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.

Prevent Damaging Your Ford with Scheduled Maintenance

Tags:
(Posted on Jun 8, 2017 at 07:18AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford service vancouver bcSpending a little on regular maintenance can go a long way towards preventing major damage to your vehicle. But, if you don't keep up with this maintenance, you risk damaging important vehicle components and paying for costly repairs:
 
Engine Failure/Damage
Replacing your engine comes with an expensive price tag and can be caused by several things, like a broken timing belt, failed fuel or water pump, broken rod, broken alternator, damaged valve, etc. Regularly scheduled maintenance can ward off these issues, saving you a bundle in engine replacement costs.
 
Failed Transmission
Wear and tear on a transmission can happen if you have extreme driving habits, tow excessive loads or don't keep up with regular transmission fluid maintenance. Like the engine, a failed transmission is an expensive fix – one that could be avoided with regular service.
 
Catalytic Converter Damage
Your catalytic converter is the component of your exhaust system that reduces the amount of harmful pollutants in your exhaust. If it fails, it’s likely because you’ve ignored another problem under your hood, like a poorly tuned engine, misfiring spark plugs or a faulty oxygen sensor.
 
Rotor/Drum Damage
Over time, your brake pads and shoes wear out from friction and need to be replaced. It’s important to avoid getting to the metal-to-metal point, which can severely damage your rotors or drums and lead to an expensive repair bill. 
 
Don't leave your Ford's maintenance until it's too late! To book your next service appointment, please contact our dealership to speak with an advisor.

Maintaining Your Ford: What to Check and When

(Posted on May 26, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre vancouver bcTaking care of your Ford car or truck by following its recommended maintenance schedule is key to ensuring that your vehicle remains safe and reliable. It can also reduce your long- and short-term costs, including repairs and gas, maintain its resale value and help protect the environment through reduced emissions. Sounds like a win-win, right? Well, it is!
 
Your Owner’s Guide is a great place to start when learning about your Ford’s maintenance requirements, including what systems to check and when. But, for a general overview, you can also follow this checklist, which shares monthly and yearly checks for your vehicle: 
 
Check Monthly
Interior and exterior lights
Tire inflation and tread condition 
Windshield washer fluid level 
 
Check Every 6 Months/7,000 km
Chassis lubrication
Coolant (antifreeze) level 
Finish (rust, scratches, dents) 
Horn
Power steering fluid level 
Transmission fluid level
Wiper blades 
 
Check Every 12 Months/20,000 km
Battery and cables 
Belts
Brake system 
Cabin air filter 
Engine air filter 
Exhaust system 
Hoses 
HVAC System
Steering and suspension

Extend the Life of Your Ford with Regular Maintenance

Tags:
(Posted on May 7, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive maintenance provider vancouver bcWhether you drive an older Ford Mustang or a newer F-150 that’s still under warranty, regularly scheduled maintenance is key to extending the life of your vehicle. Over time, components begin to wear, which can lead to larger issues or repairs. The best way to avoid this is by inspecting your Ford on an on-going basis.
 
Here are four key areas to pay attention to:
 
Inspect your tires 
Uneven wear or unbalanced tires can stress the suspension on your car or truck. To avoid this, have your tires rotated on a regular basis and inspect the alignment too. Not only will this extend the life of your tires, but your vehicle as a whole.
 
Check your fluids
The fluids in your Ford lubricate critical parts and systems, such as your brakes, power steering and transmission. By replacing contaminated fluids and ensuring correct levels, these parts and systems can work more efficiently, thus extending the life of your vehicle.
 
Replace your timing belt
The timing belt in your vehicle plays an important role – it prevents the pistons and valves from colliding. Over time, this can cause the belt to weaken, wear and eventually break, which can cause serious damage to your engine. To avoid this costly repair, be sure to replace the timing belt according to the schedule in your Owner’s Guide.
 
Check your suspension 
Worn shocks and struts are responsible for a rougher ride, decreased vehicle control and increased stopping distances. By replacing these key parts before they are completely worn out, you not only improve the stability and ride control of your vehicle, but you also have the ability to extend the life of your car or truck.  
 
Remember: if you are too busy and don’t have the know-how to regularly check these maintenance items yourself, our Service Experts at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. can help. Simply call us to book an appointment and we’ll handle the rest. 

Fuel Saving Vehicle Maintenance in New Westminster, B.C.

