Huge thanks to the team at Key West Ford! This is my second lease (first one 4 years ago) and they knocked it out of the park again. Really easy to deal with & no BS, just really straightforward and honest. Being a single female this type of purchase can easily be intimidating and/or difficult but Peter Olson and the team (Mike & Michelle) made it seamless and left me feeling confident about my purchase. Thank you!
Bought a Ford Escape Titanium and was one of the best car buying experiences I have had. At 72 years old I have had a few. Great dealership, was never under any pressure to buy or make a deal, Peter Olson was very knowledgable on the vehicles I was looking at and Wes Upton was great to deal with. It was friendly and quickly finalized. All in all a totally super place to deal with.
My wife and I have now each bought 2 cars each from Key West in the last 9 years. Great experience dealing with this dealership.
Fantastic charismatic no pressure
Allan sold me a gently used honda the other day. This guy really wants everyone to be happy and comfortable. I felt he was totally looking out for my best interest and and he went way out of his way to do so from the umbrellas (cause it was raining) to the hot coffee to warm us up.. as well as getting me a really good deal on my car with minimal haggling. He really wants you to have the car at the best deal possible and I was more than happy with his service.. when I was ready to except the deal..he said "I'll get you out of here and driving your new car in 45 mins"!! .. and sure enough I was out of there 45 minutes later I was on my way home. It was a real pleasure dealing with Allan and I hope hes around next time I wanna upgrade.
No xxxxxxxx salestalk. It's a very welcoming place and the salesmen (Peter & Lino) were simply the best. My buying experience is as smooth as it should be...
I’m a very Happy Customer!!
Key West Ford
this is not my first visit here &’that’s because of the excellent service!! I would highly recommend a visit here before going elsewhere for your vehicle!!
The best choice
When I told Alan what I want and what was my financial condition he introduced me the best fit. A beautiful Mustang that I am extremely happy with . You can trust Alan.
Best sales experience with Peter Olson ever!
Peter Olson is the best sales person we have ever dealt with!He gave us all the information required to make a knowing decision on our vehicle. He did not have the vehicle we were looking for at first within our price range and kilometres. He kept us in the loop while he searched and found us our 2017 Ford Escape SE AWD which we love.
It took weeks to find us what we were looking for but it was worth the wait! We would not hesitate to recommend Peter Olson to our friends, family, and anyone who reads this. He is very honest and went above and beyond for us. Top Shelf!
Great Customer Service by Peter Olson. Went extra mile to help. And Nick at Finance was also friendly, fast and efficient! Family has been going there for years.

Is one of your resolutions for 2019 to tread softer on the environment? Why wait – start your eco-conscious lifestyle now behind the wheel of a 2017 Nissan Leaf S. This preowned model just hit our inventory and won’t last long. Seattle area drivers especially love this all-electric plug-in’s zero emissions performance and range – we think you will too!
Under the hood, the 2017 Leaf runs on a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that generates the 80-kW electric motor to create 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. On a full charge, that will net you a total of 107 miles, which is great for regular commuters or weekend errand runners. When it’s time to juice up, you won’t have to wait in line at the gas station. Rather, the 3.6-kWh onboard charger uses regular electricity to replenish the battery. Most drivers prefer to charge overnight on a 220-volt line, which takes about eight hours. However, upgrading to the 6.6-kWh charger can reduce your time to less than six hours.
Inside, the Leaf features supportive seating made from partially recycled cloth fabric, which adds to the vehicle’s eco-friendly appeal. Nissan’s Intelligent Key with Push Button Start and power accessories throughout add to your convenience, while the Automatic Temperature Control ensures that you always remain comfortable no matter the season. The S trim also boasts a remote charge port door release, a 12-volt power outlet and 16-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers.

