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.

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 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.
