Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.

Car Service and Maintenance Tips For Vancouver B.C. Drivers

Vancouver Vehicle Maintenance: Quarterly Inspections for Your Ford

Tags:
(Posted on Sep 10, 2018 at 04:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford service and maintenance vancouver bcOwning a vehicle – whether new or preowned – is an exciting milestone in a person’s life. It’s likely an expense you saved for or are financing each month, so you want to ensure that you are caring for it properly for many years to come. 
 
An important part of vehicle ownership is keeping up with regular maintenance. Not only will this ensure that your car or truck is safe and reliable, but that it’s enjoyable to drive each day and is fuel efficient.
 
To help you keep your Ford in tip-top shape, follow these quarterly inspections from the comfort of your driveway:
 
1. Look and listen for issues: Take your vehicle for a spin around the block and listen for any grinding, whining, knocking or creaking. These sounds are often drowned out by passengers, music and other road sounds, so it’s important to complete this exercise every three months, in case there is an issue that needs addressing. Also, look at your dash to see if any warning lights are on. You'd be surprised by how many drivers ignore these!
 
2. Clean and wax your car: Caring for the interior and exterior of your Ford will keep it looking good for a long time. After vacuuming out the cabin, give all of the surfaces a good wipe down using car care products to protect their finishes, then follow up the exterior with a thorough hand washing and waxing. Don’t forget to clean the windows and mirrors for added visibility.
 
3. Check your windshield wipers and headlights: Speaking of visibility, you’ll want to inspect your wiper blades for breakage or splitting and replace them as needed. If your headlights are burnt out or cracked, those will need replacements as well.
 
After completing these quarterly checks, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to schedule a maintenance appointment, should you have any concerns about your vehicle. Our team of factory-trained Technicians will get your Ford back into optimal condition for your safety and enjoyment.

Vancouver Vehicle Maintenance: What to Inspect Each Month

ford automotive service centre vancouver bcAs a Ford owner, you made a wise purchase decision when you bought your car or truck from our dealership. We want you to get the most out of your on-road enjoyment for many years to come, which is why we recommend that you keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance. 
 
To help you stay ahead of any repairs or replacements, there are many preventative checks that you can do each month from the comfort of your driveway. Not only will these tips help keep you safer on Vancouver’s roads, but it can save you money by ensuring optimal fuel economy.
 
1. Inspect your tires: Get nice and low to the ground and give all four wheels a thorough once-over, looking for uneven tread wear or embedded objects, like nails, that could cause leaks.
 
2. Check your tire pressure: The best time to check your tire pressure is when your Ford has been parked for at least three hours. Using a tire gauge, make sure that the pressure is within the recommended PSI level, as noted in your Owner’s Guide or on the driver’s door panel. Improperly inflated tires can decrease your vehicle’s fuel economy, so be sure that your levels are within the ideal range.
 
3. Check your fluids: Pop the hood and inspect your engine oil, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, brake fluid, and windshield washer fluid. If you notice any are low, call our Service Department to book a maintenance appointment.

Ford Service Questions in Vancouver: Can a Dirty Air Filter Stop My Car from Starting?

Tags:
(Posted on Aug 10, 2018 at 04:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford service and maintenance repairs in vancouver bcHave you ever got up close to the grille of your Ford after a summer road trip, only to find the front end covered in bugs and road debris? Pretty gross.

Now, imagine if your vehicle didn’t have an air filter to catch the grime. All of that mess could contaminate the engine and hurt its performance.
 
Thankfully, your Ford is equipped with an air filter to protect your engine from dirt. However, if you let your filter get too filthy, it will starve the engine of air, which the combustion process relies on to make power.
 
But, can a dirty air filter stop your car from starting? Technically, yes. However, it would need to be extremely soiled for the engine to not run. In most cases, drivers with a grimy air filter find that their performance is hampered because the engine can’t take in the right amount of air to power itself. It can also cause poor fuel economy and damage to your spark plugs.
 
