Fantastic dealer!

From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford. I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day. Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time. Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.

Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for. All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful

Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.
55
Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics. We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal. The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new. We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

Driving Performance: What to Watch Out for When Buying a Used Auto

Tags:
(Posted on Sep 24, 2016 at 12:58PM by Michelle Bogle)
used cars trucks suvs in vancouver bcWhen purchasing a used car, truck or SUV, you want to be sure that the vehicle checks the boxes on a number of items, like mileage, condition, price and features. But, another important factor to remember is driving performance.
 
But, what is driving performance? Well, for most people, it means how the vehicle handles on the road – how it accelerates and stops, as well as how it feels. But, there are a few other factors to keep in mind when assessing a used car or truck’s driving performance. 
 
Here’s a rundown of what to watch out for:
 
Acceleration: 
Does the used auto have enough get-up-and-go for you? 
Does it have too much power? 
Does the car lurch from a dead stop? 
 
Shifting: 
Does the used auto upshift and downshift smoothly? 
Does the shifting happen at the right time?
 
Steering:
Is the steering sensitive to touch and responsive? 
Do you notice a lag when you turn? 
Does the steering wheel pull to one side? 
Do you feel any vibration at slow or high speeds? 
 
Gauges: 
Are all of the gauges moving while you’re driving? 
Are the gauges functioning properly?
Are the gauges accurate?
 
Noises: 
Is the used auto making any troubling noises?
Does the car or truck make any strange noises at acceleration?
 
Brakes: 
Does the used car or truck have anti-lock brakes? 
Are they working properly? 
Are the brakes responsive enough?
Does the car or truck make any strange noises when braking?
 
Suspension: 
When you drive over bumps or uneven surfaces, how does the car or truck react? 
Is the ride quality smooth or too rough?
 
During your test drive, if you notice any issues with the vehicle’s driving performance, that might be an indication that the used car or truck isn’t a good fit for you. After all, you don’t want to settle for a vehicle that can’t keep up with you or may be too powerful for your needs.
 
To learn more about driving performance and the characteristics to watch out for, stop by our dealership in New Westminster, B.C. We’ll help you find the right kind of used car or truck to suit your exact needs and budget.
