I had the pleasure of doing business with Michael Nokes the sales manager at Key West Ford today. I wanted to personally thank him and recommend him and his team for the excellent service they provide. This is definitely the number 1 Ford dealership in the Lower Mainland. The team at Key West were professional and went above and beyond to advise and assist me with my new purchase. Thank you Michael Nokes and Key West Ford.
Jag and Kal were great to deal with! Both were professional and helped me every step of the way when I purchased my new vehicle. I would recommend these guys for sure.

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’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.
