Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.
Excellent customer service!
Highly recommend Peter Olsen for sales. Super helpful and very authentic. Definitely one of my best experiences thus far.
Thank You, Peter!
very good service
I bought the truck by phone after finding it on line. Everyone there was very helpful once I got there. Robert Klaus is excellent and does great follow up to answer any questions.

Nissan Electric Vehicle News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
(Posted on Jan 12, 2019 at 03:07PM by Michelle Bogle)
Great news, Seattle! A longer-range Nissan Leaf is slated for release later this spring! Dubbed the Leaf e+, the all-electric plug-in vehicle will be able to travel 226 miles on a single charge (up from the current 150 miles) with its larger 62 kWh battery pack and higher output powertrain.
Available in S PLUS, SV PLUS and SL PLUS, the Leaf will generate 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque from the 160-kW electric motor. The charging equipment on this model has also been revised to include a new 70 kW Quick Charge System, which won’t require any additional time over the current model, even with the 55-percent more battery storage capacity.
Nissan revamped the e-Pedal system, as well, to account for the Leaf e+'s greater mass. The system will improve refinement and pedal modulation in reverse, and offer more regenerative braking overall, allowing drivers to stop more effectively using only the e-Pedal.
Around front, the e+ also sports a front fascia with blue highlights, while “Plus” badging accentuates the rear. Inside, the infotainment will be updated to include a larger 8-inch display and new software.
More details will be released about the e+ in the near future. To learn more, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, for a preliminary spec review.
