Thanks jag for getting me my dream car...!!#Mustang 2018
Fastest dealing ever!!!:)
I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.
Nothing less than awesome!
Allan helped me out so much and went way out of his way to make sure that by the time I got to the dealership everything was ready to go after choosing my car, I couldn't be happier with the service and the product! Thank you so much for everything I'll be recommending you to everyone I know trying to get into a vehicle!

Automotive safety has come a long way since the introduction of Ford’s 1908 Model T, which was the first vehicle to become accessible to the masses. Since then, vehicle safety devices have proliferated the market – many of which proving to be extremely useful in curbing motor vehicle accidents and deaths.
But, these devices were slow to reach the market. Like the first turn signals, which didn't exist until Buick launched them in 1937 or the first front seat belts and padded dashboards, which didn’t debut until the 1950s. And, let’s not forget seatbelts – mandatory seat belt laws didn't appear until the 1980s with front-airbag legislation following behind closer to the 90s.
It’s hard to believe that many key vehicle safety features took so long to get to market – especially when you consider the innovative safety technologies that many of today’s vehicles are equipped with.
Which brings us to our next point – when you are shopping for a preowned car and truck, it’s important to consider each vehicle’s active safety systems to ensure that you and your family are protected in the event of a close call or collision.
Here are four safety systems to look out for:
1. Forward-collision warning
This safety system uses radar and sometimes laser and camera to detect an imminent crash. Once the detection is done, these systems either provide a warning to the driver when there is an imminent collision or take action autonomously without any driver input by braking or steering.
2. Rearview cameras
Even the most seasoned drivers can have trouble backing into tight spaces or pulling out of a driveway on a busy street. With a rearview camera, you can see all obstacles behind your vehicle – it’s like having a second set of eyes.
3. Blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert
Just as the name suggests, blind spot warning detects vehicles in your blind spot when you are changing lanes, while rear cross-traffic alert detects approaching vehicles when backing out of a parking space or driveway.
4. Lane departure warning and lane keep assist
These safety systems help you steer and keep your vehicle on course by alerting you if you’re drifting out of your lane using visual, vibration or sound warnings.
