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.

If your Seattle area family is looking for a roomy seven-passenger SUV with car-like dynamics and good fuel economy, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder is a strong contender. This particular model is easy to pilot with its smooth ride and compliant on-road manners and the Platinum trim comes fully-loaded with some really awesome features.
Let's take a closer look by starting with what's under the hood. The 2016 Pathfinder is anchored by a mighty V6 engine that offers a good balance of power and efficiency. It easily tows 5,000 lbs and returns up to 27 mpg on the highway when in front-wheel drive. If you see yourself travelling on varied terrain in all types of weather, you can also choose all-wheel drive for added traction. The sole transmission on this model year is continuously variable (or CVT), which drives more like a traditional automatic with stepped gears.
Across its three rows, the Platinum is also bursting at the seams with premium inclusion, such as supple leather seating, heated front and rear seats, a heated power-adjustable steering wheel, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, and a convenient 120-volt AC power outlet in the second row. There's also a standard navigation system, a panoramic moonroof, cooled front seats, an Around View monitor, and a Bose premium audio system. Again, these are all standard features at the Platinum trim level, which is great value for the price.

As the end of the month nears, you watch with despair as the small trickle in your bank turns into a gush of funds spewing about. Your fixed expenses are sucking you dry and your attempts to curtail your spending prove fickle. Not to mention, gas prices continue to rise and your decade old vehicle is a guzzler.
Instead, why not consider a new-to-you all-electric vehicle, like a preowned 2017 Nissan Leaf SL? This one-year-old EV will not only impress you with its reliability and top-notch on-road performance, but it will also eliminate your monthly fuel costs since this vehicle is powered solely by electricity.
The 2017 Leaf runs on a 30 kWh, 360-volt lithium-ion battery, which delivers power to the 80 kW AC synchronous motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. Rather than relying on expensive gasoline, this plug-in vehicle is juiced up by the Leaf SL's 6.6-kWh charger, which restores the battery within less than six hours. On a full charge, you'll enjoy a 107-mile range, which is more than enough distance for regular commuting and errand-running in Seattle, Washington.
Inside the Leaf, you'll also enjoy many creature comforts that will help you feel good about your purchase. This includes automatic climate control and leather heated seats (even in the rear) for extreme weather days, as well as an AM/FM/CD audio system, 7-inch screen, USB and auxiliary inputs to keep you entertained on longer trips. Navigation is also standard, which is a nice-to-have feature already included with the vehicle.
To learn more about the 2017 Leaf SL, contact us at Kirkland Nissan to talk pricing and specs.
So, you’ve clung on to your beloved pickup for as long as you possibly can but it’s been literally rattling along down the road lately. Your security is arguably at risk and it’s time to move on to a hot new model. While we understand it will be hard to ever replace your outgoing truck, we feel you’ll be mighty comfortable in a gently used 2016 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X. It’s a wonderful road performer with some sensational standard features.
The beauty of the 2016 PRO-4X starts with the engine. It’s a 4.0L six-cylinder that pumps out 261 HP at 5,600 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 281-lb.-ft. at 4,000 RPM. As you speed down the streets, the six-speed manual transmission will be an absolute blast—it’s definitely not a snore, so to speak, like a mild-mannered automatic can be. Also, you’ll receive a 23 highway / 19 city average MPG.
Remember when we said you’d feel comfy and at home in this truck? Consider the fact that the premium cloth seats are heated in the front to keep your bottom warm in the chill of winter. Plus, your stress level will wash away once you realize there’s an onboard GPS navigation system active at all times to keep you safe on your way.
Ready for a rough-and-tumble truck, Seattle? We’ve got what you need—the 2015 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X. Make no mistake about what this truck is about: it’s designed and engineered to provide immense utility and reliable performance. We’re going to detail several technologies that make this possible below.
Standard on every Frontier that Nissan sells is a limited slip system. This works with the brakes to intelligently manage torque transfer between your tires. It also operates alongside electronic locking rear differential, which equally distributes power amongst the wheels whenever it is engaged. The driver has the option to utilize this via the press of a button on the interior’s center stack.
There’s more, however. Hill Start Assist saves you from any rolling when you’re on an incline. It will hold your Frontier still for several seconds even when the brake is disengaged, regardless of whether you’re prowling about in 2WD or 4WD. And naturally, the latter setting makes you the king of the trails, able to handle anything the backroads of Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue chuck your way.
Somewhat understandably, it isn’t often that you consider a sedan and think of it as a “performance machine.” We’re used to these vehicles being family-friendly autos that are practical but not exactly thrilling or finely tuned. However, that isn’t the case with the thoughtfully designed 2016 Nissan Altima 2.5 SR.
This sedan rocks out with a 2.5L four-cylinder motor—and just because it isn’t a V6 doesn’t mean it isn’t stellar. The engine produces 182 HP and 180-lb.-ft. of torque. Moreover, when paired with the continuously variable transmission (CVT), smooth driving is offered as a function of the way it reproduces gear ratios in a limitless fashion. Additionally, there’s a suspension bar that stretches between the strut towers, stabilizing the front end of the machine even at high speeds.
The SR trim of this 2016 Nissan Altima also includes a few nifty features that you won’t find on the base trim of the car. The front fog lights come through for you whenever you need to improve your visibility as you cruise through low-lying clouds. Driver lumbar support supports your lower back on lengthy trips. And hey, here’s a neat stylistic element that you can’t overlook—shiny, gleaming 18-inch aluminum wheels.