Tags:
(Posted on May 2, 2017 at 12:02PM by Michelle Bogle)
ford service new westminster bcIf you have concerns about your vehicle’s fuel economy or wonder why you are having to frequent the gas station more often, your Ford car or truck might be overdue for some regular maintenance. Not only will this get your vehicle operating in tip-top shape, but you should also notice a decrease in your monthly gas costs too. 
 
Not sure where to start? Here are 10 practical tips from Be Car Care Aware to help you improve your vehicle’s fuel economy while saving you money at the pumps:
 
1. Check your tires for correct pressure 
Under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance, thus forcing your engine to work harder and burn more expensive fuel. 
 
2. Install the right tires on your vehicle
By installing the wrong type or size of tire, you increase your vehicle’s fuel consumption by changing the recommended rolling resistance of your car or truck.
 
3. Use the prescribed grade of motor oil 
Your Owner’s Guide specifies the right type of motor oil to use in your vehicle, including the recommended grade and formulation. If you don’t follow these guidelines, you will experience a decrease in your fuel economy. 
 
4. Have your engine tuned 
Regular tune-ups according to your vehicle's maintenance schedule can improve your gas mileage by up to 4 percent.
 
5. Replace your oxygen sensor 
Fresh oxygen sensors can improve fuel economy by as much as 10 to 15 percent and can save you an average of $100 per year on gas by ensuring optimal engine performance. 
 
6. Inspect your battery 
Corroded battery cables cause your alternator to work harder and burn more fuel. 
 
7. Choose the right octane
For the best performance, always choose the recommended octane of gas for your specific vehicle. If premium gas is required, don’t cheap out for anything less.
 
8. Replace your air filters 
Filters prevent contamination from harming the important systems in your vehicle. By replacing these at the recommended intervals, you can save up to 10 percent on fuel.
 
9. Check the gas cap 
A missing or cracked gas cap will allow gasoline vapours to escape from your tank.
 
10. Have your suspension and chassis inspected 
A misaligned or damaged suspension can create drag, which will increase your vehicle’s fuel consumption.

Cabin Air Filter Replacements in New Westminster, B.C.

(Posted on Apr 30, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
filter replacements in vancouver bcIf you’ve fallen victim to a vehicle with stale air, a dusty interior or a less-than-fresh odour, it might be time to replace the cabin air filter in your Ford car or truck. In most vehicles, this filter is located behind the glove box and can easily be swapped out on your own or by a Technician.
 
If you want to tackle this yourself, follow these six easy steps:
 
1. Refer to your Ford Owner’s Guide, which shows the location and type of filter used in your vehicle.
 
2. Purchase the right Motorcraft cabin air filter for your vehicle, which is available from our Parts Department.
 
3. Access the cabin air filter and pop out the old filter by pushing on the inner plastic tabs.
 
4. Following the instructions on the package, insert the new filter and discard the old one. 
 
5. Note in your Owner’s Guide the date and odometer reading of your new cabin air filter.
 
6. Repeat again in 35,000 to 50,000 kilometres to ensure that you always have clean air cycling throughout your vehicle.

Shock and Strut Replacements in New Westminster, B.C.

Tags:
(Posted on Apr 24, 2017 at 12:57PM by Michelle Bogle)
shock and strut replacements in vancouver bcThere are certain seasons that are extremely hard on your vehicle’s suspension, like the cold, rough terrain of winter and the pothole-laden roads of spring. As you get closer to the summer months, you might find your vehicle making strange noises or handling poorly on the roads – two signs that your shocks and struts might be due for replacement.
 
Here’s what can happen if you ignore these important warning signs:
 
Decreased braking ability
When your shocks or struts are due for replacement, your vehicle will bounce a lot more, especially over bumps, making it harder for the vehicle to stop. It can also cause your car or truck to nose-dive, which can increase your stopping distance due to a decrease in traction. Both scenarios compromise your safety on the roads, which is not okay.
 
Reduced control
Body roll while cornering is a symptom of damaged shocks and struts, which is characterized by a greater degree of tilt as you turn your vehicle. Not only is this unsafe, but it makes for a ride quality that’s more reminiscent of a rollercoaster. 
 
Rough ride
Speaking of poor ride quality, a bounce test can tell you if your shocks and struts need replacing. To do so, push down on the front and rear ends of your car; if it moves up and down more than once or twice, you need to get your suspension checked. 
 
Worn tires
A hallmark of worn shocks and struts are tires that wear out faster due to cupping. Cupping happens when your car bounces up and down on the roads, leaving indented scuff marks on the tires, which shortens their life span. 
 
