We are very happy with the service and support we have received from Robert. We had a lot of questions and needed some extra support with our new Mustang, and Robert was patient, knowledgeable, and efficient, doing whatever it took to make up happy. The whole team at Key West, including Nicholas Terezakis who handled our warranty purchases, have been great to deal with.
We were in good hands. Thanks everyone!

Above & Beyond
This fellow is one of a kind. In all my life I’ve never had a good experience at a car dealership until I went to Key West Ford. What an amazing group of people. My focus titanium(2017) is the second purchase that I’ve made off Michael both experiences were something to write home about.
Whether you’re in the market for a Ford or any other kind of vehicle please do yourself a favour and check out the great people at Key West Ford.
Helped me find the car I want
This is my first car purchase. When I came to here, I didn't have a clear idea on what car I shall buy. Allan showed me around on several probable ways to buy my first car. The next day, he also found another car that suit my current need.
As I am new to Canada, there are a lot of differences on law, rules and regulations from the country I was in. Allan provided useful information on all of them and helped me get to a purchase solution that can fit into my short term and long term plan.
Now I have used the car for some time and everything seems good :)

Great pricing, very helpful. I'm from out of town and was on a tight schedule. Jag and the rest of the folks at key west were sensitive to my time constraints and had my truck ready for delivery with no hiccups.
We had a small car budget in mind and after talking it over and trying various model we settled for something newer than expected without breaking the bank.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to anyone looking for a used or new car to start at key West Ford.
Great experience buying my 1st Ford
I knew I wanted an Escape and had been shopping online for a few months. I found the vehicle I wanted and made an appointment for a test drive. It happened to be a Key West Ford. I made the appointment online and Jag reached out to me very quickly to set it up.
Jag was very friendly and talkative but certainly not pushy or how you've been trained to think of a used car salesperson. He answered my questions and was generally a nice guy to chat with.
I mentioned very early on what I was looking for but that I wasn't going to making a purchase that day. Even though he knew I wasn't buying he still wanted to make sure I knew everything I could about the vehicle I'd driven as well as anything else I might be looking into a vehicle for. I took his card when I left and made darn sure to get in touch with him once I'd made my decision.
I got a great deal from Jag and Key West Ford and would recommend you going to talk to him if you're on the fence about a new Ford.

This week, Nissan North America reached a monumental milestone – the company celebrated the production of 4 million vehicles at its Canton assembly plant in Mississippi. The automaker also announced that they have added a second shift at the facility, which will support increased demand for NV Commercial Vans, while also ensuring 250 hourly jobs.
"Adding a second shift for NV Van production underscores our employees' hard work and dedication to building world-class, quality vehicles for our customers," said Steve Marsh, VP of Manufacturing at the Nissan Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant.
The facility is also set to celebrate 15 years of vehicle manufacturing in Mississippi, which is another great milestone. Nissan has grown the plant from a regional manufacturing facility to a global one, investing $3.4 billion since its opening in 2003. The company employs 6,400 at the Canton plant, with more than 1,500 jobs added since 2013. With an annual capacity of 450,000 vehicles, the facility is home to the Nissan Altima, Murano, Titan and Titan XD, Frontier, NV Cargo Van and NV Passenger Van.
For our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, we are thrilled to hear that production of the NV Commercial Van will be accelerated since it is in high demand within our area for small business owners. To learn more about NV Vans, their versatility and payload capacity, contact us to schedule your test drive.
Ever wonder what a car wash the size of a popcorn machine can manage to accomplish? Well, now’s your chance to get that unlikely question answered. Nissan’s Technical Center North America, located in Michigan, has recently been making great use of this tiny contraption to test exterior paint samples.
This is no joke. The miniature car wash enables Nissan to see how new paints for the 370Z and similar vehicles stand up to the elements. Engineers are able to make use of tiny brushes that spin at 180 revolutions per minute (RPM) to throw dirt and water jets at diminutive test samples to replicate the abrasiveness of real-world conditions.
Just how tiny are the miniature cars themselves? In the video above, you’re looking at a 370Z that is at a 1:16 scale. However, note that this is for fun, illustrative purposes only. In actual testing, the paint is instead applied to small rectangular plates that are then put through the wash. Repeated assessments help Nissan to determine which finishes are the most durable.
If you're in the market for a 370Z, there is an array of incredible exterior paint finishes to choose from. These include Brilliant Silver, Chicane Yellow, Gun Metallic, Deep Blue Pearl, Passion Red, Magnetic Black, Pearl White, and Solid Red.
This week, Nissan fully removed the shroud from its upcoming VC-Turbo engine, the world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio motor. Although the power plant is set to first appear on the INFINITI QX50, the Japanese automaker aims to bring the sophisticated technology to other lines, perhaps including the Pathfinder, Murano, and more.
The VC-Turbo is unique from conventional machines such as the Rogue in that it blends the efficiency of diesel engines with the performance of turbocharged gasoline motors. This is achieved through an advanced multi-link operation that alters the compression ratio seamlessly, lowering and raising piston reach constantly.
Nissan’s new engine flies in the face of conventional wisdom that only diesels and hybrids can produce both efficiency and high torque. The VC-Turbo provides 268 HP @ 5,600 RPM and 280-lb.-ft. @ 4,400 rpm. Gas mileage is fantastic, too—in the QX50, the motor is set to offer a combined MPG of 27, which marks a 35-percent improvement over the outgoing setup on the same vehicle. It seems clear that it's set to shake up the automotive world.

If you regularly travel with kids or other passengers, the doors on your vehicle get a real work-out. Sometimes they are shut gently, but oftentimes they are slammed or closed with fervor as you rush out of your car to make it to a meeting or get inside the grocery store before they close for the night.
The doors on your vehicle take a lot of abuse, opening and closing 45,000 times over the course of a decade. That’s a lot of slamming!
And the engineers at Nissan? They understand this reality, which is why they enlisted help from an automated test device – a 1.5-ton durability robot, whose sole job is to test car door reliability at the Nissan Technical Center North America (NTCNA) in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
The robot is named Rosie, but also goes by the nickname Mrs. Doorboto. In three days, she opens and closes a door as much as a typical customer does over the course of a decade, working around the clock with no breaks. And while Rosie works hard and for long hours, her robo-job is highly appreciated because it would be physically impossible (and mentally taxing) for a human tester to assess the durability of the door hinges, latch mechanisms, weatherstripping and window glass frames over a replicated ten-year period.
It’s certainly a tough job, but an important one, as it relates back to Nissan’s promise of quality, durability, and innovation. And to that, we say, "Domo arigato, Mrs. Doorboto."