The best way to avoid this problem is by keeping up with your Ford’s recommended maintenance intervals, as outlined in your Owner’s Guide. If you are due for an air filter replacement, it’s recommended that you follow through on the repair to ensure optimal performance. And, let’s not forget: a seized engine is much costlier to repair than to replace a filter. Preventative maintenance is the way to go! 
 
To learn more, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to speak with an advisor.
ford service centre in vancouver bcMost drivers are aware that they need to perform routine maintenance on their car or truck to keep it in top running condition, but sometimes these important tasks can fall to the wayside. However, when your brakes start to squeak, squeal or grind, or you notice that your stopping distance has lengthened, it’s time to have your brake components inspected.
 
Your Ford’s braking system consists of three main parts: the pads, rotors and calipers. When you engage the brake, the master cylinder sends fluid to the calipers, which squeeze together, exerting pressure on the pads. If the calipers are damaged or seized, they cannot do their job effectively.
 
The same is true with your pads. If they are worn, the brake pads cannot make a smooth connection with the rotors, which can lead to uneven wear. Rotors can be costly to replace, therefore, it’s important to make sure that your pads have enough friction material to avoid prolonged damage to your braking system. Everything works in unison – if one component is not functioning correctly, the entire system will suffer. 
 
The best way to ensure optimal brake performance is to keep up with your Ford’s recommended maintenance schedule, which includes regular brake inspections. If a component is due for replacement, our skilled Technicians can advise of the issue before it becomes a costly repair, thus keeping you safer on Vancouver’s roads.

ford service in lower mainland vancouver bcNowadays, vehicles are more sophisticated and complex than ever before. 
 
According to the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the average car or truck has upwards of 20 computers that help manage everything from the sunroof and anti-lock braking system to the electronically controlled transmission. These are smart machines and they need to be maintained by trained Technicians that can properly diagnose an issue and complete a solid repair.
 
That’s where our Service Experts come in at Key West Ford. Unlike independent mechanics, our factory-trained Technicians know your Ford best!

ford service centre in lower mainland bcWith summer’s arrival, the days are longer, which means that your Ford’s lighting system may not get used as frequently. But, this important system still needs regular TLC to ensure optimal performance when driving at night. 
 
Over time, bulbs burn out and headlights come misaligned or cracked from everyday use. Here are some tips to keep your lighting system in top shape, while also ensuring your safety on B.C.’s roads:
 
Keep headlights, tail lights and signal lights clean since dirt and debris can reduce your visibility.
 
Make sure that your headlights are properly aimed so that they don’t shine directly into the eyes of other drivers.
 
Always replace headlights in sets of two to ensure an even field of vision.
 
Restore cloudy headlight lenses caused by degradation from the sun’s bright rays for better visibility.
 
Replace bulbs proactively – don’t wait for them to burn out; change them before your safety is compromised.
 
Don’t overdrive your headlights – you should be able to stop inside the illuminated area; anything more than that creates a blind crash area in front of your vehicle.
 
If you can’t remember the last time you changed out your headlights or if you feel like your visibility at night time is poor, now is a good time to consider an upgrade. 
 
For more information, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. to book your headlight maintenance appointment.
ford service centre in vancouver bcFor many Lower Mainlanders, the months of July and August are road trip season. The kids are out of school, you have vacation time to burn and there are plenty of attractions and events to check out across B.C.

But, before 
you load your luggage into the trunk of your Ford, you’ll want to make sure that its components and safety systems are up for the trek.
 
Here’s what to check before you set out on your summer road trip: 
 
Complete a 360-degree visual inspection 
Look for worn tires and wipers, broken lights, chips or cracks in the windshield, and fluid leaks.
 
Check your Ford’s fluids
Check the oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, clutch fluid, power-steering fluid, engine coolant, and windshield washer fluid. If anything is low, dirty, or leaking, contact our Service Department for a maintenance appointment. 
 
Inspect hoses and belts
Look for softness, cracks, nicks, bulges, blistering, or other damage on your engine’s hoses and belts. If you do spot these issues, it’s time for a replacement.
 
