From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford.
I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day.
Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time.
Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.
Great service from Pete & Brian
We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.
Peter Olson was very helpful with everything took his time to explain and show all.
Management team was remarkable.
This place is a friendly and amazing place to be.
Recommend to everyone that want to have a amazing experience like myself.
Great service from the staff a Key West Ford. I was surprised to pick up vehicle with a fill tank of fuel alot of dealerships don't do this anymore.
Search over !!!
Going above and beyond to satisfy
Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for.
All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful
Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.
Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics.
We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal.
The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new.
We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

Too often do spark plugs dominate repair concerns - with Vancouver drivers fretting always about combustion sequencing and engine revs. Key West Ford knows, however, that these parts may not prove the source of ignition failure. Instead the answer may lie farther beneath the hood.
What Is An Ignition Coil?
According to Yahoo Auto, an ignition coil enables the engine to perform at optimal rates. These induction parts channel low-voltage energy from the battery directly into the spark plugs, converting currents into combustion. This allows the powertrain to complete all sequences and achieve its redline.
Whenever this part fails, however, drivers will discover a series of complications - including engine misfires, jerky idle motions, and sudden loss of fuel. This happens with relative frequency (Yahoo Auto places it in the Top Ten of most common vehicle repairs); and it’s typically caused by prolonged exposure to electrical currents.
Afraid that your ignition coil may be in need of replacement? Visit our dealership today and allow our Parts Department to perform a diagnostic examination. We’ll identify any potential concerns and, if necessary, recommend OEM options based upon your vehicle’s specific needs.
The signs are unmistakable. Every day your car experiences a series of winter woes, with its alternator struggling to make a connection. Headlights flicker; a battery sputters; and a peculiar smell lingers with each mile, reminding you of burning rubber.
It’s time for an alternator upgrade, Vancouver.
As How Stuff Works explains, the alternator proves are essential component to every rev - controlling overall power distribution and maintaining precise charge levels for key battery functions. Winter, however, can strain this console (with drivers continually increasing usage of headlights, windshield wipers, climate controls, and more). Malfunctions are common and this can trigger a variety of issues, with all major electrical elements affected. Expect interrupted sequencing, as well as audio (bush rattling) and visual (misaligned belts) cues.
To counter this we suggest visiting our Parts Department. Our team will efficiently asses your alternator, determining whether a new unit is needed and (if it is) recommending quality-grade options. We’ll also provide multi-point inspections on your vehicle’s additional systems to ensure that they remain in-tact.
Don’t risk winter travels with a faulty alternator. Allow our team to instead provide the perfect replacement. Schedule an appointment with our Parts Department today!
The holiday rush has ended - but this brings no reprieve for you. Your schedule still proves a whirl of errands and obligations, those carefully planned family excursions. There is much to do; and every hour has already been charted in a calendar.
Finding a few spare seconds to order new car parts, therefore, seems impossible.
Allow Key West Ford to help. We serve as the Lower Mainland’s premier OEM part supplier - connecting our customers to the quality components they need. More importantly, however, we accommodate even the busiest of schedules through our streamlined ordering service.
Once a request has been made for a specific part (we cater to all major makes and models, boasting an ample on-site selection), our team will immediately get to work - responding to you via your preferred contact method, launching an official confirmation, and then pulling the item from our available stock. We’ll work diligently to ensure that your order is handled with both speed and professionalism, notifying you of each completed step. You’ll never be without the information you need… or the efficiency you crave.
Through this, we ensure that you waste no time waiting for a replacement part. Instead the process is streamlined, allowing you to quickly receive your specific component (and, should you require it, our team will also offer installation services to further improve your experience).
Don’t struggle with your schedule. Let us instead provide comprehensive support.

