I bought my Jeep from there. It was the smoothest purchase i ever made. Tom was delightful. He wasn’t pushy as some sales people you might encounter. I’ve had a few sales people I dealt with a few dealership prior to buying my car and I made my decision with Ford because of this experience( I have to mention Hamid at Subaru Dealership at Boundary is also great.). Tom is very informative and helpful. I can’t say enough good things about Tom and how professional him

Pleasant experiance in purchasing my new vehicle.
The total experience of purchasing my new vehicle from Allan was enjoyable. Allan was very informative explaining thing and did not push for a sale allowing me to come to the decision that the car I wanted was the right vehicle for me. Every one else I dealt with at Key West Ford was also very friendly and helpful. All in all it was a pleasant experience and I would definitely do it again when the time comes.
Very pleasant car purchase experience with Peter
Found a car online, called in and scheduled an appointment with Peter. He got the car prepared before we arrived and got us a great deal. Highly recommend!
great guys. Rob set me up with a great truck, at a good price. when we were finishing, Ian came out and helped get the truck ready with paper work licence plates etc... Wes was a down to earth manager. I was impressed how these guys and everyone else in the sales department worked as a team. my truck was detailed perfectly. I would recommend this dealership to anyone looking for a new or used vehicle. I have certainly found the dealership that I would do business with in the future.
Alan was great to deal with quick to get the deal done the whole crew got me in and out in record time with no hassle
Jag answered all of our questions and was helpful in working with us to negotiate a price that was within our budget on a new vehicle.

You defy the trends - seeking the road less traveled, searching for answers to questions never asked. Common isn’t a word within your lexicon… and the iPhone certainly isn’t in your pocket. Android is instead your device of choice.
Nissan applauds your differences - and wishes to accommodate them through seamless smartphone integration. Check out the 2018 LEAF and its Android Auto system!
According to Nissan, the 2018 LEAF will cater to more than Apple fans. Instead Android users will (finally) find their needs addressed - with the Connect infotainment console proving perfectly compatible. Sync your device and discover endless applications, including:
Google Assistant - utilize voice-commands to access this program, which maintains schedules, records notes, and reads text messages aloud. It acts as a digital secretary while traveling.
Google Maps - this real-time option displays both the road and its conditions, recognizing potential hazards (such as poor weather or reported crashes). It can quickly calculate alternative routes, and it offers turn-by-turn navigation through 3D mapping and interactive GPS.
Music Content - Android Auto boasts a suite of media options, allowing drivers to customize their playlists. Stream songs from Spotify and Pandora; access files from your Google accounts; and use the steering wheel-mounted controls to scan through the AM/FM radio.

Nissan is back with another exciting collaboration with the legendary Hollywood automotive fabricators at Vehicle Effects – the same designers that created the seven "Star Wars: The Last Jedi”-inspired cars at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
But this time, Nissan didn’t reveal “The Force” – they unveiled a trio of 2018 Leaf concept cars, inspired by “A Wrinkle in Time.” This collaboration celebrates the automaker’s partnership with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which produced the film.
These one-of-a-kind Leaf vehicles use advanced LED technology to create a mesmerizing light show effect similar to the one seen in the movie. With breakthrough technology being a key part of the storyline, collaborating with the Nissan Leaf was a natural fit. After all, the cornerstone of the Leaf EV is the inclusion of revolutionary technologies, like ProPilot, which relieves the stresses of highway driving for motorists.
According to CarScoops, all three modified Nissan Leafs use design elements inspired by the extravagant costumes worn by the film's characters, including Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon). Custom touch-sensitive screens covering the windshield and side windows also act as a stage for the interactive light show, which mimics the "wrinkle" effect from the movie. Additionally, the concept cars are equipped with heat-sensing cameras that track and react to approaching users.
Unfortunately for Disney fans, these Leaf show vehicles are not for sale. However, they do celebrate a new world of technology, which can be found on stock 2018 Leaf models.

