007.

The move to global manufacturing at the Oakville plant will enable Ford to shift production based on consumer demand more quickly and efficiently. The state-of-the-art facility will be able to align capacity of any one vehicle with real demand for Ford customers in North America and all over the world.
 
“If consumers suddenly shift their buying habits, we can seamlessly change our production mix without having to idle a plant,” said Hinrichs. “Flexible manufacturing enables us to get vehicles to consumers faster than ever before. This is a great value proposition for everyone.”

Ford currently utilizes nine global platforms around the world to build about 85 per cent of its vehicles. Global manufacturing offers Ford the opportunity to leverage commonality of components, design and build processes to streamline its ability to produce high- quality vehicles and accelerate production to meet growing consumer demand for Ford products.

“Ford’s investment demonstrates Canada can be competitive in the global market through strategic partnerships,” said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. “Working closely with government and labour, we have secured a bright future for our employees at Oakville Assembly.”

As part of the investment, Ford will also be increasing its sustainability and fuel efficiency research and development capacity in Ontario, including supporting studies in vehicle light-weighting, the reduction of stationary emissions from industrial facilities, and research into advanced engine development at Ford’s powertrain research facilities in Windsor.

With today’s announcement, Ford has now invested more than C$2 billion in Canada in less than a decade. In 2004, Ford announced a C$1 billion investment for Oakville Assembly to introduce flexible manufacturing to the facility. In 2010, the company announced a C$590 million investment for Essex Engine Plant in Windsor.
Investment in auto manufacturing directly benefits the Canadian economy. It is estimated every auto job generates up to 10 supporting jobs.

Work on the transformation at Oakville Assembly is already under way. It is expected to be completed by fall 2014.

“This is an incredible year for Oakville Assembly,” said Will Cowell, plant manager, Oakville Assembly. “We are celebrating the plant’s 60th anniversary and we passed the one-million mark in Ford Edge production. We look forward to continuing to celebrate many more milestones and to building quality vehicles with passion and excellence for years to come.”

Oakville Assembly manufactures Ford Edge, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKX and Lincoln MKT

Key West Ford Says Goodbye To Beloved Employee

(Posted on Sep 19, 2013 at 07:43AM by Lee Byard)

bc ford dealerSaying goodbye to family is never easy. Earlier this week we lost one of our own.

Joey Cheba, a valued member of our sales team and our dear friend, died late Monday evening of causes yet to be determined. While there are still questions, the how and the why are less important than the 'who'; the fact is that we've all lost a member of our Key West family.

Joey was a hard worker, a tenacious salesman, and most importantly a good friend to us. In his two years with us he proved himself time and time again by coming in to work everyday with a good attitude and achievement on his mind despite a myriad of health problems that would've driven a weaker person to quitting. He often said, "Any day I'm well enough to come in to work is a good day." He was on his way to leading a healthier lifestyle and to achieving both his personal and professional goals.

He is survived by his wife and young son. To aid them in this difficult time we decided that partial proceeds from every vehicle sold from now until the end of the month will go to them. It's the least we can do in Joey's absence. His presence was a boon to this place and his impact will be felt here for years to come.

The 2013 Show and Shine was an unparalleled success, flooding New Westminster with lights, laughter and legendary cars. Drivers celebrated (and debated) their favorite engines, while families indulged in live entertainment. It was the perfect compromise of horsepower and sheer fun. 

And, despite the massive crowds, Key West Ford knows that not every customer could attend the 2013 Show and Shine - which is why we now offer a promotional video. This Blue Pencil production captures the spirit of the event, letting our drivers experience the entire day in a matter of minutes. 

Marvel at classic cars on display. Smile as local bands take the stage. See our dedicated staff provide service tips and tricks. Every frame offers excitement.

Watch now - and remember to mark your calendar for the upcoming 2014 Show and Shine!

They perform comprehensive maintenance - from basic tire replacements to 87 point inspections - and wish to improve every car’s condition.

Now they’ve managed to exceed even their own high standards. The 100% Fixed Right First Time award is a testament to their dedication. As Adam Isfeld, General Manager of Key West Ford explains, these 23 individuals “deliver quality workmanship in everything they do.”

