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.

Shock absorbers and strut assemblies work with your vehicle’s suspension, springs and tires to help ensure a smooth ride. They also work to reduce the bounce of the wheels, which makes for a more comfortable and safer ride.
Regular inspection and maintenance of your shocks and struts is very important to look for signs of wear.
In fact, shock absorbers stroke, on average, 1,000 times for every kilometer traveled! That’s a lot of strokes!
Replacing worn shocks and/or struts can help restore your car’s “new ride” feel.
Here are some common warning signs that your vehicle is due for replacement:
•Excessive tire bounce
•Early or uneven tire wear
•Reduced handling and braking performance
•Excessive body roll during cornering
•Noise and suspension vibration
•Excessive read end squatting upon acceleration
•Poor tire-to-road contact
•Excessive nose diving during braking
At Key West Ford, our Ford-trained Technicians will inspect your vehicle’s shocks and struts to ensure proper performance.
Don’t settle for a bumpy ride! Call our Service Department today to book your next maintenance appointment.

Cabin air filters protect a vehicle’s interior from dust, dirt, pollen, mold spores and other nasty airborne particles. The filters work through the HVAC systems and help provide cleaner safer air quality.
Did you know that air drawn into a vehicle through the ventilation system can contain millions of microscopic particles, which can clog a car or truck’s HVAC system and reduce performance?
It’s true! Passengers in the vehicle also breathe these particles in.
The good news is that cabin air filters remove over 90% of pollen and road dust larger than 3 microns, which is far smaller than the average human hair at 90 microns. Not only does this improve air quality, but also the performance of the HVAC system for proper heating and cooling.
What’s also interesting is that many vehicle owners are unaware that their car or truck is equipped with a cabin air filtration system, which requires regular maintenance, like filter changes, to ensure its proper function. The general rule of thumb is to replace cabin air filters at 20,000 km, or even sooner if you frequent dusty or dirty roads.
At Key West Ford, our Ford-trained Technicians will not only inspect your cabin air filter at each service, but they can also install replacement filters, which many aftermarket retailers do not stock. It only takes a few minutes to complete and is an inexpensive fix to ensure cleaner cabin air.

All drivers know that brakes make their vehicle stop.
But, what they may not understand is the relationship between the many elements of the braking system, such as the calipers, pads, rotors and shoes, and how each component works together to safely stop a moving car or truck.
That’s why it’s vital to have your brakes inspected and maintained on a regular basis to look for signs of wear.
Brake pads, especially, go through a great deal of wear each time the brake pedal is applied. In fact, the average driver applies the brakes 20 times in an 8 km trips – that’s an average of 60,000 times per year!
Here are some common warning signs that your brake components are due for replacement:
Squealing and squeaking: pads or shoes are glazed or wearing out
Grinding: pads are wearing out
Grab: contaminated brake linings or a loose or broken component
Low or fading pedal: leaks in the brake system, air in the line or the calipers need servicing
Pulling: pads are cracked or rotors are pitted and need to be machined or replaced
Pulsing: rotors are warped or scored and need to be machined or replaced
At Key West Ford, our Ford-trained Technicians will inspect your brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, brake lines and hoses, calipers and backing plates to ensure your vehicle is in top working order. We’ll also record measurements of your brake pads and shoes, so you are aware of any upcoming brake repairs for your vehicle.

A properly functioning battery is absolutely key for the safe operation of a car or truck.
The battery supplies power to the starter and ignition system to start the vehicle, provides the extra power necessary when the vehicle’s extra load requirements exceed the supply from the charging system and acts as a voltage stabilizer for the electrical system.
They play a very important role in a vehicle and, generally, start to fail at the three-year point.
Here are some warning signs to be aware of when it comes to the health of your vehicle’s battery:
• Hard starting, slow cranking
• History of charging or electrical system concerns
• Battery cables in poor condition
• Bulging or deformed battery container
• Loose battery terminals
• Leaking battery fluid
At Key West Ford, our Ford-trained Technicians will test your vehicle’s battery at every service and record the findings to ensure you won’t be left stranded.
We’ll also perform a visual inspection of the battery and its connections to look for signs of wear. If you do require a replacement, we can recommend the right battery for your vehicle.
Stay charged up!

