Horrible and rude managers
Recently had some service work done on my 2016 Ford Taurus (wheel bearing + oil change) No complaints for the service work as it was done quickly but very bad experience regarding a damaged tire caused by the dealer which they denied to take responsibility for. (Inside of the tire sliced caused by hoist floor arm) I spoke with Sue and Tony both who were very rude to me regarding this concern. Exact words from Tony himself ***(we don't take responsibility for any tire issues). I told him I will see you in person with my dad and speak with you about this issue and his response (well you can come down if you like with your dad, uncle or whoever but I don't want to see you,) completely unacceptable responses especially being managers. I was not notified of the tire damage and they did not phone me to ask if i wanted the tire replaced especially being on the sidewall which is a major safety hazard only notes in the inspection report stating small cut in left front tire. I told Tony i shouldve been notified of the damaged tire and asked what if the tire blew on the highway causing a major accident? and he just brushed it off like it wasn't a big deal and laughed it off. My vehicle had a previous accident but is still under ford factory warranty because of the previous accident Tony and Sue both threatned me if I proceed any further regarding this tire issue they will deny my warranty claim because of my vehicle being in an accident. And i will have to pay the whole amount. Currently made a claim with Ford Canada regarding this matter and hope to get this resolved.
Happy Ford Owner
Key West is a Reputable Dealership
I have been dealing with Key West for quite a few years for both purchasing and servicing of my FORD cars. I have always found them to be sincere, helpful and easy to deal with for my purchases and listen to what you are asking for. As far as servicing, they are honest and go the extra to make sure you are happy.
Key West Ford
We went to Key West because they had an excellent selection of pre-owned Ford Flex's in stock. We were coming in from out of town to make the purchase, so arranging to have the vehicle available for test drives, getting some service work done prior to taking possession, and then getting the vehicle to us in Kelowna required some coordination. Overall, there were a lot of moving parts to this deal, but Colton the service rep handled everything smoothly and got us into our new car. We're very happy with our new car and with all aspects of our experience at Key West.
I recently needed a new vehicle and had a wonderful experience last time I bought new vehicle at key west ford so once again I go and visit the wonderful people at key west , and sure enough they go above and beyond to help me into another vehicle. I recommend visit key west ford if looking for a vehicle , I’m a customer for life won’t go anywhere else.
Friendly knowledgeable staff. They truly know how to treat people. Robert made me feel welcome and I will recommend Key West to my family and friends
My search for a family SUV
Having worked in the service industry myself for over 15 years I appreciate good customer service when I see it.
My experience with the team at Key West Ford was exceptional.
From Yashar in the service department to Rob Vanoverschot and Mike Nokes in the sales office the experience was always friendly, professional and most importantly one where I felt my family's needs were of the highest priority.
We test drove many SUV's of different makes and models and our final decision was unanimous. The Ford Explorer Sport ticked all the boxes for us and more with the quality of the drive, tech package, moon roof and mid console and captain's seats for the kids. A gorgeous vehicle and one we can't wait to drive and take on many long family road trips!
Thank you Key West Ford, you guys are awesome!
Jag Dhillon was very willing to work out a deal with us and made us feel comfortable with our decisions. Definitely recommend Jag and Key West Ford.
Thank you for your help
We just purchased a car from Peter Olson and it was great shopping experience with him. Peter was very knowledgeable about cars, and introduced a lot of detailed features to us. During the price negotiation, we didn't feel push, he worked hard to get the best price for us. Highly recommend to buy a car with him.

