Shopping a used sporty SUV for my wife met with Robert Klaus who did a great job on intro and test drive. Came back next day and completed the deal with Micheal and Michelle in finance. Peter Olson worked with Robert behind the scenes coordinating the whole adventure. Painless process, friendly low pressure easy to deal with folks. the whole team came out to see my wife off in her new car including all the management team and the owner himself, all stood there in the pouring rain to watch her drive away! Highly recommend Robert and Peter if youre out car shopping. old fashioned personal service gets it done.
Great service and price
Jeff spent a long time with us and was very friendly and patient without being pushy. We purchased a used car, and on delivery he noticed a warning light in the dash. The dealership took care of it promptly. After driving for a few weeks we’re very happy with our car. Highly recommended!
Friendly, honest and fast.
Sasha was great to deal with. He was informative, friendly and fun to deal with. He wasnt pushy at all. They were fair about pricing and the whole process was easy and quick. Nicholas who did my fianancing was a pleasure to deal with and I would have to say overall this was the best experience buying a new vehicle I have had.
Outstanding Customer Service & Popcorn
From the second I pulled into the parking lot the experience started... I was greeted as soon as I exit my vehicle and was shown vehicles that I was interested in... Customer Service is key for me and when I didn't received it to my standards at another dealership which was closer to home, I decided to try Key West Ford... I am happy to say that I made a smart decision and needless to say I left with a new vehicle that I'm very happy with... If you are looking for a new vehicle I highly recommend Key West Ford...
Organized and Quick
Second time buying a new truck with the guys at Key West Ford. I'm a busy person and they worked hard while I was unavailable to finalize my truck purchase. Peter Olson worked especially hard for me and I received what I asked for. Thank you!
The salesman was nice
I was so pleased with my experience here. I had my kids with me and it could have been worse. Arash was lovely to deal with. I didn’t feel like the manager really got us.
Great Better then before. Keep the good work up.
It was a great pleasure to have a sales person care about me as a client. The other workers at Keywest Ford were very present to deal with too. In the past the after care service was not good. Keywest has change for the the better. Sales people like Peter Olson are need in the car sales industry. Peter went above and beyond to make my experience to be a great one. I would recommend if you are look for a vehicle to go see Peter at Keywest ford. The team members At Keywest ford were very different to deal with compared to my last few experiences. The new team were great. Keep the good work up.
Excellent customer service!
Highly recommend Peter Olsen for sales. Super helpful and very authentic. Definitely one of my best experiences thus far.
Thank You, Peter!
very good service
I bought the truck by phone after finding it on line. Everyone there was very helpful once I got there. Robert Klaus is excellent and does great follow up to answer any questions.

If you’ve been wanting to switch from your traditional gas-powered vehicle, but have been wary about the range of an all-electric vehicle, allow us to turn your attention to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-in performer combines advanced battery technology with an aerodynamic design to achieve a 107-mile range on a single charge, which is considered the best in its class for the 2016 model year.
The Leaf zero-emissions EV is fuelled by a 107-horsepower 80-kw electric motor that powers the front wheels to produce a healthy 187 lb-ft of torque. It draws its energy from the lithium-ion battery pack, which is mounted under the cabin floor. This 30-kwh battery is where the Leaf gains its admirable range from. Previous model years were equipped with a 24-kwh battery that was only capable of offering double-digit range, which wasn’t practical for some drivers.
Efficiency on the SV model rings in at 112 MPGe or about $3 per charge, according to The Car Connection. With no need for gasoline, expensive fill-ups will be history and you’ll significantly reduce your carbon footprint as well.
Slip into something more enviro-conscious this spring. Schedule your test drive in a preowned 2016 Leaf at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington.

2016 marked the sixth year for the Nissan Leaf, making the EV an elder of plug-in performance in the mass-produced electric market. Yet, despite its mature age, this model remains a popular choice for Seattle area drivers who choose the Leaf for its longer range, quick charging and affordable price tag.
Take the SV trim, for example. This EV is powered by an 80-kW electric motor that produces 107 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque. The system draws power from a 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is a step-up from the base S model’s 24 kWh battery. This allows for 27 percent more range for the SV model, fetching an impressive 107 miles on a single charge.
Upgrading to the SV trim also gets you a standard 6.6-kW charger and a quick-charge port for less downtime, along with 17-inch alloy wheels for a more aggressive stance. Heated power side mirrors, a more efficient heating system for better range in cold weather, and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel are sure to add to your comfort, while the standard Nissan Connect EV telematics system, 7-inch touchscreen, and navigation offer great convenience on the road. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this 2016 Nissan Leaf SV!

The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric vehicle that has won the world over with its zero-emissions performance, affordable purchase price and comfortable interior. It's the vehicle that made EV powertrains accessible to the masses, allowing Seattle drivers to go farther on less. With no gas costs to worry about or range anxieties to quell, it remains a popular option in the preowned market - here and around the globe.
Take the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV as an example. This model is powered by a 30-kWh lithium-ion battery that sends electricity to an 80-kw electric motor, producing 107 horses and 187 lb-ft of torque. On a single charge, you can expect a 107-mile range at a jaw-dropping 112 MPGe. According to The Car Connection, that works out to just $3 based on the average U.S. electricity rate of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour. And it won't take you a long time to juice up the Leaf SV. It comes equipped with a 6.6-kw onboard charger that can refresh a fully depleted battery in about four hours from a 240-volt level two charging station.
What's more, the 2016 Leaf also comes very well-outfitted for the price. The SV trim boasts heated front seats, as well as comfortable upholstery made from recycled soda bottles. It also includes power door mirrors, chrome door handles, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a tailgate air deflector to reduce energy use at higher speeds. The central touchscreen on the SV is also larger (7.0 inches), and it includes navigation as standard along with Nissan Connect.

You're meeting a friend downtown for dinner and are running a few minutes late. All municipal parking lots are full, leading you back onto the main thoroughfare to find a spot on the road. As you inch your way along, you can feel dread setting in. You'd rather abandon your plans altogether than embarrass yourself with your horrible parallel parking skills.
Can you relate? Then allow us to introduce you to the 2016 Nissan Leaf SV. This plug-performer comes equipped with an Around View Monitor, which takes the strain out of navigating busy streets and parking lots.
It works by providing a virtual bird's-eye view of your surroundings, so you can see where you need to go even when your line of sight is compromised. The Around View Monitor uses four wide-angle cameras set up on the front, rear, left and right corners of the vehicle, providing a full 360-degree panorama. As you back in and out of your spot, you can do so with confidence, since every angle of your vehicle is visible, along with any potential hazards.

The Nissan LEAF is an all-electric vehicle. The included 24-kWh battery and one-speed automatic transmission offer up 107 horsepower and 187-lb.-ft. of torque. However, the true wonderment happens when you consider the EPA-estimated MPGe, which refers to the “miles per gallon gasoline equivalent,” or the average distance traveled per energy unit consumed. On the S model, this is 126 city / 108 highway for a combined 114. Fuel range is at 84. Amazing!
The LEAF offers far more than efficiency. Instead a five-inch NissanConnect screen comes standard (improving upon the 'no-display' design from the previous year). This delivers access to a variety of tech options, including:
Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling.
A Text Messaging Assistant.
USB Ports (which are compatible with smartphones, iPods, and other devices).
All of these features provide drivers with seamless media access - utilizing voice-activated interfacing and wireless digital links to improve every download. Economy and convenience combine.