The Globe And Mail Tries To Choose Between Ford Mustang Or Ford Focus ST

(Posted on Aug 26, 2013 at 06:32AM by Lee Byard)

bc ford dealersThe Globe And Mail has never been afraid to ask the burning questions. Its in-depth investigations of political scandals, international affairs and financial troubles makes it a favorite of readers throughout Canada.

It recently, however, posed a less serious - but far more entertaining - query. Which is better: the Ford Shelby Mustang or the Ford Focus ST?

Key West Ford has an answer. They're both spectacular!

The Shelby GT500 Mustang delivers incredible speeds with its supercharged aluminum block engine. This sleek option is a high-performance pony car, with a power dome shape that sails down the track. It achieves over 660 HP, letting it dominate the competition. It’s intended for drivers who crave record-shattering thrills and precise cornering. 

The Ford Focus ST, however, is a gentler option. This chic hatchback features a reliable 2.0 four-cylinder engine. It blends turbocharged technology with signature EcoBoost support. This generates 252 HP, making it far more suitable for everyday driving. It boasts front and rear suspension, electric power steering and other options to create a smooth ride.

The Globe And Mail wants to choose between the Shelby and the Focus. Key West Ford, however, knows that no choice is needed. They both excel within their categories, making them ideal for drivers across the world.

Meet The Ford Vehicle Family

Ford cars are family cars, passed down from driver to driver, loved for generations. 

Greg Harding is no exception to this love. Instead he embraces it, devoting his days to the production of Ford vehicles and supervising quality craftsmanship. He’s a member of the Oakville, Ontario team.

He’s not alone.

Instead his father, Bill Harding, has served on the Oakville production lines as well. The two have worked together, helping to create some of the company’s most enduring vehicles and trading stories about their favorite cars: like the Mustang, the Thunderbird or even the new Edge.



The Hardings represent a multi-generational family - one of many found within Ford assembly plants. Parents and children often join together to build cars that last. They also take advantage of Employee Pricing, which drastically adjusts overall costs by up to $14,000. 

Now you can do the same. The Employee Pricing Event is back, with drivers earning the same savings as Ford employees. You may not be part of the manufacturing family but you’ll be treated like you are, with qualified customers receiving up to $1,000.00 in Loyalty and Conquest Cash, special deals on SUVs and Trucks, and much more.

bc ford dealersKey West Ford offers the best new and used autos for sale. We also, however, support our community - and we are proud now to sponsor both the 2013 Minto Cup and the New Westminster Salmon Bellies.

The Minto Cup was established in 1901 by Governor-General Lord Minto. It recognized excellence within Canadian lacrosse, rewarding junior teams for both their athleticism and their sportsmanship. Since its inception it has served as one of the premier youth championships.

The 2013 Minto Cup should be no exception. This event - which takes place from August 17 to August 26 in New Westminster’s Queens Park Arena - utilizes a four-team format. Junior players from across Canada will arrive for 10 days of thrilling matches, which will then culminate in a best-of-five series. 

Ken Wood, commissioner for the BC Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse League (BCJALL) and organizer of the 2013 Minto Cup, promises, “You will not want to miss this - the best of the best in Junior 'A' Canadian lacrosse will be here and competition will be fierce."

Key West Ford agrees, which is why we'll provide 12 trasnportation vans to the players, as well as offer a $4000.00 scholarship. One of our staffers, Quinn Smith, is even participating in the Minto Cup, continuing a tradition started by project manager Dick Crompton. Dick played in the 1961 and 1963 games, and he never lost his enthusiasm for the sport or the event itself. He and the rest of the Key West team now support Quinn.

The 2013 Minto Cup is certain to excite. Click here to learn more.

Key West Ford Is The Top Destination For Student Drivers

bc ford dealerPens and paper no longer define the first day of school. An engine is instead needed, with your teen begging for a car that will drive him to the top of the social hierarchy. You understand the impulse. You simply worry about the cost and potential dangers.

You don’t have to - because Key West Ford offers the best used autos for sale, with a massive inventory that’s certain to ease both your mind and your teen’s quest for style. 

