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.

What to Watch for When Buying a High-Mileage Vehicle

(Posted on Mar 17, 2016 at 09:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
used ford cars for sale vancouver bcHigh-mileage cars may have a lower price tag, but the risk for concerns or troubles can be higher. Here are some simple checks to employ when shopping for a vehicle with a high odometer reading:
 
Check the Engine
As a vehicle ages, so does the engine – they can become weak, start to leak and fail more often. A compression test, completed by a qualified technician, can identify signs of engine failure, like leaky piston rings or a leaky head gasket. This is trouble you don’t want to take on, so be aware before you purchase.
 
Check for Major Wear & Tear
High-mileage can do a number on key vehicle parts and components. Transmissions, brakes, wheel bearings and exhaust systems can really take a beating over time if they are not properly maintained at regular intervals. Listen for potential warning sounds, like roaring, whining or grinding. This can signify a greater issue under the hood, making this high-mileage vehicle not worth the investment.
 
Inspect All Lines
Over time, gas and brake lines can corrode and weaken, causing serious safety issues. Before you buy a high-mileage vehicle, be sure to inspect all lines in the vehicle. If you smell gas from inside the car or notice weak, spongy brakes, walk away.
 
Look for Rust
Rust is sneaky – it likes to hide in the nooks and crannies of a vehicle. Even if the overall exterior of the car looks to be in good shape, there could be rust in areas that are harder to see. That’s why you should look at key rust-prone spots on the car’s body, including the panels, floor pan, inner edges of the doors, hood, tailgate and trunk. 
 
Inspect the Dip Stick
If considering a high mileage vehicle, be sure to inspect all fluids in the vehicle. Most fluids, like the engine, transmission, power steering and brake fluids, should be transparent. If you notice that the fluids look burnt, cloudy or sludgy, this shows that the vehicle was not properly maintained. A clear warning sign!
 
Feeling overwhelmed? Many preowned car and truck shoppers do! That’s where a dealership, like Key West Ford, can help. Unlike some used car lots or private sellers, we go above and beyond by performing a 129-point safety and mechanical inspection on every preowned vehicle on our lot.
