Outstanding Dealership and People
Top notch Professionalism and Courtesy displayed by everyone involved in my deal, would recommend to anyone without hesitation, could not be happier with this Outstanding Dealership and People!!
First Time Purchase
As first time new car purchasers, my fiancé and I were delighted with the experience of purchasing our new 2018 Ford Escape. Peter made us feel at ease, and let us see a variety of vehicles, even going as far as pulling them out of their parking spots to let us see each and every car in a bit more open area.
Peter was kind, light-hearted and didn’t make us feel pressured into making any decisions. He was up front about the previous ownership of the vehicle we decided on, and even printed off the reports for us to keep. When we had further questions, he brought Wes over to meet with us and discuss the vehicle further.
It was so nice, being first time buyers, to have a pressure-free and up front conversation about our new purchase.
We highly recommend Peter, and the entire Key West team, to help you find your new vehicle!
Best Deal Ever
Friendly people,they set me up with a very nice deal! I‘m able to get everything done in one day!I would go to these guys again
Great Experience, Great Deal!
We arrived just before the dealership was to open and Jag came out and welcomed us in and helped us immediately. He quickly located the vehicle we were looking at and brought it to us. Jag was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
We decided on the vehicle and we worked out a great deal.
I also wanted to send a thank-you to Ivan and Gurj!
Overall we are very happy with our vehicle, very happy with our deal and extremely satisfied with our overall experience. I would have no problem recommending Jag and Key West Ford!
Exactly the vehicle we were looking for
Robert was extremely knowledgeable and personable from the first phone call to his most recent follow up call. We had done our research and were looking for a specific Ford F150 that could pull our fifth wheel trailer. Robert listened carefully and suggested that we come in and see the one used vehicle that met our criteria. Never pushy but friendly and excellent at his job. Wanted to make the deal but willing to negotiate and make sure that we satisfied with the process. Highly recommend Robert to any of my friends and thanks for making the buying experience pleasurable.

Shopping for a preowned all-electric vehicle, but feel overwhelmed with your choices and technical specs? Allow us to simplify the field by introducing the 2017 Nissan Leaf S to you. Boasting a plug-in powertrain and a longer battery range, this EV is a well-suited choice for Seattle urbanites.
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. Rather than relying on gasoline, the Leaf is energized by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery that can travel 107 miles on a single charge. When it’s time for a refresh, the onboard 3.6 kW charger can juice up a depleted battery in about seven hours when using 220V; however, an optional 6.6 kW charger is available for greater efficiency.
On the exterior, the S trim is appointed with 16-inch steel wheels and a rearview camera, which is handy while backing out of tight city spots. Inside, the front seats are heated for your comfort and the 60/40-split folding rear row makes way for a total of 30 cu.ft. of storage space. There’s also a 5-inch central display with Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for streaming audio and charging your smartphone. It’s very well-equipped for the price!

If your summertime bucket list requires the use of a reliable vehicle, but you’d prefer to drive a preowned option with an all-electric powertrain, the 2016 Nissan Leaf S is the car for you. Not only does this plug-in deliver zero-emissions performance, but it is bolstered by a sizable battery that is capable of travelling 84 miles on a single charge.
To be specific, the 2016 Leaf is equipped with a 24-kWh laminated lithium-ion battery that powers the 80-kw electric motor to produce 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. When it’s time to refresh the battery to regain another 84 miles, the S trim includes a standard 3.3 kW charger that will have you back on the road in eight hours. For most short-distance commuters or weekend adventurers, this is ample mileage to get around Seattle.
Inside, the 2016 Nissan Leaf S comes loaded with a number of cool features that promise to add to your comfort and convenience. This includes a 5.0-inch color display with NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, as well as a standard Bluetooth hands-free phone system with streaming audio and a text messaging assistant. Navigating tight parking lots and parallel parking spots is also a snap thanks to the back-up camera (shown below), which is included even at the base level.

If you are eager to reduce your carbon footprint by driving a zero emissions vehicle, the 2015 Nissan Leaf SV is a great preowned option for Seattle area commuters. Boasting 100 percent plug-in performance and great range, traditional fossil fuels will be a thing of the past with this EV as your chariot.
The 2015 Leaf SV gets its muscle from an 80-kW electric motor, which draws power from its 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this provides drivers with 107 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque, along with a range of 84 miles on a single charge. When you crunch the numbers, this equates to an EPA rating (MPGe) of 126 mpg city and 101 mpg highway or 114 MPGe combined. Amazing!
On the exterior, the SV trim is appointed with upgraded 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a sleek five-door design for a unique look that is all Leaf. Charging is managed by the 6.6 kW on-board charger that can be used with any 220V power source. It can fire up a fully depleted battery in about five hours, which is quite quick. A seven-inch display, six-speaker audio system, navigation, and the CARWINGS app integration are also standard on this mid-range trim.

At our dealership, we carry a wide range of preowned Leaf models, which are priced affordably, offer great range and run solely on plug-in power so you never have to shoulder expensive gas costs again.

