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.

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.

oil changes best price in bcRoutine maintenance is one of the best ways to keeping your vehicle safe on the road. And oil changes? Well, they are a critical element of your Ford’s scheduled maintenance.
The engine in your vehicle is comprised of many moving parts – and as these parts rub together, they create friction. Clean oil lubricates your engine and absorbs excess heat, thus allowing the internal components and systems in your Ford to work together effectively.
If your engine oil is old, broken down or dirty, it will not be able to do its job, which can lead to an unexpected breakdown – or worse, a major engine failure.
Your Owner’s Guide will specify how frequently you should change your Ford’s oil, but, as a rule of thumb, you can plan for at least twice a year or every 5,000 to 7,500 km. What’s more, spring is a great time to change your oil since one of the worst sources of contamination is water. Cold weather operation and short run times can lead to an increased amount of condensation in an engine’s oil. By changing the fluid, you can potentially avoid a headache down the road.
To book your spring oil change, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to speak with an advisor.

Book Your Fall Oil Change at Key West Ford

(Posted on Sep 29, 2017 at 05:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
oil changes in vancouver bcFall has finally arrived in New Westminster, B.C. and with it comes the promise of autumn hikes amongst the changing leaves, Thanksgiving road trips across the Lower Mainland, trick or treaters combing the streets of Vancouver, and many other fun festivities to ring in the new season.
It sure is an exciting time – and a busy one too! Before your schedule fills up with social commitments, consider booking an oil change at Key West Ford.
After all, a regular oil change is a very important part of proper car maintenance, but many drivers fail to keep up with this service. And the problem with missed or skipped oil changes is that it can decrease your vehicle’s performance, or worse – it can lead to engine damage, which is very expensive to repair.
Your Ford Owner’s Guide will outline the recommended service intervals for your particular make and model of vehicle. But, remember: if are an “extreme driver” (meaning you often drive in dusty or hot climates, stop-and-go traffic, or haul heavy loads), you’ll need to space your oil changes closer together. Better yet, if your Ford is equipped with an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor (IOLM), it’ll alert you to your next required oil change, taking the guesswork out of this important service.
To learn more about your maintenance intervals or to schedule your next service appointment, contact Key West Ford today to speak with an advisor. Our factory-trained Technicians will get your car or truck in tip-top shape so you can enjoy autumn to its fullest!

Oil Changes in Vancouver, B.C. – Book Yours Today!

(Posted on Aug 24, 2017 at 10:07AM by Michelle Bogle)
oil changes in new westminster bcGetting your Ford’s oil changed is an essential maintenance item, yet many drivers often forget to keep up with this service or they delay it indefinitely. The problem with missed or skipped oil changes is that it can decrease your car or truck’s performance, and it can lead to engine damage, which is very costly to repair.
That’s why at Key West Ford, we encourage all of our service customers to listen to their vehicles and to book an appointment for an oil change when the IOLM (short for Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor) displays a message on the instrument cluster. 
This smart technology is more than just a simple oil quality sensor. Rather, it’s a software based, algorithm-driven device that uses various operating conditions of the engine to determine when the oil needs changing. Certain driving habits can affect the life of the oil, as well as driving conditions, such as temperature and extreme terrain. Lighter, more moderate driving conditions and temperature will require less frequent oil changes and maintenance, while more severe driving conditions will require more frequent oil changes and maintenance. 

Of course, if you don’t have IOLM on your older model year Ford vehicle, you can still check the quality of your oil by using the dipstick. Better yet, leave it up to our service experts at Key West Ford by booking your car or truck in for a maintenance inspection.

Oil Change Advice: Are You an Extreme Driver?

(Posted on Feb 7, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre new west bcHave you ever wondered what the term “extreme driver” means? Does it make you think of stunt car drivers or race track enthusiasts with a need for speed?