If you're in the market for a new-to-you vehicle, but want to give plug-in power a whirl, the Nissan Leaf is most likely on your must-see list. After all, this EV is tantamount to all-electric power, known for its emission-free driving and enviro-friendliness.
But that's not all the Leaf is regarded for. It's also acknowledged as one of the automotive industry's best plug-ins with driving dynamics that are akin to gasoline-powered vehicles. What's more, the Leaf is economical to buy and own, plus it's a pleasure to drive too.
And speaking of economical, our preowned inventory at Kirkland Nissan is stocked with many Leaf EVs offering exceptional deals - like these 2014 Leaf SV models, which are all priced under $15,000.
This trim comes standard with a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which energizes the 80-kilowatt electric motor. It fetches 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is quite admirable considering it's not run on traditional fossil fuels. When you are ready to charge the battery, the 6.6 kW onboard charger with 220-volt line will get you juiced up within just five hours. You won't experience long periods of downtime with this EV.
The 2014 Leaf SV is also equipped with some really great features that add to its already favorable value. This includes a 7-inch display, six-speaker audio system and navigation, as well as a rearview camera, Bluetooth wireless communication, and heated front and rear seats. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS) are also standard for smooth and safe handling.

There are a number of all-electric vehicles available on the market today, but none are as celebrated or as accessible as the Nissan Leaf. Drivers across Seattle hail this EV for its reasonable purchase price, affordable cost of ownership and zero-emissions performance - and for good reason!
If you've been thinking of joining the ranks of other happy plug-in owners, consider test driving a preowned 2013 Leaf S from our dealership.
This all-electric vehicle is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which powers the 80kW/107-horsepower motor. It outputs an impressive 187 lb-ft of torque, helping the Leaf go head-to-head with its gas-powered counterparts - both on the road and highway. In 10 seconds flat, this EV can reach cruising speeds of 60 mph and can top out at a max speed of 90 mph. If you are a range worry-wart, you can put your fears aside. On a single charge, the 2013 Leaf can achieve up to 84 miles.
Inside, the S trim comes nicely appointed with automatic climate controls, keyless access with push-button start, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and a four-speaker audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and USB port for portable music players. It also features seat upholstery crafted from recycled materials, thus further cementing the Leaf's eco-friendly appeal.

An unfair uncertainty often plagues the electric vehicle market with drivers overlooking the plug-in segment based on ill-advised myths of poor range, high electricity costs, and jarring on-road dynamics. But, Nissan has worked hard to change these negative notions with the availability of the 2015 Leaf SV.
This plug-in performer is anything but unreliable, expensive or fickle. Instead, it's a great preowned EV well-suited for life in Seattle, delivering both efficiency and performance in equal measure.
Under its aerodynamic exterior, the 2015 Nissan Leaf SV's motor is powered by a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which outputs an impressive 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. With a front-wheel drivetrain, integrated Vehicle Dynamic Control System, and sturdy rack-and-pinion steering, this EV takes full command of the road, but with a whisper quiet operation that's smooth, engaged and refined.
On a single charge, it yields an 84-mile range, which is enough to quell even the most anxious of commuters. And when it comes time for a charge, you won't be left with empty pockets either, since the 2015 Leaf can be refreshed for as little as three dollars in less than five hours. That's cheaper than your two-coffee-per-day habit!
See for yourself how efficiency and performance come together in the 2015 Leaf SV. To schedule your test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan today.

If you are a data crunching, number-loving, tech enthusiast, a 2014 Nissan Leaf SV might just be the preowned vehicle for you. This zero-emissions plug-in performer is loaded with some really cool innovations, which make driving and owning a Leaf an electrifying experience.
The 2014 Leaf SV runs on a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers an 80-kilowatt (107-horsepower) electric motor. This motor is responsible for supplying power to the front wheels of the vehicle, while also serving as a generator for the regenerative braking system, which turns wasted brake heat into reusable battery power.
Recharging is handled by a standard onboard 6.6-kilowatt charger, which can restore a fully depleted pack in about four hours. If you have access to a plug-in station at the office, you can travel 84 miles on a single charge, which is great for Seattle commuters.
But, where the Leaf truly shines is its tech - specifically its app integration. All 2014 Leaf SVs can be controlled via a smartphone app, giving drivers access to real-time information about their car. This information is also displayed on the EV's in-dash monitor and shows the charging status, battery energy indicators, and distance/range estimators. Owners can also direct the car to charge when energy rates are the cheapest and pre-heat or pre-cool the vehicle while it's still plugged in.
See how it works here:
Cool, right? To learn more about the 2014 Leaf SV, please contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to schedule a test drive.

