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.

Used Vehicle Buying Tip: Inspect the Tires

Tags:
(Posted on Nov 7, 2017 at 05:39PM by Michelle Bogle)
When buying a preowned vehicle, the tires can tell you a lot about how a car or truck was maintained. Rubber that is worn, uneven or damaged can be a sign of neglect or a serious mechanical issue, while new tires can be a red flag for a cover-up. Either way, it’s best to always inspect the tires of a used vehicle before you buy so you don’t experience any surprises down the road.
 
Want to know what signs to watch out for? Here are some tips from the experts at Consumer Reports: 
 
Mismatched or incorrectly sized tires: Manufacturers recommend using the same make and model of tires on all four corners of a vehicle for optimal ride quality and handling. The tire size must also match what’s on the tire information placard on the driver’s door jam. If you notice discrepancies, proceed with caution. 
 
Insufficient tire tread: Tires must have at least 2/32-inches of tread remaining to provide traction and grip on all road surfaces. If the rubber measures below this reading, all four tires must be replaced. You can check the depth with a tire gauge or use a toonie:
 
 
Uneven wear: All tires come with a recommended inflation pressure to ensure proper wear. If a tire is over-inflated, the rubber along the centre tread will be worn, but if a tire is under-inflated, the rubber will show wear on the outside shoulder. Uneven wear can also be a red flag of aggressive cornering or infrequent tire rotations. 
 
Date of manufacture: If the car is older with low mileage and the tires appear to have plenty of tread life, check the DOT date code on the lower sidewall of the tire. The last four digits indicate the week and year of manufacture. If the tires are more than six years old, replacement is necessary.
 
Want to learn more? If so, visit us at Key West Ford to speak with one of our knowledge preowned sales associates. All used vehicles at our dealership come with a 129-point safety and mechanical inspection, as well as a CarProof report and full vehicle disclosure for your peace of mind.
