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!

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.

The holiday season can put a strain on family budgets as gift-giving opportunities, travel and social commitments continue to mount. Throw in the need for a replacement vehicle and it can appear all too overwhelming. If you are feeling the pinch this Christmas, stop into Kirkland Nissan to view our extensive inventory of preowned all-electric plug-in cars, like a 2017 Leaf SV. This model boasts great affordability with zero gas costs, making it inexpensive to purchase and keep on Seattle’s roads.
The mid-range 2017 Leaf SV is powered by an 80-kW AC synchronous motor, which produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Instead of using fuel to generate its motor, the EV employs a 30-kWh battery, which is recharged by the upgraded 6.6-kW onboard charger or the DC fast-charger port. According to Edmunds, the Leaf will net you an mpg equivalent rating of 124 city and 101 highway. Your days of costly gas station visits will be a thing of the past in this eco-friendly commuter.
The SV trim also offers a lot of value with its list of standard features, which include slick alloy wheels on the exterior, as well as sustainably sourced, suede-like polyethylene terephthalate seats in the interior. A 7-inch touchscreen with navigation and NissanConnect makes it easy to access the information you need, while heated seats keep you comfortable on chilly nights. The EV boasts standard Bluetooth connectivity too, along with a rearview camera and a USB port for streaming audio and smartphone charging.

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.

Let’s start with what’s under the hood. The 2017 Leaf S is powered by an 80-kW AC synchronous motor that generates 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque.

This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs solely on battery power, while delivering a smooth and composed ride with an especially roomy interior.
Pop the hood on this preowned sedan and you won’t find an engine, but a charging port that juices up the 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack.

Inside, the Leaf dishes up a surprising amount of stretch out space since there isn’t a gas tank occupying the rear of the vehicle and the battery is tucked underneath the floor.

A distinctive design, whisper-quiet zero-emissions performance and an especially roomy interior have all earned the 2017 Nissan Leaf serious acclaim from automotive journalists and drivers alike.
