This is the second time we bought a vehicle here and as always we were satisfied with the huge help and there service. Peter Olson was very helpful and listened to what we were looking for. We were very comfortable with him. He answered our concern and really take above and beyond to find what we were looking for. We are very happy with our new truck and pretty we will come back here again.
Professional and polite salesperson
This dealership was top notch! Mr. Olson went above and beyond to make sure I purchased the car I was most comfortable with. He gave me suggestions and his advice, but was in no way pushy what-so-ever. After I decided on a Chevrolet Malibu the process is quick and professional. I felt like family by the end of the whole process! I would recommend this dealership and Peter Olson in particular as he is the best Salesman I've ever met.
Sales person Robert Klaus is FIVE STAR
Robert Klaus is a professional. I felt like he answered all of my questions with honesty. Being able to purchase, register and insure the vehicle all in one location is convenient and saves time and money.
Also, while I was there I purchased a part for my other vehicle from their large service department. They had the item in stock where all the other providers had to order it in.
Great friendly dealership
Super friendly dealership, huge inventory of used cars, you will have no problem finding what you’re looking for. Dealt with Peter Olson who is a sales guy and he was awesome, super friendly and probably the least pushy sales guy I’ve ever met which was nice.
Best sales person in Canada. Has full knowledge about each and every car. I would recommend each and every friend of mine to go to him and buy a car. Loved my experience working with him. Good job sir!
Kevin & Dennette
Thank you Allan Prpic, weel done !!
Allan did an amazing job representing the dealership and his industry. As one who has been to many dealerships through the decades this experience was the best I/we have had. No pressure, no talking over us or our suggestions, only working towards finding a solution that would meet the family’s needs. Allan has set high bar for sale persons to follow; respectful, industry knowledge, courteous, and most of all his mannerism throughout the process were all why a sale was made. We could have bought a car anywhere, but we purchased it here from Allan Prpic.
Thank you, Allan it is because of your qualities Dennette’s father now has a vehicle that will last him for many years and give us piece of mind when he is out and about.

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.
Inside, the SL is designed with your convenience in mind and boasts a number of high-tech features that are sure to add to your enjoyment. This includes a surround-view camera system to aid in busy parking lots, as well as a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, navigation, and a Bose audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

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.
Curious to experience this plug-in vehicle for yourself? Contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for your test drive in a preowned Leaf EV today.

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.
This fall, slip into something more eco-friendly by purchasing a preowned Leaf from our team at Kirkland Nissan in the Seattle, Washington, area. To schedule your test, call us today.

If you are seeking a new all-electric vehicle offering the latest styling and increased range, consider a 2018 Nissan Leaf SV as your next car. The Car Connection gave this plug-in performer an overall seven-out-of-10 score, hailing the Leaf for its good looks and economy.
The 2018 Leaf is powered by an upgraded 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which generates the 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor to produce 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. With the enhanced power cell, the 2018 model can travel a full 150 miles, which is farther than past variants. Economy is excellent too, ringing in at an EPA energy equivalent rating of 112 MPGe. When it is time to refresh the battery, the standard Quick Charge Port will get you back up to 80 percent capacity in only 40 minutes.
According to The Car Connection, the 2018 Leaf also features a more conventional design that EV shoppers seem to love. The curvaceous shape and bug-eyed front lights of the previous generation are gone, while the body is now accentuated with Nissan’s signature floating roof, chevron-shaped taillights, and a deep V-shaped grille.
Inside, the SV trim delivers all the comfort and convenience features you can’t live without, including adaptive cruise control, navigation, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. There is also a six-speaker audio system for your musical enjoyment, plus a 7.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth pairing.

We all want to do our part to help the environment, but stretching our dollars to do so can be difficult. Organic produce and ethically-sourced products can come with heftier price tags, and switching to more eco-friendly transportation can be unreachable for some.
But not if you choose a preowned 2012 Nissan Leaf SL. This plug-in electric vehicle produces zero emissions and it’s also affordable to purchase and own. It’s an accessible and reasonable option for Seattle area conservationists wanting to ditch expensive fossil fuels and tread softer on the earth.
The 2012 Leaf pulls its energy from an 80-kilowatt motor that is fed by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this allows the EV to produce 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, while dishing out 73 miles of range on a single charge. If you are familiar with EPA ratings, this equates to an equivalent of 106 mpg city and 92 mpg highway or 99 mpg combined. When it’s time to “refuel”, a visit to a high-voltage charging station will juice up the battery to 80 percent capacity in about 30 minutes. You won’t have huge lags of downtime in this EV.
The SL trim boasts numerous earth-friendly touches that you are sure to appreciate, like comfortable cloth upholstery that is made from recycled materials and a solar panel mounted to the rear spoiler that keeps your devices charged. The 2012 Leaf is also equipped with numerous tech-inclusions to keep you safe and connected on the roads, including a rearview camera, Bluetooth capabilities and a navigation system.

