Great deal on my Elantra GT hatchback
I got a good deal on my Elantra gt hatchback. Jag was super nice and showed me everything about the cars I liked. Got a good car on my budget. Also all the staff were super nice. I highly recommend key west ford.
Excellent Service
Went in looking for my first car, came out with an awesome deal today. Peter took the time and effort to help me out to make sure I got the car that I wanted. Michelle did a great job with the financing of the vehicle. Both of you two did an amazing job and I thank you for you help today!
Easy going, not pushy and personable
Allan was great! He knew that my wife and I were interested in purchasing a Pre owned vehicle and was instrumental in helping us find what we were looking for. He listened to our needs, instead of telling us what we wanted to hear. He was personable and friendly. We never felt pressured into purchasing something that didn’t fit our needs. I would highly recommend Allen to anyone who is looking for a great experience during a car search. His knowledge is second to none and his attitude is great!
Great Service
Bought my first car today with, Jeff Upton. He answered all my questions and helped me find the perfect SUV. Michael Nokes was also there helping Jeff out and explaining what to look for in a used car and the pros and cons that come with it. Great to deal with, very friendly and kind, Michelle and Nick helped me with financing and they were great, and patient with me. Answered all my questions and concerns with detail. Loved them, so kind and so friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with my first major purchase!
Purchase car
Jag was super help full and well knowable of the cars he did great job to explain everything and at the end help to set up Bluetooth and navigation system I am really thankful to Jag for this experience Great service and for sure will come back afin
Great sales and communication
I bought a used 2016 mustang gt just recently from Lino. He was very helpful, friendly and answered all my questions. I also spoke in great length with Michael Nokes the sales manager. He was easy to get along with and a general overall nice guy. I would definitely recommend key west ford to anyone looking for a brand new or used ford. Lino didn’t pressure me into buying that first day I arrived. You will feel comfortable dealing with him and Michael nokes.
Excellent service and follow through
We were window shopping for a new vehicle in the near future. Tom showed us exactly what we wanted and made the deal happen today. We are exceptionally happy with his service and would recommend friends and family go see him at Key West Ford!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff that made it easy to decide on a vehicle. We are happy with the experience and would definitely recommend this dealership.
Best attention to my needs & very respectful 😊
Jag and the team are very hospitable. They all made me feel as tho’ I was their guest. I was lucky that they had exactly what I needed in the lot and I was given the best deal I could have hoped for. Thank you, Jag !

2017 ford fiesta se for sale in renton washingtonDear Darby,

I just bought a 2017 Ford Fiesta, and it’s my first car. What’s a VIN number, and where can I find it?

Thanks so much,

Great question! The vehicle identification number (VIN) is a specific code for your car made up of 17 letters and numbers. It is required for many different things including registration and buying/selling. It can be located on the title or on various documents such as maintenance paperwork.

You can also look on the body of your 2017 Ford Fiesta to find it. It can typically be seen on the bottom left corner of the dashboard or along the driver’s side door frame. If you still can’t see it, try peeking under the hood. 

The VIN keeps a record of your automobile’s history including where it was manufactured, the model year, the type of engine, and more. You can also use it to activate all of the features for the FordPass mobile platform. This enables you to connect with on-the-go services such as navigation and roadside assistance.

If you need more information about your used Fiesta, get in touch with our dealership in Renton, Washington. We are always here to help!
2017 ford edge titanium for sale in renton washington
Dear Darby,

I’m an artist looking for a compact SUV that isn’t too small. How much room does the 2017 Ford Edge have in the back?

Thank you,

When it comes to the 2017 Ford Edge, don’t let the word compact fool you. This five-seater has ample space for canvases, wood plaques, display tables, and more. Behind the second row is a cargo area of 39.2 cubic feet. This can easily be expanded up to 73.4 cubes by folding down the rear seats.