The road proves slick - stretching out in endless wet miles, its yellow lines turned white from the frost. You frown, uncertain of how to proceed. Every press of the pedal so far has yielded only sliding, and you fear that your car simply can’t continue on.
We suggest finding a way to our dealership - and requesting winter tires.
The season demands much from cars, with plummeting temperatures forcing drivers to battle dying batteries and fizzling spark plugs. It’s crucial, therefore, to eliminate as much winter worry as possible; and snow tires prove the best way to do this. Visit Key West Ford today and allow us to connect you to the specialized tread patterns you need. These options defend against sudden skids, with their widened interlocks more efficiently slicing through ice. Carefully treated rubber resists the cold, maintaining its structural integrity; and the rims are reinforced to enhance overall stability.
This provides drivers with safer travels - with winter tires enhancing traction distribution to promote smooth revs. Navigating the highway, AutoBlog explains, will prove a far simpler task compared to relying on summer-specific options.
In need of a tread upgrade? Schedule an appointment with ours Parts Department today. We’ll gladly provide you with access to the perfect tires for your vehicle - as well as offer further winterizing solutions.
Across your windshield they come - twigs and leaves, stitched together with early morning rain. You frown, wanting to escape this seasonal onslaught; but, as you try to activate your car’s wiper blades, you realize this will prove quite difficult. They creak along the glass, pushing ineffectually at the debris and leaving messy streaks. This… is not what you want.
We think it’s time for an upgrade.
Come to Key West Ford! Our Parts Department will happily offer you access to a selection of blades - ensuring that your vehicle is ready for even the harshest downpour. We’ll inspect your current wipers, identifying any potential issues (such as compound cracks or joint stiffening); and then we’ll provide suggestions about available brands, styles, and even maintenance routines. You’ll soon be able to drive in full confidence.
Unsure how long it’s been since your last blade replacement? As How Stuff Works explains, riders should typically exchange wipers between every 12 to 18 months. This is due to constant exposure to extreme weather patterns - with both heat and snow wreaking havoc on rubber materials. Changing temperatures will cause the compounds to constrict, fissuring exteriors and leaving structures undermined. This ultimately weakens their mobility - rendering them incapable of performing a full sweeping motion and causing glass to remain dirty. It’s crucial, therefore, to schedule an appointment with our Parts Department to maintain visibility in the months to come.
Summer brings brutal heat and sticky humidity; winter summons sleet and salt. You’re grateful, therefore, for this brief fall reprieve - certain that your car will be safe for (at least) a few months.
This… is not quite true.
While a mild climate does indeed promise relief for your car, the Key West Ford team knows that now is the time for action (not rest). The structural integrity of each part - from the brake pads to the suspension joints, the tail-lights to the radiator seals - may be compromised: having been subjected to less-than-optimal summer conditions. Extreme heat can easily damage a vehicle, with UV rays affecting:
Cabin - exposure to sunlight impacts all soft-touch materials, causing leather to fade and vinyl to crack.
Tires - rising temperatures can create dramatic fluctuations in pressure, expanding and constricting the rubber until it weakens.
Battery - fluid will dissolve in the heat, leading to circuit sequence failures.
Summer can wreak havoc on vehicle parts - and this is why it proves essential to schedule a fall inspection. Allow our team to conduct a multi-point examination of your car, verifying the condition of each component to ensure that no problems will arise this winter. We’ll immediately note any concerns and will then create a custom strategy to counter them, providing road-worthy service for the season.

The smell is… unfortunate. You wince with every mile - nose wrinkling, mouth going tight. A terrible collection of dust, pollen, and debris is swirling around your cabin; and, with each huff of the air conditioner, it seems to somehow grow.
We think it’s time for a filter change.
As AA1 explains, the cabin filter serves as the barrier between drivers and the outside world - capturing unwanted particles as they try to push inside. It ensures superior air quality, helping to eliminate exposure to potential contaminants; and it also allows the conditioner unit to function at optimum levels. It's a crucial element to every mile.
Too often, however, do drivers simply… forget about the filter; and this leads to cabin complications. Overwhelmed by layers of dirt and allergens, this system will begin to fail. It will lose its ability to counter pollutants, instead letting them enter the car. Air quality will plummet; exposure will rise; and the tell-tale smell of bacteria will become an unwanted companion.
Don’t let this happen to you, Vancouver. Instead allow our Parts Department to supply you with a quality filter. We’ll offer the perfect match for your specific make and model, and our team will also happily install it for you. AA1 recommends a system replacement every three to four years (this number is less, however, for those that travel frequently on unpaved roads. Consider a new option annually then); and we’re ready to help you achieve better air.

