These guys are the BEST! My Salesman, Peter was very helpful and not pushy, made my experience so great and easy. 20/10 recommend them to anyone!
2015 Ford Mustang
Everything about my trip to Key West was great, Peter Olson, Wes Upton & Nicholas Terezakis were amazing to deal with. Super patient guys with a knack for customer service, never once did I feel like I was at a normal dealership, these guys made the car buying process super easy and not stressful.
My New Favourite Dealership!
My boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a new SUV, and we ended up being helped by Rob Vanoverschot. I was nervous about going to a dealership as I'd never purchased off of a lot before - and Rob made the process a breeze! He answered all of our questions and never made us feel pressured at all! We test drove about 6 different makes and models and fell in love with a 2019 Ford Escape. I would highly recommend Rob and Key West Ford, even the financing department and insurance department made this process enjoyable!
Not to mention they had the best prices around - and we came all the way out from Abbotsford!
Great Kai and jag were awesome
Great. Worked with my schedual, very helpful. Got back to me fast about all my questions. And even went out a got a keepsake i forgot in my grade in.
Michael and Monina
The most seamless car buying experience with Peter Olson!
It was an awesome experience from the time we walked on the dealer lot to the time we drove home our car. Super friendly Ivan, super helpful Gurj and super salesman Peter!
Erick was very friendly and personable and it was a pleasure to do business with him. I would recommend him and Key West if you’re looking for a vehicle.
Happy with the Flex
Patient and Kind
I was extremely happy with most of the folks I spoke with during my time at Key West. It took me 3 days of visiting the dealership to make sure I was making the right decision on the vehicle for my needs and my budget. All staff but one understood that this purchase wasn't an easy one to make within my budget. Peter Olsen, Michael Nokes and Robert Klaus really understood why I needed to take my time and research all my options. I appreciated their kindness and patience and didn't feel at all pressured into the sale.
Helpful and honest dealers. Car was well inspected and in advertised good condition. Overall the service was good and the sale was fair. Dean was great!
I saw an ad for a F350 at the lot. The truck was not on the lot due to construction. It took a day to get the truck so I could see it. I made a deal and drove it away that afternoon. Happy with the vehicle. Sales person was new to Key West and lacked knowledge of all the options on the truck.

In need of thriftier transportation to get around Seattle? Nothing beats the efficiency of a 2016 Nissan Leaf S! This plug-in all-electric vehicle runs on easily accessible household energy, eliminating the need for gasoline to power the battery-generated motor.
Pop the “hood” and you’ll see what we mean – the 2016 Leaf’s plug-and-play formula is void of a regular combustion engine. Instead, this preowned platform runs on a 24 kWh laminated lithium-ion battery to power the 107-horsepower 80-kW electric motor to deliver a range of 84 miles. For regular short-distance commuting or errand running, this is more than enough juice to get you on your way. When it’s time to recharge the battery, simply plug in the cord and the standard 3.6 kW onboard charger will be back to full capacity in about eight hours.
Worried that you’ll have to forego the latest tech and features by switching to an all-electric vehicle? You’ll be happy to know that the S trim comes outfitted with top convenience and comfort equipment. This includes a bright 5.0-inch color display and NissanConnect with Mobile Apps, as well as standard Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity. A rearview camera is included too, plus you’ll benefit from the Intelligent Key with Push Button Start. Cloth upholstery, 16-inch steel wheels, heated mirrors and full power accessories round up the EV’s offering.

To help you track your range and battery capacity, the Leaf comes standard with a remote vehicle access system called Nissan Connect. Other tech inclusions boast an advanced trip computer and a navigation system, as well as a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity.

This car is what started the EV craze in North America and has spawned two well-received generations since its unveiling in 2011.
