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.

How Important is Mileage When Buying a Used Car or Truck?

Tags:
(Posted on Dec 24, 2015 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
used cars trucks for sale vancouver bcIf you’ve ever shopped for a preowned vehicle, it’s likely that you’ve been told to look for a car or truck with low kilometres. While this is great advice, the mileage on a vehicle isn’t the only thing to consider. In fact, sometimes low mileage can have its disadvantages or warning signs.

We break it down for you!   
 
Upsides  
There are a number of advantages to buying a used car or truck with low mileage:
 
Less wear and tear: Lower mileage vehicles have clocked fewer kilometres on the road, which means that the components should have more life in them before requiring repairs. Fewer repairs mean a lower cost of ownership for you! 
 
Delayed mileage milestones: Purchasing a vehicle with lower kilometres means you’ll hit major mileage milestones later on down the road. Many of these milestones come with costly maintenance service requirements, like brake or tire replacements. Lower mileage vehicles push these expenses off to a later date, giving you time to budget yourself accordingly. 
 
Higher resale value: If you plan to sell your new-to-you car or truck in the future, resale value is an important consideration. Low mileage is a great value booster! 
 
Downsides 
While the advantages of low mileage vehicles sound appealing, there are also downsides to consider when shopping for a used car:
 
Watch for older model year vehicles: Lower mileage, older vehicles can be a red flag, as it’s likely that the vehicle sat parked for most of its life. Cars and trucks are designed to be driven, otherwise certain parts, like plastics or rubber seals, can deteriorate over time. Transmissions, engines, differentials, transfer cases and other key vehicle components also need lubrication from oils and grease. This only happens when the vehicle is in motion on a regular basis. 
 
False sense of security: While low mileage may offer used car shoppers a sense of peace of mind, it doesn’t always translate to increased reliability or a longer life expectancy. A vehicle with low mileage is only a smart buy when it has been properly maintained and well cared for. Don’t be fooled by a low odometer reading! 
 
The Bottom Line
When shopping for a used car or truck, don’t focus solely on mileage alone. Consider the entire picture! At the end of the day, you need to buy a well maintained preowned vehicle that fits your day-to-day needs, budget and expectations.
