Fantastic dealer!

From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford. I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day. Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time. Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.

We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.

Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for. All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful

Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.

Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics. We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal. The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new. We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

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.
