The salesman and other staff were friendly knowledgeable and efficient.
Would recommend the dealership. I got a good deal and the selection was outstanding. I live on Vancouver Island and the price was better here.
From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford.
I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day.
Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time.
Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.
Great service from Pete & Brian
We bought two used cars, one from Brian and one from Peter. Both took their time to search for the right car and we went with each car on a test drive.
Peter Olson was very helpful with everything took his time to explain and show all.
Management team was remarkable.
This place is a friendly and amazing place to be.
Recommend to everyone that want to have a amazing experience like myself.
Great service from the staff a Key West Ford. I was surprised to pick up vehicle with a fill tank of fuel alot of dealerships don't do this anymore.
Search over !!!
Going above and beyond to satisfy
Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for.
All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful
Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.
Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics.
We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal.
The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new.
We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.
Review of sale service
I had an exceptional experience dealing with the whole team at key west Ford, especially Jag and Nicholas T. They went above and beyond to help us get our new vehicle!! I would recommend to others for sure.
Excellent customer service
Peter was an ideal salesman. He was friendly, helpful and put us under no pressure. We got a great deal on exactly the right car.

Each year, April 22nd marks Earth Day across North America – an important celebration where we honor our environment, look for new ways to incorporate sustainability into our daily lives and give the Earth some TLC with community clean-up initiatives. If you’ve been looking for a way to make your commute greener this year, consider a 2015 Nissan Leaf as your next eco-friendly vehicle.
Under its sleek and stylish exterior rests an 80 kW AC synchronous electric motor with a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery that generates 107 horses and 187 lb-ft of torque. Charging the EV takes about eight hours with the base 3.6 kW onboard charger, but you can upgrade to a 6.6 kW version, which will reduce the battery refresh time to five hours.
Inside, the interior of the S trim is nicely appointed with heated seats throughout the cabin and a 4.3-inch display, which gives a clear view as you back out of parking spaces using the standard rearview camera. Bluetooth connectivity also enables hands-free calling, while premium sound is delivered via the four-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system with USB and auxiliary inputs.
This Earth Day, call a 2015 Nissan Leaf S your own. To schedule your test drive in this preowned EV, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to compare pricing and specs.

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. If you haven’t test driven one, we suggest you check out the SL trim level, which boasts impressive range from its plug-in-powered motor.
Unlike traditional vehicles that utilize expensive gasoline, the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL is electrified by a 30-kWh battery which supplies energy to the 80-kW AC synchronous motor. Together, they generate 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, and can go 107 miles on a single charge. When it comes time to refresh the battery, the Leaf is equipped with a 6.6-kW onboard charger that can renew a fully depleted battery in about four hours from a 240-volt Level 2 charging station.
On the exterior, the SL trim boasts stylish LED headlights, which use little energy for illumination, and an aerodynamic body that reduces drag. Inside, the Leaf comes equipped with leather heated seats throughout, a NissanConnect 7-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity for your comfort and convenience. A surround-view camera system and premium Bose stereo system are optional add-ons as well.

Owning a vehicle comes with a lot of costs – there are the usual suspects like financing and insurance fees, as well as regular maintenance and repairs. Add in rising fuel prices and it can feel like your pay check disappears before it even hits your bank. And, if you are driving an older model year gas guzzler, it certainly might!
Instead, why not consider a preowned all-electric vehicle, like a 2015 Nissan Leaf SL? This battery-powered performer will not only excite you with its range and smooth performance, but it will also eradicate expensive gas station visits for as long as you own the car.
The 2015 Leaf runs on a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery, which sends electricity to the 80 kW AC synchronous motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. Charging is managed by a 6.6-kWh charger, which restores a fully depleted battery in four hours when a 240-volt Level 2 charging station is used. DC quick-charging is also optional, which lets you recharge the battery to 80 percent of capacity in about 30 minutes at more than 500 CHAdeMO sites nationwide. The range on the 2015 Leaf SL is rated at 84 miles and will only cost you a few dollars in electricity costs – less than your daily premium take-out coffee.

A distinctive design, silent operation and a roomy cabin make the 2017 Nissan Leaf SL unlike any other vehicle on Seattle’s roads. If you’ve been thinking of slipping into something more efficient, consider test driving a preowned model at Kirkland Nissan.
Powered by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor, the 2017 Leaf produces 187 lb-ft of torque without a single drop of gasoline. This EV draws its energy from a 30-kwh battery, which is neatly tucked under the cabin’s floor, and can be recharged from a fully depleted status within five hours using a 240-volt plug. All told, this will net you 107 miles of range or about $3 in charging costs. Expensive gas station visits are history with this plug-in as your eco-friendly chariot.
The Leaf’s sleek body is aero-driven in order to maximize efficiency, while the hatchback design offers acres of rooms inside the cabin. The back seat offers ample stretch out space for two adults (or three in a pinch), thanks to its 106.3-inch wheelbase. Even the Leaf's cargo area is deeper than you might expect, boasting 30 cubic feet of haulage with the rear row folded down or 23.6 with it in place.
Range, efficiency and versatility are the hallmarks of the 2017 Leaf SL. To see if this EV might be the one for you, contact our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive.

If you’ve been wanting to switch from your traditional gas-powered vehicle, but have been wary about the range of an all-electric vehicle, allow us to turn your attention to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer combines advanced battery technology with an aerodynamic design to achieve a 107-mile range on a single charge, which is considered the best in its class for the 2016 model year.
The Leaf zero-emissions EV is fuelled by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor that powers the front wheels to produce a healthy 187 lb-ft of torque. It draws its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted under the cabin floor. This 30-kwh battery is where the Leaf gains its admirable range from. Previous model years were equipped with a 24-kwh battery that was only capable of offering double-digit range, which wasn’t practical for some drivers.
Efficiency on the SV model rings in at 112 MPGe or about $3 per charge, according to The Car Connection. With no need for gasoline, expensive fill-ups will be history and you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint as well.
