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.
In January Ford shook the Seattle streets with a promise of F-Series performance. Its 2019 Ranger Raptor would soon arrive, and it would bring a cloud of V8 exhaust with it. This sport-tuned beast would serve as the ultimate all-terrain option, delivering class-leading performance (335 HP).
How could any automotive brand compete with such a monster? What could possibly be done?
Nissan thinks it has the solution - the 2018 NP300 Navara.
According to Motor Authority, Nissan is considering bringing its 2018 NP300 to Seattle. This platform - which currently boasts a 4.0L V6 capable of generating 261 HP and 281 lb.-ft of torque - could serve as a strong alternative to the Ranger Raptor, connecting drivers to potent mid-size power. Its muscular body (measuring 219-inches long, 79-inches wide, and 73-inches high) can accommodate every off-road demand, blending a seven-speed automatic transmission with a shift-on-the-fly 4WD. This ensures seamless low-to-high gear transitions, crisply adapting to changing terrains; while an electronic locking rear differential promotes balanced traction distribution between the wheels.
When these elements combine, they allow the 2018 NP300 to achieve a 6,500-pound trailering ratio - and they ensure that it can easily keep pace with the Ranger Raptor. Should Nissan decide to bring this truck to Seattle, we’re certain that drivers will prove very receptive.

All-new 2018 models of the Armada have been making their way into our showroom at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, and this full-size SUV is becoming a fast favorite with customers. For one, shoppers love the Armada for its huge cabin and cavernous cargo area, but there's another feature that's generating a lot of buzz - and that's Nissan's Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM).
Upon first glances, the I-RVM looks the same as a traditional rear view mirror, but it also sports a built-in LCD monitor that is activated by pushing a button. When the mirror is turned on, the monitor provides an expanded field of view from the high-performance, narrow-angle camera, which is located at the back of the vehicle. Even in low-spectrum conditions, the I-RVM can help drivers feel more confident while maneuvering in busy parking lots or in traffic, or it can be activated while driving.
Watch this video to get a closer look:
The 2018 Armada is the first Nissan vehicle to feature I-RVM technology and it is currently offered as standard equipment on the top-of-the-line Platinum trim.
To experience this cutting-edge driver assist feature for yourself, stop by our dealership to go for a spin in a 2018 Armada Platinum. We currently have one model in stock, but hurry - it won't last long!

According to a recent article by Auto Express, Nissan will be spending more time and money reimagining and reinventing the interior designs of their vehicles over the next few years. The reason is two-fold: the approaching arrival of autonomous cars, which will not require traditional controls, and the growth in the electric vehicle segment.
In the interview, Mamoru Aoki, Nissan's Executive Design Director, said the brand's vehicle interiors will change dramatically with certain elements arriving as soon as the Nissan IMx electric compact SUV makes its debut in 2020. When Nissan unveiled the concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, it featured a retractable steering wheel, which speaks to the automaker's forward thinking.
And with autonomous vehicles expected to take the tedium out of daily commuting for motorists, more focus will need to be placed on the interiors of vehicles, versus the driving dynamics of the past. Occupants will more likely notice the quality and details found in the cabin and expect a heightened experience. As well, the advent of electric vehicles is allowing Nissan to break the mold. Without the need for bulky engines and exhaust systems, there is more opportunity to redesign vehicle interiors with a focus on simple shapes, higher caliber materials and passenger-centric cabins.
Knowing Nissan, it will only be a matter of time before they debut their innovative and industry-shaking designs. To learn more about how the automaker is changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated into society, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

Word on the street is that an all-new Nissan Altima is coming for the 2019 model year and it has Seattle area sedan shoppers very excited. The redesigned vehicle will debut next month at the 2018 New York International Auto Show, which is scheduled for March 28.
This will be the sixth generation for the Altima, which hasn't been revamped since 2013. A top-secret prototype was spotted last summer and Nissan also previewed the design with the Vmotion 2.0 concept car at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Industry insiders don't have any concrete details to share about the next-gen Altima, but some are speculating that the sedan will keep much of its current foundation with some variations. There is talk about a four-cylinder powerplant, as well as the possibility of V6 and hybrid options for drivers wanting increased performance or better fuel economy. Front-wheel drive with CVT is expected to be the standard setup, though some automotive journalists have said that an all-wheel-drive option might be available too. There is also some speculation that Nissan will include some of its ProPilot technologies on the 2019 Altima as well.
Only time will tell what's in store for the next model year. We are eagerly awaiting news from the upcoming New York International Auto Show and will be sure to provide updates as they are released.
In the meantime, you can learn more about the Nissan Altima by contacting our team in Seattle, Washington. We currently have many 2018 models in stock, which are available for test driving today.

