Above & Beyond
This fellow is one of a kind. In all my life I’ve never had a good experience at a car dealership until I went to Key West Ford. What an amazing group of people. My focus titanium(2017) is the second purchase that I’ve made off Michael both experiences were something to write home about.
Whether you’re in the market for a Ford or any other kind of vehicle please do yourself a favour and check out the great people at Key West Ford.
Helped me find the car I want
This is my first car purchase. When I came to here, I didn't have a clear idea on what car I shall buy. Allan showed me around on several probable ways to buy my first car. The next day, he also found another car that suit my current need.
As I am new to Canada, there are a lot of differences on law, rules and regulations from the country I was in. Allan provided useful information on all of them and helped me get to a purchase solution that can fit into my short term and long term plan.
Now I have used the car for some time and everything seems good :)

Great pricing, very helpful. I'm from out of town and was on a tight schedule. Jag and the rest of the folks at key west were sensitive to my time constraints and had my truck ready for delivery with no hiccups.
We had a small car budget in mind and after talking it over and trying various model we settled for something newer than expected without breaking the bank.
Very happy with my purchase and recommend to anyone looking for a used or new car to start at key West Ford.
Great experience buying my 1st Ford
I knew I wanted an Escape and had been shopping online for a few months. I found the vehicle I wanted and made an appointment for a test drive. It happened to be a Key West Ford. I made the appointment online and Jag reached out to me very quickly to set it up.
Jag was very friendly and talkative but certainly not pushy or how you've been trained to think of a used car salesperson. He answered my questions and was generally a nice guy to chat with.
I mentioned very early on what I was looking for but that I wasn't going to making a purchase that day. Even though he knew I wasn't buying he still wanted to make sure I knew everything I could about the vehicle I'd driven as well as anything else I might be looking into a vehicle for. I took his card when I left and made darn sure to get in touch with him once I'd made my decision.
I got a great deal from Jag and Key West Ford and would recommend you going to talk to him if you're on the fence about a new Ford.

If you are shopping for a new vehicle offering exceptional utility, snappy handling and a spacious cargo area, be sure to give the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport a closer look. Recently ranked on the U.S. News and World Report’s top five list for the best Subcompact SUVs, this vehicle is an ideal option for urban drivers wanting a bit more car for the money.
For 2018, the Rogue Sport is offered in three well-equipped trims, including S, SV and SL. Power is generated by a 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine, which produces 141 horsepower, and comes mated to an Xtronic transmission with eco-mode and a four-wheel independent suspension. For drivers who want to travel off the beaten path on the weekends, the Rogue Sport is offered with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, while front-wheel drive is standard.
But where this subcompact SUV truly shines is its cargo room, which helped the vehicle earn top marks with the reviewers at U.S. News and World Report. With the seats up, you’ll have no trouble loading it to the brim with 22.9 cubic feet of cargo, but if that’s not enough, the second-row seats fold down, boasting a total of 61.1 cubic feet of space. Most class rivals can't compete with that – not even the Honda HR-V or the Mazda CX-3.

Under the hood of every 2018 Maxima, you’ll find a nicely tuned 3.5-liter V6 engine, which is rated at 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque.

Best of all, this sedan sips less fuel than many other competitors in its class, netting an impressive 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is very good for a large vehicle of this size.
Inside, luxury reigns supreme with a spacious interior that comfortably seats five passengers. Throughout the sedan, there are soft-touch materials and dressy stitching, which provide an upscale appeal, as well as metallic and wood-like trim panels that are modern and stylish.

There is a new ruler of the road - with Nissan unveiling its 2018 Titan King Cab. This half-ton platform promises class-leading performance, leaving the less is more philosophy in the proverbial dust.
As Villager Publishing explains, the 2018 King Cab proves a dynamic force on the highway. Every line has been tailored to impress, delivering super-sized performance with each mile.
Conquer every terrain in the new Titan. This platform boasts a massive frame (229-inches long, 81-inches wide, and 77-inches high) that rolls over each challenge with ease. The extended ground clearance (8.3-inches) accommodates even the roughest roads, while a 16.4-degree approach angle lets the fascia move smoothly over curbs.
To ensure best-in-class payloads (1,620 pounds), the King Cab boasts an extended bed - which delivers 6.5 feet of storage capabilities. The 50-inch liner depth pairs with a 63.8-inch wheel-to-wheel width, branding this bay perfect for every long-haul need.
A massive wheelbase (139.8-inches) delivers superior cabin space, with the 2018 Titan yielding a six-passenger configuration. Riders can sprawl comfortably in 41.8-inches of frontal legroom and 38.5-inches of rear legroom, respectively.
With the release of the King Cab edition, Nissan elevates its Titan from pick-up truck to half-ton heavyweight. Learn more about this bigger is better mantra by visiting our dealership today!
It’s an obscure view. You peer around a bulky A-Pillar, trying to gauge the distance between your car and the curb. Your neck strains; your eyes squint; and… you still can’t determine just how many inches separate you from a sudden collision.
According to My San Antonio, the 2019 Altima SV delivers intuitive support to drivers - with Nissan fusing it with an Automatic Rear Braking system. Radar sensors flank the back bumper, releasing GPS-refined signals to asses the surrounding terrain. Real-time mapping functions then create a 3D representation of the area, noting the location of both stationary and moving objects. Should any of these obstacles venture too close to the sedan, a three-tier process will begin:
One: Audio cues will be released, alerting drivers to the presence of a potential threat (such as an approaching car or a parking garage pillar).
Two: The ABS system will engage, with gentle pressure applied to the brakes to smoothly decelerate the Altima and avoid a collision.
Three: The seat-belts will subtly tighten, helping to steady passengers and reduce the effects of whiplash.
Automatic Rear Braking provides autonomous aid - allowing drivers to more efficiently respond to situations and negating the chance of a crash. Through its advanced radar technology, this system promotes safety with every reversal; and it launches the Altima SV to the front of the mid-size pack, branding it an ideal option for families.

