These guys are the BEST! My Salesman, Peter was very helpful and not pushy, made my experience so great and easy. 20/10 recommend them to anyone!
2015 Ford Mustang
Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Peter Olson, Wes Upton & Nicholas Terezakis were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
My New Favourite Dealership!
My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable!
Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!
Great Kai and jag were awesome
Great. Worked with my schedual, very helpful. Got back to me fast about all my questions. And even went out a got a keepsake i forgot in my grade in.
Michael and Monina
The most seamless car buying experience with Peter Olson!
It was an awesome experience from the time we walked on the dealer lot to the time we drove home our car. Super friendly Ivan, super helpful Gurj and super salesman Peter!
Erick was very friendly and personable and it was a pleasure to do business with him. I would recommend him and Key West if you’re looking for a vehicle.
Happy with the Flex
Patient and Kind
I was extremely happy with most of the folks I spoke with during my time at Key West. It took me 3 days of visiting the dealership to make sure I was making the right decision on the vehicle for my needs and my budget. All staff but one understood that this purchase wasn't an easy one to make within my budget. Peter Olsen, Michael Nokes and Robert Klaus really understood why I needed to take my time and research all my options. I appreciated their kindness and patience and didn't feel at all pressured into the sale.
Helpful and honest dealers. Car was well inspected and in advertised good condition. Overall the service was good and the sale was fair. Dean was great!
I saw an ad for a F350 at the lot. The truck was not on the lot due to construction. It took a day to get the truck so I could see it. I made a deal and drove it away that afternoon. Happy with the vehicle. Sales person was new to Key West and lacked knowledge of all the options on the truck.

If you’re looking to trim your monthly vehicle expenses, especially your gas costs, make the switch to plug-in power by purchasing a 2019 Nissan Leaf SL. This all-electric platform is an ideal choice for budget-conscious drivers who wish to save on fuel, while also helping the environment.

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.
