Jag helped us find just the right previously owned vehicle, texted me right away when new stock came in that fit our requirements. The rest of the team was very respectful and courteous in completing the purchase.
Went there to sit in a few vehicles that i had my eye on. Later that week went back to drive a car, sat down and got it priced out. Went for coffee sent them an offer and they delivered an excellent vehicle for an excellent price! Jeff was nothing but exceptional for me, helpful from start to finish. Michael is a straight shooter so you know what to expect. Can only recommend going to these guys.
Amazing Service in all departments
I Had the pleasure of buying a used Ford Focus ST from Key West Ford about a month ago after having a bad experience at another dealership. We went to look at the car, Ian came out and greeted us and then left us alone unless we had questions, he wasn't pushy or aggressive which was a nice change. I decided to take the car to my shop to do my own mechanical inspection, car checked out except for a small oil leak, but I decided to pull the trigger since it would be repaired under warranty. This was my first time financing a car but Ian, Gurj and Michael Nokes explained everything in great detail and didn't rush anything. Brought the car home and waited a few days to book it in to get the oil leak repaired. I phoned the Key West service department and was helped by Tony and Sue and made the appointment. Two days later I went to pick up the car and being a mechanic, decided to bring the car back to my shop to check out the repair which was done very well. A week later I phoned the parts department to ask about some accessories and was happy to see that the amazing customer service covers the entire dealership. Michael even phoned me a few days after to ask me how I liked the car, he also answered every question I had after buying the car promptly and thoroughly. This is an amazing dealership with amazing customer service, I would go to Key West Ford even if I wasn't buying a Ford. Thank you Ian, Gurj, Michael, Sue, Tony and everyone else at Key West Ford for taking the stress out of buying a car.
Bought a used vehicle quick and easy!
We walked into dealership and found Jag as we had dealt with him before. We had no intentions of buying a vehicle that day but left very happy with our new Elantra!

The entire team were entirely supportive and straightforward: management Michael;financing Gurj and Michelle; and customer service,Meghan kept all their promises, and stood by until I drove off .the lot. in great happiness and relief for a first time used car buyer
Shopped & bought my car after test driving 3 cars
Thank you Key West Ford 👍
Quick - efficient and trustworthy dealership looking forward to sharing my experience and will recommend them anyone who may need a new or used car.
Jag understood what kind of vehicle I wanted and found a perfect match. I got the SUV I wanted at a better price than I expected. Great service!
For a while, I was interested in upgrading my car with a newer one. I spent a lot of time on internet searching for the right car and the right price and I picked 2015 Ford Fiesta Titanium at Key West Ford.
On their website I found all details, pictures and specs so I made a call. I talked to Jag in Sales and arranged a test drive. From that moment everything was going smoothly. Kal Bhatti, Sales Manager, did a great job to appraise my car and was very pleasant and pretty straight forward about the price of the car. Nick and Gurj in Business Office took their time to get me the best interest rate possible and monthly payments affordable.It was all done in no time and without any pressure and I felt so comfortable dealing with all of them.
I found a couple of minor things to be done on the car and Jag took care of it and it was ready for delivery on next day. The car was clean inside and out, I had a feeling that I bought a brand new car.
I shared my experience with many friends and relatives and recommended the Key West Ford as a place to buy a car.
Grat job guys!!!
Good and quick
I have liked the staff, they know where they are going, it is easy too to contact them and now I have a great car.

If you want your vehicle to stay in tip-top shape, regular maintenance is imperative. But it can be hard to keep track of which parts need servicing. When you get a multi-point inspection, you can be confident that every component has been accounted for. Read on to see what one article says that your local mechanic should look at during this in-depth examination.
Under the Hood
This area houses all of your car’s vital organs, so it needs extra attention. The inspection checks fluid levels, drive belts, hoses, and the engine air filter. A battery test is also performed.
Exterior and Interior
There are many small, but vital, parts of a vehicle which often get overlooked. Things like cabin air filters, turn signals, and windshield wipers will be inspected. Honking is occasionally necessary, so your horn is also tested.
Under the Vehicle
They say the underbelly is where most beasts are vulnerable, and that includes your car. This part of the inspection looks at fuel lines, shock absorbers, and steering components. The mechanic also checks for potentially hazardous leaks.
Tires and Brakes
Your vehicle isn’t going anywhere without its four wheels. This portion of the exam checks your tires’ pressure and tread depth. Since stopping is just as important as moving, the mechanic will also take a thorough look at your rear brake pads, calipers, and rotors.

