I visited key west to look at a used truck. Peter was very nice and fixed any problems with the truck so it would be safe and reliable for me, as well as suggested I contact him with any questions and concerns. I would definitely go back because of how nice and reasonable the staff were.
Pleasant experience with sales staff.
Buying a new (or near-new) vehicle can be a stressful experience. However, salesman Robert Klaus was very helpful and treated me fairly. They offered me a very reasonable amount for my trade-in and the financing and insurance arrangements were seamless. The vehicle was detailed and was ready to be driven home in less than an hour. I would recommend Key West to a family member or a friend.
Great dealership and sales person. Friendly, knowledgeable and not aggressive in the sale at all. Financing was a breeze too. Definitely recommend this place for a purchase

Id like to extend an extra thank you to Megan Fraser, she definately went above and beyond and made my experience that much better, she took care of all paper work, made sure my car was cleaned and fueled and provided me with an insurance rep right on the spot so i could drive away in my new car that day. Thanks again Megan
2019 Ford Mustang 201A Package
I bought the car before Christmas 2018. Peter helped me through the super easy and smooth process which was then passed on to Michelle, who did the rest of the transaction. I was very excited to have such car because of comfort, style, and the speed. Not to forget the loud engine as if there’s a war on the road when driving a mustang. I don’t have to elaborate into specifics but I love the car. After the transaction, Peter guided me through the technology, seats and modes of driving. Also, he didn’t promise me anything but before the day of purchase, I asked Peter some favours. One of them is the “key west ford” logo on the rear of the vehicle that I didn’t want to have. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the customer service that Peter provided. Sadly, I lost the car due to an accident which I’m not at fault. I only had the car for less than 7 months but moving on, I look forward on talking to Peter for another brand new mustang!
So helpful! Erick was fantastic.
Erick at Key West Ford was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and not pushy at all, showed us all the options we wanted and ended up with an even better car than we expected. Double thumbs up.
I bought a f450 from Ben this past week. Ben and his team went above and beyond my expectations. There was zero pressure and they worked hard to meet my needs. I highly recommend them!
Leave it to me.
We like to browse without being pursued, first point given to Jag Dhillon for simply saying, hello I am Jag, is there anything i can help you with. We like space when i shop, and Jag picked up pretty quick, how our personalities worked, and let us come to him with questions on our terms. The end result, we bought a car from him, he was most helpful in answering questions, as well as sharing knowledge.. i would definitely recommend buying a car from Jag Dhillon at Key West Ford. Our, new to us, preowned mini cooper roadster was a great deal, and i feel like the care we got was authentic. Great job!

According to CARFAX research, new vehicles drop 10 percent of their value within the first month following their sale. As the year progresses, that number increases to an overall depreciation of 20 percent, which is enough to make any car shopper groan.
Thankfully, there is a vast market of preowned vehicles that consumers can tap into to beat the squeeze of depreciation. But, with so many options to choose from, not to mention models, makes and years, sometimes knowing which platforms deliver the bang for their buck can be hard to decipher.
Matt DeLorenzo, Senior Managing Editor for Kelley Blue Book, says that four-door sedans are usually the safest bet. This segment often boasts the best feature sets and good fuel economy scores, as well as value. Here are his top seven picks for the best used vehicles of 2019:
What’s to love: Five-year, 60,000-mile warranty and affordability
What’s to love: Excellent utility and solid entry-level pricing
What’s to love: Reliablity with low ownership costs for service and repairs
What’s to love: Six-year, 72,000-mile warranty and low cost of ownership
What’s to love: High capability and compact size
What’s to love: Affordability and trendy good looks
Ford Focus Electric
What’s to love: Great for urban dwellers who see the benefit of plug-in performance
As the Lower Mainland’s premier dealership of new and used vehicles in all makes and models, you can test drive many of these brands right on our lot. We also have preowned Focus Electric models in stock, if you’ve been considering a switch to electric power.

Commercials and advertisements have a way of luring shoppers to new car lots, promising the latest features, highest fuel economy ratings and a sparkling warranty. But, in some cases, purchasing new isn’t the best option, especially when certain used vehicles are a better buy compared to the current model year option.
iSeeCars.com recently completed a study on this very subject. Using data from over 7 million new and used cars sold from August 2018 to January 2019, they identified the top ten models that have the greatest price differences from the new versions of the same vehicle, proving that waiting a year and purchasing the same vehicle lightly used can amount to significant savings.
Here’s a look at their findings:
Rank | Model | % Difference Used Over New
1. Ford Expedition -38.5%
2. Kia Sedona -37.8%
3. Chevrolet Impala -36.4%
4. Infiniti QX80 -34.9%
5. Ford Fusion Hybrid -34.3%
6. Infiniti Q50 -33.1%
7. Nissan Altima -32.6%
8. Hyundai Santa Fe Sport -31.4%
9. Kia Optima -31.3%
10. Hyundai Accent -31.0%
If you’ve been thinking of a new Expedition or Fusion Hybrid, consider test driving a preowned model to reap substantial savings on the purchase price. At Key West Ford, we currently have these used vehicles in stock, as well as other makes listed by iSeeCars.com.

Car-buying website iSeeCars.com recently released survey results for the longest-lasting used vehicles most likely to reach 200,000 miles (321,868 km) or more. Of that list, SUVs dominated the charts, proving that this segment is not only capable and versatile, but wildly reliable too.
Here’s a list of the makes and models that scored in the top five spots:
iSeeCars.com also assessed which brands are the most likely to surpass 200,000 miles (321,868 km) with the top six being:
Toyota – 1.7 percent
Honda – 1.5 percent
GMC – 1.4 percent
Chevrolet – 1.2 percent
Ram – 1.1 percent
Ford – 1.0 percent

At Key West Ford, our inventory is stocked full of SUVs in all makes and models, including many of the vehicles listed above. To schedule a test drive, contact our dealership in New Westminster, B.C.
