From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford.
I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day.
Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time.
Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.
Great service from Pete & Brian
We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.
Peter Olson was very helpful with everything took his time to explain and show all.
Management team was remarkable.
This place is a friendly and amazing place to be.
Recommend to everyone that want to have a amazing experience like myself.
Great service from the staff a Key West Ford. I was surprised to pick up vehicle with a fill tank of fuel alot of dealerships don't do this anymore.
Search over !!!
Going above and beyond to satisfy
Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for.
All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful
Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.
Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics.
We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal.
The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new.
We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

While SUVs have waxed and waned along the automotive scene, the Ford Explorer offers a rare permanency. This mid-size option debuted in 1990 and has since become one of the world’s most popular (and most enduring) vehicles.
Keeping pace with manufacturing trends is no simple task. Ford, however, has constantly adapted its Explorer to the demands of the public, creating a SUV that’s always powerful and always capable. When the first generation model appeared in April of 1990, it was met with much acclaim - with critics and drivers alike celebrating its V6 capacity, four-wheel drivetrain and push-button shifting. These features secured high sales, topping the charts with approximately 140,000 units.
Back in the 90’s I owned a forest green 1991 Ford Explorer. The 1991 was Ford’s roll out of the Explorer replacing the Bronco II (which was in my opinion a horrible vehicle). Before the Explorer I owned a full sized Bronco. The full size Bronco was an amazing work horse but mostly it shined off road. I could blast through the out back and explore logging roads of the Cascades. My young daughters and I enjoyed many an off road adventure. I loved it but it was still a truck – a noisy, bumpy and ‘roughing it’ truck at that.
The Explorer for me took the concept of off road and comfort to a whole level. It had power, comfort and looks while being a great utility vehicle for transporting the kids to school, sports and various activities in and around Seattle. It was still a four-wheel drive and I didn’t have to jump out in the typical Pacific Northwest fowl weather and switch it on – there was a switch inside the vehicle.
Back then there were many improvements made to the Explorer that made a 4X4 ride like a car on the highway but give you the confidence of being higher up. Today the Explorer is still as popular as it was when it hit the streets and back roads in 1991!
Ford wasn’t content to languish in its initial success. Instead it reinvented the Explorer - again and again. Each year it’s fused this model with new technology and dynamic drivetrains. This has inspired strong sales and multiple variants, including the XLT, the Limited, the Sport and the Platinum. Five generations deliver optimum performance.
The Explorer serves as a cornerstone of Ford, launching its SUV lineup to the top of the charts. To accomplish this it’s offered drivers several notable features, including:
The Cologne V6 Engine: the Explorer was among the first Fords to boast a 4.0 Cologne V6, connecting consumers to hydraulic roller lifters, pushrod functionality and 225 lb.-ft of torque.
Flex-Fuel Technology: the Explorer embraced flex-fuel technology, combining ethanol and gasoline for superior economy.
Terrain Management System: though not the first to offer a Terrain Management System, the Explorer none-the-less defined the feature. It combined electronic stability control with distinct drive modes, ensuring greater precision on the road.
Ford understands the SUV market. This is why it fuses the Explorer with so many crucial functions.
The decades have been kind to the Ford Explorer, securing it many awards. These include:
Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year: 1994 Automobile Magazine’s Readers’ Choice All-Star List: 1998 Consumer Guide’s Best Buy: 2000 Edmund’s Most Wanted Vehicle: 2003 AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle: 2010
North American Truck of the Year: 2011
Few vehicles have left such a lasting impression as the Explorer. This Ford powerhouse shapes the SUV market.