Increased hydroplaning 
Speaking of tires, worn suspension parts can affect the way your vehicle makes contact with the road, especially when they are wet. If you find yourself hydroplaning or skidding frequently, your shocks or struts could be in need of extra TLC.
 
Don’t settle for a bumpy ride! At Key West Ford, our Ford-trained Technicians will inspect your vehicle’s suspension parts to ensure proper performance. To learn more, contact our Service Department today to book your next maintenance appointment.

Handy Car Maintenance Checklist – “LIFT BOW”

Tags:
(Posted on Apr 20, 2017 at 12:29PM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service station vancouver bcWhen it comes to owning a vehicle, a little preventive maintenance goes a long way. In fact, it can save you precious time and money by circumventing unexpected repairs. But, with the busy lives we lead, it can be hard to know (and remember) what to keep a close eye on, right?
 
Well, not anymore! All you need to remember is this helpful acronym: LIFT BOW. Here’s what each letter stands for:
  
L is for Lights
When doing a walkaround your vehicle, make sure your headlamps, running lights and brake lights are working and clean. If a light is out, replace it right away to avoid an accident or ticket.
 
I is for Interior
Get into the habit of keeping your vehicle’s interior clean and vacuuming it regularly. This will help prevent any staining from spills and will ensure that the upholstery looks and smells fresh. 
 
F is for Fluids
There are many fluids throughout your vehicle – not just oil. Be sure to check that your coolant, power-steering, transmission, windshield washer and brake fluids are at their recommended levels, as outlined in your Owner’s Guide.
 
T is for Tires
There are a few things to watch out for with your tires – mainly, correct tire pressure and signs of wear. Checking the pressure is easy – all you need is an inexpensive tire gauge and your Owner’s Guide, which lists the recommended psi for your make and model. To check for signs of wear, pay close attention to the wear bars on the tires or look for any damage on the treads or sidewalls.
 
B is for Brakes
Brakes are an important safety component on your vehicle. Be sure to have them inspected immediately if you notice a difference in pedal feel, if your brakes are making unusual noises or if you sense a change in stopping ability.
 
O is for Oil
Most Ford vehicles are equipped with an Intelligent Oil Life Monitoring (IOLM) System, which will notify you when your car or truck is due for an oil change. You can also check the dipstick on your vehicle to assess the level and quality of your oil.
 
W is for Windows
Your windows, especially your windshield, should always be free from cracks, pits and any debris that might impair your vision while driving. If you notice any damage, be sure to visit our Service Department for a repair. We can also recommend replacement wiper blades, which should be changed every six months. 
 
Remember: if you are too busy and don’t have a chance to regularly check these preventative maintenance items yourself, our Service Experts at Key West Ford in New Westminster, B.C. can help. All you need to do is call us to book an appointment and we’ll handle the rest.

6 Car Care Tips to Extend the Life of Your Ford

Tags:
(Posted on Apr 13, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
automotive service centre in vancouver bcYour vehicle works hard for you as it battles congested roads, extreme hot and cold conditions, wear and tear, and regular use. If you don’t keep up with its ongoing maintenance, your car or truck won’t be able to keep up with you when you need it most. 
 
Thankfully, there are some easy car care tips that you can follow to extend the life of your Ford. Here are six to start implementing today:
 
1. Follow your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule for regular engine oil and filter replacements. Your vehicle will run more efficiently if you keep up with these service items.
 
2. Replace your timing belt every 100,000 km or as outlined in your Owner’s Guide to avoid failure.
 
3. Rotate, balance and align your tires every 10,000 km to preserve their tread. If not, you’ll have to pay for expensive replacements more often, which can be avoided with proper care.
 
4. If you are typically a city driver in stop-and-go traffic, make time for an extended highway drive at least once a month. This will heat up your engine and burn off any built-up condensation, which can harm the oil and internal parts of your engine.
 
5. This goes without saying – by washing and waxing your vehicle on a regular basis, it will not only maintain the good looks of your car or truck, but it will also prevent rust from occurring. If you notice any paint chips or dings, have those repaired to keep your Ford looking great.
 
6. Even in the dead of winter or the high heat of summer, run your vehicle’s air conditioning and heating systems for about five minutes each month. This will keep your HVAC system well lubricated and can help prevent failure. 
 
Remember: Looking after your vehicle doesn’t just extend its life, but it can also help your resale or trade-in value too. To give your Ford the attention that it deserves, book your next maintenance appointment with our Service Department at Key West Ford. Our factory-trained Technicians have the knowledge, skills and quality parts to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.