By now, you've heard all of the amazing things that the Nissan Leaf can do: it eliminates gas costs with its plug-in performance, it can drive 150 miles on a single charge, and it can even let motorists accelerate, decelerate and stop their car by using the accelerator pedal alone. All pretty impressive, right?
Well, now, the Leaf is up to its latest endeavor - partaking in the Electric Explorer African Challenge 2018, which is the first-ever EV expedition across Africa.
Driven by Polish traveler, Arkady Paweł Fiedler, and accompanied by photographer Albert Wójtowicz, the two men will traverse great distances in an unmodified Leaf, starting in Western Africa and finally crossing western Europe to their home country. Poor road conditions, limited charging infrastructure and dramatically diverse weather conditions are sure to make their trek a challenge, but the adventurers are confident.
"We're optimistic," said Fiedler in a press release. "As part of the tests, I've already travelled over 4,000 kilometers in Poland in a Nissan Leaf, and I'm positively surprised by the driving range offered."
Apart from being the first ever EV journey across the African continent, the expedition also aims to raise awareness of plug-in technologies that are now available to the masses. The goal is to show consumers that they have a choice - all of which has a great impact on the earth and our environment.
Curious to see how well the Leaf fares? You can follow along with Fiedler's journey on Facebook and Instagram.

It’s a tradition of dull lines - with the electric market defined by bulky plastics and unforgiving vinyls. Great efficiency demands a sacrifice of design, and drivers resign themselves to hastily crafted cabins.
Nissan thinks it’s time for a change - which is why it’s offering Seattle families the sleek style they crave, bolstering its 2018 LEAF S with a brand-new interior! Let’s take a peek inside.
Open the door of the 2018 LEAF S and smile. The days of bland design are gone - with this all-electric platform boasting plush cloth seating (which, as Kelley Blue Book notes, delivers metallic-inspired coloring and available contrast stitching). The soft-materials of the dashboard and center stack console feature a taupe-scheme, while a seven-inch instrument gauge offers vivid LCD lighting. A slick rotary-style transmission provides a retro-touch, and aluminum accents are found throughout.
Nissan believes that variety is the spice of life - which is why it’s fused the 2018 LEAF S with several distinct color options. Drivers can create a custom cabin by choosing: Light Gray, Solid Black, or Black and Blue.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF, Nissan allows drivers to achieve mid-size styling in the EV market. To learn more about the S' available cabin features contact our team 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.
Complacency is a dirty word - which is why Nissan has struck it from the company lexicon, refusing to acknowledge its existence. Engineers aren’t allowed to whisper it; designers can’t debate its merits; and compliance officers must never entertain its meaning. Instead they must all emphasize innovation with every breath.
It’s this vocabulastic dedication that has enabled Nissan to launch its 2018 LEAF - and dominate the global market.
According to Electrek, the 2018 LEAF will soon rev from country to country. Nissan is expanding its production processes, seeking to establish itself in every corner of the world; and, to do this, it’s bringing an all-green initiative to seven additional markets: Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and South Korea.
Nissan has never proven a strong presence in these areas - with sales trailing its Ford and Honda competitors. The brand is confident, however, that the 2018 LEAF will deliver massive sales. This all-electric hatchback has already earned record-breaking pre-orders in Europe and the United States; and consumer interest is at a high. It’s the perfect time, therefore, to dominate the Australasia market.
How will the LEAF accomplish this task? We believe its e-powertrain will impress every driver - yielding a peppy 147 HP (a 38% increase over the previous generation) and 236 lb.-ft of torque (a 26% increase, respectively). The laminated lithium-ion battery cells provide 60% more energy acceleration to ensure a 150-mile range; and the recently stiffened torsion bar allows for stable handling. This platform will maneuver through every challenge with ease.