While that may be true, the term extreme driver actually refers to someone who drives in punishing conditions, like high-dust areas or sizzling climates. Both can do a number on your vehicle and, as a result, increase the need for more frequent oil changes.
Here are four classic extreme driver profiles – can you relate to any?
The Stop-and-Go Commuter
Does your daily drive involve a series of stop signs, traffic lights or bumper-to-bumper traffic? If so, you are considered an extreme driver. In this type of condition, your engine may not have enough time to warm up, which can lead to unburned gasoline that mixes with your oil, thus reducing your engine’s protection. 
The High Temperature Highway Driver
While driving at higher speeds on the highway can actually help warm and lubricate the engine, blazing hot temperatures can cause your vehicle’s oil to thin, lose additives and oxidize prematurely, thus lessening its strength.
The Dusty Road Warrior
If you live near dirt roads, in polluted environments, frequent dusty construction sites or haven’t replaced your air filter in a while, you may need more frequent oil changes. When motor oil combines with dust, it can turn into an abrasive compound that erodes metals from your system. The resulting sludge can be very damaging to your vehicle’s engine.
The Heavy Hauler
Carrying or towing heavy loads can make your engine run hotter than normal. This can lead to eroded metals, thinner oil viscosity and premature oxidation, thus lessening the performance of your oil.
If you fall into one (or even more) of the profiles listed above or have fallen behind in your vehicle’s regularly scheduled maintenance, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford today to book your next oil change. 
Almost all vehicle owners know that engines require oil to work properly. That’s why oil changes are a key maintenance item on today’s cars and trucks. After all, engine oil plays an important role in a vehicle. It cools the motor, lubricates metal-on-metal contacts and removes any foreign particles and contaminants from your engine. 
But, what many vehicle owners don’t know is how oil actually goes about doing these important jobs. Well, thankfully, there’s folks like Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained, who can break down the entire process in impressive detail. 
Watch and learn:
To summarize, the engine oil starts in the engine sump (also known as an oil pan), where it is sucked up through the pickup tube to the oil pump, which then sends the oil through the filter. From there, it travels to the various engine systems, including the crankshaft, pistons and valvetrain. Next, it channels to oil return passages, where it begins the cycle again after dumping into the oil pan. 
Very scientific, right? And, whether or not you grasp the concept of how the engine oil system works, one fact remains – you rely on your Ford vehicle day-in-and-day-out. To keep it operating at optimum performance, be sure to follow your car or truck’s regular oil change schedules.

When was the Last Time You Changed Your Ford’s Oil?

(Posted on Nov 28, 2016 at 09:00PM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre ford vancouver bcMost drivers are well aware that getting the oil changed in their Ford car, truck or utility vehicle is part of the ownership experience. But, what many drivers don’t know is that an oil change is also the easiest and most affordable way to extend the life of their auto. After all, the engine is like the heart and soul of a vehicle – if you maintain it regularly, it will pay you back in dividends by running strong and with minimal issues for years to come.
But, there are still many drivers who go too long between oil changes due to some misconceptions. If you happen to be one of these drivers, allow us to clear up any confusion for you with these three commonly asked questions:
1. When do I really need to change my oil? 
It's always best to refer to your owner's manual, which will tell you exactly when your vehicle is recommended for basic services. Better yet, if your Ford car or truck is equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitor (IOLM), your vehicle will alert you when it is due for service. How’s that for simple?
2. Can my driving habits change my service intervals? 
The answer is yes. While newer engine oils are fairly durable, short-distance driving, stop-and-go traffic, heavy towing, dusty conditions and very hot or cold temperatures can cause your oil to wear down much faster. If this happens, you’ll find that your vehicle’s service intervals are shorter and closer together.
3. How much do oil changes cost? 
The cost of an oil change varies depending on the type of vehicle you drive, its engine, the type of oil it requires and other factors. Our Service Department will happily quote a price for you over the phone – simply give us a call to speak with a Service Advisor.
If have any additional questions or you think it’s time for an engine oil change, please contact us at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to book your next maintenance appointment.
winter vehicle maintenance ford vancouver bcIn a few short weeks, winter will be upon us in New Westminster, B.C. and with it will come cooler temperatures, increased precipitation and, if we’re lucky, maybe some flurries.

