Stopped in to check if they had a truck I looked at online a few weeks ago. When we went to take it for a test drive it had the tow package I needed. I drove it off the lot a little over an hour later. Thanks guys!

A huge thank-you to Rob and his team, for once again going above and beyond the call of duty. I have recommended Rob Vanoverschot and KeyWest New Westminster to many friends and family already. From the amazing customer service, to the airport pickup, to the directions back home, I want to say thank-you from the bottom of my heart. You have made the whole buying experience a sensational one!! Even though we live in Prince George, we will only buy from KeyWest (and Rob) in the future. Highly recommended!!!

Thank you Peter Olson for making our purchase of a like new 2017 Jeep Renegade enjoyable! Peter provided answers to all our questions in an honest and genuine way, we were provided with a relaxed and comfortable test drive that allowed us to thouroughly check out our potential new vehicle. Throughout the process we never felt pressured or rushed! Once we made our decision we took the walk to the buisiness office where Michelle continued to make our experience positive, we were given information and options and Michelle worked with us to maximize our value and stay within our budget! Best experience buying a used car ever! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED,!

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.