Are you looking to trade in your sedan, but want to try something different? Consider giving a 2016 Nissan Leaf SL a closer look. This preowned all-electric vehicle is a great introduction into the plug-in segment with its exceptional range and quality features.
The 2016 Leaf runs on a 107-horsepower electric motor that gains its energy from the standard 30-kWh battery. According to U.S. News & World Report, the EV’s range sits at 107 miles, which is excellent for the class. That equates to a 124/101 mpg-equivalent (mpg-e) city/highway – you don’t see those numbers with a regular gasoline-powered vehicle! Battery refreshing is made possible by the on-board 6.6-kW charger, which will have you up and running in about six hours.
Inside the cabin, the top-of-the-line SL trim delivers all your must-have creature comforts – and some. Leather upholstery covers the heated seats, which warm weary winter bodies even in the back row, while automatic climate controls keep you just the right temperature year-round. A 7-inch touchscreen houses a navigation system and a six-speaker audio system with HD radio, plus Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity keep you in touch with loved ones. All this rides on upgraded 17-inch alloy wheels, which are complemented by automatic LED headlights, foglights and a rear spoiler with a solar panel.

Tired of having to track down the nearest gas station to fill your car with expensive fuel? Enjoy the affordability and predictability of an all-electric vehicle by purchasing a 2018 Nissan Leaf SL.
According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, EVs offer drivers added convenience since they can be “fuelled up” at home using a 220-volt charger. Not only is this easier for those with busy schedules, but relying on electricity to power a vehicle is much cheaper than traditional fossil fuels. You’ll also save on maintenance since battery-powered cars are engineered to be much simpler compared to conventional gasoline variants. With no oil changes to pay for, spark plugs or timing belts to replace, and engines to tune, keeping your Leaf on the road won’t cost you a fortune.
The 2018 Leaf runs on a 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor, which powers the 40-kWh lithium-ion battery to deliver 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Range on this model is incredible at 150 miles, plus you can refresh the battery in your garage while you sleep using the standard 6.6-kW onboard charger.

If you are seeking a preowned all-electric vehicle that drives more like a regular car, consider purchasing a 2013 Nissan Leaf SV. The U.S. News & World Report gave this plug-in vehicle top marks for its smooth and linear regenerative braking system, which isn’t commonplace for the segment.
The 2013 Leaf is fuelled by an electric motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Power is channelled to the front wheels through a single-speed transmission, allowing the plug-in to reach 60 mph in 10.2 seconds. According to the EPA, the Leaf can travel a full 75 miles on a single charge, which equates to a 129/102 mpg-equivalent. When it’s time to refresh the battery, the SV trim is equipped with an upgraded 6.6-kW onboard charger that requires only four hours when connected to a 220-volt outlet.
On the road, the Leaf drives with a calm precision that feels peppy when needed and smooth at cruising speeds. It is also extremely quiet since the powerplant is mated to a single-speed transmission that doesn’t shift. With competent handling and well-weighted steering, you’ll feel like you are driving a traditional car, but without the need for expensive gasoline. The regenerative braking system on the Leaf was also designed with good pedal-feel in mind.

If you’ve test driven the Toyota Prius or the Kia Optima Hybrid, but are holding out for a fully electric vehicle, consider the 2011 Nissan Leaf SV as your plug-in powered ride. This car is what started the EV craze in North America and has spawned two well-received generations since its unveiling in 2011.
Unlike conventional gasoline-powered vehicles, the Leaf runs on an 80-kilowatt synchronous electric motor that is generated by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is hidden under the cabin floor. Combined, this allows the EV to put out 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, while also reaching a range of 100 miles on a single charge. If you are a numbers person, that equates to an EPA equivalent of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway. For most Seattle area commuters and weekend errand runners, the Leaf’s range more than suffices.
On the exterior, the SV trim looks sharp with 16-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps. Inside, full power accessories are found throughout the cabin, while keyless ignition/entry and cruise control cut down on tedious tasks. For your comfort, the height-adjustable driver seat is complemented by a tilt-only steering wheel and automatic climate controls. Bluetooth is also standard on this trim level.