If you are in the market for a new all-electric vehicle, but are basing your decision solely on the brand with the most established reputation, then look no further to the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL. This EV has been on Seattle’s roads since 2011 and quickly earned itself a top spot on the sales charts. Just this year, an all-new next-gen version of the Leaf was unveiled, bringing with it a more powerful electric powerplant and increased range.
The 2018 Leaf SL is anchored by a 40-kWh laminated lithium-ion battery hidden under the cabin floor, which generates power to the high-response 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor. Together, this allows the EV to produce a remarkable 147 horses and 236 lb-ft of torque, which is more robust than past models. The driving distance increased as well, netting motorists an EPA-estimated range of 150 miles.
Nissan also improved the EV’s design with a low, sleek profile that gives it a sharp, dynamic look. Familiar styling features also include the brand’s signature boomerang-shaped lamps and V-Motion flow in the front. The SL trim is appointed with outside heated mirrors with integrated turn signals on the exterior as well, along with leather-appointed heated seats in the cabin, which are six-way power for the driver. Safety features on this model include ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal technologies.

Last week, we announced exciting pricing news about the upcoming release of the 2019 Nissan Leaf all-electric plug-in vehicle and since then some customers have inquired about the availability of a Leaf E-Plus. Right now, details remain thin about this longer-range EV, but there have been some recent reports that have divulged a few details, which we are happy to share with you.
According to The Torque Report, the 2019 Leaf E-Plus will not only offer a longer range, but generate more power as well. Right now, the regular Leaf delivers a range of 150 miles, but the E-Plus variant will jump to 225 miles. It will also build upon the current EV’s 147 horsepower electric motor to output 200 horsepower with the Leaf E-Plus. An upgraded 60 kWh battery is also expected, which is an improvement from the Leaf’s 40 kWh battery, which will enable the vehicle to better manage its energy stores and traveller longer distances.
Again, details about the 2019 Leaf E-Plus remain minimal for now. As more information is released, we’ll be sure to share it on our blog. In the meantime, we are eagerly awaiting stock of 150-mile range Leaf models and we know that you are too.

Fall is an exciting time in the automotive world as word of next model year vehicles are released. Nissan recently announced pricing for the forthcoming 2019 Leaf plug-in and we have good news – the MSRP for all three trim levels of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle will remain unchanged from 2018.
It will also continue to boast the same 150-mile range and intelligent high-tech features, such as ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, but with the addition of an important standard safety feature, known as Rear Door Alert. It is the industry's first system that uses the horn, along with door sensors and a message displayed in the instrument panel, to remind drivers to check the back seat after the Leaf is parked. The goal is to prevent heat-related incidents with children and pets.
Pricing for the 2019 Leaf starts at $29,990 for the S trim, then works its way up to $32,490 for the mid-range SV grade and caps off at $36,200 for the top-of-the-line SL. Destination and handling is $895 for all models.
The 2019 Leaf won’t arrive at our dealership for a number of weeks. In the meantime, you are welcome to schedule a test drive in a 2018 model to get a taste of this EV’s plug-in power. To book your appointment, call us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.

If you are looking to slash your gas bills by switching to an all-electric vehicle, choose the EV that The Car Connection gave a 10 out of 10 for fuel economy – the 2018 Nissan Leaf! According to their review, this plug-in car is one of the most energy-efficient vehicles you can buy this year. Without a tailpipe or emissions, it’s also easy on the environment.
The 2018 Leaf S runs on a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack sitting under the cabin floor, which delivers power to the 110-kilowatt motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. On a single charge, this will net you 150 miles or an energy-efficiency rating of 112 MPGe, which most Seattle drivers find perfectly adequate.
Battery refreshing is managed by a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which will have you up and running at 80 percent battery capacity in about 40 minutes, should you opt for the package with the CHAdeMO quick-charging port and a 120/240-volt charging cord.
Even at the base level, the S trim comes impressively well-equipped boasting a 5.0-inch display for the AM/FM/satellite radio audio system, which delivers premium sound through the four speakers. Hands-free calling is also made possible with Bluetooth pairing and there is a single USB port to keep your devices juiced up. If you prefer a few more bells and whistles, you can opt for the all-weather package with heated front seats, steering wheel, and mirrors, plus heater ducts to the rear.
