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.
We recently purchased a new Ford Escape and were impressed with the friendly and courteous service. Lino and Wes were very helpful and knowledgeable. They patiently and confidently answered our many questions and guided us through the process with ease. Thank you also to Jeff who promptly assisted us when we returned the next day with a couple of questions when Lino and Wes were not available. Overall, we appreciated the attentive service from all staff from our initial visit through the financing and insurance.
A Splendid Experience
These guys all really helped me out. Friendly, personable service, fair negotiators, and thorough in the orientation they gave me with my brand new car. They really gave me the attention I needed. Thank you very much fellas. Much appreciated. Keep it up!

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. As it takes to city streets and fast-flowing highways, it produces an impressive 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is quite exceptional for a vehicle that doesn’t use traditional fossil fuels. It’s snappy too, reaching 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds.
As mentioned, the SL trim comes equipped with a 6.6 kW charger, which can refresh a depleted battery to 100 percent capacity in about six hours. But, if that’s not fast enough, the Leaf SL is also fitted with a standard Quick Charge Port, which can charge a battery to 80 percent in about 30 minutes when using a CHAdeMO fast charger. Many urban areas are equipped with these public stations, making it easier for drivers to juice up their Leaf while on-the-go.
Make the switch to battery power this summer! To learn more about owning a Leaf EV, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington today.

Are you looking to downsize from your minivan into something more eco-friendly? Why not consider the 2018 Nissan Leaf SL as your next family vehicle? This next-gen all-electric plug-in performer runs solely on battery power, while also offering many high-tech features that promise to add to your comfort and convenience on the road.
The 2018 Leaf is bolstered by a 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor, which powers the 40-kWh lithium-ion battery pack for a total of 147 horses and 236 lb-ft of torque. Combined, this allows the front-wheel drive EV to achieve a 150-mile range on a single charge, which is the farthest that any Leaf model has traveled. Refreshing the battery is a snap too since it is equipped with a standard 6.6-kW onboard charger, which requires just 40 minutes to recharge to 80 percent.
On the exterior, the top-of-the-line SL trim boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights and unique turn signals in its door mirrors, while the interior is outfitted with leather seating for added luxury. On cool summer nights, the front seats and steering wheel are heated, while the Bose audio system with seven speakers is there for your family’s musical enjoyment.
A key highlight of the Leaf SL is the standard surround-view camera system, which provides added confidence in tight parking lots. A cargo cover also helps to conceal the hatchback’s 23.6 cubic feet of trunk space.

Why not consider the 2018 Nissan Leaf SV instead! With newer lower pricing and oodles of enhancements to its battery and motor, the Leaf allows drivers to go farther on less.
Under its sleek silhouette, which has been enhanced to look like a high-tech device, the 2018 Leaf features an improved 110-kW AC synchronous electric motor with front-wheel drive, which produces 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque.

The SV trim rides on upgraded 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, which are complemented by the exterior foglights for a slick appearance. Inside, a leather-wrapped steering wheel ensures your comfort, as does the Automatic Temperature Control with HVAC timer, allowing you to pre-heat/pre-cool the cabin. You’ll love the convenience features as well, such as the 7.0-inch capacitive touch-screen display, NissanConnect with Navigation featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, NissanConnect Services Powered by SiriusXM, and Intelligent Cruise Control.

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!

Are you looking for a smart way to green up your commute? Then you can’t go wrong with a 2016 Nissan Leaf S as your eco-friendly chariot. 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. Charging is managed by the standard 3.6 kW onboard device that can juice up a fully depleted fuel cell in about eight hours. For most commuters working a nine-to-five job, that’s a reasonable amount of downtime. When the Leaf is fired up and ready to go, it promises a range of 84 miles.
Inside, the base S trim comes very well-outfitted with a 5.0-inch color display and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps. There's also a standard Bluetooth phone system and streaming audio, as well as a hands-free text messaging assistant and USB connector. You’ll love the convenience features too, like the RearView Monitor, which aids in busy parking lots, and the Intelligent Key with Push Button Start. With the 2016 Leaf, you really can just plug and play!

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.
Under the hood, you won’t find a typical engine in the 2013 Leaf; rather, it boasts a 24kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an 80kW motor, delivering 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. But the differences stop there – as soon as you throw the car into drive, you’ll notice that it handles just like any other gas-powered vehicle, except (of course) for its whisper-quiet operation. 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. The exterior looks sleek and stylish with its 17-inch alloy wheels and roof spoiler over the tailgate, which features a solar panel to help charge small devices in the car.

This zero-emissions EV will ease you into all-electric driving, while also offering great range and a host of high-tech features that you expect in a car.
The 2016 Leaf is powered by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which feeds the 80-kW electric motor to generate 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Compared to older model Nissan plug-ins, this EV can travel 27 percent farther with a total range of 107 miles. When it’s time to refresh the battery, the SV trim includes a 6.6 kW onboard charger, which will get you up and running in about five hours. For most Seattle commuters and errand runners, this is more than adequate.
Inside, the Leaf SV is decked out with some cool tech inclusions, like a 7-inch central touchscreen with navigation and a Nissan Connect EV telematics system, which remotely monitors your charging status. There’s also heated front seats and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel for your comfort, along with heated power sideview mirrors and a back-up camera for your convenience.

If you’re on a quest to reduce your carbon footprint and swap your commuter for something more efficient, consider a 2013 Nissan Leaf SV as your first plug-in vehicle. This preowned performer features an all-electric powertrain with zero emissions, making it a smart choice for eco-conscious Seattle drivers.
The 2013 Leaf is bolstered by a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which stores energy to generate the 80-kilowatt electric motor.

This equates to great on-road acceleration – in fact, in Edmunds performance tests, the Leaf went from zero to 60 mph in 10.2 seconds, which is almost segment leading. Range is respectable too, coming in at 75 miles on a single charge.
When it's time to refresh the battery, the SV trim is equipped with an upgraded 6.6-kilowatt onboard charger, which will have you up and running in less time (about four hours) compared to the base model.
