I had really great experience with this dealership this is my second time purchasing from them Jag was my salesperson this go around and he was great. They really worked hard getting my approval on something that I would like and something that I can afford. I would definitely recommend going to the stealership for a seamless process and options I have nothing to complain about with this purchase or my previous purchase. Nicholas and finance was also amazing great customer service I'm really happy with the assistance I received and the overall outcome. I'll definitely be back in a year maybe two for my next vehicle upgrade. Thanks a million, Kathleen

Great experience and never felt pressured to buy.

Purchased a car from Mike Nokes at Key West Ford and the experience was exceptional. I never felt pressured and at all times felt like Mike was trying to get me the right car for my new family. He didn't BS me when it came to negotiating the price and his boss Wes was reasonable when it came to the trade in value of my car. You can also tell that Wes has the best interests of his sales staff and wants to work with them to make a deal happen that leaves both sides happy. Gurj in financing was great to deal with and worked with me to find the right extended insurance for my needs at a decent price. I left extremely happy with the car I wanted at a great price. I would happily purchase another car from Mike at Key West Ford and recommend anyone heading there to search Mike out. Thanks for the Lincoln!

After one whole days search for a used car. Me and my wife could not find a single car fits our expectations. Finally we decided and turn to Key West Ford hoping that we might be able to find one what we need as we love FORDS. As soon as we got off the car. Nikola Bebek the sales person greeted us. He gave a great service to us. The finest thing I noticed in him was that he never said no to all the requests I did while I was searching for a car. Nick gave his fullest support for me to go home with a Ford Fusion. But It was too big for my daughter to learn. Thanks to Key West Ford that I could exchange within one month. I had to Trouble Nick again. Happily excepted my request and I end up with a 2015 Ford Focus which is a great car. When I came to the finance I met another fine person Nicholas Terezakis. He took the courage to get me the best rates and monthly payments which I was fully satisfied. These two gentlemen have given me a great service through out the process. Which kept me happy without worries. Certainly they have helped me to build confidence over the dealership. GREAT WORK!

get help with all-wheel drive repairs seattle washington areaWe constantly see commercials touting all-wheel drive, but what does it mean exactly? All-wheel drive improves acceleration in inclement weather and handles well on dry streets. A Carfax article explains the ins and outs of AWD and the different types available. Read on to discover your options and where you can get car help when you need it.

All-wheel drive starts with the center differential, which is a set of gears that divide the power from the transmission to the rear and front axles. Wheel sensors work in tandem with the center differential by detecting wheel speed and traction loss.

Imagine you’re stopped at an intersection on a particularly snowy day. When you press on the gas to accelerate, you may notice that one of your wheels is spinning in place rather than moving you forward. At this point, the wheel sensors tell your car’s computer that there’s a loss of traction. Then, the computer sends more power to the wheel in question, giving it a 
better grip on the slick surface. And voila, you’re on your way!

There are three types of all-wheel drive: Symmetrical AWD, Torque-Vectoring AWD, and On-Demand AWD. Symmetrical all-wheel drive works by sending power to the rear and front axles simultaneously. If the computer notices a loss of traction, it will send more power to whichever axle needs it most. Torque vectoring AWD is different from the other systems in that it has the ability to divide power between the back wheels. It can send more power to an outside rear wheel, thus improving the handling.

Lastly, there’s on-demand all-wheel drive. This system normally keeps all of the power in the front wheels, improving handling and fuel economy. If the sensors detect that the vehicle is slipping, the power is diverted to the rear axle. On-demand AWD is often seen in crossover SUVs.
