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!
Total beginner at used car purchase. My salesperson Nik cheerful honest and well-informed found me the ideal car Kia Rio 2016 for a super price. 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.
Found just the car I needed
I came to Key West Ford looking for a used vehicle within a strict budget. When my first choice was out of my price range, Jag asked about my needs an preferences and found me a perfect fit for at a better price.
Amber is the best they have, by far
Amber is the only service advisor at Key West I trust. She's a straight shooter and doesn't make things up or make promises she can't keep. I was at my wits' end when dealing with Tony, I was ready to walk away from the dealership entirely, but Amber, with Sue's help, restored some faith in them. They are still slow, and a little too expensive, but since they are local to me, I will stick with them, so long as it's Amber I am dealing with. If she's not there that day, I don't even bother.

A distinctive design, whisper-quiet zero-emissions performance and an especially roomy interior have all earned the 2017 Nissan Leaf serious acclaim from automotive journalists and drivers alike. If you haven’t test driven one, we suggest you check out the SL trim level, which boasts impressive range from its plug-in-powered motor.
Unlike traditional vehicles that utilize expensive gasoline, the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL is electrified by a 30-kWh battery which supplies energy to the 80-kW AC synchronous motor. Together, they generate 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, and can go 107 miles on a single charge. When it comes time to refresh the battery, the Leaf is equipped with a 6.6-kW onboard charger that can renew a fully depleted battery in about four hours from a 240-volt Level 2 charging station.
On the exterior, the SL trim boasts stylish LED headlights, which use little energy for illumination, and an aerodynamic body that reduces drag. Inside, the Leaf comes equipped with leather heated seats throughout, a NissanConnect 7-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity for your comfort and convenience. A surround-view camera system and premium Bose stereo system are optional add-ons as well.

Owning a vehicle comes with a lot of costs – there are the usual suspects like financing and insurance fees, as well as regular maintenance and repairs. Add in rising fuel prices and it can feel like your pay check disappears before it even hits your bank. And, if you are driving an older model year gas guzzler, it certainly might!
Instead, why not consider a preowned all-electric vehicle, like a 2015 Nissan Leaf SL? This battery-powered performer will not only excite you with its range and smooth performance, but it will also eradicate expensive gas station visits for as long as you own the car.
The 2015 Leaf runs on a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which sends electricity to the 80 kW AC synchronous motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. Charging is managed by a 6.6-kWh charger, which restores a fully depleted battery in four hours when a 240-volt Level 2 charging station is used. DC quick-charging is also optional, which lets you recharge the battery to 80 percent of capacity in about 30 minutes at more than 500 CHAdeMO sites nationwide. The range on the 2015 Leaf SL is rated at 84 miles and will only cost you a few dollars in electricity costs – less than your daily premium take-out coffee.

A distinctive design, silent operation and a roomy cabin make the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL unlike any other vehicle on Seattle’s roads. If you’ve been thinking of slipping into something more efficient, consider test driving a preowned model at Kirkland Nissan.
Powered by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor, the 2017 Leaf produces 187 lb-ft of torque without a single drop of gasoline. This EV draws its energy from a 30-kwh battery, which is neatly tucked under the cabin’s floor, and can be recharged from a fully depleted status within five hours using a 240-volt plug. All told, this will net you 107 miles of range or about $3 in charging costs. Expensive gas station visits are history with this plug-in as your eco-friendly chariot.
The Leaf’s sleek body is aero-driven in order to maximize efficiency, while the hatchback design offers acres of rooms inside the cabin. The back seat offers ample stretch out space for two adults (or three in a pinch), thanks to its 106.3-inch wheelbase. Even the Leaf's cargo area is deeper than you might expect, boasting 30 cubic feet of haulage with the rear row folded down or 23.6 with it in place.
Range, efficiency and versatility are the hallmarks of the 2017 Leaf SL. To see if this EV might be the one for you, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.

If you’ve been wanting to switch from your traditional gas-powered vehicle, but have been wary about the range of an all-electric vehicle, allow us to turn your attention to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer combines advanced battery technology with an aerodynamic design to achieve a 107-mile range on a single charge, which is considered the best in its class for the 2016 model year.
The Leaf zero-emissions EV is fuelled by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor that powers the front wheels to produce a healthy 187 lb-ft of torque. It draws its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted under the cabin floor. This 30-kwh battery is where the Leaf gains its admirable range from. Previous model years were equipped with a 24-kwh battery that was only capable of offering double-digit range, which wasn’t practical for some drivers.
Efficiency on the SV model rings in at 112 MPGe or about $3 per charge, according to The Car Connection. With no need for gasoline, expensive fill-ups will be history and you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint as well.
