My New Favourite Dealership!

My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable! Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!

Patient and Kind

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.

F350 truck

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.

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.
