Peter Olson at Key West Ford is a Rock Star!

Pete had really taken care of us from start to finish; this is the first vehicle my partner and I had purchased together and he had made the process so easy for us while taking the time to ease our minds for such a big decision. All considered, finding Pete at Key West was the best case scenario after months of searching in the proverbial shark tank that you would find at any other place. Peter and Key West Ford as a whole have been stellar at providing top quality service, I would definitely recommend Peter and his team to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle with peace of mind. His dealership has everything in house from financing to insurance whereas we could take our new baby home on the same day! There were a few items noted after the sale that Pete happily and speedily addressed that reassured us we are in good hands for years to come. Thank you Pete, Michelle and Wes; you all have truly been Rock Stars!

New lease vehicle - amazing experience!

Huge thanks to the team at Key West Ford! This is my second lease (first one 4 years ago) and they knocked it out of the park again. Really easy to deal with & no BS, just really straightforward and honest. Being a single female this type of purchase can easily be intimidating and/or difficult but Peter Olson and the team (Mike & Michelle) made it seamless and left me feeling confident about my purchase. Thank you!

Great place

Bought a Ford Escape Titanium and was one of the best car buying experiences I have had. At 72 years old I have had a few. Great dealership, was never under any pressure to buy or make a deal, Peter Olson was very knowledgable on the vehicles I was looking at and Wes Upton was great to deal with. It was friendly and quickly finalized. All in all a totally super place to deal with.

Fantastic charismatic no pressure

Allan sold me a gently used honda the other day. This guy really wants everyone to be happy and comfortable. I felt he was totally looking out for my best interest and and he went way out of his way to do so from the umbrellas (cause it was raining) to the hot coffee to warm us up.. as well as getting me a really good deal on my car with minimal haggling. He really wants you to have the car at the best deal possible and I was more than happy with his service.. when I was ready to except the deal..he said "I'll get you out of here and driving your new car in 45 mins"!! .. and sure enough I was out of there 45 minutes later I was on my way home. It was a real pleasure dealing with Allan and I hope hes around next time I wanna upgrade.

Best sales experience with Peter Olson ever!

Peter Olson is the best sales person we have ever dealt with!He gave us all the information required to make a knowing decision on our vehicle. He did not have the vehicle we were looking for at first within our price range and kilometres. He kept us in the loop while he searched and found us our 2017 Ford Escape SE AWD which we love. It took weeks to find us what we were looking for but it was worth the wait! We would not hesitate to recommend Peter Olson to our friends, family, and anyone who reads this. He is very honest and went above and beyond for us. Top Shelf!

Key West Ford Wants Drivers To Understand The Inertia Principle This Winter

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 8, 2014 at 04:47PM by Lee Byard)

how inertia works when drivingDrivers spare few thoughts for gravity. Their concerns instead center around protecting their Fusions, Mustangs and Explorers against harsh winter storms.

Key West Ford suggests mastering more than oil filters and fuel lines this season, however. Learn how inertia can impact driving.

The inertia principle is a simple one: it describes how an object remains in a state of motion, resisting changes in velocity. This is often applied to cars, proving how wheels will always spin unless they're forced to stop. This proves both helpful and harmful during the winter.

The Value of Inertia

Drivers are warned not to accelerate too quickly during cold weather. Pumping the pedals only serves to overload the engine and undo traction. Inertia compensates for this lack of power, naturally - and efficiently - helping vehicles move. It gathers speed from downhill drives and turns, letting cars roll forward and reducing the need for gas.

The Danger of Inertia

While inertia allows drivers to move steadily, it can also prove difficult to contain. Arriving at the base of a hill, for example, doesn’t result in a sudden stop (which is needed). Instead a car will be carried by its own weight, past signs or traffic lights. Inertia utilizes friction as a form of transportation and, if not countered with careful braking and deceleration techniques, it can cause collisions.

Understanding how inertia works is the key to safe driving. Utilize it to reduce the need for gas, but always maintain subtle pressure on the brakes while descending to keep it under control. Be aware of vehicle speeds and maintain a ten second following distance between other cars to reduce worries of crashing.

Recognize the advantages - and potential troubles - of inertia this winter.