Are you ready to upgrade to a new car, but not sure how to prepare your previous one for trade in? An article by CBS News offers some great tips on what you can do to boost your vehicle’s value, before exchanging it for a chunk of change at a local dealership.
Car Maintenance - While you don’t need to spend a fortune on upgrading everything in your old car, it is advisable to make sure all of your routine maintenance, like tire rotation, an oil change, and battery check, are all up to date. Simple repairs like this can significantly increase the value of your vehicle.
Body Work - All of those little dings, dents, and scratches on your car that you learned to live with, will be noticeable to prospective buyers. Thankfully, these small imperfections can be quickly and affordably removed by a nearby mechanic.
Car Detailing - Who said that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? The appearance of your vehicle’s exterior and cabin will be the first thing people see before they even put the key in the ignition. Paying a professional to give your car a thorough cleaning could increase its trade in value by several hundred dollars.

Getting your vehicle's oil changed is essential maintenance that is often forgotten. According to an article by Cars.com, the majority of automakers recommend having this service done every 7,500 miles. Manufacturers like Ford, Toyota, and Volkswagen suggest 10,000 mi, while BMW ups that figure to 15,000.
If your typical day involves stop and go driving, trailer towing, or idling in traffic, you may need to get your oil changed more often than others. Does your car endure sweltering summers or cold winters? Extreme weather temperatures also increase the frequency of necessary mechanic visits.
Do you drive a Ford? Many of the Blue Oval’s vehicles are equipped with oil life monitors, which will inform you when it’s time to swap out the old for the new. The system bases the urgency on engine temperature, speed, cold starts, climate conditions, and more. If your car doesn’t have this feature, you can always just check the dipstick.
Is your vehicle ready for its next oil change? Come to Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington and we’ll have you sorted out in no time. Make an appointment online or give us a call at 888-809-5272.

Checking the tread of your tires is a key indicator of whether or not they need to be replaced. You should be looking closely at your wheels once every month or before a long road trip. One article explains a simple method which can be done at home using just a coin.
The penny test allows you to examine your tire’s treadwear. All you need for this low-cost inspection is a one-cent piece. Follow the three easy steps below to see if you need to visit your local mechanic.
1. Hold the penny between your thumb and forefinger so that you can see the top half of Abraham Lincoln’s portrait.
2. Find a low point in your tire’s tread and place Abe’s head between the grooves.
3. If part of the head is obscured between his crown and chin, your tires have a safe and legal amount of tread. If Lincoln’s portrait is completely visible, your car’s grip is dangerously reduced.
How did your tires fair in the test? If any of them were below the limit or you’re still not sure, come to the service department at Sound Ford, in Seattle Washington. We’ll inspect and replace your wheels, if necessary. Make an appointment online or call us at 888-809-5272.

The only thing more frustrating than experiencing an unexpected car breakdown is finding out that it could have been easily prevented through routine maintenance. As we all tend to postpone our annual doctor’s appointments, we also tend to delay taking our vehicles in for a regular check-up.
If you’re still skeptical (and budget conscious), think of it this way. Routine inspections for your car will ultimately save you a mountain of money from would-be accidents caused by faulty parts. It’s also important to remember that your vehicle is made up of a lot more than four wheels and a coat of paint. There’s a lot more to be done than checking the dip stick.
One article lists some important parts which should be monitored to keep your vehicle running smoothly.
1. Replace car battery every 3-5 years
2. Replace worn out wiper blades and refill washer fluid
3. Regularly check belts and hoses for leaks or damage
4. Check and refill coolant fluid

Getting your car inspected on a regular basis can save you a fortune on unexpected breakdowns and expensive repairs in the future. Keeping your vehicle maintained helps increase its lifespan and resale value.
Of course, keeping an eye on your car also means improved safety for you and other drivers. One recent article listed the most important parts to have regularly serviced.
Check Car Tires - The full weight of your vehicle rests on your four tires. Without them, you wouldn’t be going anywhere. Having well-serviced wheels results in increased safety, fuel-efficiency, and driving experience. It’s important to have them regularly checked and rotated.
Car Oil and Filter Change - Having a recorded schedule of your car’s filter and oil changes is essential. Neglecting to do this could eventually lead to a full engine breakdown. If you can’t remember the last time you had them checked, head to your local mechanic.
Car Brake Check - Stopping is just as important as going when it comes to cars. That’s why you should have your brakes inspected at least once a year to check the operating hardware and hydraulic system. The shoes, rotors, pads, and drum all need to be in good working order to help you avoid an accident.

