Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.

My experience at Key West Ford
4.85
I will share here my experience with Key West Ford. I have spent more than 7 hours with Mr. Peter olson (salesman), he was incredibly patient with me, showed me more than 12 possibilities of vehicles (in my budget). After we pick some cars he took me to do 5 test drives with the vehicles what really helped me so much on my choice. Today I just pick up my car at Key West Ford just all clean (little issues on the vehicle were fixed just as promissed to me) and with fuel only for me to drive. I would like to thank Mr Peter Olsen and Key West Ford Team. Thank you so much. Dário Zumerle

Great service and price

Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!

Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.

Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
55
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...

Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!

The salesman was nice

I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.

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. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.

After launching its pilot program in June to hire more adults with autism, Ford Motor Company recently revealed its plans to expand the program in 2017. Ford's program, which is a collaboration with the Autism Alliance of Michigan, will add to its current network of four hires who are considered autistic; the publicized plans state that 12 to 24 additional hires are expected with the expansion.

The Dearborn-based automaker is one of more than 30 other local companies to lead the initiative. As the spectrum of autism becomes better understood, companies are becoming more receptive to onboarding employees with autism - for many participating companies, people with autism are considered underutilized, unique talent. The situation is a
win-win, since many people on the spectrum often face frustrating challenges when it comes to earning a living.  

As of now, the four adults hired as part of Ford's program have college degrees to work in its product development department, which is part of the world headquarters. They initially started with a temporary
status, but transitioned to regular employee status after the temp period. This isn't the first time Ford's put a spotlight on autism and diversity - learn more by watching the video below:


"When we started, we wanted to make sure we could do this and do it sustainably," Kirstin Queen, manager of diversity and inclusion at Ford, stated in a CrainsDetroit.com article. "The program was found to be very successful, and the supervisors have said these individuals brought a new energy that spread to other employees." Although the program originally committed to employing five workers, two part-time positions ended up being combined to create a single full-time position - all because one particular candidate was performing particularly well, and representatives of the Blue Oval wanted to acknowledge the individual's reputable work.

To ensure that Ford's existing employee base and
team of managers were properly prepared to interact with their new co-workers, Autism Alliance conducted a special training session to provide information and assets. As reported on CrainsDetroit, "The challenge of employing an adult with autism, while all are different, usually lies in the realm of social interactions. Employees with autism can lack social skills and social imagination and are often brutally honest, which can come across as rudeness," which can startle or upset employees who aren't educated about the effects of autism on one's behavior. However, the program enforces the idea that an autistic individual's setbacks need not be dealbreakers. After all, a 2014 study revealed that over half of people diagnosed with autism have average to above-average intelligence.

Already, the newly opened positions are expected to be filled in January of 2017 as Ford expands the new hires into its information technology and digital innovation departments. To learn more about the program, stop by Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington and talk to any of our representatives today.