The Nissan Motor Corporation recently announced that its best-selling electric vehicle, the Leaf, has earned a five-star safety rating from the Japan New Car Assessment Program. This is the highest rating possible that an automobile can be awarded.
The zero-emission Leaf scored 94.8 points out of a possible 100 for occupant safety in a collision. The program is run by Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the National Agency for Automotive Safety and Victims' Aid.
According to Nissan, the 2018 Leaf offers a host of standard safety features, which contributed to the EV's five-star rating. They include a highly rigid body structure, six SRS airbags, seats with enforced headrests and back frames, and seat belts with pre-tensioners and load-limiting capabilities for the front and rear outboard seating positions. The Leaf is also equipped with a number of advanced technologies, including ProPilot for autonomous single-lane driving on highways, ProPilot Park autonomous parking, and e-Pedal, which lets drivers accelerate and brake by operating only the accelerator pedal.
The next-gen Leaf also passed the Japan New Car Assessment Program's electric shock protection trial with flying colors, which tests to see how well a vehicle protects occupants from being shocked in a collision. The EV's highly protective battery case, layout and body structure performed extremely well by shielding passengers from high-voltage parts. The car is also equipped with a high-voltage cut-off device that activates in a collision, thus offering additional security.
The 2018 Leaf brings top safety to Seattle, Washington! To schedule your test drive in this award-winning EV, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan.
In the highway race too often do you prove the tortoise - languishing in every lane, watching as sport-tuned sedans and nimble coupes rev past. Slow and steady, you think, doesn’t always ensure a first-place victory. Instead you feel the stress of every second; and your crossover always seems to arrive late to each adventure.
According to the Booneville Democrat, Nissan has fused its latest Rogue Sport with superior speeds. A 2.0L four-cylinder waits beneath its hood, generating 141 HP and 147 lb.-ft of torque. A direct ignition system promises seamless starts (utilizing continuously variable valve timing to instantly engage the engine), while an XTronic CVT delivers smooth automatic handling. The front-wheel-drive ensures a balanced ride, blending an independent strut front suspension with electric steering; and an included Sport Mode provides ample power, engaging with the press of a button to activate the DOHC platform.
When these elements combine they allow the 2018 Rogue Sport to achieve class-leading performance:
0 to 60: 9.8 seconds.
Quarter Mile: 17.5 seconds.
No longer experience sluggish speeds on the highway. Instead trust the new Sport’s peppy 16-valve engine to push you past the competition. To learn more about this and other Nissan crossovers contact us today!
With every adventure comes a demand for space - with your family piling inside the tiny confines of a sedan, trying to shuffle boxes and bags out of the way. They battle cargo (and each other) for a few spare inches; and they quickly turn vicious when you slide into the front seat, jealous of the precious legroom you have. The miles are long and nasty.
Nissan suggests seeking a more peaceable journey - by pairing each expedition with its 2018 Rogue Sport SL!
As the Booneville Democrat explains, the 2018 Rogue Sport SL delivers a passenger-friendly experience. Its spacious frame - which measures 172-inches long, 72-inches wide, and 63-inches high - adapts to every need, allowing arms to stretch and toes to curl:
Front Head Room: 39.6 inches.
Front Leg Room: 42.8 inches.
Front Shoulder Room: 56.6 inches.
Rear Head Room: 38.3 inches.
Rear Leg Room: 33.4 inches.
Rear Shoulder Room: 55.7 inches.
Passengers will no longer endure cramped quarters. Instead the new Rogue Sport will allow them to indulge in every mile, with its 104.2-inch wheelbase boasting leather-appointed seating and ample comfort features (such as power lumbar support and six-way manual adjusters).
To further impress, this Nissan crossover also offers a maximum cargo length of 62.3 cu.-ft - effortlessly accommodating luggage, sporting equipment, and other items. Take advantage of split-folding cushions and the Divide-N-Hide system (which enables drivers to evenly distribute payloads in the rear bay, utilizing a series of customizable shelves and container units to maximum storage) for superior convenience.
With the release of the 2018 Rogue Sport SL, Nissan promises a more comfortable off-road experience. To learn more contact us today!
Across Seattle comes a wailing - with Juke fans wringing their hands, lamenting the sudden cancellation of their beloved crossover. Nissan has chosen to phase this platform from its production schedule, wishing to deliver a new option later in the year; but fans have been crying out in protest. What could possibly replace their favorite quirky speedster?
Allow us to introduce you to the 2018 Kicks.
As Business Insider explains, Nissan will soon reveal its 2018 Kicks - the spiritual successor to the Juke throne. While this platform lacks the dynamic styling that made its predecessor so undeniable, it does deliver features that should please even the most discerning drivers: including an advanced infotainment system. A 7-inch touchscreen frames the central console, offering high-definition access to wireless Bluetooth links and the Connect app suite (stream content from your favorite sites, including Facebook and Pandora). A BOSE audio shakes the cabin, with its speakers embedded directly into the seats to ensure quality sound; while SiriusXM radio promises access to thousands of channels.
The 2018 Kicks also boasts smartphone convenience - with Nissan fusing it with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto software.

With the release of the 2018 Frontier SL, Nissan seeks to elevate the pick-up experience. No longer will drivers be forced to endure harsh vinyls and flat-cushioned seats. Instead they’ll be able to indulge in each mile, with comfort emphasized and convenience delivered.

The front cushions feature multi-level heating systems, while all positions benefit from 4-way power adjusters and integrated lumbar support. Both the steering wheel and shift knob boast custom stitching, while dual-zone automatic climate controls ensure optimum comfort (raise or lower temperatures for each passenger with the turn of a dial). A power-sliding moonroof delivers access to one-touch tilting technology and UV-reducing tinted glass.
To ensure further ease, the 2018 SL also features tubular step rails - allowing individuals to easily scale its massive frame (219-inches in length, 73-inches in width, 70-inches in height). Their heavy-gauge steel materials and exclusive powder-coatings ensure long-lasting support.
The 2018 Frontier SL allows drivers to enjoy their travels - embracing comfort with every V6 rev. To learn more about this and other Nissan trucks contact our team today.
