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.

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.
Curious to see how it handles on Seattle’s city streets? Contact our team at Kirkland Nissan for your test drive in an all-new 2018 Leaf S.

If you’ve been researching preowned all-electric vehicles, but are having a hard time narrowing the field, allow us to turn your attention to the 2015 Nissan Leaf S. Right off the lot, this is an affordable option offering immense value from its many high-tech features, plus it boasts an 84-mile range, which is sure to get you to the office and back.
The 2015 Leaf S runs solely on a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which feeds the 80-kW electric motor. Together, this generates a hearty 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque without the need for expensive fossil fuels. Come recharging time, simply plug in the 3.6 kW onboard charger and you’ll be good to go in about eight hours. Most drivers like to schedule their battery refresh overnight, which is not only cost-effective, but will ensure that the Leaf is juiced up each morning.
The S level trim also offers great value since it comes loaded with some really useful features, even at the base level. This includes 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and seats, as well as a rearview camera and a 4.3-in monitor to help you navigate busy parking lots. There’s also a four-speaker sound system and Bluetooth connectivity included on this model.

If you’ve been skeptical about the drivability and range offered by an all-electric vehicle, consider giving the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL a try. This eco-friendly option is fully battery powered and boasts a 107-mile range, which is more than adequate for commuting or booting around Seattle, Washington.
Under its stylish exterior design lies an 80-kW motor, which generates power from the Leaf’s 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined, this allows the EV to deliver 107 horsepower and 187 lb of torque, and it can reach 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds flat.
Charging is managed by the Leaf SL’s quick-charge port, which comes standard and can be used with a high-power station to recharge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 30 minutes. However, if you are charging at home, the 6.6 kW charger and 30kWh battery take about five hours, which is reasonable for most drivers.
And seeing that the SL is a top-level trim, Nissan didn’t skimp on the details. Automatic headlights, foglights and a solar panel for efficient device charging are all included, as is leather upholstery, heated seats (even in the rear), and a cargo cover to keep your purchases secure.

If creeping fuel prices are dragging you down or you worry about the damage your old gas-guzzling sedan is causing the environment, quell your discomfort with a preowned 2013 Nissan Leaf SV. This all-electric plug-in runs solely on battery power, thus eliminating gas station visits and harmful emissions for as long as you own the vehicle.
The 2013 Leaf is powered by a 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, which is neatly hidden under the car’s floor. It generates power to the 80-kilowatt electric motor and produces a respectable 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. Even with its battery power, the Leaf EV is relatively quick off the line. According to The Car Connection, it achieves a 0 to 60 mph jaunt in 10 seconds and maxes out at 90 mph to conserve energy. Now, this is not "track star" performance, but it’s adequate for daily driving around Seattle, Kirkland and Auburn.
As for the 2013 Leaf SV’s range, you can expect to achieve 84 miles before you need to stop for a battery refresh using the standard onboard 6.6-kilowatt charger. In about four hours, you’ll be up and running again. The Leaf’s smartphone app makes it easy to manage your charging times, so you don’t have to stand around waiting. It will alert you when the EV is juiced up and ready to roll.

Do you have exciting summer day trips planned, but are on a modest budget? If so, consider a preowned 2015 Nissan Leaf S as your getaway car. This plug-in performer is not only cost-effective to purchase and own, but its all-electric powertrain eliminates the need for expensive gas station visits, making it an affordable vehicle to drive around the PNW.
Pop the “hood” and you won’t find a gas-powered engine in the Leaf, but a charging port that juices up the 24-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. This component sends electricity to the EV’s 80-kW electric motor, which generates power to the front wheels. With each acceleration, you’ll enjoy 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, which is quite impressive for a plug-in vehicle.
On a single charge, you can expect to achieve a total range of 84 miles or an EPA city/highway fuel economy equivalent of 126/101 mpge. When you need to juice up the battery, the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger can get you up and running in eight hours, but a faster-charging 6.6 kW version is available. And the cost of charging? Well, it’s about the same as your two-cup-a-day take-out coffee habit, only running you a few dollars in electricity costs. How’s that for affordable?

This plug-in performer runs solely on electricity and produces zero-emissions, making it a sensible choice for cost- and earth-conscious consumers in Seattle.
