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.

tire changeovers best price in bcWith the beginning of March upon us, you might be itching to swap out your winter tires (if your vehicle is equipped with them) and re-install your all-seasons or summers. March is typically a great time to switch your rubber in the Lower Mainland since the chance of cold temps, ice and snow are slim.
But, before you make the swap, there are a few things to remember:
It is not recommended to remove your winter tires if the temperature will dip below 7 degrees Celsius. This is the range where the performance of the specialized rubber comes into play by offering better traction and stopping abilities compared to all-seasons. 
If you don't have space to store your winter tires, you'll want to figure that out since improper storage can damage the rubber. A garage is a great spot to keep them, but you won't want to stack them more than four tires high or hang them from the bead. If you don't have space at home, ask your Service Advisor about our tire storage options. 
Proper tires
If the tires you are swapping into are damaged, worn or the wrong fitment for your vehicle, you'll need to purchase replacements for your Ford. When you come in for your changeover appointment, the new tires can be installed at the same time by our factory-trained Technicians.
To book your spring tire changeover appointment, contact us at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C.
Just like you rotate your mattresses or couch cushions in your home, the same should be true about the rubber on your Ford. The purpose of regular tire rotations is to extend the life of your tires, and it's an easy automotive maintenance item to have done to your vehicle.
But, a common question we often hear is, "How often?" 
Our answer is this: as a general rule of thumb, you should rotate your tires every time you have an oil change completed on your vehicle. Or, if you prefer to go based on mileage, it's best to follow what's stated in your Ford's Owner Guide, which can range anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 km, depending on your vehicle, its regular operating conditions and the like. Any longer than that and you risk shortening the lifespan of your rubber or experiencing a failure.

Best Winter Tire Brands in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Jan 1, 2018 at 07:49AM by Michelle Bogle)
winter tires in vancouver bcWith winter in full swing, it’s important to have the proper tires installed on your Ford car or truck so that you can tackle all road conditions no matter the weather.
But, you might be thinking…
“Vancouver doesn’t get hammered with snow.” 
“Do I really need winter tires for my vehicle?” 
“My Ford is equipped with all-wheel drive.” 
“I’ve got enough traction with my all-season tires.”
Regardless, winter tires are an important safety component on your Ford, designed to handle the cold. Rubber compounds found in all-season and summer tires stiffen up once temperatures drop below 7 degrees Celsius, resulting in poor traction and stopping abilities. The physical construction of a winter tire is also different with a special tread design and enhanced rubber compounds.
And when it comes to selecting the right cold weather tire for your vehicle, there are many brands to consider. In fact, the selection is so wide that some B.C. drivers become overwhelmed with their choices that they have a hard time deciding which manufacturer to go with.
To help narrow down your selection, here’s a list of top winter tires designed to get you through the harshest Canadian driving conditions, as compiled by
BFGoodrich Winter T/A KSI
Bridgestone Blizzak
Continental WinterContact SI
General Tire Altimax Arctic
Hankook iPike
Kumho Wintercraft WP71
Michelin X-Ice Xi3
Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8
Remember, each of these winter tire options comes with their own list of benefits and advantages, as well as specifications and price points. 
To ensure that you select the right winter tire brand and make for your vehicle (and in the appropriate size), be sure to contact our Service Department at Key West Ford to speak with one of our tire experts. We’ll help you find the best set to suit your driving habits and budget. 

Tire Pressure Maintenance Tips in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Nov 25, 2017 at 11:18AM by Michelle Bogle)
tire inspections in vancouverYour bags are packed, the trunk is loaded with gifts and you are anxious to hit the road to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. But, wait – you don’t want to forget something very important: your tires. They are a vital part of your journey – more important than your road trip snacks or playlists.
To ensure your tires are ready for their long drive, here are some key maintenance tips:
The tire pressure (PSI) requirement for your vehicle can be found in your Ford Owner’s Guide or listed on the sticker located on the driver’s side doorjamb. Numbers are also on the sidewall of your tires, but you always want to follow what is stated in your guide or on your vehicle.
To achieve the most accurate tire pressure reading, make sure your tires are “cool” – as in, not driven on. 
Once you find your PSI requirement, grab your tire gauge and locate the valve stem cap on your wheel. Unscrew the cap and press the tire gauge onto the stem for one to two seconds. Do the same thing for all four tires and compare your readings with the number specific to your vehicle.
If you need to inflate your tires, use a portable air compressor or visit your local gas station. Remove the stem valve cap, attach the air hose to the stem, then press the lever to activate the airflow. Fill up the tire, then use your tire gauge to see how much air has been inflated.
If your tires are overinflated, you can use your tire gauge to release air by pressing down on the valve stem head. Once you have reached the desired PSI, screw the cap back on.
Always keep a tire gauge in your vehicle so you can check your pressure on a regular basis.
If you have questions about your vehicle’s tire pressure or recommended PSI, contact our Service Department today to book a maintenance appointment. We'll inspect your tires to make sure they are in excellent shape and properly inflated for your next road trip.

Get Winter Tire Ready with Key West Ford in B.C.

