I purchased a 2017 Taurus SHO on Oct 20. Whole transaction from test drive to driving off the lot with my new car, was relatively painless. Only issue was a missing owners manual, which they said they would find and mail to me. A few days later, I received a call from Michael Nokes (an excellent sales mgr), stating that they could not find it and ordered a new one for me. Awesome. A month later, I finally had enough of the waiting and called them again wondering why I hadn't received it. "Oh... it just came in". Riiiiight... LOL. Regardless, I am happy. The only other issue I have is that, I was told my car came with Ford Pass. It does not. The Fusion Sport I was also interested in, did. So a little (a lot) disappointed about that, but I think the salesman was new and didn't know all the features that the different models have. The Taurus (even my SHO), does NOT come with Ford Pass. Sigh. My only other complaint is with the financing. I read on their website of rates at 4 or so percent. I was given a rate of almost 7 %. As a federal employee with 30 years service in law enforcement and nearly no mortgage, and NO other debt, I expected better. A call and email to Michelle inquiring about this, garnered no response, so I took it upon myself to call Coast Capital Savings and today signed a contract for 4.25% .......much better! Car has so far performed excellent. As for service, too soon to tell. I have not reached the mileage required for an oil change etc. Overall, I am happy with Key West and would recommend them to others.

Painless car purchase

Jeff Upton and the team at Key West Ford Sales were great to deal with. They were super helpful and responsive to all questions, and went the distance to make a deal. There was no pressure at any point along the way. I have bought cars before and often came away feeling somehow fleeced....NOT the case here.

What’s the Different Between AWD and 4WD?

Tags:
(Posted on Dec 18, 2015 at 04:00PM by Michelle Bogle)
used ford cars trucks vancouver bcWhen purchasing a used vehicle, there are many factors to consider, like engine power, overall size, cargo capacity and standard features. But, there’s also drivetrains, including all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD). Often used interchangeably, there are differences between the two, which can be confusing to car shoppers.

Let’s break it down, shall we?
 
Differences Between AWD and 4WD
AWD and 4WD operate in different ways:
AWD uses a front, rear and center differential to power all four wheels.
4WD uses two differentials and a transfer case to power all four wheels.
 
Vehicle Types
Different vehicles have different drivetrains:
AWD is found on cars and CUVs, like the Ford Fusion, Taurus, Flex and Edge
4WD is reserved for trucks and SUVs, like the Ford F-150, Escape and Explorer.
 
Benefits of AWD and 4WD
Better acceleration in wet, slippery conditions.
Improved traction and towing, especially on wet, steep or unpaved dirt roads.
Added resale value, especially in areas where the terrain requires 4WD or AWD.
 
Downsides of AWD and 4WD
Added costs when you factor in the price of the 4WD or AWD system. 
Lower fuel economy and increased fuel costs, especially with heavier loads.
Higher maintenance costs, as differentials on AWD/4WD vehicles need oil changes.
Doesn’t improve braking or handling – that’s what good quality tires are for!
 
A Smart Choice
For cities like Vancouver, which receives a lot of precipitation throughout the year, AWD or 4WD is definitely something to consider. If you plan on regularly driving on unpaved dirt roads as well, AWD or 4WD is a must.
