New lease vehicle - amazing experience!
55
Huge thanks to the team at Key West Ford! This is my second lease (first one 4 years ago) and they knocked it out of the park again. Really easy to deal with & no BS, just really straightforward and honest. Being a single female this type of purchase can easily be intimidating and/or difficult but Peter Olson and the team (Mike & Michelle) made it seamless and left me feeling confident about my purchase. Thank you!

Great place

Bought a Ford Escape Titanium and was one of the best car buying experiences I have had. At 72 years old I have had a few. Great dealership, was never under any pressure to buy or make a deal, Peter Olson was very knowledgable on the vehicles I was looking at and Wes Upton was great to deal with. It was friendly and quickly finalized. All in all a totally super place to deal with.

Allan sold me a gently used honda the other day. This guy really wants everyone to be happy and comfortable. I felt he was totally looking out for my best interest and and he went way out of his way to do so from the umbrellas (cause it was raining) to the hot coffee to warm us up.. as well as getting me a really good deal on my car with minimal haggling. He really wants you to have the car at the best deal possible and I was more than happy with his service.. when I was ready to except the deal..he said "I'll get you out of here and driving your new car in 45 mins"!! .. and sure enough I was out of there 45 minutes later I was on my way home. It was a real pleasure dealing with Allan and I hope hes around next time I wanna upgrade.

Best sales experience with Peter Olson ever!

Peter Olson is the best sales person we have ever dealt with!He gave us all the information required to make a knowing decision on our vehicle. He did not have the vehicle we were looking for at first within our price range and kilometres. He kept us in the loop while he searched and found us our 2017 Ford Escape SE AWD which we love. It took weeks to find us what we were looking for but it was worth the wait! We would not hesitate to recommend Peter Olson to our friends, family, and anyone who reads this. He is very honest and went above and beyond for us. Top Shelf!

Ford Patents Adaptive Steering Technology

Fixed steering gear ratios are the norm. At low speeds, they tend to be a compromise between maneuverability and steering quickness, which can lead to driver fatigue and frustration.

Ford Motor Company recognized and responded to these limitations, releasing it’s all new adaptive steering technology –removing these traditional performance compromises—for  the new F-Series Super Duty pickup models and Ford Edge SUV, with eight patents complete and 11 more in the works.  The first Ford vehicles to house this new upgrade were the 2016 Ford Edge Sport and the 2016 Ford Edge Titanium (as an optional add-on).

Contained in the steering wheel, the adaptive system function on an electric motor, gear unit and small computer. It can add or subtract rotations at the steering wheel based upon the speed of the vehicle and the driver’s contributions. At slower speeds, the angle of the front wheels increases with the turn of the steering column, meaning the driver doesn’t have to work as hard.

“At high speeds, the ratio is changed in such a way that vehicle response is more relaxed, more precise and smoother than without the system,” says Lodewijk Wijffels, adaptive steering technical specialist at Ford.