Filters are a vital component in any vehicle as they are designed to keep harmful particles away from various systems in the vehicle, thus ensuring peak performance and engine cleanliness.
There are a number of different filters in a car or truck, including:
Oil Filters: these filters protect the interior of the engine by removing abrasives, such as carbon, sand, dust and bits of metal
Air Filters: these filters help keep the proper mix of clean air and fuel in the engine, and any harmful particles out
Fuel Filters: these filters help ensure the delivery of clean fuel from the gas tank to the engine by filtering out any impurities, which can cause serious engine problems
Cabin Air Filters: these filters protect the vehicle interior from unwanted air particles, like dust, road salt, dirt and pollen
All filters within a vehicle require regular maintenance to ensure increased fuel efficiency and optimal engine performance. A poorly maintained filter can lead to serious car troubles and costly repairs, which is why it’s key to follow your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedules.
In general, oil and filters should be replaced every six months; however, they should be replaced more regularly in heavy-duty conditions. This includes towing, carrying heavy loads, extensive idling, constant stop-and-go traffic, commercial operations, dusty or off-road conditions.
Are you due for an oil and filter change?
We can help! Contact our Service Department today to book your next maintenance appointment.
Across New Westminster drivers are celebrating the arrival of spring - knowing that it brings the promise of sunny days and open roads. That promise is all too easily broken, however, in the wake of a faulty battery.
Winter always takes a toll on car batteries, pummeling them with increased loads (heated seats, fog lights, and wipers all strain the system) and dangerous weather. Plummeting temperatures damage power outputs, and the endless snow affects every charge - leaving plugs unable to make the necessary connections. All of the components weaken, and this makes spring adventures difficult.
Come to Key West Ford. Our dedicated team will examine your car’s battery, ensuring that it delivers optimum charges. We provide inspections, testinga, and replacements - helping each driver achieve seamless starts. This will maximize every mile and prevent sudden breakdowns.
No longer suffer the effects of winter. Let our team instead provide relief!
To schedule an appointment with our Service Department contact us today. Be sure to ask about our multi-point inspection options and any available rewards programs as well.
Spring will soon arrive - and with it will come heavy heat and long days, with the sticky-sweet humidity clinging to every road. Air conditioning, therefore, will prove essential for every driver, sparing them the rising temperatures.
Too often, however, do units fail - with the remnants of winter taxing the systems, flooding the vents with ice, snow, and salt. Drivers experience a series of complications, all resulting in weak air streams and hot cabins.
Do these symptoms sound familiar?
Banging or Rattling Noises.
Excessive Water Drainage.
Low Air Pressure.
Each of these signs suggests a compromised unit - which is why Key West Ford recommends visiting our Service Department. Our experienced technicians examine every system with the greatest of care, identifying damaged cooling fans, low refrigerant levels, clogged filters, and more. We then provide drivers with cost-effective solutions and help them achieve optimum air streams. This ensures that every cabin stays comfortable during the spring.
No longer dread the season. Embrace it instead with cool, consistent air.

The birds are singing; the flowers are blooming; the temperature is slowly (but steadily) rising. Winter is finally slinking away, clearing the B.C. borders for spring - and the Key West team is ready to hit the road, wanting to take advantage of the new season and the new year.
We know we’re not alone. On March 20th spring will begin, signaling the start of many family vacations and cross-country road-trips. A sense of exploration will lead drivers away from the city limits.
It’s time for a spring inspection. Let our service technicians provide a comprehensive, multi-point examination of every vehicle - verifying safety, optimizing performance, and ensuring road-worthy readiness through:
Oil and Filter Changes.
Brake Pad Replacements.
Battery Repairs and Replacements.
... and much more!
We connect drivers to the factory standards they deserve, with our team boasting experience with the world’s leading marques. Trust us for precise repairs and cost-effective servicing.
A misaligned suspension is a dangerous suspension. According to a recent AutoZone study, worn components drastically impact a vehicle’s responses - increasing needed stoppage distance by 12.3-ft. (or 11.7%) at 50 MPH and 22.6-ft. (or 11.2%) at 70 MPH. This reduces overall efficiency by 50%.
This, Key West Ford knows, proves potentially deadly on the road - impacting each driver’s ability to navigate sudden stops and forcing them to engage in less than optimal maneuvering. It’s vital, therefore, to recognize the signs of faulty suspensions and seek immediate servicing. Common issues include:
Should any of these signs appear, Key West Ford recommends that drivers visit our Service Department. There they’ll receive multi-point inspections, identifying the source of the misalignment. Cost-effective solutions will then be offered to fix this problem and optimize each vehicle’s performance.
Don’t risk another mile of poor stoppage. Come to Key West Ford today.
Dirty miles stretch before you - an endless series of dust, gravel, and endless puddles. The season has left the roads wet and unforgiving; and you glance toward your car, wondering if the filter is sturdy enough for the journey. It’s been... quite a while since you even spared it a thought.
Key West Ford suggests offering your engine more than a mere thought. Visit us instead for a filter replacement.
Air filters prove essential to the performance of every vehicle, with Cars.com reporting that clogged components negatively impact acceleration by up to 11%. This reduces both power and speed, and it even compromises overall economy. It becomes crucial, therefore, to regularly change these options to ensure steady results.
Too often, though, do drivers forget about their filters - instead leaving countless contaminants, debris, and oil traces in their engine. Years of abuse eventually take a toll.
Don’t let this happen. Instead follow this simple model for determining when a filter change is needed:
One: Inspection. View the filter to assess its condition. Should it prove dirty - with the intake edges blackened - it may be time for a change.
Two: Specifications. Check your manufacturer manual to see how often it recommends a change. Each brand is different. Ford, for example, usually suggests 30,000 miles but Chevrolet often claims 45,000. Study each guide with care to gauge the proper maintenance times.
Should either of these elements reveal a need for a new filter, come to Key West Ford. We’ll provide a quick and efficient replacement for every model.