Consider these tips before purchasing an automall Ford option.

Create A Cost-To-Own Budget

Your finances are limited, and your teen’s may prove non-existent. It’s important, therefore, to establish a cost-to-own budget. Before horsepower comparisons and rim details determine what can actually be afforded. Include the initial downpayment (which will be higher due to your child’s lack of credit), insurance, the monthly note, gasoline and potential maintenance fees.

Understand Vehicle Ratings

Finding the best deals in used autos is important. Finding the best deals in safe used autos, however, is essential. Be certain to research every potential car, verifying all information. Be aware of crash test ratings, rollover ratings, model histories and more.

Look For Teen-Friendly Features

Not all vehicles are created equal. Some instead offer teen-friendly options, like GPS, electronic stability control, front collision warning systems and more. These functions provide support on the road, allowing your child to be a more effective driver.

Consult With Key West Ford

Choosing the right car for your teen is a challenge. Key West Ford, however, lessens the burden with an ever-changing inventory of pre-owned vehicles, knowledgable salesmen and sterling customer service. We work with you to achieve the best results.

Key West Ford Offers Drivers Credit Tips

Tags:
(Posted on Aug 5, 2013 at 04:38PM by Lee Byard)

bc ford dealerPerfect credit proves elusive, wished for often but rarely seen. Drivers instead find themselves faced with ratings that are as fickle as they are unfortunate. They’re burdened with low scores and lower prospects. Purchasing a vehicle seems impossible.

It’s not.

Instead the best deals in used autos are available to those with less than stellar credit - including you. You simply have to work toward optimization.

Verify Credit Information

Every driver should know his or her credit score, keeping track of each rise and fall. Before trying to purchase an automall Ford vehicle verify your rate. Consult with multiple agencies and compare numbers, noting any discrepancies. A simple mistake on one report could have devastating effects on the others.

Pay Past-Due Bills or Judgements

Even the strongest scores falter beneath the weight of a past-due bill. These amounts accumulate interest, destroy ratings and cause endless frustration. You must pay them. This is the most effective way to improve credit.

Wait Six Months

Redefining your score is not an immediate process. It instead takes time, with information updated slowly and reports often delayed. Wait six months, therefore, before trying to purchase a Ford vehicle. This ensures that all data is current and correct.

Consult With Key West Ford

Key West Ford provides the best new and used autos for sale - and we provide them to all drivers. Contact us to discover how to best address your credit questions. We have qualified consultants on-site, all happy to provide you with the information and support you need.

2013 Show and Shine A Success For Key West Ford

Tags:
(Posted on Jul 18, 2013 at 04:32PM by Lee Byard)

The 2013 Show and Shine was a rousing success, with crowds flocking to downtown New Westminster in support of good times and great cars.

bc ford dealers

On July 14 Key West Ford hosted its annual Show and Shine, shaping Columbia Street to a series of entertainments. Live music - led by local favorites 2 Days And Counting, Bobby Cane and Stacey McKitrick - delighted guests of all ages. Martial arts demonstrations thrilled, while long lines quickly formed in front of the endless eateries. Festival food proved too delicious to ignore. 

The Show and Shine offered more than a vibrant atmosphere, however. Instead it celebrated all forms of transportation. Vintage cars shared the scene with modern hybrids. High-performing motorcycles competed with sleek throttlers. It was a collection of chrome and gears, and many vehicles received recognition for their power, beauty and speed.

Nancy Carotenuto earned notice for her stock muscle car. George Desrocher drew crowds with his street rod favorite. Sherri Warzay brought European flair to the show with a British import, while Bill Cliff represented domestic Fords. These, along with many other driving enthusiasts, helped to create a dynamic day.

The 2013 Show and Shine highlighted cars, trucks and bikes. It also served as a way for Key West Ford to demonstrate its many sterling services: such as detailing, tinting, wrapping and more. We had forty staffers on site, and they provided guests with important information and big smiles. 

Key West Ford is immensely proud of the 2013 Show and Shine - just as it’s proud to be part of the New Westminster community. We’re already planning next year’s event. Get ready! It’s going to be even better.