It begins with a flicker. A tail-light blinks once, twice, and then seems to correct itself. You tense, wondering if the pattern will repeat; and you frown when it does, curious if this…. means anything.
Key West Ford knows that nothing lasts forever - including tail-lights. These bulbs prove as susceptible to everyday wear-and-tear as the rest of your car, and they will eventually need replacing. To determine whether your vehicle requires attention consider these two criteria:
How long has it been since you switched out your tail-lights? Traditional incandescent options typically burn for only five years, while LEDs can offer a longer span (up to twelve years). Those approaching these time-frames should replace the bulbs as a preventative measure.
Are your tail-lights prone to blinking or sudden failure? The filaments are most likely fraying (whether from exposure to constant road vibrations or corrosion), leaving the current too weak to maintain a steady stream.
The need for properly functioning tail-lights is undeniable - and, fortunately, easy to fulfill. Key West Ford serves as a premier OEM supplier and we can connect every driver to the proper illumination options (whether incandescent, LED, or even halogen). Allow us to first inspect your vehicle to ensure that the issue does not extend beyond the bulbs; and then let us install the parts for you, sparing you the frustration of tiny filaments and complicated packaging.

It’s a long sputter. Your engine whines its way to life, trying to rouse an ignition sequence. It fails once, twice, and again - before finally managing to secure a connection. You can hear the wheeze of every rev, though. Something is wrong.
The Key West team thinks it might be your spark plugs.
As How Stuff Works explains, spark plugs serve as the driving force of every engine - generating the currents needed to engage both fuel and air to achieve combustion. When these items start to fade, therefore, the entire chassis suffers.
How do you know when your plugs are failing? There are three key warning signs:
One: The car refuses to start.
Does your engine struggle to ignite? Corroded spark plugs are unable to provide a steady current, causing unresponsive batteries and frequent stalling.
Two: The car requires excessive fuel.
Unable to maintain its typical power-band, the engine will try to compensate by consuming fuel at greater rates. This will cause the gauge to fall with higher frequency and require drivers to constantly seek out stations.
Three: The car can’t accelerate quickly.
The engine will perform sluggishly, with its redline compromised. Acceleration will typically be accompanied by a rattling noise as well.
Failing spark plugs wreak havoc on a car - leaving drivers without the proper power. To ensure that your engine maintains optimal performance, therefore, we recommend visiting our Parts Department today. We’ll identify whether these wires are the cause of your troubles; and we’ll provide you with the quality replacements you need.
It’s an uneasy measurement. You squint at a tire, trying to gauge the depth of its treads. The pattern seems deep... but doubt creeps into every thought. Is that shaky sidewall safe? Is that thin spread of rubber enough?
Allow Key West Ford to provide some answers.
As the leading OEM parts supplier in the Lower Mainland, we recognize that our customers need more than mere selection. They instead need certainty - which is why we happily provide comprehensive tire inspections. We’ll examine every tread, noting its depth, grippage, and strength; and, through this, we’ll determine whether your vehicle is safe to travel.
If your treads are found lacking, we’ll quickly create a custom strategy to fix this:
Type of Tires - we’ll assess whether you would benefit from all-season (everyday errands and commutes) or all-terrain (off-roading adventures) options.
Brand Specifications - we’ll determine the best tires for your vehicle’s make and model (following manufacturer guidelines to gauge width, height, and aspect ratios).
Selection - we’ll offer a wide array of quality OEM names, ensuring that you’re confident with your purchase.
Maintenance - we’ll provide you with critical suggestions to ensure that you understand how to care for each tire (this will include proper inflation methods, dressing options, debris removal, and more).
No longer wonder if your tires are ready for the road. Instead allow our team to inspect them - verifying whether it’s time for something new. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
