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.

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.