If you think slashing your emissions means compromising on performance, think again. There are all-electric vehicles available on the market that produce zero emissions and are pleasant to drive, just like their gasoline counterparts. If this sounds like an ideal solution for you, allow us to introduce the 2013 Nissan Leaf S.
This plug-in performer is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the front wheels via a single-speed reduction gear, enabling a 0-to-60-mph acceleration in less than 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.
And instead of stopping at the gas station for traditional fossil fuels, the 2013 Leaf can be recharged for as little as three dollars. On a full "fill", you can expect to achieve 84 miles, which is more than enough range for Seattle area commuters that travel short distances to work or stay-at-home parents or seniors who hustle between school, extra-curricular activities and local errands.
But, one of the greatest features of the 2013 Nissan Leaf S is how well it behaves on the road. As you drive, its operation is virtually silent thanks to the whisper-quiet motor under the hood. The Leaf also lacks the unnatural brake feel found in other vehicles with regenerative braking systems. Instead, when you apply pressure to the brakes, the Leaf is responsive and quick to react, thus serving up a more spirited driving experience.
With a 2013 Leaf S in your driveway, compromise will be a thing of the past. To schedule your test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

You're meeting a friend downtown for dinner and are running a few minutes late. All municipal parking lots are full, leading you back onto the main thoroughfare to find a spot on the road. As you inch your way along, you can feel dread setting in. You'd rather abandon your plans altogether than embarrass yourself with your horrible parallel parking skills.
Can you relate? Then allow us to introduce you to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-performer comes equipped with an Around View Monitor, which takes the strain out of navigating busy streets and parking lots.
It works by providing a virtual bird's-eye view of your surroundings, so you can see where you need to go even when your line of sight is compromised. The Around View Monitor uses four wide-angle cameras set up on the front, rear, left and right corners of the vehicle, providing a full 360-degree panorama. As you back in and out of your spot, you can do so with confidence, since every angle of your vehicle is visible, along with any potential hazards.

But, as you research specs, reviews and top ten lists, you notice that something has changed.

For families with young children, the Leaf comes equipped with a child seat upper tether anchor and a LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system. Child safety rear door locks are also standard.
On the road, the Leaf SV relies on a host of active safety features, like Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS), to maintain smooth and safe handling. There is also a standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) for added peace of mind.

The 2018 Nissan Leaf isn’t even available for purchase on North American soil, but that hasn’t stopped the EV from collecting global awards and accolades prior to its Seattle release. Most recently, the 2018 Leaf was named a “Best Small Family Car” by the Next Green Car Awards 2017, which recognizes the most environmentally friendly vehicles to debut in the United Kingdom over the last 12 months.
Covering eight different categories, the winners are selected from a shortlist of 32 different models across 18 manufacturers. Winning models cover seven vehicle categories and have all been judged against a range of factors, including environmental, performance and cost criteria. Other considerations, such as suitability for purpose, impact on the market, and value for money, are also taken into account.
The Leaf snagged the same award in 2015 for its 2016 MY rendition, proving what we already know at Kirkland Nissan – the Leaf is built on a solid foundation of excellence and innovation. The 2018 model impressed the judges with its improved range, distinctive design and cutting-edge driving technologies – three factors that families look for when purchasing an all-electric car.
Is your family excited to test drive the 2018 Leaf? Well, good news – you won’t have to wait much longer. The next-gen EV is currently on sale in Japan, but will be arriving at dealerships in North America in just a matter of weeks. As soon as we have inventory, we will be sure to share the news with our customers so that you can schedule a test drive in this family-friendly plug-in.
In the meantime, we have many great new and preowned models in stock at our dealership. Click here to browse our online inventory or visit us at 11930 124th Ave NE in Kirkland, Washington.