(Posted on Oct 31, 2017 at 08:59PM by Michelle Bogle)
deals onwinter tire packages in bcWhether we want to accept it or not, winter is headed its way to the Lower Mainland. And while you’re digging out hats, boots and warm coats for yourself, you should also consider the needs of your Ford car or truck. 
This includes purchasing and installing winter tires on your vehicle.
While we may not get covered in snow each year, we do deal with our fair share of precipitation in New Westminster. As the temperature drops, this causes summer and all-season tires to lose their traction and control on slick roads, especially once it hits 7 degrees Celsius. This is also the temperature where winter tires kick into performance, thanks to the special rubber compounds that are designed to improve surface grip.
Rather than risk your safety (and those around you) this season, consider speaking with one of our knowledgeable Service Advisors regarding your winter tire needs. We’ll help you select the right type of rubber to suit your driving habits, road conditions and budget, plus we can install them for you too.
To learn more, please contact our Service Department today to book your appointment or visit us anytime at 301 Stewardson Way to inquire about special promotions on winter tire packages.

Tire Maintenance and Repairs in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Oct 23, 2017 at 05:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
tire repair shops in vancouver bcThe rubber on your four tires is what connects your Ford to the road and, if not properly maintained, can affect your vehicle’s ride quality, traction and safety. Your tires have an important job, that’s for sure!
That’s why it’s critical to always keep up with your regular maintenance and repairs to reduce unnecessary tire wear and to improve your vehicle’s handling and fuel economy.
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. Have your Ford’s alignment checked (on all four tires) at least once a year or when you notice any signs of improper handling or uneven wear. Our Technicians can adjust the camber, caster, toe and thrust angle to help remedy the problem.
2. Always request a wheel alignment when you purchase a new set of tires to extend the life of the rubber.
3. Once a month, check the inflation pressure on all four tires, plus the spare. If it is too low or too high, be sure to adjust it to the recommended pressure.
4. Follow the service interval in your Owner’s Guide for tire rotations and opt to have your wheels balanced at the same time to reduce wear on shock absorbers and struts.
5. When servicing or installing new tires, inspect your vehicle’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) at the same time to ensure proper function.

Please contact our Service Department at Key West Ford to book your next maintenance appointment. Our experts will ensure that your tires are in great condition and we can even recommend and install replacement tires should your car, truck or SUV require a new set.

Fall Tire Inspections in New Westminster, B.C.

(Posted on Sep 7, 2017 at 02:06PM by Michelle Bogle)
Whether we want to believe it or not, summer is winding down and autumn is about to make its colourful appearance. And with that comes cooler temperatures, wet roads, fallen leaves and possibly even frost warnings. 
If your tires are running low on tread, this could spell trouble in bad weather situations. That’s why we recommend that all Key West Ford customers inspect their tires at least once a month (or before embarking on a long road trip) to look for signs of tire wear.
An easy way to do this is by completing a quarter test. Here’s how:
1. Hold a quarter between your thumb and forefinger with the quarter head facing down.
2. Select a point on your tire where the tread appears to be the lowest. Insert the figurehead first into one of the grooves.
3. If the top of the figurehead is covered by tread, you're driving with a safe amount of tread. If your tread gets below that (approximately 1.5 mm), your tread life is reduced.
Most tire brands also come with built-in tread wear indicators as part of their construction. If these indicators are worn, then it’s time to replace your tires – and soon. 
Want to learn more?
Please contact our Service Department at Key West Ford to book your next maintenance appointment. Our experts will ensure that your tires are in great condition and we can even recommend and install replacement tires, should your car, truck or SUV require a new set. Call us today!
When was the last time you had the tires rotated on your Ford car, truck or SUV? If it’s been longer than 12,000 km, you are well overdue!
Tire rotations are so much more than moving tires around to different wheel positions on your vehicle. They also ensure that the rubber wears evenly and maintains optimal traction, thus extending the life of your tires and keeping you safe on the roads. Plus, when you keep up with regular rotations, you maintain your tire manufacturer’s warranty, which is very important. 
Watch here for more:
So, when should you have your tires rotated? The rule of thumb is every 8,000 to 12,000 km, or as stated in your Ford’s Owner Guide. Any longer than that and you risk shortening the life span of your rubber or experiencing a failure.
To book your tire rotation, please contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. Before we rotate your tires, our factory-trained Technicians will also inspect your rubber and, if you require a replacement, we’ll happily recommend the best options to suit your budget, vehicle and driving habits. 
tire inspections in vancouver bcSpring is officially here in New Westminster, B.C. If you have winter tires installed on your vehicle, you might be wondering: “Is it time to switch to my all-season or summer tires?”
Great question.
There are a few things to consider before booking your appointment at our Service Department for a tire changeover. Here are three factors that can influence your timing:
Winter tire laws
In B.C., drivers must obey winter tire and chain signs throughout the province from October 1 to March 31. If you plan to drive in any areas where these signs are posted, you’ll want to book your spring tire changeover April 1st or later. 
Weather conditions
It's safe to remove your winter tires once the average daily high is above 7 degrees Celsius, and the risk of snow or frost has passed. Keep an eye on the averages in your area and look at the long-range forecast before switching. 
Proper storage
Before you book your changeover appointment, be sure that you have a proper place to store your tires so that they don’t get damaged or stolen. If you don’t have space to store your tires at home, ask your Service Advisor about our tire storage options. Or, if you do have space in your garage or basement, always stack your tires no more than four high and never hang them – that will damage the bead. You’ll also want to store them in a cool, dry place and in proper storage bags to protect the rubber.
Remember: Winter tires are supposed to last several seasons. But, prolonged use in warm conditions (above 7 degrees Celsius) will cause premature wear, which means that you’ll need to replace your winter tires sooner. If you are within the legal requirements of the province, expecting decent weather conditions and have a proper place to store your tires, then it’s best to make the switch to your all-season or summer tires.
Are you ready for a change? If so, contact Key West Ford today to book your spring tire changeover appointment.
