It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences.

Pretty Good So Far
I purchased a 2017 Taurus SHO on Oct 20. Whole transaction from test drive to driving off the lot with my new car, was relatively painless. Only issue was a missing owners manual, which they said they would find and mail to me. A few days later, I received a call from Michael Nokes (an excellent sales mgr), stating that they could not find it and ordered a new one for me. Awesome. A month later, I finally had enough of the waiting and called them again wondering why I hadn't received it. "Oh... it just came in". Riiiiight... LOL. Regardless, I am happy. The only other issue I have is that, I was told my car came with Ford Pass. It does not. The Fusion Sport I was also interested in, did. So a little (a lot) disappointed about that, but I think the salesman was new and didn't know all the features that the different models have. The Taurus (even my SHO), does NOT come with Ford Pass. Sigh.
My only other complaint is with the financing. I read on their website of rates at 4 or so percent. I was given a rate of almost 7 %. As a federal employee with 30 years service in law enforcement and nearly no mortgage, and NO other debt, I expected better. A call and email to Michelle inquiring about this, garnered no response, so I took it upon myself to call Coast Capital Savings and today signed a contract for 4.25% .......much better!
Car has so far performed excellent. As for service, too soon to tell. I have not reached the mileage required for an oil change etc.
Overall, I am happy with Key West and would recommend them to others.

I want to surprise my girlfriend with her very own 2018 Ford Mustang. She loves to be the center of attention and should have a vehicle that helps her do that. Can you tell me what colors are available?
When it comes to American muscle cars, no one can beat the Ford Mustang. This athletic coupe is the perfect fusion of beauty and aggressive styling. It can fit into the aesthetic of anyone.
Choosing from one of the 12 paint options might be a little difficult. They are all so attractive! Shadow Black and Oxford White are two classics that never age. If you want a metallic shade, you can select Magnetic, Lead Foot Grey (standard on Shelby models), or Ingot Silver. These glisten in the sun.
For a truly eye-catching look, you can opt for one of the three reds: Race, Ruby, and Royal Crimson (only available on Ecoboost and GT trims). Two blue hues are also available in Kona (darker) and Lightening (bright). If you really want to stand out in a sea of transports, Orange Fury or Triple Yellow might be the way to go.

My father bought me my first Ford truck when I was 18 years old. It’s been my greatest asset. Now I want to repay him by gifting him the 2019 F-150 for Christmas. Can you tell me about the paint options?
The coolest aspect of the 2019 Ford F-150 is that it’s much more customizable than its competitors. This chrome-laden beauty is available in 13 different colors to suit your personality.
For a classic style, you can choose from two shades of White: Platinum and Oxford. There is also Agate Black, which ages well. Metallic hues like Magnetic, Silver Spruce, Ingot, Stone Grey, and Abyss give the exterior a sleek look.
If you are searching for something more exciting, you may select one of the three reds: Race, Magma, and Ruby. These fiery varnishes give off a strong vibe and command attention on the roads. You can even achieve a calming appearance with one of the two blues: Velocity and Jeans. Whichever you decide, we are sure that your father will love it!

I’m not good with technology, and this new 2018 Ford Focus is like a spaceship! Can you explain how to use the Intelligent Access System with push-button start? I can’t seem to figure it.
Controlling the locking mechanism on your 2018 Ford Focus is actually very simple with the installment of the Intelligent Access system. Using this function with push-button start enables you to operate your vehicle without having to locate a key. All you need is to keep the key-fob in your pocket or purse. As long as it's within 3-feet of the car, it will work fine.
To open the doors, touch the sensor on the inside of the exterior handle for half of a second. Then pull, and you’re inside!
To start the Focus, press and hold the brake pedal while you select the “Engine Start” button. To turn the transport off, put it in "Park" and choose “Engine Stop”. See how easy that is?
If you have other questions about the advanced services available on the new Focus, contact our dealership in Renton, WA today! Our Ford experts are here to help.

I’m looking to purchase an SUV, but I don’t want just any ordinary one. I’m an artist, and I travel a lot to display my work. I need something that gives off a creative vibe. Does the 2019 Ford Edge do that?
Thanks a lot,
As far as mid-size crossovers go, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better one than the new 2019 Ford Edge. This five-seater grants 39.2 cubic feet of cargo room behind the back row. This area can be expanded up to 73.4 cubes, which is ample space for transporting your creations.
You will also be happy to hear that this model is available in 10 different paint colors. None of them are ordinary! You can opt for a more traditional shade like Agate Black, White Platinum, Ingot Silver, Magnetic, or Stone Grey. These are all pearlized and glisten in the sun.
There are also two blue hues to choose from for a more relaxing look. If you want something vivacious, Ruby Red and Burgundy Velvet might be best. Lastly, Ford has added one more tone that most other companies don’t offer. Baltic Sea Green will have heads turning everywhere you go!

