I was looking for good quality used car for my daughter who is attending University. Found car that she liked in excellent condition at Key West Ford dealership in New Westminster. Received fantastic deal from Jag who followed through with a minor servicing item before delivery. Jag was courteous to our family and pleasure to deal with. We appreciated keeping us apprised of detail and items through follow up. Great and friendly dealership of which I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a car to purchase.

I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.

Oil Change Advice: Are You an Extreme Driver?

Tags:
(Posted on Feb 7, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre new west bcHave you ever wondered what the term “extreme driver” means? Does it make you think of stunt car drivers or race track enthusiasts with a need for speed?

While that may be true, the term extreme driver actually refers to someone who drives in punishing conditions, like high-dust areas or sizzling climates. Both can do a number on your vehicle and, as a result, increase the need for more frequent oil changes.
 
Here are four classic extreme driver profiles – can you relate to any?
 
The Stop-and-Go Commuter
Does your daily drive involve a series of stop signs, traffic lights or bumper-to-bumper traffic? If so, you are considered an extreme driver. In this type of condition, your engine may not have enough time to warm up, which can lead to unburned gasoline that mixes with your oil, thus reducing your engine’s protection. 
 
The High Temperature Highway Driver
While driving at higher speeds on the highway can actually help warm and lubricate the engine, blazing hot temperatures can cause your vehicle’s oil to thin, lose additives and oxidize prematurely, thus lessening its strength.
 
The Dusty Road Warrior
If you live near dirt roads, in polluted environments, frequent dusty construction sites or haven’t replaced your air filter in a while, you may need more frequent oil changes. When motor oil combines with dust, it can turn into an abrasive compound that erodes metals from your system. The resulting sludge can be very damaging to your vehicle’s engine.
 
The Heavy Hauler
Carrying or towing heavy loads can make your engine run hotter than normal. This can lead to eroded metals, thinner oil viscosity and premature oxidation, thus lessening the performance of your oil.
 
If you fall into one (or even more) of the profiles listed above or have fallen behind in your vehicle’s regularly scheduled maintenance, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford today to book your next oil change.
