Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!

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.

Common Used Car Buying Mistakes to Avoid

Tags:
(Posted on Mar 6, 2016 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
used ford cars trucks for sale vancouver bcWhile buying a preowned car or truck can be exciting, there are certain pitfalls that buyers should be aware of before booking their next test drive. 
 
Here are seven common used car buying mistakes to avoid:
 
Mistake #1: Not Dealing with a Registered Dealership
Buying a used car privately does come with some risks – not only your safety, but also the risk of dealing with a “curbsider”. That’s why it’s better to purchase a certified preowned car or truck from a reputable dealership. When you buy from a registered dealer, you benefit from certain laws and protections that aren’t available to you when you buy from a private seller.
 
Mistake #2: Not Doing Your Homework
Before even stepping foot on to a preowned lot, you need to research all of your car buying options, including vehicles, features, pricing and financing options.
 
Mistake #3: Purchasing Based on Emotion, Not Need
It’s so easy to get swept up in the car buying process. With so many options, makes and models to choose from, many buyers often forget their must-have needs and even their budget! Before getting behind the wheel of any vehicle, make sure you have your priorities set.
 
Mistake #5: Cutting the Test Drive Short
The last thing any car buyer wants to discover is a problem after they’ve taken delivery of a new-to-them vehicle. That’s why test driving is so important. Be sure to drive the car in a variety of conditions to ensure it meets your expectations on the road.
 
Mistake #6: Not Knowing Your Trade-in Value
Before you decide to trade-in your current vehicle, research trade-in values to ensure your expectations are realistic and met.
 
Mistake #7: Negotiating the Monthly Payment and Not the Purchase Price
To ensure you get the best deal overall on your preowned purchase, negotiate the vehicle’s price first, then discuss your trade-in and financing details next. 
 
Remember, buying a used car or truck is a big decision that shouldn’t be rushed. Be sure to ask your salesperson questions and make the best decision to meet your budget and long term needs.
