Admit it – minivans get a bad rap. But, is it warranted? We don’t think so! When it comes to practicality, functionality, passenger room, comfort and convenience, nothing comes close to beating the versatility of a minivan.
And they’re not just for families. At Key West Ford, we sell plenty of preowned minivans to buyers in all age brackets and lifestyles, including grandparents who enjoy toting around grandkids, small business owners in need of flexible cargo space, adventurers ready to hit the open road for an extended trip, and other folks who prefer the ease and convenience that a minivan provides.
Most importantly, our customers like minivans because they offer great value. In fact, there’s a wide market of preowned models for well under the $20,000 mark.
