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.

Tips and Tricks When Buying a Used Car or Truck

Tags:
(Posted on Nov 8, 2016 at 05:23PM by Michelle Bogle)
used cars trucks suvs dealer vancouver bcWhether you plan on purchasing your next used vehicle from a private seller or a well-known dealership like Key West Ford, you’ll want to go into the experience well prepared, especially since there is a lot involved when buying a quality preowned car or truck.
 
To help you in your search, here are a few tips and tricks to consider:
 
Know the vehicle that you want to buy
Just like in relationships, you’ll want to have a list of criteria that your next preowned vehicle must meet; otherwise, you might find yourself settling for an imperfect match. To avoid a disappointment, research specific makes and models online to help guide your used vehicle shopping experience. Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, call ahead to book a test drive, so you can compare your options in person.
 
Consider high-volume cars
If you're in the market for a vehicle that regularly sells in the hundreds of thousands, you’ll find that you’ll have more purchasing power and selection, compared to a more obscure vehicle. To learn what autos are high-volume cars, do some research on Craigslist or AutoTrader – you’ll learn very quickly what’s popular and available, and what’s not.
 
Know what it’s worth
When you have a car in mind, research its value online to determine the pricing in your own region. The last thing you want to do is overpay.
 
Ask for records
Service records and vehicle history reports may not provide a true picture of a vehicle’s past, but they can shed some light into how a car was cared for by its previous owner. Most dealerships will provide a CarProof Report with each preowned sale, but private sellers may not, so you’ll want to request one up front. 
 
Be prepared to walk
If alarm bells sound off in your head or your gut is telling you to walk away – listen to it. The last thing you want to do is purchase a used car or truck and inherit expensive repair problems down the road. 
 
Get more for your money
If you are experiencing sticker shock, but you’d rather not walk away from a deal, try negotiating with the seller to include extras, like a full tank of gas, an oil change, vehicle accessories or a professional detailing. The worst they can say is no, which means you can either accept the deal or walk away.