Space often proves to be a scarcity in the subcompact category with drivers and passengers struggling to find legroom and comfort. Confined quarters lead to cramped bodies and bent out of shape attitudes. Even the quickest jaunts around Seattle end in stiff joints and moods.
But not if you are behind the wheel of a 2012 Nissan Versa SV. This small sedan breaks the mold with an interior that's designed with your contentment in mind. Spats for space are a thing of the past!
According to KBB.com, the 2012 Versa boasts best-in-class rear legroom - even more than the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Lexus LS 460. In the front, there are 41.8 inches of legroom, while the back offers 37 inches. Whether you are transporting gangly teens or tall adults, you can do so with ease in this compact sedan.
And as we all know, passengers come with belongings and the Versa is quick to adapt. It features the subcompact category's largest trunk, swallowing up the competition with 14.8 cubic feet of cargo room. That's even bigger than the Versa's hatchback variant, which offers just 13.8 cubic feet.
Watch this video walkaround to see just how spacious the 2012 Nissan Versa SV truly is:
Don't let a small cabin and insufficient cargo room cramp your style. Slip into a preowned 2012 Versa SV instead. To compare pricing and specs, or to go for a test drive, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

If you're hungry for stand-out styling and performance, the 2016 Nissan Juke S is ready to satiate that need. It's unlike any other crossover in its category, boasting distinctive looks, an aerodynamic design and turbocharged power under the hood.
All 2016 Jukes, except for the sport-tuned Nismo RS, run on a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, which has been turbocharged for your driving enjoyment. It pumps out 188 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 177 lb-ft of torque at 2,000-5,200 rpm, delivering quick acceleration with each twist, turn and on-ramp. The motor comes mated to Nissan's CVT automatic transmission, which includes an S-mode that serves up six virtual gears for the most engaging ride quality. With the Juke's tight suspension and quick steering, even the most boring of commutes will feel like a day on the track.
And its looks are anything but lackluster too. The S trim level sports attractive 17-inch wheels which pop against the crossover's curvy body and sleek lines. The front end is amped-up with streaking headlight housings, while its rear is nipped and tucked. From the side, the roofline crouches as it moves rearward and is accented by color-keyed integrated rear-door handles that give the five-door Juke a coupe-like appearance. If turning heads is your modus operandi, the 2016 Juke is eager to play along.

If you need a practical economy car to run you to work and back or to tackle your weekend errands, consider the 2017 Nissan Sentra S as your next vehicle. Free from expensive frills, bells and whistles, this affordable used car is made for high mileage driving, and it is efficient too.
Under the hood, the base S trim comes equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 130 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque. The continuously variable automatic transmission helps the Sentra get up to speed with little effort, and the passing power is top-notch, especially when driving on the highway or accelerating onto an on-ramp. For those who enjoy a more engaging experience, a six-speed manual transmission is also available on the S trim, which is a nice-to-have feature if CVT isn't your cup of tea.
And when it comes to fuel economy, the 2017 Sentra certainly impresses. Mated to automatic, this vehicle fetches 29 mpg city, 37 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined, while the manual drops slightly to 27 mpg city, 35 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined. Either way, there's no need to fuss about a few lost mpg - the Sentra's numbers are strong enough to support decreased gas bills each month.
Off the lot, this sedan also offers attractive pricing, which is thousands less than its competition, making it a smart choice for cost-conscious drivers. To see if a preowned 2017 Sentra is right for you, contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to go for a spin.
Speed demons, take notice! This isn’t your everyday compact car. Instead, it’s a road-performing beast with a superior engine and a unique dedication to style and comfort. Seriously… the 2015 Nissan Juke NISMO RS is worth every bit of your attention, Seattle. Since its release, it’s definitely made its mark.
Perusing the exterior and interior of the 2015 Juke NISMO RS, you’re going to find a lot to like. Immediately, you’re grabbed by the gleaming 18-inch machined aluminum wheels with painted accents. The red and black contrasting body colors are attractive, too. Then, moving inside, you’re greeted by the luxury of Recaro seats clad in simulated suede/leather; they’re six-way powered for easy adjustability. Additionally, the Rockford Fosgate audio system includes a subwoofer for optimal sound output.
And then there’s the motor. The turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder cranks out 215 HP and 210-lb.-ft. of torque—it doesn’t play around. Moreover, the standard six-speed manual transmission gives drivers the thrill of stick shifting; this car wasn’t meant for an automatic. Finally, fuel economy is stellar. Even with all this power, the EPA estimates you’ll get an average of 31 highway MPG / 25 city.
