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.

But, first, let’s talk efficiency since this is what drew you to an all-electric vehicle in the first place. The 2015 Leaf S is energized by a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which generates the 80-kW electric motor to produce 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque.

If you are looking for an affordable vehicle to purchase and keep on the road, you can’t go wrong with a preowned 2013 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer boasts a low purchase price, plus you’ll save on gas with its all-electric powertrain that doesn’t rely on expensive fossil fuels for its get-up-and-go.

If you’ve been considering an all-electric vehicle as your next commuter, but are concerned about range and ease of charging, allow us to quell your apprehensions with a test drive in a 2016 Nissan Leaf SL. This preowned plug-in is made for Seattle drivers with its 107-mile range and 6.6 kW standard charger.
The Leaf SL is anchored by an 80-kW motor, which uses a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack as its source of power.

If you are looking for an all-electric vehicle delivering great performance and agility on urban roads, the 2018 Nissan Leaf S is a natural choice. New for this model year, Nissan made some key improvements to the chassis and body of the hatch, which are sure to enhance your enjoyment on Seattle’s roads.
To start, Nissan engineers boosted the car's chassis for better stability. Heavy components, including the battery, were moved to the center of the vehicle’s body, which allow the vehicle to achieve smaller yaw moments of inertia. The result is better directional stability, which translates to smoother cornering.
Additionally, the 2018 Leaf’s electric power steering system was augmented for a more linear feel with better road feedback, while the urethane bump stop for the rear suspension was replaced by a rubber stop to reduce bumpiness on uneven terrain. The all-new Leaf is also equipped with Intelligent Ride Control for more precise electric motor torque regulation when cornering, thus reducing vibration while concurrently improving ride quality and steering responses.
Match all of this re-engineering with the 2018 Leaf’s improved 110 kW electric motor and 40 kWh Lithium-ion battery with an enhanced 150-mile range – it sure is tough to find a compelling reason to not test drive the world’s best-selling plug-in vehicle!

This plug-in vehicle runs solely on electricity, so it won’t add expensive gas costs to your monthly budget, plus it produces zero emissions from its battery-powered motor.
The 2016 Leaf S is anchored by a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery, which delivers 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque from the 80-kW electric motor.

Perhaps you’ve switched to a plant-based diet or have stopped using plastic in an effort to lessen your carbon footprint, but are still driving a gas-guzzling SUV and would like to get into something more eco-friendly? If so, allow us to introduce you to the 2013 Nissan Leaf SL. This plug-in performer relies solely on electricity to get you from A to B, while creating zero harmful emissions for our environment.

Even with plug-in power, you’ll still be able to enjoy quick acceleration. In Edmunds performance testing, the 2013 Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds.
When it comes time to juice up the battery, charging is managed by a 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which can refresh a fully depleted battery pack in roughly four hours. Range on the SL trim is estimated at 75 miles.
Inside, the Leaf offers many of the same comfort and convenience features of its gas-counterparts. In the SL trim, leather upholstery and a rearview camera are included, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and an intelligent access key fob.