And, just like we prepare our bodies for winter by boosting our immune systems to ward off colds and the flu, our vehicles need some extra care too. After all, nothing is worse than waking up to a 5-degree morning and a car or truck that won’t start.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when winterizing your vehicle:
Winter Tires
If you spend most of your winter months driving in areas where the temperature falls below 7-degrees Celsius, then you should consider installing winter tires on your vehicle. Unlike all-season tires, the rubber compounds in winter tires are specially designed to offer better traction, braking and control as the temperature falls. Not sure what kind of winter tire to install? No worries – our Service Department can help you select the best winter tire to suit your vehicle and driving habits.
The oil in your engine changes depending on how hot or cold the engine is running. And, since the outside temperatures will influence the internal temperature of your engine, you need to make sure you're using the proper oil for the conditions. During the winter months, if you live where temperatures get below freezing, you'll want to switch to a thinner, less viscous oil, like a 5W-30.
Your car's coolant system is not only intended to keep your engine from overheating, but it’s also responsible for protecting your engine against corrosion. In the winter months, it’s recommended to use a coolant with ethylene glycol to prevent freezing.
The heat of summer can put a great deal of strain on your car’s battery, causing it to fail when the temperature dips closer to zero. To ensure that you aren’t left stranded, be sure to do a thorough inspection of your battery, cables and terminals to make sure that your car is ready for the winter. If you notice any cracks or breaks, that could be a sign that you are due for a replacement. If so, our Service Department can help you select the best battery for your vehicle.
Belts and Hoses
Just like you inspect your battery for any cracks or signs of corrosion, you’ll also want to inspect the belts and hoses in your vehicle. As the temperature drops, these automotive parts can become brittle and hard, causing them to fail in the cooler weather.
For more information on how to get your car, truck or SUV ready for winter, be sure to call our Service Department to book your next maintenance appointment. Not only will we inspect every component and system on your Ford, but we’ll also recommend any services that need your immediate attention to keep you safe on the roads this upcoming winter. 
lube oil filter new westThere are a number of signs that your car needs an oil change and knowing how to spot them is an easy way to make sure that your car gets the servicing that it needs. If you fail to do so, this can lead to expensive repairs down the road, which is news that no car owner ever wants.
Here are four warning signs that you are overdue for an oil change:
Loud engine sounds:
If the oil in your car is too old or deteriorated, it will cause your engine parts to rub together and create loud, unpleasant noises.
Check engine light:
If your check engine light comes on, it can mean that you are due for an oil change, or that a larger issue has arisen. The best way to find out is to have it diagnosed by a technician.
Oil looks black:
If the oil in your car looks black (think coffee coloured), then you are well overdue for an oil change. As oil ages, it collects gunk and other debris, which can clog up your engine and cause expensive repairs down the road.
Low oil level:
If your dipstick is showing that your vehicle’s oil is low, it’s time for a change. Not having enough oil in your engine can really harm your vehicle and limit its safe performance.
If you are experiencing any of these four warning signs, it’s time to get your vehicle’s oil changed. Don’t delay this any further – contact our Service Department at Key West Ford today to book your appointment.
oil change service vancouver bcOne number defines vehicle maintenance - 3000. Drivers carefully count each mile, waiting for the odometer to reveal this milestone. They know, after all, that it brings a series of inspections. It’s the foundation of their service routines.

Key West Ford thinks this foundation proves a little shaky.

As the leading service department in B.C., we recognize that every vehicle is unique. Every oil change schedule, therefore, is also unique - with maintenance needs determined by far more than a number. We embrace the principles established by Edmunds, which urge drivers to seek inspections when they:

Reach Manufacturer Standards

Every vehicle boasts a manual and within these pages lies the key to routines. Each brand has its own standards for oil changes, which are clearly outlined in the guides.

Activate Service Light

New vehicles precisely monitor oil consumption, using various data points to maintain proper levels. Should these data points reveal less-than-optimal results, they’ll then activate the service light.

Administer Testing

An oil analysis - performed by either a third-party laboratory or by a (less accurate) at-home kit - allows drivers to assess the presence of containments, debris, or fluid-inhibitors in their engines. These tests highlight potential concerns and expedite schedules.

By applying these three standards to service routines, drivers can better understand their specific oil needs - and can then seek out Key West Ford at the appropriate times.