I recently started a non-profit environmental group to help clean up Seattle. I think it’s important to invest in the right mode of transportation to organize our volunteers and get them to where they need to be. Can you tell me about the new 2019 Ford Transit Connect?
Keeping our city clean is an admirable mission. Getting everyone together and in the right place is the hard part. That’s why the 2019 Ford Transit Connect is perfect for the task. Depending on the configuration, it can carry five to seven passengers.
There are two engine options to choose from: the 1.5-liter EcoBlue® diesel or the 2.0-L Inline-4. Both are designed to be more compact and fuel efficient. Equipped with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Transit Connect gets 23 mpg combined (19 city/27 highway).
This year’s model boasts a 6.5 touchscreen that displays the vehicle’s infotainment system. It also includes a 4G LTE WiFi modem that allows you to navigate, download, and stream at high-speeds no matter where you are.

I’m supposed to babysit my sister’s kids while she and her husband go on a much-needed vacation. I’ll be staying in their home and driving their new 2018 Ford Explorer. Can you tell me about the safety restraints I should use?
Children are the most precious cargo that our cars will ever carry. That’s why Ford has gone to great lengths to create a safe environment inside each and every vehicle. The 2018 Explorer features a restraint system that was designed specifically for the little ones.
Compatible with safety seats, lower anchors and tethers are used to keep it in place securely. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that passengers under the age of 2 should be kept in a rear-facing position. This is the best way to protect them in the event of an accident.
Ages 4 to 12 with heights under 4’9” should use a booster with a lap belt resting across the low hips. The shoulder strap should sit centered across the chest.

I have been hearing great things about the new 2018 Ford Edge and its safety features. I’m particularly interested in the lane keeping system. Can you tell me more about how it works?
Thanks so much,
The little birds are right! The 2018 Ford Edge is loaded with nifty options that are meant to keep you safe on the roads. Driving has never been so easy.
The lane keeping system monitors markings in the street and detects unintentional drifting. Using a camera mounted behind the windshield’s rearview mirror, this operation will alert you if you are beginning to go off to the side. If no action is taken to correct this, it will assume control over the steering and guide your vehicle back to the center.
This function switches on at speeds above 40 mph. It will not work properly if there is damage to the window or the lens is being blocked. You may customize the sensitivity or turn it off completely by adjusting the Mode Setting on the infotainment menu under General Information.

I have been thinking about purchasing the 2018 Ford Escape SEL. It’s safety features are very appealing. Can you tell me more about how the emergency braking works?
The new 2018 Ford Escape is loaded with all kinds of new options to help keep you safe on the road. One of these cool functions is Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. This system can detect potential accidents with other vehicles or pedestrians in the street. It is active between 3 and 50 mph. It even monitors the road at night when the car’s lights are on.
If you are rapidly approaching an obstacle, you will be alerted to the danger. An audible chime will sound and a warning notification will appear on the information display. If no action is taken to slow down, the Escape will pre-charge or apply the brakes itself without input from you.
You can adjust the sensitivity of this operation to high, normal, or low. It can also be disabled at any time.

I just got off the phone with my dad. He told me that I probably need to add power steering fluid to my 2014 Ford Escape. Can you explain how to do this? I’d rather not go to a mechanic.
Thanks so much,
When living in a big city like Seattle, power steering can be a life-saver. It helps to make parallel parking and other low-speed maneuvers easier. Some newer models have an electronic system and do not require liquid. However, the 2014 Ford Escape may be ready for more fluid by this point. Follow these simple steps:
Start the vehicle and let it run until the temperature gauge reaches the normal range.
With the engine idling, turn the steering column to full lock both ways multiple times. Then, turn off the car and pop the hood.
Locate the reservoir. It is typically on or near the motor and is often white or yellow with a black cap. If the level is low, it’s time to add fluid.
You can find the correct product for your Escape by looking inside the Owner’s Manual.
Fill to the MAX line and secure the lid in place.

There is nothing more annoying than having to get gas when it's freezing. I’m looking for a vehicle that has a better fuel economy so that I don’t have to fill up as often. How far does the 2019 Ford Fusion go on one tank?
You are definitely right about that! Having to stop at a gas station during the bitter winter months is quite tedious. It’s cold, windy, and the prices are always up due to the holidays. However, with the new 2019 Ford Fusion, you won’t have to worry as much.
As the company’s flagship sedan, the engineers at Ford have had plenty of time to perfect this five-seater. This year’s model is better than ever before! There are four engine options to choose from.
2.5L Duratec Inline 4: 175 HP & 175 lb-ft
1.5L EcoBoost Inline 4: 181 HP & 185 lb-ft
2.0L EcoBoost Inline 4: 240 HP & 270 lb-ft
2.7L EcoBoost V6: 325 HP & 380 lb-ft
On average, the 2019 Fusion gets 28 mpg combined (23 city/34 highway) and has a fuel tank capacity of 18 gallons. That will give you approximately 612 miles of driving time before needing to fill up again.