Great news for Seattle area all-electric vehicle fans! A recent Automotive News article reports that Nissan will add four EVs to its line-up over the next five years, along with its luxury counterpart Infiniti, which is expected to add two EVs to its product line within the same timeframe.
These six battery-powered vehicles are the Japanese automaker's share of the 12 EVs that are now planned for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi brand through to 2022. Up until now, a breakdown has not been available by brand. But, according to Toshihiro Hirai, Corporate VP for Powertrain and EV Engineering, the six Nissan vehicles will only include full all-electric vehicles and not plug-in hybrids, like the new e-Power system, which is currently available in Japan on the Nissan Note.
Rumours of an electric SUV have also been swirling for quite some time, especially since the release of the Nissan IMx Concept at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. And there is the likelihood of a multi-purpose vehicle as well, which could prove popular with large families looking for an alternative to gas-powered minivans. These prospective models would join the next-gen Leaf, which is currently for sale in North America and boasts a significantly revised design and increased powertrain performance.
Can't wait until 2022 to purchase one of Nissan's newest all-electric vehicles? Satiate your hunger for plug-in performance with a 2018 Leaf EV. Models are arriving soon atour dealership - pre-book your test drive in one today!
In 1962 Madeleine L’Engle introduced readers to her tesseract-world - transporting them across space and dreams alike. A Wrinkle In Time (which charted the adventures of young Meg Murray) brought weighty science-fiction themes to children, allowing them to explore life, death, and love. The book proved an instant success and has remained a steady presence on the charts ever since.
Soon it will also beguile screen audiences - with Disney bringing a live-action version to theaters in March 2018. This adaptation will star Hollywood elite (Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, and Oprah Winfrey); and it will also serve as the new Nissan LEAF’s first leading role.
According to Inside EVs, the 2018 LEAF will make its debut in the Wrinkle In Time film. This hatchback will rev onto the screen, providing lithium-ion power to Meg Murray and her friends. Its aerodynamic body - complete with slim side panels and a drag-reducing rear diffuser - will prove perfect for traveling between worlds, effortlessly adapting to every changing incline; while its portable trickle-charge cable will ensure on-the-go ease, delivering a 120-volt connection to bolster the battery. Intelligent Trace Control technology should keep the platform right on track, engaging the tires as needed to ensure smooth cornering; and Active Ride software will mitigate bumps to promote a smooth experience.
Meg and her team will certainly find inter-dimensional travel much easier!

It’s a collection of numbers. Throughout January critics have jotted down every EPA estimation - comparing drive-ranges and mileage promises, trying to decipher the slightest power variations. The impending release of the 2018 LEAF left them anxious for answers. Would this all-electric hatchback deliver the necessary performance? Could Nissan surpass its competitors?
Both questions can be greeted with an enthusiastic Yes.
According to Jalopnik, the 2018 LEAF’s drive-range has just been revealed - and it’s a staggering 151-miles. While this number had been speculated for months, no official confirmation was available… until now. After rigorously testing the 40-kWH battery pack, the EPA assures critics that this Nissan platform will deliver best-in-class power; and it will easily surpass its closest rivals (the Ford Focus Electric, the Honda Clarity, and the Volkswagen e-Golf).
How does it achieve such an impressive performance? Nissan has fused the 2018 LEAF with both a 110-kW AC motor and a 192-cell lithium-ion system. When paired with a shortened gearbox (which improves responses times and eliminates down-shifting), the hatch can rev for more than 150 miles per single full charge. This will brand it a perfect option for Seattle commuters, accommodating their day-to-day needs with ease.

2018 has been a big year for Nissan. Just in the last month, accolades and awards have been rolling in for the automaker, highlighting excellence in all areas of their product line-up. The Nissan Xmotion concept car recently drove off with a 2018 EyesOn Award, while the Leaf EV took high honors in the electric car category of What Car? Car of the Year Awards. And now, Nissan is gearing up once again for another win; the Leaf was just named a finalist in the World Car of the Year Awards!
Representing the electric vehicle category, the Nissan Leaf is up against three other models: the BMW 530e iPerformance, Chevrolet Cruze Diesel, and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. A panel of 82 automotive journalists will evaluate the vehicles and the field of finalists will be narrowed down even further at the Geneva Motor Show. The winner for the World Car of the Year Awards will be officially announced at the New York Auto Show on March 28, 2018.
At Kirkland Nissan, we are expecting our Leaf EV to come out on top, especially since the next-gen model brings new enhancements and innovations to the masses. This includes Nissan's all-new ProPilot Assist technology, which is the future of semi-autonomous driving. The 2018 model also boasts an increased range of up to 150 miles, which is considered a huge gain in the plug-in electric world.
And, the Leaf is no stranger to this award. The EV took home the win back in 2011 and we are confident that it can do it again.
Are you excited for the winners to be announced? We are too! Stay tuned; we hope to deliver news of the Leaf's victory later this spring!
