Great Guy
Allan was awesome guy got me the best deal on F 150. I recommend him to anyone and the whole team is good people. Thanks guys !
Professional service
I bought my Jeep from there. It was the smoothest purchase i ever made. Tom was delightful. He wasn’t pushy as some sales people you might encounter. I’ve had a few sales people I dealt with a few dealership prior to buying my car and I made my decision with Ford because of this experience( I have to mention Hamid at Subaru Dealership at Boundary is also great.). Tom is very informative and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about Tom and how professional him and his management team was. Go with these guys if you want to have a piece of mind.
Pleasant experiance in purchasing my new vehicle.
The total experience of purchasing my new vehicle from Allan was enjoyable. Allan was very informative explaining thing and did not push for a sale allowing me to come to the decision that the car I wanted was the right vehicle for me. Every one else I dealt with at Key West Ford was also very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely do it again when the time comes.
Very pleasant car purchase experience with Peter
Found a car online, called in and scheduled an appointment with Peter. He got the car prepared before we arrived and got us a great deal. Highly recommend!

Wes was a down to earth manager. I was impressed how these guys and everyone else in the sales department worked as a team. my truck was detailed perfectly. I would recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle. I have certainly found the dealership that I would do business with in the future.

ford vehicle maintenance in bcFor the average motorist, they may not know anything about their fuel pump (or that their Ford is even equipped with one) until it breaks down. But, a fuel pump plays an important role – it injects gas into the engine so that a car can run. If this part is faulty or malfunctioning, you won’t get very far. 
To avoid an unexpected breakdown, here are some warning signs to watch out for:
Engine Sputters 
If your fuel pump is unable to inject a consistent stream of gas, the engine will sputter at high speeds.
If you find your vehicle coasting at a consistent speed, then suddenly surging forward without depressing the gas pedal, this could be a sign of irregular resistance within the fuel pump’s motor.
High Temperature
Just like we spike a fever when sick, a faulty fuel pump will often signal an issue by raising the temperature gauge to a higher heat, which can cause a vehicle to stall.
Loss of Power 
Climbing hills or heavy payloads can put a strain on a vehicle. If your fuel pump is deteriorating, it will have a difficult time supplying gas to the engine, which can lead to a breakdown.
Bad Fuel Economy
If your Ford becomes a “fuel hog”, it could mean that your pump’s relief valve is faulty, causing more gas to unnecessarily flow into the engine.
Car Won’t Start
If you turn the ignition and hear the engine crank and rev, but never catch, this could be caused by low pressure in the gas line from a faulting fuel pump.
If you’ve been experiencing the issues listed above, it might be time to bring your vehicle in for an inspection. To schedule a service appointment at our dealership, contact us at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C.
There are a number of reasons why people need to store a vehicle. For some, they have a convertible or a sports car that they like to baby over the winter months, while others must leave town for work or an extended vacation. 
Whatever the reason, it’s very important that you store your Ford car or truck properly, so that you don’t return to a dead battery or worse – a damaged engine, deteriorated tires or destruction by small animals and rodents.  
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Change the oil
If you are storing your vehicle for more than 30 days, you’ll want to change the oil so that contaminants don’t harm the engine.
Clean it
Bird droppings, water stains, mud and grease can damage a vehicle’s paint if left on the surface for too long. Before you store your Ford, give it a good wash and wax if you have time.
Keep it covered
An indoor garage is the best place to store your vehicle, as it will protect the car from the elements and animals, and keep it at a stable temperature. 
Fill it up
Fill the tank with gas and a fuel stabilizer if you expect the car to be in storage for more than 30 days. This will prevent moisture from accumulating inside the tank and keep the seals from drying out. 
Keep it running
An unattended battery will eventually lose its charge, so you’ll want to drive the vehicle periodically while in storage (about every two weeks for 15 minutes). If you’ll be away, see if a friend can help you out. This will also help your tires not form flat spots.
Skip the parking brake
While you might be tempted to engage the parking brake – don’t. If the brake pads make contact with the rotors for too long, there is a chance that they might fuse. Instead, use a tire stopper to prevent the car from rolling.
If you’re getting ready to store your vehicle for the winter, call our Service Department at Key West Ford to book a pre-storage inspection. We’ll ensure that your Ford car or truck and its components and systems are in good shape before they hibernate until spring.

5 Ways to Get Better Gas Mileage in New Westminster, B.C.

(Posted on Nov 16, 2017 at 06:30AM by Michelle Bogle)
With gas prices on the rise across the Lower Mainland, drivers are having to spend more per fill. Over time, this equates to inflated monthly fuel costs, which can really tank a budget (no pun intended).
And while gas costs can feel beyond our control, there are some measures that we can take, aside from cutting back on the kilometres we drive. One of those measures is regularly scheduled maintenance.
Here are five simple ways to improve fuel economy and save money:
1. Check Tire Pressure:
Properly inflated tires can improve gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent.
2. Use the Right Motor Oil:
Using the grade of motor oil as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer can improve your gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent.
3. Replace Clogged Air Filters:
A clogged air filter can lead to decreased fuel efficiency and performance, especially when accelerating. 
4. Check Engine Performance:
If you notice your “check engine” light is on, be sure to address any issues right away. Keeping your engine running in top performance can improve gas mileage by up to 4 percent.
5. Fix Serious Maintenance Issues:
Addressing serious maintenance problem, like a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve gas mileage by as much as 40 percent.

(Posted on May 26, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre vancouver bcTaking care of your Ford car or truck by following its recommended maintenance schedule is key to ensuring that your vehicle remains safe and reliable. It can also reduce your long- and short-term costs, including repairs and gas, maintain its resale value and help protect the environment through reduced emissions. Sounds like a win-win, right?

