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.

Buy Replacement Wiper Blades in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Nov 28, 2017 at 04:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
With winter’s arrival just mere weeks away, now is a good time to consider replacing the wiper blades on your Ford car or truck. Because, let’s be honest: before we know it, the cold, wet stuff will be gracing our windshields across the Lower Mainland.
Similar to the tires on your vehicle, your wipers are made out of rubber, which can deteriorate, dry out, split and crack over time. When this happens, the blades can’t function properly, thus limiting your visibility on the roads.
If you notice chattering, banding or streaking, these are telltale signs that you are overdue for new blades. It’s always best to be proactive and replace your wipers before they fail, like every six months.
Here’s Lauren Fix, The Car Car Coach, with some additional tips and tricks:
Think you might be due for a replacement set of wipers? Our knowledgeable Service Advisors and Technicians at Key West Ford can help. Not only do we carry high-quality Motorcraft replacement blades, but we can also recommend and install the best set to fit your Ford. 
For more information, please contact our dealership in New Westminster, B.C.
vehicle detailing in vancouver bcWith shorter days upon us, the time we spend driving at night increases, as do the risks associated with poor visibility. This is why proper headlight maintenance is very important come the fall and winter months. 
To help you get your Ford car or truck road-ready for night driving, follow these simple headlight maintenance tips:
Replace lights before they burn out
Headlights dim over time and lose their brightness, so we always recommend that drivers replace their bulbs before they burn out. We also suggest that you replace your bulbs in pairs so you always have an even field of brightness on both sides of the vehicle. 
Consider upgrading your headlights
If you drive an older model year vehicle or have basic bulbs installed, upgrading to a better set of headlights can increase your down-road visibility by leaps and bounds. Your Service Advisor can recommend various bulbs to suit your vehicle, budget and needs.
Restore your headlights
Over time, plastic headlights can look cloudy and faded. This is caused by degradation of the sun’s bright rays, which reduces how much light is diffused through the lens, making it harder to see at night. There are many DIY restoration kits that you can do in your own driveway, which can improve your headlight’s shine by up to three times.

Properly aim your headlights
It’s important to properly align and aim your headlights to ensure that the light is projecting down the road, and not into the eyes of oncoming drivers. Misaligned headlights also decrease your visibility where and when you need it most.
Headlight maintenance is an easy and cost-effective way to show your Ford vehicle some love, while also ensuring your safety and those around you. To learn more, please contact our Service Department today.

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.

Be Prepared for Winter Driving in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Nov 25, 2017 at 11:08AM by Michelle Bogle)
Slippery or snow-covered roads, reduced visibility and freezing temperatures: these are all conditions that make winter driving difficult across the Lower Mainland. They also amplify steering, braking and tire problems, which can leave you stranded on the side of the road.
Should you find yourself dealing with an unexpected breakdown, you want to be prepared. This includes having a winter emergency kit in your Ford car or truck, so that you stay safe and warm until help arrives.
Here’s Lauren Fix, The Car Coach, with some must-have items:
To recap, you never want to leave home without the following items in your emergency kit. Most can be picked up at your local department store for just a few dollars:
First aid kit
Fuel injector cleaner
Tire inflation product
Magnetic flares
Jumper cables
Protein bars
Bottles of water
Cell phone charger
Washer fluid
Kitty litter

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.

Winterize Your Ford in New Westminster, B.C.

(Posted on Nov 16, 2017 at 06:24AM by Michelle Bogle)
winter tires in vancouver bcWhile we don’t get the same amount of snow as other parts of Canada, we do experience our fair share of winter in the Lower Mainland, B.C. And while driving on icy or snow-covered roads can be difficult, you’ll have a better chance of staying safe if you winterize your Ford before the temperature starts to drop.
Not sure how best to get your vehicle winter-ready? Here are some must-do maintenance items to complete this November:
1. Install winter tires:
As soon as the temperature drops below 7 degrees Celsius, you will benefit from the enhanced traction and grip that winter tires provide. Be sure to also check the air pressure, as cold air can cause the pressure in your tires to drop, which can affect your Ford’s ability to grip ice and snow.
2. Check, change and top up fluids:
This includes everything from engine coolant and oil to windshield washer fluid and gas. Over the winter, always try to keep your gas topped up to avoid condensation in the tank. 
3. Inspect wiper blades, battery, brakes and belts:
If any of these parts or components are showing wear, are in need of replacement or have passed their life expectancy, be sure to replace them now to avoid an unexpected breakdown on a cold, snowy night.
4. Check your air conditioning and block heater:
You’re a/c is responsible for defrosting and de-humidifying the inside of your car, so you want to make sure it’s functioning even in the winter months. The same goes for your Ford’s block heater.
5. Inspect your exhaust systems:
Look for leaks in exhaust pipes or the muffler, as this can cause carbon monoxide poisoning and decreased fuel efficiency. 
6. Pack an emergency kit:
This should include some cold-weather supplies for you and your passengers, like a blanket, extra
hats and mitts, ice scraper, shovel, road salt, first aid kit, bottled water, snacks, etc. Should an unexpected breakdown occur, you want to be prepared.

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.
battery inspections in bcYour Ford’s starting and charging systems are important components of your vehicle, as they ensure dependable and reliable operation each time you get behind the wheel. 
This includes your battery. Its job is to store electrical energy, which the starter converts into a mechanical force to turn the engine on. If the battery is dead or not functioning as it should, your vehicle won’t get very far.
What Causes Wear?
There are four common causes of battery wear:
1. Driving habits, such as frequent engine on/off cycles
2. Extreme weather conditions, mainly in the winter and summer
3. Usage and vehicle age
4. Excessive electrical draw, like from in-vehicle entertainment systems
What to Look For?
Here is a list of battery failure warning signs. If you experience any of these issues, it’s best to bring your vehicle in for a service inspection:
Dim headlights and interior lights  
Illuminated Check Engine and/or Battery Light
Accessories fail to operate 
Car doesn’t start or starts slow 
Engine whines or squeals when running 
Trust Our Service Experts
At Key West Ford, our factory-trained Technicians can help you keep your battery operating in optimal condition, or recommend a replacement should you need a new battery.

Steering and Suspension Inspections in Vancouver, B.C.

(Posted on Oct 16, 2017 at 05:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford inspection service in vancouver bcThe steering and suspension systems in your Ford vehicle are key safety systems that relate to your car or truck’s handling and ride quality. Over time, these components begin to wear out and require replacement. 
As such, regular inspections are required at least once a year (in conjunction with a wheel alignment) to look for signs of wear.

What Causes Wear?
Factors that affect wear can include your:
Driving habits
Operating conditions (i.e. potholes)
Vehicle type
Type of steering and suspension system
Frequency of regular maintenance
Of course, if you are an “extreme driver” (i.e. one that drives on tough terrain in dusty, dirty, stop-and-go and/or hot conditions), you may find that your steering and suspension systems need component replacements more frequently, compared to someone who does light commuting. 

What to Look For?
If you notice that your Ford pulls to one side, has uneven tire wear, is loud, vibrates, bounces or loses control, you need to bring your vehicle in for an inspection right away, as these are key warning signs of a suspension or steering issue. If left unfixed, you risk having an expensive repair down the road, which is never a pleasant surprise.
