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.

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.

The exterior of the 2015 Leaf is thoughtfully designed to maximize fuel efficiency with an aerodynamic body that reduces drag and wind noise and promotes airflow. It’s practical and functional by nature, yet sleek and stylish too.
Inside, the Leaf S features a well thought out cabin that’s styled to maximize comfort. Riding on a 106.3-inch wheelbase, it provides an ample two-row design, boasting an impressive total passenger compartment volume of 92.4 cu. ft.

Shoulder Room: 54.3 inches
Headroom: 37.3 inches

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

There’s also front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags, and roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.
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.