Absurdity reigns supreme of social streams - with users inundated with endless gifs, clips, and random musings. Hours are wasted wading through the virtual chaos each day.
Nissan proves, however, that there is value in tweeting - because the 2018 Armada Mountain Patrol has arrived.
According to CNET, Nissan has launched a unique automotive experience - allowing its social media followers to design an entire crossover! The 2018 Armada Mountain Patrol (a concept vehicle that will soon begin the circuit rounds) was pieced together by driver input. Men and women flooded the Twitter-sphere with a series of off-road suggestions… and these were then implemented into the ultimate all-terrain option.
The Mountain Patrol rests on 17-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Its sport-tuned suspension delivers a nine-inch ground clearance (allowing the platform to propel itself over every terrain), while rock sliders protect the sides from debris. Steel bumpers anchor the front and rear; an LED light-bar cuts through the dark; and a hefty 12,000-pound winch frames the back, allowing drivers to effortlessly connect to every Class IV trailer.
To further impress, this Armada also features a Lowrance navigation system - which delivers turn-by-turn route planning and real-time environmental monitoring to ensure seamless travels. Drivers can easily interface with this suite via the eight-inch LCD touchscreen, taking advantage of its streaming forecasts, traffic alerts, and gridline support.
Every detail of the 2018 Mountain Patrol is tailored for the off-road experience… and defined by passengers. The automotive world will never be the same.

It’s an all too familiar rhythm - with your car stopping-starting-stalling its way down the lane. You jerk constantly in your seat, unable to fight against the friction; and a simple commute becomes an unwanted thrill-ride.
Nissan seeks to change this - planning a fully autonomous experience by 2020.
According to the NY Daily News, Nissan intends to bolster its fleet with the ProPilot system - an automated suite that utilizes advanced radar sensors and high-definition cameras to monitor traffic patterns. Speed and lane trajectories are carefully assessed, and then the steering column is engaged to ensure smooth handling in stop-and-go scenarios. All acceleration is intuitively controlled to provide a refined cabin experience.
Currently, the ProPilot is only available in select platforms (including the Rogue and LEAF). Soon, however, it will anchor more than 20 vehicles - with Nissan intending to improve the highway experience for every driver. By 2020 this suite will deliver speed moderation and total transmission control to the: Altima, Armada, X-Trail, and more (a full list should be revealed by the end of the summer).
This will assure superior handling on the road - with drivers able to rely on Intelligent Cruise Control (which provides custom speed settings) to simplify their travels. The ProPilot system, according to Nissan, is intended to reduce stress and increase performance; and its seamless steering and ABS engagements brand it ideal for fickle traffic.

If you drive an older model Leaf all-electric vehicle and are looking to replace the battery pack, you’ll be pleased to hear that Nissan will be offering rebuilt packs this month.
Currently, the refurbished power cells are only available in Japan; however, Nissan is investigating whether or not they can expand the program to the United States. Based on data from Green Car Reports, the cost for each rebuilt pack is $2,850 in Japan, which is more economical than replacing with a new battery at $6,500.
At the moment, Nissan’s program only covers 24-kWh batteries, but the automaker does have plans to begin recycling 30- and 40-kWh batteries, which are found in newer model year Leaf EVs and boast a longer range.
According to Nissan, their new battery recycling plant in Naime, Japan, is the first such factory recycling lithium-ion batteries. Naime is the region devastated by the earthquake and tsunami that melted down nuclear reactors in Fukushima. The plant will also recycle batteries from forklifts and large-scale storage systems and turn used electric car batteries into power plants for other industrial uses.
