Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!

Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind, Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!

I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.

Maintaining Ford Vehicles: The Need for Proper Care

Tags:
(Posted on Jan 29, 2013 at 03:56PM by Lee Byard)

Your car is without flaw. The engine will forever work; the tires will remain steady in their treads; and every mechanical element will stay precise, sparing you the worries of high bills and automotive shop repairs.

This is a common dream. It never, however, becomes a reality.

Every vehicle (even Ford options) is a victim of time, with its components weakening with use and years. 

Extending the life of a car--and eliminating worries of costly body shop repairs--is possible, though. You simply must follow a maintenance schedule.
 
Manufacturer Maintenance: Understanding the Schedule

Exceptional performance demands exceptional care: this is the cornerstone of Ford car maintenance and a manufacturer schedule helps to make that maintenance less confusing. 

Every element--from filters to rotors, cooling systems to ignition switches--requires constant, and thorough, support. Knowing when and how to apply that support can prove problematic, however. Many drivers lack a mechanic’s perspective, are unable to determine when their vehicles need more than gasoline.

A manufacturer schedule seeks to simplify the process. It details the requirements of every model, highlighting every change, replacement and rotation. This streamlines maintenance for the novice and offers step-by-step instructions.

Following the Schedule: The Importance of Care

Your car is more than a collection of pipes and valves. It’s instead a necessity. Losing it to a sputter of spark plugs, therefore, is unacceptable.

This is why following a maintenance schedule is important: you must routinely check, adjust and fix your vehicle. This is the only way to avoid sudden failure. 

The Maintenance List: Common Fixes

Each Ford manufacturer schedule is unique, determined by a car’s model, make and trim. There are certain similarities to find, however, and many of these can be accomplished at home:

Oil Change: An oil change is recommended for every 3000 miles. 

Air Filter Replacement: An air filter should be replaced after 20,000 miles.

Tire Rotation: Each tire should be rotated to encourage even treading. This should be done every 5000 miles for vehicles that are driven daily.

Brake Pads: Brake pads should never be less than 1/8 of an inch thick. They should be checked once a month for measuring.

Engine Flush: An engine flush is a removal of excess fluids. It is recommended for every 35,000 miles.

Utilizing these strategies helps to keep every Ford vehicle running as it’s meant to. Choose the perfect Key West Ford option and then give it the care it deserves.