The steering system on your vehicle is essential. Unfortunately, there’s a lot that can go wrong with its indispensable components. One recent article outlines some of the warning signs your car will give you when it needs to be checked out.
1. Difficult to Turn Steering Wheel - This problem may be due to a faulty power steering pump, a leaking rack, or low fluid levels.
2. Bouncing Steering Wheel at Highway Speeds - This may also occur during braking. Potential causes include misaligned wheels, uneven tire wear, or brake rotor problems.
3. Steering Wheel Makes Loud Sound - When turning the wheel, you may notice a screaming or whistling sound. This typically indicates problems with the steering pump.
4. Car Pulls to One Side - If the vehicle veers to the right or left when you have the steering wheel pointed due north, it could mean that some suspension components need to be replaced.
5. Steering Slips When Turning - This is typically caused by a loose steering pump belt or low fluid, both of which need to be remedied ASAP.

Has your vehicle been misbehaving lately? If so, it could be because the battery is a little worse for the wear. Check out the list below as recommended by Firestone, to learn which signs your car will give you when this critical part needs to be checked.
1. Old Battery - Your problem could be as simple as an outdated battery. If you’ve had the same one for more than three years, make sure it’s checked annually.
2. Bloating or Swelling Battery Case - This is an obvious visual indicator that there’s a problem. If you see this, head to your local mechanic.
3. Leaking Battery - Gunk in this area can cause corrosion where the positive and negative cables are connected, which may result in your car not starting.
4. Illuminated “Check Engine” Light - This telltale sign can mean a lot of things, including a problematic battery. Regardless, it’s best to have a professional get to the root of the problem.
5. Low Battery Fluid - This can easily be checked through the transparent casing on your battery. You should have your car inspected whenever the fluid level gets below the lead plates.

If you want your vehicle to stay in top working order, wheel alignment is essential. Keeping all four tires pointing in the same direction helps them last longer. According to one article, it also means a smoother ride for you and your passengers.
It’s important to have your car’s alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so, but there are a few things that can go wrong in the meantime. Poorly maintained roads and potholes take a serious toll on your vehicle. Even running into a curb can have adverse effects. While it might not seem like a catastrophic event in the moment, these small bumps can increase uneven tire wear.
Your car will give you a few signals if the wheels are misaligned. For example, you maynoticed that your vehicle is drifting to the left or right while in motion. Another sign is if your steering wheel is pointed off to one side or the other while driving straight. Also, keep an eye out for squealing or rapid tire wear.
Is your vehicle displaying any of these symptoms? Get your wheels aligned today at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington. You can schedule an appointment online or give us a call at 888-809-5272.

Many drivers like to believe that their Four Wheel Drive vehicle is indestructible. And indeed, cars with 4WD are typically ready for action across perilous terrain. But according to one article, a lot can go wrong with this transmission system thanks to its many parts.
While SUVs and crossovers with Four Wheel Drive are intended for rugged use, many of the surfaces you encounter on your adventures can be harmful. If you take your vehicle off-roading, rocks and other debris can leave dents in the chassis cross-members. Look out for rust, if your frame is made from steel. This may also appear on the edges of tailgates and doors, which is the perfect place for muck to collect and block drainage holes.
If your 4WD car drives over muddy or wet surfaces often, make sure you’re doing a regular check on all the necessary oil levels. If the fluid appears milky-brown, you may be dealing with serious water contamination. Also, keep an eye out for leaking, which may be due to damaged shock absorbers.
Is your Four Wheel Drive system displaying any of these telltale signs? Bring your vehicle to Sound Ford and we’ll take a look. You can schedule an appointment online now or give us a call at 888-809-5272.