Check Monthly
Interior and exterior lights

Chassis lubrication
Coolant (antifreeze) level

Extend the Life of Your Ford with Regular Maintenance

(Posted on May 7, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive maintenance provider vancouver bcWhether you drive an older Ford Mustang or a newer F-150 that’s still under warranty, regularly scheduled maintenance is key to extending the life of your vehicle. Over time, components begin to wear, which can lead to larger issues or repairs. The best way to avoid this is by inspecting your Ford on an on-going basis.
Here are four key areas to pay attention to:
Inspect your tires 
Uneven wear or unbalanced tires can stress the suspension on your car or truck. To avoid this, have your tires rotated on a regular basis and inspect the alignment too. Not only will this extend the life of your tires, but your vehicle as a whole.
Check your fluids
The fluids in your Ford lubricate critical parts and systems, such as your brakes, power steering and transmission. By replacing contaminated fluids and ensuring correct levels, these parts and systems can work more efficiently, thus extending the life of your vehicle.
Replace your timing belt
The timing belt in your vehicle plays an important role – it prevents the pistons and valves from colliding. Over time, this can cause the belt to weaken, wear and eventually break, which can cause serious damage to your engine. To avoid this costly repair, be sure to replace the timing belt according to the schedule in your Owner’s Guide.
Check your suspension 
Worn shocks and struts are responsible for a rougher ride, decreased vehicle control and increased stopping distances. By replacing these key parts before they are completely worn out, you not only improve the stability and ride control of your vehicle, but you also have the ability to extend the life of your car or truck.  
Remember: if you are too busy and don’t have the know-how to regularly check these maintenance items yourself, our Service Experts at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. can help. Simply call us to book an appointment and we’ll handle the rest. 

Handy Car Maintenance Checklist – “LIFT BOW”

(Posted on Apr 20, 2017 at 12:29PM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service station vancouver bcWhen it comes to owning a vehicle, a little preventive maintenance goes a long way. In fact, it can save you precious time and money by circumventing unexpected repairs. But, with the busy lives we lead, it can be hard to know (and remember) what to keep a close eye on, right?
Well, not anymore! All you need to remember is this helpful acronym: LIFT BOW. Here’s what each letter stands for:
L is for Lights
When doing a walkaround your vehicle, make sure your headlamps, running lights and brake lights are working and clean. If a light is out, replace it right away to avoid an accident or ticket.
I is for Interior
Get into the habit of keeping your vehicle’s interior clean and vacuuming it regularly. This will help prevent any staining from spills and will ensure that the upholstery looks and smells fresh. 
F is for Fluids
There are many fluids throughout your vehicle – not just oil. Be sure to check that your coolant, power-steering, transmission, windshield washer and brake fluids are at their recommended levels, as outlined in your Owner’s Guide.
T is for Tires
There are a few things to watch out for with your tires – mainly, correct tire pressure and signs of wear. Checking the pressure is easy – all you need is an inexpensive tire gauge and your Owner’s Guide, which lists the recommended psi for your make and model. To check for signs of wear, pay close attention to the wear bars on the tires or look for any damage on the treads or sidewalls.
B is for Brakes
Brakes are an important safety component on your vehicle. Be sure to have them inspected immediately if you notice a difference in pedal feel, if your brakes are making unusual noises or if you sense a change in stopping ability.
O is for Oil
Most Ford vehicles are equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitoring (IOLM) System, which will notify you when your car or truck is due for an oil change. You can also check the dipstick on your vehicle to assess the level and quality of your oil.
W is for Windows
Your windows, especially your windshield, should always be free from cracks, pits and any debris that might impair your vision while driving. If you notice any damage, be sure to visit our Service Department for a repair. We can also recommend replacement wiper blades, which should be changed every six months. 
Remember: if you are too busy and don’t have a chance to regularly check these preventative maintenance items yourself, our Service Experts at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. can help. All you need to do is call us to book an appointment and we’ll handle the rest.

Spark Plugs: When Should I Have Them Replaced?

(Posted on Mar 14, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford automotive service centre vancouver bcEver wonder what spark plugs do – specifically, what their job is within your vehicle? You’re not alone. Many drivers are unaware of this small, but essential automotive part.
Simply put, a spark plug is a device in the engine that produces electric sparks to start the ignition. Over time, they can wear out and require replacement. If that’s the case, you may notice one or all of these warning signs:

Your car won’t start
If your spark plugs are unable to produce an electric spark to start the ignition, your car won’t be able to start – simple as that. So, if your battery is fine and you have a full tank of gas in your vehicle, you may want to have one of our Technicians inspect your spark plugs. It's an inexpensive fix.
Your engine misfires
If your vehicle’s engine misfires, it could mean that a spark plug wire or the tip of the spark plug that connects to the wire are damaged. This is characterized by intermittent stumbling or sputtering sounds from the engine. If the engine is left to misfire, exhaust emissions will increase, engine power will decrease and fuel efficiency will drop. Don’t ignore this problem – bring your Ford to our Service Department for an inspection.
Your car’s fuel economy has declined
Speaking of poor fuel efficiency, did you know that a faulty spark plug can cause your vehicle’s fuel economy to drop as much as 30 percent? That adds up to a lot of extra trips to the gas station. Stop the bleed by having the spark plugs replaced on your vehicle. Your wallet will thank you! 
Your car is slow to accelerate
A spark plug is made of materials that work together to produce a spark hot enough to ignite the air-fuel mixture. When those materials wear out, the effectiveness of the spark plug is reduced, which can significantly decrease the acceleration of your vehicle. If you notice that your car is running sluggishly or does not accelerate as quickly as it used to, it may be attributed to a spark plug that needs replacing.