Examine your battery
There’s nothing worse than a dead battery while road tripping. Look for signs of wear and corrosion, or if your battery is getting on in the years, consider proactively replacing it to avoid disappointment.  
 
Check your HVAC system
Stay cool behind the wheel and keep your family content by ensuring that your Ford’s HVAC system is in good working order. Before leaving on your trip, test the system for proper air flow and temperature.

Ford Brake Care Tips for Drivers in Vancouver, B.C.

Tags:
(Posted on Jun 22, 2018 at 06:49AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford maintenance services in vancouver bcYour brakes are one of the most important safety components on your Ford and they deserve frequent attention to ensure their optimal performance. Lack of maintenance and improper driving techniques can put stress on your braking system and cause the parts to wear faster, which can result in a costly repair.

Instead, look after your brakes by following these tips and tricks from our Service Department at Key West Ford:
 
Take it slow
The speed at which your vehicle travels will affect its ability to stop quickly and efficiently. Rather than always having your pedal to the metal, consider slowing down. Stopping from a high speed requires more energy, which also wears down the brake material. 
 
Leave it behind
A heavy, overloaded vehicle can cause unnecessary strain on your brakes when stopping. If you don’t need your cargo box, hockey bag or golf clubs with you, leave them at home. This will also help improve your Ford’s efficiency.
 
Give it a flush
Flushing your brake fluid regularly keeps everything functioning safely, which will help your brake parts last longer. Your Ford’s Owner Guide will outline regular inspection and replacement intervals, so you can always stay on top of this maintenance task.
 
Get them inspected
The best way to spot an issue with your Ford’s braking system is by having it inspected regularly by one of our factory-trained Technicians. By using special diagnostic testing and taking measurements of your brake material, our team is able to detect small problems before they become a larger, more costly repair.

Vancouver Vehicle Maintenance: How to Spot a Failing Windshield Wiper Blade

Tags:
(Posted on May 31, 2018 at 08:07AM by Michelle Bogle)
where to buy wiper blades in vancouver bcWindshield wiper blades are an often-forgotten maintenance item on vehicles, yet they are a key safety feature designed to help you see better while driving. In order to effectively clean your windshield of water, ice, dirt, bugs and other debris, your wipers need to be inspected regularly to ensure proper operation.
 
As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended that you inspect your wiper blades each time you fill up on gas and replace them every six months, but certain conditions and extreme weather can shorten that timeframe. Regardless, it’s a quick and easy service item that’s inexpensive to complete – one that we can handle for you at our Service Department at Key West Ford.
 
Here are some wiper replacement warning signs to watch out for:
 
- Streaking
- Bouncing
- Screeching
- Visible damage to the blade 
- Hard, brittle rubber
- Uneven clearing
 
In the event that you experience one or more of the above situations, you’ll want to book a service appointment at our dealership for a wiper blade replacement. Our advisors can recommend the right part for your Ford vehicle and get you back on the road safely and efficiently with better visibility.

where to buy cabin air filters in vancouver bcIt’s that time of year – the trees are budding, the dandelions are blooming, and your allergies are out of control. There is little reprieve from the pollen and your itchy eyes and running nose are proof. Usually, the inside of your vehicle will bring relief, but if you find that you are still suffering, it might be time to have your cabin air filter inspected and/or replaced.
 
The job of your Ford’s cabin air filter is simple: to help keep the air in the passenger compartment of your vehicle clean from dust, pollen, smoke, and other pollutants entering the HVAC system. However, if it is clogged or due for replacement, the filter will become ineffective and eventually interfere with air flow to the ventilation system.
 
Here are some warning signs of a failing cabin air filter:
 
A decline in air flow to the HVAC system 
A noisy fan as it works harder to push air through the dirty filter
A bad smell when you turn on the air in your Ford
 
As a general rule of thumb, it is best to replace your cabin air filter every 20,000 – 25,000 km. However, your Owner’s Guide will list the required interval for your specific Ford model.
 
To learn more or to schedule your appointment for a filter replacement, contact our Service Department at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C.
