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 hatchbacks
Contrary to the downward trend in retail registrations for non-luxury, turbocharged small hatchbacks for many automakers, Ford is experiencing - and reveling in - the exact opposite. Reports show a 21 percent decrease in 2016 overall for other automakers, as buyers gravitate increasingly towards SUVs; however, the Blue Oval recently posted a hair over a 21 percent gain in retail new vehicle registrations through September, and has had particular success with the Fiesta STFocus ST and Focus RS. All three are its newest hot hatchback models.

Although the statistics are exciting, they also pique curiosity. How is it that Ford has not only avoided the downward trend? Even more puzzling, how has managed to increase its registrations? The answer, according to Ford Focus brand manager Jessica Bishop, lies in Ford's international reputability.

“For decades, we heard criticism from customers that Ford sold its best small cars only in Europe, yet in five short years we’ve built a reputation here for making very serious but affordable performance cars with our Focus ST and Fiesta ST one-two punch,” she said. “Buyers now know Ford is committed to affordable performance.” 

Erich Merkle, a sales analyst for Ford, called out the Focus' success in particular.

“Non-luxury, turbocharged small hatchbacks are down 21 percent year-over-year, but our turbocharged Ford Focus is up 37 percent," he revealed. "With the shift into SUVs and crossovers, our hot hatches are bucking the trend.”

Since small hatchbacks outside the Ford family aren't providing too much competition at this point, the fight for first place is now being contested between the Ford Focus ST, Fiesta 
ST and Focus RS. The latter puts up a strong front, offering 350-horsepower all-wheel drive, and its debut in the lineup puts retail registrations of Ford's hot hatchbacks up over 21 percent year over year. The Focus ST increased over five percent in the same timeframe, while registrations increased seven percent for the Fiesta ST. The data comes from Ford's analysis of IHS Markit retail registrations of new vehicles through September 2016, which is the most up-to-date information accessible.

Stay apprised of the current hatchbacks on the lot by visiting Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington, and keep an eye out for what's on tap moving into 2017.
