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 drive 100 miles a day or have access to convenient EV charging at the office, the 2017 Leaf SL is a fantastic choice for Seattle area commuters in need of a battery-powered car, but at a mainstream price.
As one of the higher trim levels, this all-electric vehicle is the crème-de-la crème, offering great range and value with many standard features.

If you stop and think about electric cars, the Nissan Leaf is likely to come to mind. Since its launch in 2011, this EV has become synonymous with plug-in, all-electric vehicles, known for its affordable price point, nice driving dynamics and user-friendliness.
And aside from its whisper quiet operation, unique aerodynamic design and battery power, you’d think the Leaf is just like any other five-passenger compact hatchback. But, we promise: it’s so much more.
Take the 2014 Leaf SV for example. It’s powered by a lithium-ion battery pack mounted beneath the vehicle’s floor, which pumps out 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque from the 80kW motor. Energy is directed to the front wheels by a single-speed reduction gear, enabling the EV to go from 0-to-60-mph in 10 seconds flat with a top speed of 90 mph. It also features a 6.6 kW onboard charger and 220-volt line, which juices up the Leaf in just five hours – more than enough time to gain a full charge for the drive home while at the office. Total range per charge is an impressive 84 miles.
Inside, the Leaf SV is equipped with many nice touches, like a 7” display, six speakers and navigation. There’s also a handy rearview camera, Bluetooth wireless communication, and heated front and rear seats – all standard!

And, just this week, anticipation has grown even deeper after hearing news that the Leaf took top honors at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) annual Unveiled ceremony, which was presented by the Consumer Technology Association.
In fact, the 2018 Leaf didn’t receive one honor, but two, which cements what we have always known about this zero-emission vehicle – the Nissan Leaf is pioneering the way with innovative advancements that change how we lead our daily lives and lessen our carbon footprint.
At the CES, two Nissan technologies received recognition (ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies), earning the CES Best of Innovation Award Winner for Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology, as well as the CES Honoree for Tech for a Better World. This is the 2018 Leaf’s first honors, but we expect many more to come.

Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or slash your monthly fuel costs altogether, a preowned all-electric 2013 Nissan Leaf S is an obvious choice. Best of all, you can find a four-year-old used model for under $10K, like at our dealership in Seattle, Washington.
The 2013 Leaf S is energized by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted beneath the floor. The 80kW/107-horsepower motor churns out 207 lb-ft of torque and can easily go from zero to 60 mph in about 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.
As for the cost of ownership, Nissan claims its very affordable with a full recharge estimated at about three dollars, which equates to an 84-mile range. When compared to the rising cost of gasoline, this amounts to huge savings over the life of the EV.
But, one of the nicest features about this Leaf is how it drives. Aside from its whisper quiet operation, the 2013 Nissan Leaf S drives and handles like any mainstream vehicle, thanks to its smooth as silk regenerative braking system. The electric power steering is also light and nicely weighted for both highway and city driving.
Not sure if a 2013 Leaf is right for you? This video might sway you:

Forget the hassle of gas—this is a battery-only wonder machine. The 30-kWh, 360-volt lithium-ion setup offers a 107-mile range and a matching 107 HP. Peppy! And then there’s the fantastic MPGe rating, which provides a considerable 124 city / 101 highway. Discover Seattle on a single charge.
Consumers used to driving in larger vehicles may assume they’ll feel less secure in a compact car like the LEAF. However, Nissan’s automobile excels in most safety categories—in fact, thanks to its electronic stability control and seat-mounted torso airbags, the IIHS awarded this model its highest scores in the “Moderate Overlap Front,” “Roof Strength,” “Head Restraints & Seats,” and “Side” tests. This means you’ll be able to scoot around Seattle, knowing that your passengers are in good hands.
The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle. The included 24-kWh battery and one-speed automatic transmission offer up 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. However, the true wonderment happens when you consider the EPA-estimated MPGe, which refers to the “miles per gallon gasoline equivalent,” or the average distance traveled per energy unit consumed. On the S model, this is 126 city / 108 highway for a combined 114. Fuel range is at 84. Amazing!
The LEAF offers far more than efficiency. Instead a five-inch NissanConnect screen comes standard (improving upon the 'no-display' design from the previous year). This delivers access to a variety of tech options, including:
Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling.
A Text Messaging Assistant.
USB Ports (which are compatible with smartphones, iPods, and other devices).
All of these features provide drivers with seamless media access - utilizing voice-activated interfacing and wireless digital links to improve every download. Economy and convenience combine.
