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.

Fall is an exciting time in the automotive world as word of next model year vehicles are released. Nissan recently announced pricing for the forthcoming 2019 Leaf plug-in and we have good news – the MSRP for all three trim levels of the world’s best-selling electric vehicle will remain unchanged from 2018.
It will also continue to boast the same 150-mile range and intelligent high-tech features, such as ProPILOT Assist and e-Pedal, but with the addition of an important standard safety feature, known as Rear Door Alert. It is the industry's first system that uses the horn, along with door sensors and a message displayed in the instrument panel, to remind drivers to check the back seat after the Leaf is parked. The goal is to prevent heat-related incidents with children and pets.
Pricing for the 2019 Leaf starts at $29,990 for the S trim, then works its way up to $32,490 for the mid-range SV grade and caps off at $36,200 for the top-of-the-line SL. Destination and handling is $895 for all models.
The 2019 Leaf won’t arrive at our dealership for a number of weeks. In the meantime, you are welcome to schedule a test drive in a 2018 model to get a taste of this EV’s plug-in power. To book your appointment, call us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.

If you are looking to slash your gas bills by switching to an all-electric vehicle, choose the EV that The Car Connection gave a 10 out of 10 for fuel economy – the 2018 Nissan Leaf! According to their review, this plug-in car is one of the most energy-efficient vehicles you can buy this year. Without a tailpipe or emissions, it’s also easy on the environment.
The 2018 Leaf S runs on a 40-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack sitting under the cabin floor, which delivers power to the 110-kilowatt motor to create 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. On a single charge, this will net you 150 miles or an energy-efficiency rating of 112 MPGe, which most Seattle drivers find perfectly adequate.
Battery refreshing is managed by a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which will have you up and running at 80 percent battery capacity in about 40 minutes, should you opt for the package with the CHAdeMO quick-charging port and a 120/240-volt charging cord.
Even at the base level, the S trim comes impressively well-equipped boasting a 5.0-inch display for the AM/FM/satellite radio audio system, which delivers premium sound through the four speakers. Hands-free calling is also made possible with Bluetooth pairing and there is a single USB port to keep your devices juiced up.