No matter what kind of masterpieces you create, there is plenty of room in the back to load up your treasures. The 2017 Edge is also great for traveling to different venues, festivals, and events to showcase and sell your work. For outdoor gatherings, you can strap the tent to the roof and store everything else inside.

The highly capable 2.0-Liter Inline 4 engine generates 245 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission, it has a fuel economy set at 23 mpg combined (20 city/28 highway).

new 2018 ford fusion se for sale in renton washington
Dear Darby,

I just bought the 2018 Ford Fusion. How far will one tank of gas get me?


Results may differ slightly depending on a variety of variables, but the new 2018 Ford Fusion is a highly fuel-efficient sedan. Able to adapt in almost any condition, it gets an impressive 28 mpg combined (23 city/34 highway). The gas tank holds approximately 16.5 gallons, which means that you can drive roughly 561 miles before needing to refill at the pump.

You could venture down into Portland, Oregon or even cross the border into Northern California. Head to the beach or make your way to the Klamath National Forest without spending an extra penny. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine doesn’t need much to produce 175 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

If you are planning to take a long road trip this summer, be sure to utilize the cruise control option. This enables you to relax during the ride. Another key feature is the height-adjustable driver’s seat that provides the ultimate comfort for the journey south.

new 2018 ford escape s for sale in renton washington
Dear Darby,

My tire pressure light came on in my 2018 Ford Escape. How do I know which ones need air and how much I should put in?


Keeping a uniform tire pressure across all four wheels is essential for optimized performance in your vehicle. Under-inflation can add excessive strain to your axles, which can hurt the longevity of the SUV. Too much air puts you at a higher risk of blowing out on the highway, which can be potentially deadly.

For the 2018 Escape, the best level to keep your pressure at is 36 pounds per square inch (psi). This compact crossover is equipped with a monitoring system that will alert you when changes occur. You can use a gauge device to check each individual tire to see which one is the culprit. They may all need adjustments if there have been significant fluctuations in temperature or if the car has been stationary for a few weeks.

In any case, it is a simple fix that should not be brushed under the rug. No one wants to be stranded on the highway waiting for a tow truck!

2015 ford focus se for sale in renton washington
Dear Darby,

The check engine light came on in my 2015 Ford Focus. What does that mean?


This is a common question among Seattle drivers. The first thing to do is don’t panic. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap. There are many possibilities of what could cause this service light to come on. You should take the vehicle to a mechanic to have it properly looked at.

The underlying issue should not be ignored no matter what it is. If you haven’t had your oil changed in a while, that could be the culprit. Other common problems are:

  • The oxygen sensor could be bad. Replacing it is necessary for keeping your fuel economy up. 
  • The catalytic converter transforms carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. A bad one can lead to a failed emissions test and reduced performance.
  • Loose spark plug or wires can also cause a ruckus within the inner-working of your car.
  • Leaking fluid can accelerate wear and tear on certain parts of the engine.

All of these things should be addressed by a professional. If you would like to learn more about automobile maintenance for your used Focus, get in touch with our dealership in Renton, Washington. 
new 2018 ford expedition xlt for sale in kirkland washingtonDear Darby,

I have a new 2018 Ford Expedition, and I’m wanting to take my family camping. How much weight can I pull?


You certainly picked the right vehicle for outdoor activities! The 2018 Expedition can haul approximately 9,000 pounds with the Class IV trailer hitch. If you are going fishing, you can bring your own boat. Stability and traction control will prevent the added load from swaying, and the 18-wheels with all-terrain tires will be capable of handling the added weight. There is even a rearview camera that can be of great assistance when backing into tight spaces.

Under the hood is a robust 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 375 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with 4WD, this sturdy-built SUV can manage going over rough territory with ease. Behind the third row of seating is 36 cubic feet of cargo space for all of your family’s luggage and recreational gear. If you have oddly shaped items that won’t fit inside, you can securely strap them to the top using the installed roof rails.

If you have more questions, simply contact our dealership in Renton, Washington. We are here to help!