Does the idea of driving a vehicle with an alternative fuel source pique your interest? If so, a 2018 Nissan Leaf S might just be your next plug-in car. Known as the best-selling EV across the globe, the Leaf is super-efficient and boasts a longer range than previous model year options.
Under its aerodynamic exterior, the 2018 Leaf S is powered by a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which fuels the motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this allows the all-electric vehicle to operate a full 150 miles before needing to recharge, which is almost twice the distance as the first-gen model, which was unveiled seven years ago.
When it does come time to recharge, the 2018 Leaf uses a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger that will have you up and running to 80 percent power in about 40 minutes when using a 50-kw CHAdeMO DC fast charger. However, with a 240-volt Level 2 station, charging time will increase to about 8 hours, which is considered average for the segment.

The all-electric vehicle market is becoming more saturated with options these days, but if you are looking to buy preowned, the solid choice is a Nissan Leaf. Known as one of the best-selling and established models, you can’t go wrong with this plug-in performer’s zero-emissions output and great features.
The 2013 Leaf SV is powered by an 80-kilowatt electric motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. It is electrified by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that allows the Leaf to achieve a 75 mile range on a single charge. When battery levels are depleted, the 6.6-kW charger will get you up and running again in about four hours using a 220-volt electricity source.
The SV trim also delivers a lot of value with an impressive list of standard features. On the exterior, upgraded 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, and foglamps give the Leaf a sleek look, while the inside is appointed with cloth upholstery made from recycled material and a six-speaker sound system with radio streaming. For your convenience, the SV also boasts a 7-inch touchscreen, navigation system and Nissan Connected, which is a remote vehicle access system that reports battery recharging data and can activate the climate control via your smartphone.

If you are seeking a top-of-the-line preowned all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2012 Nissan Leaf SL a closer look. Originally released in 2011, this zero-emissions car has grown to be one of the best-selling plug-in vehicles across the globe, delivering a spacious cabin, rich features and snappy acceleration to Seattle area drivers.
The 2012 Leaf runs on an 80-kilowatt electric motor, which delivers 107 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque. Instead of using traditional fossil fuels, the motor is powered by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is where the Leaf gets its zero-emissions performance from. But, don’t worry – this doesn’t equate to weak on-road dynamics. Rather, in Edmunds performance tests, the Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds, which is equivalent to a subcompact hatchback with automatic transmission.
On a single charge, you can expect to receive a driving range of 73 miles, which is suitable for most local commuters. In terms of efficiency, that equals an EPA rating (MPGe) of 106 mpg city/92 mpg highway or 99 mpg combined. You can’t get that type of performance from a gas-powered vehicle!
Inside, the SL trim is absolutely loaded with cloth upholstery made from recycled materials, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, navigation, and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface. On the exterior, the Leaf also boasts a spoiler-mounted solar panel, automatic headlamps, foglamps, and rearview camera to help you navigate busy parking lots. Now that’s great value!

If you’ve been pouring over online reviews about preowned all-electric vehicles, you may have come across complaints about poor range and extended charging times. But, don’t let these assessments steer you away from the segment – zone in on the Leaf EV instead.
Since its release in 2011, Nissan has been perfecting its best-selling plug-in vehicle with each model year. And for 2013, the automaker made some smart enhancements to the Leaf, allowing it to go farther and charge faster than earlier versions.
One of the key improvements to the 2013 Leaf is that it was engineered with an available 6.6 kW onboard charger, which cuts the 220V’s charging time in half to just four hours. For commuters, this is especially important since it allows them to refresh the EV’s battery while at work and have it ready for the drive home.
Nissan also improved the Leaf’s aerodynamics, allowing airflow to travel up and across the low compact hood, pass over the car’s shoulders and exit via the large rear spoiler. The result is less drag and better efficiency, which allows the Leaf to achieve 15 percent more range, totalling 84 miles on a single charge.
It drives beautifully too, with a whisper-quiet operation that Seattle drivers love. To experience it for yourself, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan to learn more about the 2013 Leaf SV today!

Are you ready to say farewell to expensive gas station visits and regular oil changes? If so, consider the 2017 Nissan Leaf S as your next enviro-friendly car. 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. It is responsible for powering the 80-kW electric motor that generates a healthy 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. According to The Car Connection, this performance allows the Leaf to reach 60 mph in just 10 seconds, which is quite quick for a plug-in car. As you drive around the streets of Seattle, Newcastle and Puyallup, you’ll also enjoy a whisper quiet cabin from the electric powerplant.
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. With room for five passengers, all occupants will enjoy nice leg room with 42.1 inches in the front and 33.3 inches in the back. There’s also 23.6 cubic feet of cargo room with all seats in place or 30 cubic feet with the second row folded down.
The 2017 Leaf S is a fantastic preowned choice for Seattle drivers. To learn more, contact Kirkland Nissan to schedule a test drive today.

Does the thought of driving an all-electric vehicle give you range anxiety? Do you have fears of being stranded on the side of the road with a dead battery? Take a deep breath – the 2018 Nissan Leaf S is here to quell all of your worries. New and improved for this model year, the EV now offers an extended range, allowing you to go farther than ever before.
The 2018 Leaf S is energized by a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which powers the motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this lets the plug-in vehicle run for 150 miles before needing to recharge, which is almost double the distance of the first-generation Leaf that was released in 2011.
When it does come time to refresh the battery, the 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger will have you up and running to 80 percent power in about 40 minutes when using a 50-kw CHAdeMO DC fast charger. However, if you are using a 240-volt Level 2 station, charging time will increase to about 8 hours, but many drivers use this time to juice up the battery overnight. By morning, you’ll be ready to tackle your busy commute with confidence – nothing is going to slow you or your EV down.
